and according to Millar, there are talks of a movie versionSE, if you don't mind reading to scratch that itch, give a gander over at Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar. It's youthful, witty and I love Millar's characters. (and seriously, what's not to love when one character is a werewolf fanshionista)
That is so awesome. I can't stop picturing this now that you mentioned it and it's not even that I disliked SMG as Buffy although she was my least favorite amongst the Scooby gang.In a not quite related thought: I was re-watching Veronica Mars recently, and I pictured an alternate TV reality where Buffy Summers was played by Kristen Bell instead of Sarah Michelle Gellar. It was a happy place indeed.
What I want from the Buffyverse: a group of low level warlocks, demons, tricksters and half breeds who work the magical underground, steal rare artifacts or secrets, find lost people or work spells for payment. Basically, they're cyberpunk shadowrunners trying to make a buck and survive, and all of them have a past.I miss it to. In fact, I miss Whedon on TV in general. Hard to believe that back in 2002 we briefly had three Whedon shows on at the same time! Since 2004 all we've had of his on TV was Dollhouse, a show that was both hugely ambitious and deeply flawed.
I don't want Whedon making big-screen comic book movies (even though I'm happy for him). I want the buffyverse back on TV!
(Yes, I'm fully aware that you can't go home again. But I'd kill for a Ripper TV series, or something else set in that universe.)
It really isn't, and it saddens me to hear someone who misses Buffy misrepresenting it in such a ridiculous fashion. Did you ever even watch it? What about Twilight? If you didn't watch both, you can hardly make that claim, can you?It won't happen as long as we have TRUE BLOOD, it's TWILIGHT with porn.
Really? I think he does a pretty good job of selling the total cockish-ness of Uther, so much so that he's totally fun to watch even as you're thinking "What a cock!".I think one of the main reasons I can't stand Merlin, is ASH's portrayal of Uther. He's just such an ass. I guess that may be a testament to his acting chops.
But I miss Giles.

But they're a family. They work together against the odds, and since Joss is writing it, the character dynamics are awesome.
