"Fray" was terrific.

And I wish this would come out by Friday to make an excellent birthday gift for my best friend in the world.

I love his writing. I think he's probably one of THE top character writers in Hollywood, but I wish some stories would just end.
ANGEL had one of the best endings a TV show has ever had, yet 2 months later, a comic came out.
Just write Wonder Woman and forget everything else.

I'll end with a quote that belongs on FARK.

Hoban 'Wash' Washburn: Can I make a suggestion that doesn't involve violence, or is this the wrong crowd for that?

Am I the only one getting sick of Joss Whedon's endless re-marketing of his past?

Who cares about Buffy, what about Firefly?

Seriously, Josh, I loved Buffy, but you need to understand that it's necessary to let your work die.

I'm going to say quite possibly yes, but then, this is Fark, so I'm sure you'll find a kindred spirit.

I want more Firefly.

I am willing to kill to get it.

Especially if it has Alyson Hannigan making an appearance as Kaylee's lesbian lover.

It's hard to let it die when he left it with such an open ending. (All the "new" slayers.) I was wondering when he'd get around to dealing with that.

Alyson Hanning, Kaylee's lesbian lover...

Yea. I'll be in my bunk...for a while...

Firefly reminds me much of MASH.

I have a theory... there will be demons..
But comic demons? No something isn't right there...

I've got a theory... the fans are dreaming.. but their all stuck in side this shiatty TV nightmare...

I've got a theory he should put these out...
and make more series.. Whats this reality TV all about?

Or just more witches, from Aaron Spelling...

which is ridiculous cuz
Aaron Spelling died last month
and Charmed got lame, McGowans's hawt,
but it should dissapear!


I've got a theory...

(something about bunnies I am way to tired to continue this and it may be the worst post I have ever written but I am sleep deprived and hot and need a drink)

I love Joss Whedon...but yea, Buffy may be getting a little old. I do agree that more Firefly would definately be nice, but I am just content for him to finish Astonishing X-men.

As a Buffy fan who was in her peak Buffy-appreciating years over its seven seasons (from giggly, endearingly slightly-nerdy tween to somber, occult-loving 15 year old to sarcastic, not-too-old-for-vampires-especially-hot-blond-ones high school senior):

YESSSSSSSSSSS!
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

Yay yay yay yay yay! BUFFY LIVES! BUFFY LIVES! Will there be lesbians? Please let there be lesbians. And SPIKE. And ass-kicking and sarcasm!!

I would just like to inform the uncaring hordes of Firefly loves etc. (blah who cares) that I am listening to the Buffy soundtrack, or, one of my favourite albums of all time. And I'm going to follow it up with the Once More With Feeling soundtrack album, people.
 
2006-07-20 01:26:05 AM
Willow and Kaylee!? That wasn't my head exploding.

On a sad note...I see that they kept that lame-ass Blessed Slayer Crowbar Thingee.

*sigh* Season 7 was shait. As were seasons 5 and 6, and most of 4. Let's face it: Willow's love life the only thing that kept the show going post-Graduation.

p.s. "Serenity" was shait, as well. Totally farked up "Firefly."

WTF kind of parallel Fark have I stumbled into? Where are the people who hate hate HATE Joss Whedon with an all-consuming spittle-flecked fury, notwithstanding their encyclopedic knowledge of everything he's ever done, including what he ate for breakfast the morning they filmed "The Gift" (prod. no. 5ABB22, first aired 5/22/01)?

Or at least someone posting that animated NERDS!!!!! .gif?

Ask again in 20 years. If she's shagging some pothead under an FTL drive and saying "Shiny!", I'll have to say... no.

I liked Firefly and Buffy too, but Joss Whedon seems to be going in the direction of the characters in Galaxy Quest.
 
2006-07-20 01:49:50 AM
Buffy was a great product. Not the best show, but EXTREMELY easy to market. Essentially Gen Y's Star Trek, or Doctor Who. Joss Whedon does the "tortured artist" crap a little too much for my liking, as he knows damn well he's in it for the attention and the money, like everyone else in the business of television. The old Buffy comics were actually ok, but I think that was mostly because Whedon was NOT involved, that they let lots of different people have cracks at it. If he's actually writing for the new comic, it may just end up being as shiatty as the show eventually was.

Firefly reminds me much of MASH.

How ODD! Then how come I like firefly and Serenity enough (but not enough to watch it the first time it aired cause I don't like television) yet I hate MASH? I like Alan Alda though, he's amusing in everything except MASH. MASH was like Frasier but set in Korea or something during a war.

Brilliant musical filks, gang! Look, I love everything Joss did. Still do. I'd rather watch a re-run of Buffy or Angel or my Firefly DVDs than most shows that are on now. Great characters, writing and fun are timeless. Hell, yes... bring on the Buffster! Just don't forget the yumminess that is Spike.

Buffy went on a couple seasons too long, it got really annoying with the sarah mclaughlin music at the end of it. the bunch of slayers was stupid too. shoulda stopped after the riley season. Which I didn't hate cause it had the best line ever (the one about the monster being like a monster tony robbins.. then spike realising tony robbins looks exactly the same as the monster) .. and the end of Angel was dissapointing in that I hate it when things are left open ended like it was. Damn them for not renewing it, but you have to think they had some idea.

Also, nobody reads comicbooks anymore except the japanese who I have to give credit they're masters at cartoon porn. They invented the idea of tentacled monsters having sex with school girls.. bravo to their creativity (unless its based on some ancient japanese cultural thing) FSM would make a good perverted manga antagonist.

All those dorks in line trying to buy their Marvel "Civil War" copies must have been a dream of mine then. They sure didn't look Japanese.

I would like to join just about everyone else in this thread by not caring about Buffy and demanding instead some more Firefly goodness.

Is that the one where Spidey reveals his identity? I didn't know it was a porn comic, though now that I think about it, it does help make sense of everything.
 
2006-07-20 02:23:27 AM
I had a Buffy kick for about a year. Then it just got old. I found that everytime I would watch it, I would just want to go play CastleVania. So finally I stopped watching it and played more CastleVania.
 
2006-07-20 02:30:27 AM
Agreed on wanting less Buffy, more Firefly.

But I also want more ANGEL! They ended the series on such a goddamn cliffhanger. It's like Joss was just pissed at the world, and wanted everyone to suffer.
 
2006-07-20 03:06:56 AM

That's why biatch made Firefly and paid off the Fox execs to cancel it. Between that and the death of Carnivale, I was suicidal.
