Re: Buffy TVS to be (ugh) Rebooted

I'm normally open minded about remakes. I will take to a remake, provided it is well done. I'm a fan of the original BSG, LOVED RDM's take, await Blood and Chrome, and also look forward to Singer's more "faithful" version.

Trek fan from WAY back, and LOVED JJ Abram's film.

My trouble with this (now thankfully dead) Buffy product is this. We know what on the cheap Buffy looks like. We have the first film. It was Joss' series and his wonderful toolbox of amazing supporting characters and layered storytelling that gave that franchise any real value.

Now...If I thought TPTB cared about the franchise and were going to do their best to give us a story worthy of the franchise and the fans, now and in the future, I'd excited. When I heard of the possible David Yates Doctor Who film, I was and am excited, despite the idea that it will be it's own continuity. It sounded like they still want to take what makes Who unique and craft a good story out of it, with people who care and know how to tell stories.

I got no such vibe from this "Buffy" project.

DOA, and deservedly so.
Amen all round.

Re: Buffy TVS to be (ugh) Rebooted

@Ethros it is never too early for a reboot/remake in hollywood's eyes. Whatever they think can make them money they'll attempt. I mean look at Sony for example. They decided to reboot Spider-Man while they were still trying to develop and in the casting stage for "Spider-Man 4". So yeah film execs don't really care about "separation". They care if the franchise in question can make them any kind of money or not.

Especially one thats been dead for a decade and was no longer viable or welcome on the network that aired it, or any other Joss pitched it to for the next three years.

So it was dead for 3 years while it still lasted?

How was it "not viable or welcome on the network that aired it"? You've got some inside info from UPN 8 years ago? It sure was viable with 3.6 million viewers on average in its last season (not bad at all for a 7th season of a show whose highest average rating for a season was 5.3) and 4.9 for the finale, and I know of no reason why it wouldn't have been welcomed it if had continued. The show wasn't cancelled, it ended because SMG didn't want to go on playing Buffy and because they decided to end it. There was never any attempt to continue Buffy, on UPN or any other network. There was going to be a Faith spinoff that didn't happen because Eliza Dushku decided to be in Tru Calling.

Not really, no. Joss didn't just create a Buffy show; he is Buffy.
That's weird, in the movie and series I have on DVD 'she' is a petite blonde woman.
Don't be deliberately dense.
