Birthday Lurve for Buffy
Today is a very special day … because on this day back in 1997, the first episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer aired on The WB television network. Buffy the Vampire Slayer the TV series was the rebirth of the core story and character that was introduced in the 1992 feature film flop Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Creator/writer/god Joss Whedon, against all odds, managed to take his failed film and turn it into a drama about a group of teens (and a father figure librarian) who fought the forces of evil on a weekly basis for 7 seasons. The show spun-off a very successful companion series centered on Angel, Buffy‘s vampire boyfriend and pop culture history was changed forever. All of this got started on March 10, 1997 … the day that Buffy was reborn. More »
CRYYYYYYYYYYYY! :( :( :(
Well damn. Sarah Michelle Gellar gave an interview today about her upcoming new gig on Star Wars: Rebels and she was asked about the possibility of appearing in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reunion. As you will read below, SMG pretty much killed all hope of a Buffy reunion by saying she is “too old” to play the role again. I know that fans have been dying for a reunion of some sort of BtVS, especially in the wake of that horrid Joss Whedon-less movie that was almost made a few years ago. But according to Sarah, it’s never gonna happen. If she won’t return for a BtVS reunion, then it just won’t ever happen :( Read her comments below and cry along with me. More »
Busted in Boise
Just a couple of weeks ago, we learned the happy yet surprising news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon got married in Las Vegas (a week after meeting his new bride). Today, I have some not so happy news to pass along … Nicky got arrested in Idaho on misdemeanor charges of malicious injury to property and resisting arrest. Sigh. Nicky was in Boise this weekend to make an appearance at a comic book convention there and, as I understand it, he had a bad run in with a glass bowl in his hotel. The glass bowl met its end and Nicky got busted by the cops. Ugh. If news of Brendon‘s arrest isn’t sad enough, wait until you see his mugshot :( More »

The TV Guide
All month long, the Arclight movie theaters here in the LA area are screening classic horror films on the big screen and, apparently, the 1992 camp classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer fits the bill. When I found out that BtVS was being screened, I knew I had to see it with my BFF Darion. Darion and I met at a screening of the musical episode Once More With Feeling from the Buffy TV series so I thought it would be fun for the two of us to see the original movie together on the big screen.

Congratulations are in order for Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Nicholas Brendon because today we learn that he got married to Moonda Tee in Las Vegas, NV this week. Nicky and Moonda shared lots of personal wedding photos on their Facebook profiles (Nicky‘s Facebook, Moonda‘s Facebook) for our viewing pleasure. I can’t say that I’ve been keeping up with Nicholas‘s private life in recent years but I’m happy to see that he’s so happy with Moonda. I absolutely adore Nicholas as Xander Harris on BtVS and I wish him and his new wife all the happiness in the world! Let’s send all of our LURVE and congrats to the newlyweds today!!
Dear Joss Whedon, bring this to life
I’ve been meaning to post this video for a few days now but better late than never. A very talented Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan named Stephen Byrne has created an opening title sequence for a fiction TV series titled The Animated Adventures of Buffy. As you can see above, the animation is really expertly done … so much so that it really makes me wish the TV series really existed. Sigh. I’ve watched this video clip over and over for a few days now and I never get tired of watching. If only Joss Whedon could find a way to bring this animated series to life … then all of my dreams could come true. Buffy fans, watch this video and fall in love.
The Chosen One and The Key
Remember way back in February when we saw that amazing photo of Sarah Michelle Gellar posing with her former Buffy the Vampire Slayer castmates Michelle Trachtenberg (Dawn) and Seth Green (Oz)? Well, this week, SMG and Michelle reunited again in NYC and posed for a new, even cuter photo together. According to the caption on the photo, the Buffy sisters got together this week to celebrate SMG‘s daughter Charlotte Grace‘s birthday and, well, a photo had to be taken. Check it out below. More »
This is SO bad.
Wayyy back in 2007, Not Another High School Show was a pilot that never became a TV show, and you’re about to find out why. Jennifer Lawrence and Alison Brie—two actors who I now love—were once a part of a project that could have ruined them, LOL. But it doesn’t mean we can’t laugh at the awfulness of it all. Peep the video for a clip of their Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Muffy… The Vampire Slayer. Enjoy?
"here ya go"
Joss Whedon made a fan’s day when he happened to see their request on Twitter and he decided to honor that fan’s request. Twitter user @ThoughOtter asked Joss to make more Buffy the Vampire Slayer (asking politely by adding “please”) and he decided to honor her request. Joss sketched out a Buffy drawing which perfectly encapsulates everything that is amazing about BtVS and then posted it on Twitter … which you can see below. More »
"I would love to, you know?"
In an interview promoting his new SyFy series Dominion, actor Anthony Stewart Head openly talked about his desire to star in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series that centered on watcher/mentor Rupert Giles. Altho Giles was tragically killed off in the comic book version of BtVS, there is NO REASON that the character can’t live on in a series of his own on TV. Man. I know Joss Whedon is super busy these days but THIS GILES SPIN-OFF IDEA NEEDS TO COME TO FRUITION! More »
