The Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show turns 20 this week.

As opposed to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie, which I quite ecumenically also enjoy and like. It is difficult to hate a comedy with Donald Sutherland and Rutger Hauer in it, although Joss Whedon certainly seems ready to give it the old college try.  At any rate: the Buffy show has been around now for twenty years, and we are all old.

On the plus side: this is a great deal for the TV series. Almost suspiciously so, in fact. What’s the catch, I wonder?

Movie of the Week: Kung Fu Panda.

Kung Fu Panda could have been horrible.  In fact, it could have been fairly expected to be horrible.  However, the directors decided that since they in fact liked kung fu movies, they should play it straight and make an actual kung fu movie… with pandas in it.  So they made one.   And It Did Not Suck.

Neither did Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Collector’s Set – yes, I’m aware that there’s a bad pun there – but it’s time for it to go now.

‘Movie’ of the week: Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

As in, Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Collector’s Set (40 discs). Yup, the whole blessed thing. Grab a few cases of iron rations, plenty of beer, and catch up on what my wife only half-jokingly called ‘the other woman.’

What? Hey. Art is supposed to cost.

What, again? No, of course Animal House‘s not over. Nothing is over until we say it is!

Why wait 20 years, Glenn?

When it comes to Twilight-themed tattoos, ‘lame’ will work perfectly as well as a descriptor, whether it be today or twenty years from now.

H/T: Instapundit, naturally. And note that I don’t really have anything against Twilight, per se: I neither watch nor read it and I’m apparently not part of the target demographic.  I will admit to a certain jaundiced attitude towards the assumptions, but then I watched Buffy The Vampire Slayer more or less (if you’ll pardon the semi-pun) religiously.

No Joss Whedon for Buffy Movie?

Yes, I’m late to this particular party; and yes, it was Joss Whedon’s own decision… still.  Why precisely do they expect me to go watch it, without the cast OR the director?

Hey, fun game. Which was better: Once More, With Feeling, The Body, or Hush? I mean, obviously it was Once More, With Feeling – but I suppose that I should give other people a chance to justify their choice.
