A Midsummer Night's Ramble
A Midsummer Night's Ramble
Yup. You've managed to reach the news area of chosentwo.com. Here you can see some of the interesting
tidbits of news regarding Buffy and Angel, brought to you by Anna,
Kristina, and Little Willow.
The current issue of TV Guide (May 4 - May 10) features a list of what TV Guide considers the 50 greatest shows of all time. BtVS is #41 on the list. Here's what they had to say about the show:
A monster show among TV's greatest? Here's why: Stylish, scary, sexy and smart, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (has any series ever been less well served by its title?) is a genre-busting original, defying and impressing skeptics with cleverly crafted allegories of good and evil. Creator Joss Whedon uses the supernatural to probe teenage angst, family issues and just about anything else that crosses his mind. His offbeat thriller has embraced styles as eclectic as silent film and movie musicals, stretching far beyond the show's source (Whedon's forgettable 1992 film of the same name). Whedon "wasn't just setting out to make a teen show," says Alyson Hannigan, who plays resident witch Willow. "He wanted to make a great show. It had teens in it, and it was about high school, but it's about so much more." We're believers.

Hey everyone! Great article about Charisma Carpenter up at Zap2it.com. Even makes a (brief) reference to King Lear. You can read it here. There are some very, very minor spoilers in it, but nothing serious.

Finally got around to converting this news page for usage with Blogger, so that means Kristina will now be posting news with me, and possibly some other folks in the future. But for now, just a couple tidbits of news.
Couple new articles from TV Guide. The first is in the current issue of the magazine and is a nice little review/commentary on the progress of Angel this season and this week's episode. The second is a cute interview with Charisma Carpenter.
The Chicago Tribune recently had a wonderful article about Angel's third season with comments from David Greenwalt. That one is over here and has some fairly minor spoilers.
Sarah Michelle Gellar is gracing the cover of the May 2002 issue of Movieline magazine. Pictures will be coming later.
Lastly, David Boreanaz will be on Live with Regis and Kelly this Friday, April 19th. Check tvguide.com for local air times.
