Leave Buffy the Vampire Slayer alone: "To resurrect her would be a cruel and ultimately selfish act..."
"...So, of course, network execs want to do it," says Aimée Lutkin, reacting to Fox TV Group chair Gary Newman calling Buffy "the most ripe show" for a reboot. "Let’s pray (Joss) Whedon never decides it’s time," Lutkin adds. "Watching Buffy was a formative experience for many, but things have changed—in particular, the perception of Whedon as a feminist hero, following a very public accusation of cheating from his wife on the set of that very show, as well as other emotional manipulations. While I personally can’t dismiss this beloved show, I still can’t imagine that a reboot with Whedon at the helm would be anything short of a total disaster. Buffy had her moment, but that moment has passed and is also still available to stream online when the mood strikes." ALSO: There are too many ways a Buffy revival could go wrong.
