In the interests of accuracy, I have to correct this mistake that you keep making: Kuzuis, not "Kazulis."
Good luck with that.

I have abandoned my crusade of trying to correct "could of", "should of" and "would of". It's "could HAVE", "should HAVE" and "would HAVE."

Not to mention the rage-inducing "could care less".

(Re: PsychoPere) I figured if anybody hadn't already seen it with their own eyes they'd never believe it. Really, it throws the whole "integrity of Joss' creation" out the window, doesn't it. And the dude wrote it himself.

Hah, all fair points, indeed.

As someone who is slowly working his way through the collected editions, I certainly would've appreciated some warning before running right into spoilers unrelated to the thread topic.

That's putting it mildly, though the spoilers did seem full of fail.

I'm trying to (somewhat) temper my hot-headed ways.

(Though, yes, I have to agree with the "full of fail" sentiment as well.)

EDIT: After reading DevilEyes's post below, I'd rescind the above statement in parantheses. Out of context, some of those spoilers do sound... odd, but DE brings up a good point that most of Buffy and Angel, when summarized in a similar manner, could sound way out-there. It's all in the execution.

Re: Buffy TVS to be (ugh) Rebooted

The plot of S8 is over-the-top and insane. (Apart from
How is that crazy? People dying is unrealistic? Main characters dying is unrealistic? )

And you didn't even mention Dawn's arc...

But then again... Let's see... If someone had told you that the town's mayor turns into a giant snake but the entire school fights him, or that Buffy in S5 suddenly has a 14-year old sister who is actually a mystical ball of energy called 'The Key' turned into a human by some monks, who changed everyone's memories, and all that in order to fight a valley girl-like Hell god who sucks people's brains and shares body with a nice young doctor, while a bunch of medieval knights are after her... Errr...

Not that S8 is anywhere as good as S3 or S5. Hell no. And the craziness of the plot has gone up, especially in the last 1/3 of the season. But it's not like it's all that different from the show in that respect.

Fortunately, S8 finale and S9 are supposed to be much more character-based and 'back to the basics' approach... And I'm really glad at this point that

Oh, heck, I merely corrected someone who spelled Kari Byron's name wrong ("Kerrie") on a hobby board, and got into a huge fight over it.

Re: Buffy TVS to be (ugh) Rebooted

All the seasons of BVTS were just fine.

There's a rumor that they're talking about casting some Glee kid as Buffy. Not that it makes a difference.

Re: Buffy TVS to be (ugh) Rebooted

Looks like the project has stalled. I thought as much since we didn't hear any kind of updates for months on this.

I have to imagine all the bad word of mouth was a big factor in this (along with the crappy script, of course).

Yeah, it didn't seem to be a thing that anybody wanted to see.

Re: Buffy TVS to be (ugh) Rebooted

Really, I think the people it (supposedly) sucks for are you guys.

A new Buffy movie!

Rebooted!

And possibly something that could become successful and thereby induce the studio to make another Buffy movie!

Times sure are tough for you Buffy fans.
