Dollhouse News from Comic Con that is MAKING ME JUMP IN MY SEAT. Casting Spoiler for Dollhouse Season 2 involving Whedonverse ALUM

There's also other Whedonverse news there such as mention of the Shepherd Book comic, Dr. Horrible comics, and that DH is releasing a Cabin in the Woods comic to go with Joss's film.

BUT THE CASTING SPOILER. OMG. HAPPINESS.

Honestly, this is the first year that I haven't been jealous about Comic Con attendence and have just been happy, truly happy with the news and soundbites and videos that have been released. \o/ I love being a nerd!

Buffy Relaunch? Oh, Please No

For those that haven't heard, the Kuzuis (the couple that own the rights to 'Buffy') have expressed an interest in making another Buffy movie. That headline sounds exciting and wonderful, doesn't it? Don't get too excited, though, because of the following reasons:

    1. They're planning it as a relaunch—not a prequel or a sequel to any existing 'Buffy' story.

    2. They're doing it without Joss.


Counting Down From Seven Three Oh Eighteen Twenty-Five I'm incredibly biased in this discussion, but even without loving Joss and not wanting Buffy without Joss's vision and experience to back it—this is a bad decision. It's not just that fans will whine and gnash their teeth over their beloved canon being besmirched; it's the fact that the Buffyverse has been off the air for 5 years. Just 5 years. That's not a long time. A Star Trek reboot, for example, serves to connect the nostalgia of original viewers of the series to a new generation who can grow to love it. It's also been 30 years since the original series aired, a generation.

Into Every Generation. . . . This article covers a lot of the reactions that have been had in the past day or so about the announcement. One thing it mentions is that this could be the story of the next generation of vampire slayer (which would make one hope that they don't call it "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," though I'm sure they want to cash in on the name). I'm into that idea (though other people are not). HOWEVER, Buffy canon has done much to prevent that kind of story and I would be horrified to watch that canon be destroyed. Tales of other Slayers? I'm totally down with that. But based on the current canon, that limits the stories to pre-Buffy, post-Fray, or working within the confines of the Slayer Army.

If the Apocalypse Comes, Beep Me While I'd love for there to be another Buffy movie (or another Buffy series), I really think it's too soon and totally the wrong time. In 20 years I'd jump up and down for more Buffy—even if it was without Joss. I'd take my kids to the movie, tell them about how it affected me, and pull out my DVDs and let them fall in love with the concept, the package, the characters, and everything. But that's 20 years from now; the length of time it takes for a next generation. Until then, anyone who wants another Buffy story, I highly recommend you start reading the comics.

Joss On Dr. Horrible

  • Jun. 28th, 2008 at 11:11 AM
theemdash: (Joss)
I love this man so much. He is totally my hero.

Joss on Dr. Horrible

Here's the long and short of it:

ONE WEEK ONLY! AN INTERNET MINISERIES EVENT!

"Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog" will be streamed, LIVE (that part’s not true), FREE (sadly, that part is) right on Drhorrible.com, in mid-July. Specifically:

ACT ONE (Wheee!) will go up Tuesday July 15th.

ACT TWO (OMG!) will go up Thursday July 17th.

ACT THREE (Denouement!) will go up Saturday July 19th.

All acts will stay up until midnight Sunday July 20th. Then they will vanish into the night, like a phantom (but not THE Phantom – that’s still playing. Like, everywhere.)


Fear not, though, because Joss is awesome and after July 20th, we'll be able to download Dr. Horrible for a nominal fee, and there is a planned DVD release. Did I mention that I love Joss?

Anyway, go hear the news from the man himself. It's way more entertaining than what I just wrote.

I've seen this on a few journals (most notably with [livejournal.com profile] princessofg and [livejournal.com profile] tenaya) and I have to post it because it's exactly how I feel about fandom and why I try not to put down my friends' favorite shows (also why I will give shows repeated chances).

Your Friends Are Not Watching the Same Show You Are (And That's Okay)

[livejournal.com profile] teyana did something interesting with this and named the shows she's watching and I saw that and thought, "Yes, I have to do that." So, I'm doing that.

These Are The Shows I’m Watching

Buffy the Vampire Slayer )

Angel )

Firefly )

Stargate: SG-1 )

Stargate: Atlantis )

Saiyuki )

Fullmetal Alchemist )

What are your shows?

I hadn't mentioned it (because I am so insanely jealous), but last Friday was Mutant Enemy Strike Day at Fox Studios. [livejournal.com profile] electrcspacegrl is one lucky person from my flist who was in attendance and has been passing along the first-hand scoop on a lot of things.

Today she linked to a great video from the event that I think pretty much everyone on my flist will enjoy.



Grr. Argh.

Touch Your Knee

Joss is back in form and posting on Whedonesque. Today's post is, actually, about us! Us being the enormous internet us who are massive movers and shakers and do amazing things when we are mobilized and motivated. Apparently this is inspirational and has prompted Joss and other showrunners to mobilize in a similar way and that is just a completely awesome thing.

It's not rare for me to be proud of being a Whedonite, but today, um, I'm prouder. ;)

Take a moment to be all up in yourself. Now get over yourself. Now doubt yourself. Now hug yourself. Now touch your knee – Hah! Didn’t say “Simon says”. Like, ever. FOOLS!

If you don't support the WGA Strike (really? you don't?) there is one very good thing about it: apparently not writing has turned Joss into a blogger. Okay, so "turned Joss into a blogger" is kind of my assumption, but if I were used to being a working writer and suddenly had to stop, I'd go look for another outlet. And if I had legions of fans and a message board with my name literally on it? Yeah, I'd go post there too, where I could say pretty much anything and have people faint because they actually love me that much.

I'm going to go faint now.

And, as always, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] electrcspacegrl for keeping me up on the Joss posts.
