My 5 Unpopular Buffy The Vampire Slayer Opinions

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER the TV series premiered 18 years ago this month on the now defunct WB Network. It is hard to believe that it has been almost 20 years since this show debuted and ever harder to believe that its been 12 years since the show ended. Well with the shows anniversary in mind I decided to put together a few of my unpopular opinions about this show that I loved to pieces.

Joss Whedon Must Be A Fan of Tuff Turf…Casts James Spader In Avengers Sequel

rdjjs
James Spader has been cast as the villainous robot Ultron in the Avengers sequel which will reunite Spader with Robert Downey Jr., his co-star from one of the greatest bad movies ever: TUFF TURF ( I know they starred in LESS THAN ZERO together but that movie sucks ass and not in a good way). This is an odd bit of casting though, much odder than Ben Affleck as Batman to be honest, and I am curious as to just how Whedon plans on depicting Ultron in this movie.

muchado

Shakespeare’s classic comedy is given a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon’s film, “Much Ado About Nothing”. Shot in just 12 days (and using the original text), the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick offers a dark, sexy and occasionally absurd view of the intricate game that is love. – Rotten Tomatoes

Stopping The Signal…Why I’m Glad Firefly Was Canceled When It Was

OK, let’s get one thing out of the way up front…I am a huge Firefly fan. I was eager for it to premiere when news of a Joss Whedon space western show was first released to the public; I watched every episode religiously during its short lifespan as a TV series; I ran out and bought the DVD on the day it was released; I was first in line to see the Serenity movie. I consider it to be the best thing Joss Whedon has ever done (even better than Buffy The Vampire Slayer).
That being said, I am very happy that the show died when it did.

The Daily Nerdgasm: Brownie Coats


Have you ever imagined what the cast of Firefly would looks as a Little Rascals type show? Well wonder no more! Thanks to artist Patrick Ballesteros we get to see what Lil Mal, Lil Zoe, Lil Jayne and the rest of the crew of Serenity look like as tiny tots. Adorable is not nearly descriptive enough.

According to the fine folks over at TVLine, this is a casting breakdown of the characters that will make up the Joss Whedon-helmed S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show being spun off from the mega-successful Avengers feature film.
