Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy is No.1 of the Kick-Ass TV Chicks

Via WHEDONesque, Sarah Michelle Gellar as Buffy is No.1 of E!Online's Top 10 Kick-Ass TV Chicks of all time. Some of my other favourites got a mention too. Lucy Lawless as Xena came in at Number 10 and Aussie Peta Wilson's La Femme Nikita came in at 7. Also noteworthy, Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman was Number 8, Farrah Fawcett came in at at 4, Heather Locklear at 3 and Diana Rigg's at Emma Peel at 2.

Emma Caulfield on her new movie Bandwagon

Via WHEDONesque, in Emma Caulfield’s Demons from Orange County Weekly Emma Caulfield talks about her new movie Bandwagon and other stuff,

look at what’s been happening with free speech in this country, at the way Howard Stern is being treated by the FCC, for instance, and it appalls me. I wanted us to make a really strong statement against this whole repressive climate.

And this from a Republican pin-up girl.

Oh and here's a synopsis of the film from OC Metro

There also are a surprising number of superb mockumentaries on this year's roster. Karri Bowman's "Bandwagon" follows a basically well-meaning but pampered and vapid Hollywood starlet (former "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" sidekick Emma Caulfield, fearlessly parodying herself) who is casting about for a new cause to endorse when she meets Tabitha (Bowman), a young, retarded waitress who has dreams of becoming an actress. Poor Emma throws all of her resources into helping Tabitha realize her dreams, doing untold damage to her own faltering career in the process. The film is a godsend for "Buffy" geeks like me (several of Caulfield's "Buffy" cohorts show up to squirm while she makes a fool of herself). But even if you don't know your vamps from your vengeance demons, "Bandwagon" will both amaze and amuse you with its bitterly hilarious satire.

Yes, I have to see this...

Buffy/Angel TV Film Possible?

Sci Fi Wire reports Buffy/Angel TV Film Possible?

The WB has approached Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel creator Joss Whedon about doing at least a movie-of-the-week or two—and possibly as many as six—next season, thanks in large part to a fan campaign organized by Saving Angel, E! Online's Watch With Kristin column reported. But the columnist added that, despite Herculean efforts by fans to save the canceled vampire show, Angel won't be coming back as a regular series, either on the frog network or on UPN or Fox, which have both passed.

BTW there are spoilers flying around about the Angel Season Finale. I'm not posting anything about them at all except to say I have been quite shocked about what I've read.

In other news via WHEDONesque, Zap2it interviews Julie Benz (Darla) and TV scribe talks girl power in which former Buffy writer/producer, Jane Espenson, now co-executive producer of the Gilmore Girls talks about how people who make mistakes are better than role models.

Buffy and Angel Links

A few links I've been collecting....

Check out the first post-cancellation Andy Hallett interview.

An interesting article, Pop goes the Saviour,

In many ways Joan takes over from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, whose show wrapped last year after seven seasons. On first glance, it is hard to think of Buffy as a "spiritual" TV show. Yet Buffy was, in many ways, a prime-time role model for teenage girls, teaching them to learn about themselves and live with who they are, values most parents won't argue with.

Also interesting, Ofsted chief praises Buffy the gender bias slayer,

More television programmes such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer would help ensure that the superior achievements of girls at school and university were mirrored later in careers, David Bell, the head of Ofsted, said yesterday.

Finally, a funny, somewhat retro trailer for Buffy and Angle DVDs, What makes a great DVD?.

Good news. Let hope she makes it on Angel...

Sarah Michelle Gellar, former star of TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer, told SCI FI Wire the reasons she reluctantly pulled out of appearing in the Buffy spinoff Angel earlier this season and left open the possibility that she might still make an appearance, if asked, before Angel winds up its fifth and final season this year on The WB. Gellar, speaking for the first time about the issue, said in an interview that she had to bow out of a planned guest appearance on Angel when her aunt died late last year. Gellar spoke to SCI FI Wire during a break in the filming of her new project, the supernatural horror film The Grudge, in Tokyo.More...
