I've just been watching Branagh's Much Ado and Whedon's Much Ado back to back. I find it quite fascinating which lines get used or left out in each. Scenes start and finish in totally different places, and it really affects the tone.

Also:
- Branagh's Benedick is a very comic character, whereas Denisoff's is far darker.
- Fillion is the only person I've ever seen manage Dogberry - largely because he's playing him as a fool, but not as weird.
- The choice to turn Conrad into a woman was inspired.
- Kenneth Branagh is really good looking with a beard.
