Into each generation a slayer is born...

http://po.st/jpfJ5M

I know this isn't book related, but I also know there are a lot of Buffy fans on here who might have feelings about this one. Personally, I'm excited to see how it goes.

CoffeeK8 I am super excited about this! Buffy is my Star Wars too 13mo
Jess_Read_This I‘m cautiously excited... I kind of hope this new Slayer gets her own story and they don‘t try to recreate Buffy. If that makes sense? Which it sounds like that‘s what she wants to do. So I‘m excited! (edited) 13mo
julesG @Jess_Read_This Fully agree! 13mo

Burghbookaddict Im with @Jess_Read_This .. I hope its a new story in the same world 13mo
TheKidUpstairs @Jess_Read_This @julesG @BurghBookAddict I agree, and it sounds like that is what they are creating. New slayer, new story, same world. Fingers crossed! 13mo
Jess_Read_This @julesG @BurghBookAddict @TheKidUpstairs I missed if this was going to be on a network? Do you know? (edited) 13mo
TheKidUpstairs @Jess_Read_This not yet, it's being pitched to streaming services and cable networks over the summer. 13mo
That-Bookish-Hiker @GypsyKat have you seen this? 13mo
TaylorMay That sounds like it could be a lot of fun! 13mo
GypsyKat I‘ve heard about this! I can‘t see it working without Joss though, so I really hope that if it goes through, he‘ll be involved. 13mo
FantasyChick I am completely torn by this. On one hand, you can NOT redo all the Buffy awesomeness but on the other, if done right it could be epic! 13mo
TheKidUpstairs @FantasyChick you definitely can't redo it, but that's why the announcement that it is a new slayer and new story makes me hopeful that it will be something good! 13mo

I'm in one of those foul moods in which I want to kick some ass. Give me your Buffy-style book recs, please! 😤

Whedon hitting us with some cool societal commentary as always. The preservation or loss of virginity is arbitrary to someone's worth and personality.

The chapter on the significance of names in Buffy the Vampire Slayer is my favorite so far—so many characters have nicknames and have chosen different names for themselves, and I never tied it to choosing identity. It's really eye-opening and I can't wait to watch the show again with this new outlook.

I love Buffy so much and being able to read stuff that "Buffy scholars" have written about the show really makes me want to watch it again.

Kmmsellers That's a really great book! 2y
Lylah @Kmmsellers I'm enjoying it a lot so far!! 2y
