The talk around the Joss Whedon thing has been interesting. I don't think his cheating makes him less feminist, but it does sound like he was taking advantage of some pretty iffy power dynamics by sleeping with young women on set whose boss he was. I love some of Whedon's work, but like you, I wasn't tremendously surprised by anything in the article. :(

I AM SO EXCITED FOR DAVID TENNANT TO PLAY CROWLEY okay good talk.

Jenny,
Yeah, the Joss Whedon thing. I don't know all the nuances of the term "feminist" but I do know that if he was cheating on his wife (and/or exploiting power imbalances to do so) he IS A BIG FAT JERK.
And that hurts me to say, because I think "Firefly" was one of the most beautiful examples of both TV and genre ever. But, as always, it's important to remember that just because people can produce beautiful things, does not mean they are incapable of doing shitty things. I call it the J.D. Salinger Rule.
I'm always excited to see David Tennant in absolutely anything!
