Bill Stiteler and Jeremy Stomberg pondered what it would be like if Mad Men’s Sterling Cooper were in charge of coming up with ideas for films and television shows instead of advertisements. The results are all too close to home.
I thought I’d seen everything. Then some Buffy fans went and rewatched the series so they could write a limerick describing each one. This is what’s been missing from my life. Take a look at a few of our favorites and keep up to date on their tumblr, Waffle Meringue Productions.
My heart is practically jumping out of my chest looking at this. Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-stars Alyson Hannigan and Seth Green, the ever-adorable Willow/Oz on the show, will share screen time once more on CBS’s How I Met Your Mother. Today, we’ve got picture proof. Green posted the top pic here saying he was spending the day with his “favorite costar,” while Hannigan tweeted, “I’m in the makeup chair again and next to me is @SethGreen !!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!! Reunited and it feels so good!!!!” Her shot after the jump!
You know how it goes: ”Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number. She is the Slayer.” Operative words there being “girl” and “she,” so what’s the story with Dark Horse Comics’ new gay male slayer? Hit the jump to find out!
This is the true story of Buffy, Michonne, Lisbeth, Bella, Katniss, and Hermione…picked to live in a house and find out what happens when BAMF Girls collide. I don’t think we could have asked for anything more. Comediva, you’ve done it again. Warning: One, very small Walking Dead spoiler from Michonne in the vid.
To simply say that The Power of Three is a popular trope would be to vastly understate its importance in creative works. The Trio pops up all over film, television, literature, and assorted other mediums. The concept of three plays with and unseats our natural preference for the more stolid (or boring!) number two and creates something more unstable, and with inherently more possibilities. You won’t be surprised to see a lot of our picks have got some… issues to work out.
There are many things in TV news that have the ability to fill us with joy. Few of them are as effective, however, as when you promise to reunite some Buffy alums. (We’ve been trying to rally the fandom to get Sarah Michele Gellar a guest starring role on Bones for years.)
News broke yesterday on just such a pairing. No, not SMG–she has her own show on The CW to worry about now. Instead, Charisma Carpenter and James Marsters–Cordelia and Spike, from Buffy and Angel, for those of you who read this site and somehow don’t know–are slated to appear in an episode of Supernatural, playing an unhappily married couple.
Joss Whedon, being King of the Fanpeople, inspires many a passionate opinion. Now, a female fan who on Youtube goes by “Sexy Nerd Girl,” has composed a rap about the wonders and joys of Joss Whedon and his creations to put said passion to work. She very quickly starts singing about her desire to get down and dirty with The Whedon to reinvent the meaning of “fangasm,” which makes things a bit uncomfortable for a minute. But c’mon, let’s be real. You know you’ve thought about it, too. And in the end she decides not to sleep with him, not because he’s married with kids, but because she wouldn’t want to risk their encounter backfiring and affecting the brilliance of his work.
She covers most of the prerequisite basis for entry into the Whedonverse–Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse, Toy Story, and even that song he wrote for The Lion King. If only she’d mentioned his work on Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
TV writer Jane Espenson, who has written for Buffy, Firefly, Angel, Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse, and, most recently, Doctor Who spinoff Torchwood, has revealed via her Twitter account that a new web series spinoff of Torchwood will star perennial Joss Whedon favorite Eliza Dushku. The not-so-cryptic message?
We have faith in Torchwood: Web of Lies. … It’s tru; there’s an echo of my past work in #Torchwood: Web of Lies.
Get it? Faith from Buffy? Tru Calling (or even True Lies)? Echo from Dollhouse? All of them directly connected to Ms. Dushku? It’s not the most subtle hint, but way more fun than your typical announcement. Now, about this web series …
