Also I think it was Johnny who pointed out the Confederate sympathy that flits through Firefly?

not me, i just think buffy is a neat show with some clever ideas and a dedication to its characters (true of angel & firefly also)

What I never got with Firefly was how it was a just pretty enjoyable TV show instead of being the second coming of TV Jesus like everyone told me it was.



I think thats actually a Hitler painting, I've never seen it before but everything Hitler painted seems to have piss yellow as the dominant color.

it says Hitler in the file name.... and I think thats the sig...

yes?

Yeah it's a deliberate Godwin made for the sake of humour.

Nobody would grant such mediocre art significance if it wasn't for the fact that the author also committed an atrocity.

Joss Whedon is only really famous for making TV shows and films, yes?

I actually think it's closer to a martyrdom thing.

Firefly was pretty good. It wasn't as mind blowing as some people seem to think it was, but it was pretty entertaining pulpy sci-fi. It had spaceships and guns and a wisecracking pilot and a space hooker. What’s not to like?

If it had stuck around, we would have seen it go through ups and downs with better and worse episodes and seasons. A lot of this energy now directed at beatifying it would have been directed at debating which episodes were the best or which season they jumped the shark or whether or not the new season was a return to what made the show great.

But it got canceled. So now all anyone can remember is that it was a good show that was needlessly ended before its time. This was exacerbated by the general sense that there was a grand sweeping plot in the works that we would never get to see. What’s more, Fox had canceled several okay shows around that time, and people were sick of it, so Firefly became a symbol for good television being destroyed by bad stations.

EDIT: In other words, the best thing Fox ever did was cancel Firefly. They turned a pretty good show that wasn't getting good raitings into the best selling DVD box set ever (no idea if this is still true, but it was true for a little while).

Why the hair tearing?

Joss Whedon's work, which is making tv shows and films, is being discussed on the internet because he is famous for making tv shows and films.

Hitlers paintings are on the internet not because Hitler got famous because he painted lots of pictures but because he got famous by attempting to exterminate European Jewry.

The comparison is really shoddy!

So your point is that in the past someone needed to kill people for their bad art to be recognized, and now bad art is recognized without the murders?

Buffy is an okay show that benefited greatly from the time it existed in: the love of 90s faux feminist girl power and sudden exposure of snappy, unrealistic wit to American audiences propelled what is basically a serviceable and not overly idiotic show into a sort of phenomenon. That said, I think Whedon is a decent enough writer and find some of the character arcs on Angel to be fantastic and Firefly and Dr. Horrible to be generally well done.

It's the default response by Whedon fans to accusations that he only ever does niche cult-y stuff.

Of course, he was only a co-writer. He also helped write Speed.

Speaking of Keanu Reeves, has anyone else noticed that The Fast And The Furious is Point Break but with cars instead of Surf boards?

yeah, I've had people disagree with that, even after watching both of them in a row. they say they're totally different movies.

if you watch the scene in The Fast And The Furious, where Paul Walker tells the Girl he's a cop. he is absolutely doing an Impression of Keanu Reeves.

Which leads me to believe he knew it was the same story.

How people don't see it blows my mind.

Oh hey, this thread was about Buffy.

Taylor Swift as Buffy.

who likes that idea?

I don't get it. Are you guys making a purposefully silly part of a film to point out that it is silly? I DON'T GET IT. (I'm not standing up for the Buffy movie, it was several kinds of dumb and had Luke Perry, but pointing out parts that were deliberately intended to be ridiculous isn't the best way to go about it)

If this is done, it should be done with aspects of both Twilight and TrueBlood, so it will survive.

Yes, Buffy did Vampires before Vampires were cool and Buffy was NEVER cool, except for the British guy (and then he had a breakout and amazing role in the cult blockbuster REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA,a long with SpyKids girl, Sarah Brightman and Paris Hilton in the best roles of their lives and will never have better ones. Ever).

Unless you people and the rest of yuppie hipster nazi muslim commie redneck AMERICA (and all subsidiary countries that we own--- Egypt, Cuba, Texas, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Vietnam, Cambodia, Cincinnati, Madagascar, Ireland and whatever land/state/country/plane of existence Tay Diggs lives on) accept that VAMPIRES ARE FOREVER CHANGED FOR THE BETTER BY STEPHANIE MYER, you will live half-lives similar to those of Frank Castle and Jean ClaudeVanDame (after The Expendables and refusing to be in it). GET OVER THIS FACT, my collegiate level masochistic friends.

Buffy + Twilight Vampires would be an epic undertaking that would basically equate to a Marvel level Crossover.

LOOK AT THE POSSIBILITIES.

Not to mention Buffy is published by Marvel now anyway... so we're talking Blade and all sorts of useless Marvel characters no one cares about (Runaways, Thunderbolts, Iron Man) all showing up to fight Edward Cullen and that one chick with the short hipster hair who is probably one of the most important literary characters of all time (<3).

And if you don't understand what I'm saying, you must not be enlightened and most likely a communist.
