The Vampire Slayer Slayer

[ #9960 ]

I hope there's no truth in this story from today's Guardian.

Into each generation, a slayer is born. And this time round he would appear to be Leslie Moonves, chief executive of the US television behemoth CBS, who has dismayed legions of devoted supporters of the forces of good in their battle against the bloodthirsty undead by announcing the probable demise of the cult series Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

  • 7 seasons of Buffy is about the right amount. I hope there is another spin-off, or movies, or whatever, but an 8th season would overcook the goose, I think.
  • There are rumors over here that SMG wants out of the series to go onto other projects. An 8th season of Buffy without Buffy is difficult to envision.
  • You haven't been reading your whedonesque [whedeonesque.com], have you? Ziggy is right--SMG's contract is up and she's apparently ready to pursue a movie career. They've talked about spin-offs, but personally I'd be surprised if Buffy continued in any form. Boy, who'd have thought after episode 1 of Angel that in three years it'd be the only Mutant Enemy show?!

    Personally, I can take it stopping. I mean, I wish that everything from "Buffy goes to university" through the end of "Buffy's back from the dead and she's unhapp

    • I seemed to be cured of my Buffy infection. I watched a whole lot of Buffy in a short period of time. I'd say that the show should have ended with season 5: a heroic death of the Buffster. Seasons 6 + 7 have been too melodramic for me and the sparkling dialog seems to have dulled. The show clicked for me when it was about high school, but it lost it's punch during the college years. I realize a popular aspect of the show is all about Grrl Pwrrr! but after 5 seasons, I got that message already. Grrls really
      • I thought Farscape was about the triumph of the superman over the lazy and/or decadent bourgeouis. Crichton and Scorpius are much more sympathetic if you analyze them that way.

          Ah, but who is the Superman and who is the bourgeouis? ;-)

      • The season that's underway in the US is a return to the fine Buffy form of old. I'm enjoying it much more than the last few (last year, I was wondering whether I would continue watching, the season was such a downer).

        The characters and actors are good, but the dialogue is just brilliant. Joss Whedon could write a shopping list and it'd crackle with wit.
