    Totally agree. I really liked the young actors that they picked for this show. They didn't distract like many young actors do.

    Love it. That just makes me want another Buffyverse show on TV right now.

    I'd love a remake. I know Whedon is unlikely to go there again and that it would be almost sacrilege to some people to do it without him, I'd still like one even if the great Joss was uninvolved.

    I don't even think a remake is necessary. The way they ended it there are multiple slayers out in the world and you could follow just one. If Joss isn't involved though? I don't know. Not unless the writers and show runners were hand picked by him and he occasionally participated. Remake? I would rather they leave it alone.

    I just don't really want to start that far into the Buffy world, between the way they ended Angel and the continuation of Buffy seasons 8, 9 and 10 in the comics. Start clean IMO.

    I gotcha. However, I don't want to see them rehash the same story all over again either. If they tried to pretend like the other show never existed it would alienate too many fans. I don't think it's a good idea but that's just me. A ton of Buffy/Angel fans to this day have never picked up a comic so it might not be a big deal. Plus a cameo by SMG as Buffy but older and still fighting the fight with a sprinkle of other characters would be damn cool IMO.

    Me either. I'd just run with the general idea and a whole new cast of sidekicks (characters). But I'd have no problem with ignoring the history. It's not like it will make it disappear. That's just me though, I'm sure others will hate the idea of starting fresh.

    What is wrong with you people? You are part of the problem. You do realize that, right? You're part of what's driving the horrific decline in the industry.

    Watched this over the break. Good show! Binged it in like 3 days. :Dold

    It's embarrassing how well I would have fit into their "group". I found myself missing my old Millennium Falcon toy!

    We're very excited for season 2.
