Alyson Hannigan Expreses Her Opinion Of The Buffy Reboot
"Yeah, and that's a very big mistake in my opinion. I mean if Joss isn't involved, it's only the title. Joss is the only reason that we would go back. I mean, it's just ridiculous to think of that TV show without Joss. That's just silly to me… And all the fans know that, too, so I don't know what they're thinking."
Typically, I always thought a reboot was to help a show, movie to allow fans to forget about what came before it. They did that with the Hulk movie, they are doing it with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, and they are currently working on a reboot for the latest Superman film. But what gets me is that Buffy did so well on its own, why is a reboot needed?
It’s like Fox is stomping on the foot, hand, face, and genitalia of Creator Joss Weadon, as if they were saying, “You know all those shows you did of Buffy? You know, the incredibly successful show that fans all loved? Well, we think we can make even better! So we are going to redo everything you’ve done. Oh! And we won’t need your assistance either. Bye!”
