I think this is a big, big mistake. I’m talking Wild Wild West
Missing Willow, Xander and Buffy?
I think the biggest hurdle for some shows to get over is the name. Buffy The Vampire Slayer is a show like that. It not only had a name that would make you think “There’s no way I’m watching a show called ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer'”, but it had a “OK” movie that proceeded it. And by “OK”, I mean “rent the thing if you don’t see anything else on the shelf”.
If you can make it over the hurdle and start watching the show, you’ll have one of those slap yourself in the forehead moments when you realize what you were missing. Buffy was that kind of show for me. I became a huge fan of the show in the last season, and “power watched” all the back episodes via DVD and reruns in about six months. That’s a lot of Buffy. The show finally ended, and besides the spin-off “Angel”, there was no more Buffy…
… But not so fast… Some of the folks behind Buffy tried to start up an animated series! Check this out:
I had no idea. Not sure if it’ll ever make it to television, but we can hope.
Check out the interview too.

TVSquad is reporting that Joss Whedon has told people that his panel at ComicCon that negotiations are close to finalized for a 90 minute special – Ripper.
What the heck is Ripper? It’s the nickname of the character Giles from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series.
Yup…that’s right. We might be getting a movie (and possibly a series?) chronicling Giles’ younger and wilder days.
