Subtle, but true to character...
Tuesday, February 14, 2006

I was watching the deleted scenes on my Serenity DVD and, while in intense Adam-focus mode (wherein I watch only him during a scene) I noticed something.

When Jayne hands Book the cigars, he snatches one back at the last minute, like he couldn't really stand to be TOO generous with the gift-giving. It's subtle, but very true to character. Another of Adam's little additions, I think.

Anyone else pick that up?

Oh, I noticed that. And it's ENTIRELY Adam. In fact, the whole scene between them was Adam's idea.

He read the script and noticed that Book was smoking a cigar in the scene between he and Mal. And Adam went to Joss and asked if he could give Book the cigars, but keep one for himself and then smoke it during the funeral scene in memory of Book.

*gushes* I love me some Adam. And Jayne.

Speaking of, those icons you were talking about came from the WORST MOVIE EVER "800 Leagues Down the Amazon". Like most of Adam's movies, he's a crazed killer and dead by the end. But I got a ton of pretty caps from it.

I actually haven't even watched the deleted scenes yet... they actually slipped my mind :O!!!
But I'll get home tonight and watch them - thanks for the reminder :)

I'll keep an eye out for that little scene but the way you described it, it sounds very true to the nature of Jayne/Adam...

Jesh :)
