"...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.
