Hmm. I watched Roots
the first time around, but I'm not sure if I watched the repeats. Anyway, it looks like Dr. Strange
is not on DVD.
"Why Remakes Are One Of Our Greatest Achievements As A Civilization?" A bit of hyperbole there.
Anyway, his points about folklore, while true, are not applicable to individual creativity. His use of Dracula
make my point-- Whedon did not name the gang after Harker, van Helsing and the rest, nor did he name Angel after Dracula. He created an original concept (also incorporating the idea of upending the scream queen cliche) to embody his ideas. Or do you think Buffy would have been improved by recycling Bram Stoker's character names?
