Joss Whedon screened his delightful Shakespeare adaptation "Much Ado About Nothing" at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival on Saturday afternoon, but during a post-screening question and answer session, one intrepid audience member had little interest in the Bard's tale. Austin resident Peyton McLeod wanted to know if Whedon, the geek master of the universe behind "Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Firefly" and "Marvel's The Avengers," had ever watched "Lost."
"Settle in, people," Whedon said as the audience at the Vimeo Theater inside the Austin Convention Center laughed. Was Whedon about to throw the polarizing series, produced and co-created by fellow geek icon J.J. Abrams,, under the bus?
"I've never seen it," Whedon said, to some surprise. "I missed out on a lot of culture: you either make TV or you watch it. So, yeah I've never seen it."
That doesn't necessarily mean Whedon didn't have at least some awareness about the popular show. »
