"At last, we can retire and give up this life of crime." -- Zoe, 'Serenity'

TV It might not have escaped you're attention that Joss Whedon's finally been handed a commission for a new tv show with Eliza Dushku in the lead role. He's commented at the church's website and seems very happy about the whole thing as well he might after working on the whole Wonder Woman thing for months before the studio predictably decided to go in another direction.

The details are here and although it has hints of other things in its DNA, Joss and the gang will no doubt put their own spin to it and I don't think there is anything that the writer's done which hasn't had something fabulous about it. But I'm a disciple so I'm bound to say that.

My only real concern comes from a film and tv studies place in terms of the treatment of the protagonist and how the audience is going to empathise with what sounds like a character with a range of different personalities. Will we treat them as separate individuals and sympathise with the whole 'ensemble' or is that too much of a leap?
