How the Buffyverse could have been different: the unaired pilot

So today I stumbled across the unaired Buffy The Vampire Slayer pilot, and I can totally see why it wasn’t originally picked up.  It was so cheesy!!

It had a lot of the same dialogue, and a lot of the same cast, but still.  I didn’t really like it.  Although Buffy herself was still played by Sarah Michelle Gellar, and although her lines were very much the same, she seemed less ditzy to me.

For starters, there was no Angel.  Also, there was no Jesse, no Joyce, and no real chemistry between the people.  I guess it doesn’t help that it was only 25 minutes long instead of two 43-minute episodes that were the actual premiere, but still!!

And who was that playing Willow??  There was nothing wrong with her, really, but Alyson Hannigan did such a good job at playing the shy, awkward nerd that anyone else in that role seems off.  Giles and Xander were still the same two actors (Anthony Stewart Head and Nicholas Brendon) that we love.

There was less Buffy-trying-to-fit-in scenes, Principal Flutie was less flustered, and there was no mention of the Harvest or anything.  And Darla dies!!  I’m glad they changed that little plot point!!

Although the library was much, much nicer, and definitely looked more like a library.  There were actual books!! It seemed a little big for a high school, though.

In the end, I’m glad the show was picked up, as I love it to death.  And I’m glad they made those changes.  Can you imagine Buffy with no David Boreanaz??  It would so NOT have been the same!!

Anyways, feel free to take a look, if you haven’t see it before.  Or re-watch it, if you have!!

The best (and scariest!!) show on TV: American Horror Story

Hello my lovelies!!

I want to talk to you all about my favourite show, American Horror Story.  It is one of a very few shows I follow, and the ONLY ONE that I watch on a weekly basis (instead of waiting for the season to be done to watch it all).

It’s currently on season two, and I’m finding it just as awesome as the first one.  It’s set up to essentially be a mini-series, in that each season has different characters and nothing to do with the last plot.  It’s kind of hard to talk about without giving too much away, but I’ll do my best.

It’s me again!!

Hello all!!

I know, I know, it’s been so long since I wrote!!  But here I am, hoping you’re still checking out the site.  Hopefully I’ll be able to update more often.  Maybe a few times a week??  Well, I’ll try!!

I don’t really have any reason for why I haven’t updated, but I’m sorry I haven’t.  Real life, you know??  But don’t worry, I’ll do my best to keep the writing a little more regular.

So what’s new, you want to know??  Well, not too much.  Taking some classes, trying to find a writing job, living life.  Computer died (or rather, I killed it) and now I’m working on a Photoshop-free Mac.  Yeah, it’s interesting.

I do have a few posts I plan to do, on things I’ve been watching or places I’ve been to lately (American Horror Story – watch it!!).

But I didn’t want to write and not leave you something to listen to, so I figured I’d leave you the three songs I’m currently obsessed with.

First, Fun.‘s “Some Nights”.  I know, it’s not new, and I’m a little behind.  But I love it!!

Another obsession is Ke$ha‘s newest, “Die Young.”  I’m iffy on Ke$ha.  I love some, I hate some, and I honestly believe if the beat wasn’t catchy, the song would be worthless. Her talk-singing can get annoying at times.  But this one is just too catchy!!  Although I’m iffy on her claims about sex with a ghost.  I mean…really??

And lastly, a song off No Doubt‘s latest album ‘Settle Down,’ called “Looking Hot.”  I’m not sure if they plan to make it a single or not, but it’s so catchy and it just makes me want to dance!!

Okay, apparently it’s supposed to be a single, but the music video was pulled because apparently it was racist.  I’m sure they’ll have another one made in no time.  Sadly, I didn’t get to see the video and I’m too lazy to search for it.  But if someone knows where I can find it, please let me know!!

Anyways, I’ll be back in a bit with an update.  I do need to go on and on about my love of American Horror Story, so I’m sure you’ll see that up soon!!
