@reads-randomly replied to your post “Dear TV universe, where is my 1930′s depression-era Buffy The Vampire…”
I don’t know where that idea came from but I’m facinated
I always read this stuff about some day remaking Buffy, and like… NOOOO WHYYY. Remaking the tv show is a bad idea. However, using BtVS to launch a franchise makes so much sense okay. It’s basically money on the ground waiting to be picked up. We have an established universe here where we can take the idea of “the chosen one” and transport it to any setting, any period era. We can cast any type of girl in any type of environment.
Most slayers only lived like 5 years max, right? That’s perfect length for a tv show. You could have one girl die, then activate the next. Honestly this universe has every bit as much potential to burn through lead actors as Doctor Who does. You can also leap forward into the future, because maybe Willow’s trick to “activate” all the slayers at once is only good for a single generation? And 40 years from now maybe we’ll be back to only one girl at a time. SCIENCE FICTION FUTURE SHOW ABOUT A VAMPIRE SLAYER.
Money on the ground, people. Money on the ground.
@seananmcguire you’d watch this, right??
