I just saw Joss Whedon interviewed on Charlie Rose (it was the last segment of the show).  They discussed Shakespeare, and Much Ado, and it was brilliant.  :D

I can't find any clips of it online, but if anyone else does, go ahead and post them here.  :)

In the meantime, if anyone can catch a rebroadcast of tonight's ep, maybe during the day tomorrow, it's worth it!  :cool:  (It's just the last 20 minutes or so.)

SFG  :hehe:

Nothing on YouTube yet. Maybe it's on On Demand. What network carries Charlie Rose?

In a similar vein, I saw the second half of an interview today on Turner Classic Movies that Elvis Mitchell did with Quentin Tarantino.  The guy's nuts, but very interesting and knowledgeable.

I'm upset because the movie comes out in two days and I can't find any local listings for it in my city. Then again, most of the showtimes for Star Trek Into Darkness didn't show up online until the day it came out, so I'm hoping that's the case here as well. There's a local theater, not far from the university, that tends to carry smaller independent and art films, and I'll be quite surprised if they don't carry it at some point.

They are releasing it in stages. Friday it's just New York, LA and San Francisco (or maybe Chicago--I know it's just three,) Then it is going to roll out in more and more cities through June 21. Joss has tweeted that the big city opening grosses may determine how many cities it plays in.

I would imagine you'd get it in Cincinnati, Christopher. I have fewer hopes for Columbia unless our non-profit art cinema books it. On the bright side, I will be in NYC the weekend of June 27.

It's on PBS.

You know, I think Whedon fans must have crashed Charlie Rose's website after that interview, because at the time I posted, it just said the "server would not respond", LOL!  :freakoutnonny:

But it's back up now!  Here is the schedule page with links to video from several recent shows, and here is the clip of the whole interview!  :D  Enjoy!

:howling: :howling: :howling:


Also, Hulu has recent full episodes, but they appear to be delayed by few days.  Look for the June 4th ep, it should be posted soon.  :)

I'm surprised by his assessment of Branagh. My memory of Branagh's Hamlet was that he totally failed to interpret the soliloquies in an interesting way, but just gave very one-note recitations, saying the words without really expressing their meaning.

^^  Cool.

Thanks for the links, Sci-Fi Girl. I'll try his website, because Hulu never works right for me.

Well, remember he's talking Branaugh's Henry V, which really did make sense out of everything, even the whole argument put forth by the church to rationalize Henry's claim to France's throne (i.e. all claimants are descended from the female, so all have equal claim).  And what I really liked was the opening bit where it was put forth that the whole war in France was meant to distract Henry from the proposal then being discussed of seizing church lands for their revenues.  This is something that was wholly omitted from Olivier's production.

Yeah, I do vaguely recall liking Branagh's Henry V better than Olivier's.

Meanwhile, it annoyed me that Charlie Rose thought his name was Josh Whedon. I guess Whedon has gotten so used to being called "Josh" that he doesn't bother to correct people anymore.
