Buffy Rebooted Without Joss Whedon

Okay, no. Just… no. The show hasn't been dead long enough for a reboot. Plus the fact that it doesn't need a reboot. Joss pretty much covered everything in the series. SMG left and the show ended simply because everyone knew that there wasn't a whole lot more they could do with the characters and the world.

I've always been a big Buffy fangirl and sometimes I do miss having the Scooby Gang on my screen. But this isn't a show you can reboot. You can't make it fresher, you can't change the mythos and you can't alter the dynamics in subtle ways the way you can with comic book films. Do you know why? Because the formula worked and despite the fact that it's no longer on our screens, it's still working. The show isn't outdated enough to start anew.

On the other hand, if Warner had announced that they were doing a film or miniseries of Fray and Joss Whedon was involved, I would totally be there. Because how cool would that be? And I don't think anyone would mind a guest appearance by Buffy in that regard. And future!Willow? Awesome!

Maybe they should make a film out of season 8. Ha. Oh, Lord. Could you imagine?
