Um, YES PLEASE!
If there’s one universal constant around here, it’s that we love Joss Whedon, which means we LOVE BUFFY!
And if there’s a chance for a Buffy spinoff with him involved — well, color us weak at the knees! Ha!
It’s true: that Anthony Stewart Head spinoff called Ripper that was going to be about Giles is STILL on the table for Joss Whedon!
Here’s what Whedon said:
The thing about Ripper ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ the essence of it ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ is that the BBC came to me at one point like, ├óΓé¼┼ôIt doesn├óΓé¼Γäót have to be Ripper. It can just be [Anthony Stewart Head], and there├óΓé¼Γäós magic, and he├óΓé¼Γäós Tony, cuz he├óΓé¼Γäós awesome. For some reason, he keeps getting sexier every year. And that story was always about a mature guy who├óΓé¼Γäós lived, and about the choices he├óΓé¼Γäós made. So you could make that now, or you could make it 10 years from now. And I├óΓé¼Γäóve tortured Tony more than any other living human with, ├óΓé¼┼ôWe├óΓé¼Γäóre definitely gonna do this!├óΓé¼┬¥ Because I thought we were. He├óΓé¼Γäós working so much, though, I├óΓé¼Γäód feel too guilty. But that├óΓé¼Γäós the thing with Ripper: It doesn├óΓé¼Γäót go away in my head because he├óΓé¼Γäós still right for it, and he could still bring it.
We don’t care when it happens, as long as it happens!
Okay, so we do care — WE WANT THIS NOW!!
Wouldn’t this be awesome??
