Return of the Buffy
Anyone who is true fan of television must be a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It just seems like a given. One of the smartest, funniest, most watchable shows on television, and it all ended many years ago after a great 7 year run. Which, let's be honest, is more than most tv shows get. But what is that I see on the horizon? Is it Joss Whedon being his awesome self? YES. And he has delivered us Buffy Season 8 in the guise of a comic book, which let's him blow his creative wad without the restrictions of budget, time, special effects, and the FCC. The first issue comes out in March, and I for one cannot wait. According to MTV, the Scoobies have split all the new slayers into three squads and there are decoy Buffys running about, since people are obviously still trying to do in the original slayer. The best part? The US government has labeled these squads as terrorist cells and is trying to eradicate them. Bush vs. Buffy? Not even a contest.
