The light on their faces: Mal is cragged, often shadowed, but strong, sad-eyed and kind. Kaylee is round, warm, and open. Sexuality and honesty. River is planed, underlit, eyes hooded. She’s a question. Simon works in angles as well, coolly handsome and hard to connect with - but ultimately he’s a romantic. Jayne doesn’t give a good goddamn how he’s lit. Zoe glows. She cannot help it. Wash is light, playful - often amongst his screens or slightly blown out by the sun of high atmosphere… Inara’s light is complex, like Mal’s. Hiding and beckoning.

The Friday Poll - So who is the greatest Joss Whedon character?

The Joss Whedon penned ‘In Your Eyes’ will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. According to The Wrap

The New York City indie fest, which begins in April, announced the second half of its slate on Thursday, with several marquee talents set to premiere films during the 11 day run, including established directors who are serving as screenwriters this time around.

Joss Whedon, whose attention has largely turned to the Marvel Universe, is the writer behind the Brian Hill-directed film “In Your Eyes,” which features Zoe Kazan as “East Coast housewife Rebecca who lives a comfortable, sheltered life, but always knew there was something special about herself” whose world collides with “charismatic ex-con Dylan” played by Michael Stahl-David.

“The point is always that the truth is more important than the power structure, and whether you make a dent or not, the fact that you succeeded in trying is a victory.”

right now Joss Whedon is probably trying to get the Avengers cast to do a scene and stop messing around and actually listen to him for once and that just makes me happy

Yup.

Some of you may have heard the hilarious news. I thought this would be a good time to weigh in. to answer some obvious questions: No, we had no idea this was coming. Yes, we will finish out the season. No, I don’t think the WB is doing the right thing. Yes, I’m grateful they did it early enough for my people to find other jobs.

Yes, my heart is breaking.

When Buffy ended, I was tapped out and ready to send it off. When Firefly got the axe, I went into a state of denial so huge it may very well cause a movie. But Angel… we really were starting to feel like we were on top, hitting our stride — and then we strode right into the Pit of Snakes ‘n’ Lava. I’m so into these characters, these actors, the situations we’re building… you wanna know how I feel? Watch the first act of “The Body.”

As far as TV movies or whatever, I’m not thinking that far ahead. I actually hope my actors and writers are all too busy. We always planned this season finale to be a great capper to the season and the show in general. (And a great platform for a new season, of course.) We’ll proceed ahead as planned.

I’ve never made mainstream TV very well. I like surprises, and TV isn’t about surprises, unless the surprise is who gets voted off of something. I’ve been lucky to sneak this strange, strange show over the airwaves for as long as I have. I don’t FEEL lucky, but I understand that I am.

Thanks all for your support, your community, and your perfectly sane devotion. It’s meant a lot. I regret nothing (except the string of grisley murders in the 80’s — what was THAT all about?) Remember the words of the poet:

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the road less traveled by and they CANCELLED MY FRIKKIN’ SHOW. I totally shoulda took the road that had all those people on it. Damn."

See you soon.
