Opinion re: the other thread


I don't think Joss' writing had ever been as strong or creative as it was on Buffy.

It really saddens me that he's a gigantic goddamn asshole given the central feminist themes, but overall I will always love the series for the inspiration it gave me in the time it was made.

That being said, I don't feel pressed to support his work outside Buffy and Angel. I liked the first Avengers when it came out, but no longer care about super hero franchise movies. The Firefly grieving really needs to die at this point. Cabin in the Woods loses most of its punch on a second view. Dr Horrible is okay, but even when I first watched it I felt like it was such an obvious outlet for Joss' super gross nice guy syndrome. Ick....

Boy though, do I LOVE Buffy. As much as I hate reboots, I would gladly welcome a modernized retelling of Buffy headed by someone who isn't Joss... Or any dude for that matter. I feel like of there was ever an appropriate time for it, it's now.

While I'm pretty sketchy on the idea of Buffy not involving Joss, I don't want the Kuzui's anywhere near it. They were notorious among all staff for being complete assholes, didn't go near the show - and unfortunately, they own the rights to Buffy.

I'm actually reading a book right now that's kind of a mish-mash of quotes from various writers and actors from the Buffyverse and there are a few that mention the Kuzui's. Fran Kuzui herself has a quote in the book, and it's really bizarre because it's this paragraph where she's like "I saw what Joss had and I really wanted Buffy to be this and I think we achieved that" etc and it's incredibly out of place because it's surrounded by quotes from every other person that says "the Kuzui's had zero involvement with anything other than meddling with the movie script."

There's even a bit where one of the showrunners tells the story of how it was the done thing then to call executive producers to let them know they were about to start filming another episode, and they used to call the Kuzui's as a joke because when they said "we're starting" the Kuzui's used to respond with "who is this?"

crazy

EDIT: Never mind apparently the Kuzui's sold their interest to Warner. Very interesting.

I know what you mean about rebooting without Joss being weird. So much of the character from the show comes from his own way of writing dialogue and banter, and I wouldn't like to see a new series that doesn't hit the nose on that I just don't know if he's really the best person to revisit this story anymore...

I think if they did do a Buffy reboot, it would be cool to see something that wasn't just a rehash of the their time at Sunnyvale high (though it would make the most sense to start there). I'd really like if they incorporated The Fray comic into it, but that'd be pretty unlikely.

I just realized that modern Buffy would have an iPhone and an instagram account and I suddenly feel really weird.

Joss Whedon's coming back to write the Buffy comic.

Thought I'd put this here until further news, first pics and shit come out, but this is exciting nonetheless.

Joss Whedon is working with HBO on a new show The Never which:

will focus on a "gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and on a mission that might change the world."
