When I heard yesterday that “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” had been greenlighted for a movie adaption—again—I felt my heart start to palpitate. My first thoughts were: What will Joss Whedon have up his sleeve this time? Gosh, it will be so nice to see Sarah Michelle Gellar kick some butt again. And, most importantly, will Spike be back?
But then I started reading more, and my initial excitement turned to outrage. First off, there’s no word yet on whether Sarah Michelle will be reprising her iconic role. And, apparently, Joss will have nothing to do with this new movie at all. Keep reading »
“There’s a whole recipe for how to make a Buffy. Take one cup Sarah Connor from the first ‘Terminator’ movie; one cup Ripley [from 'Alien']; three tablespoons of the younger sister in ‘Night of the Comet’; a few sprigs of ‘A Little Princess’—the book, not the movies; and a pinch of Jimmy Stewart for pain, because nobody does better pain. Bake those up. Once it’s cool, add a little Rosalind Russell from ‘His Girl Friday.’ All of this must be in a P.J.-Soles-in-Halloween crust. That’s very important.”

My best friend once made the mistake of telling me that she had written “Buffy” fan fiction when she was younger and I mercilessly teased her for years, even though it was that nerdy center that endeared her to me in the first place. Some of you may not be familiar with the steamy underground world of fan fiction where devoted fans think up (often sexy) scenarios for their favorite characters. For fun, we’ve rounded up six fanfic excerpts and taken out the nouns so you can guess which show/book/movie they are based on. Guess all six correctly and win … dork credibility? Keep reading »
You either are or love someone who is a “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” fan. For me, it’s my best friend AJ who once wrote “Buffy” fan-fiction and will never live it down. But in saying you’re a Buffy fan, everyone agrees it means you love the TV show, not the 1992 movie. (Which I argue was amazing purely on the basis of Luke Perry.) Yesterday, it was announced that a second “Buffy” movie is in the works—magical words fans of the show have been waiting to hear since it ended six years ago. But they were chagrined to discover that “Buffy” scribe Joss Whedon is not at all involved in this new project. Instead, the remake will be the brainchild of Fran and Kaz Kuzui, who produced the original movie. Oh, and Sarah Michelle Gellar will not be starring in this new flick. Nor will their be any Angel, Willow, Xander, or Spike in this new slayer universe. [HollywoodReporter] Keep reading »
Yesterday, on “All My Children,” Reese and Bianca got married, creating a milestone in matrimony. The first lesbian wedding on daytime TV was a real Kleenex-fest! With enough tears of joy to float everyone’s boat, the whole affair was a beautiful spectacle and a timely push for equal rights, in light of the struggle to stop Prop 8. But dang girls, you just got hitched — we could have used some more hot action to go with those warm fuzzies! And the same sex lovin’ is headed from daytime to primetime — supposedly Eva Longoria and Teri Hatcher are slated to suck face on this season of “Desperate Housewives.” It’s hard to imagine that this peck on “L.A. Law” caused such a scandal back in 1991! I’ve put a thermometer in my mouth with more passion. Anyway, all these awesome story lines combined are a clear sign that the times, well they are a changin’. So now that we’re feeling the love, here are our favorite scenes of lesbian lovin’ on TV… Keep reading »
