Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Buffy the Vamipre Slayer is probably one of the greatest shows of all time. Abs, cheekbones, and teen melodrama aside, this show broke ground and pretty much put The CW (which was UPN back then) on the map. As a fan, however, I was mad at how it ended.  Sure, the Scooby Gang saved the universe, but all those extra slayers and unresolved future plans really got in the way of the closure I needed with Buffy & Co.  There wasn’t much in the way of tying up loose ends or happily ever afters. It was all very much up in the air, so it seems natural for another installment.

A reboot should feature all the original characters, including Oz, Angel, and Riley, (but, sadly, not Anya [RIP]). The possibilities are endless for a reimagining; a new Hellmouth; a slay-off with all the new faces; Buffy and Spike, true-loving it out in suburbia; a slayer school; or maybe even some other-dimension adventures.

Truthfully, I could watch Buffy and the gang try to climb out of a paper sack and read the phone book and be completely entertained. Even though we got seven seasons and 144 episodes, we didn’t get enough. Give us more.
