November - December 1999

Hmmm . . . so I bet everyone's been wondering where I've been, right?  Well, since it was Christmas, I was busy with family stuff and I took a little vacation from website stuff.  But I'm back now with some news.  First off, there was an article at Salon.com on December 22 that named Buffy as one of the "Twenty ways the '90s changed television."  Click here to read the portion about Buffy.  (Thanks for the info Michael!)

In this week's TV Guide (Jan. 1-7), there are also a couple of Buffy/Angel references.  There's a nice little article on Charisma Carpenter and in the Cheers and Jeers section there is a Cheer for "Hush."  Click here to read both articles.

Next up, Nick Brendon has two new movies coming up in 2000: "Piñata" and "Psycho Beach Party."  Check out the official site for "Piñata" and I will put up the link for "Psycho Beach Party" as soon as I get it.

Last of all, The Buffy Bringers have really been making progress and on December 23 there was an article in USA Today, which you can read here.  If you haven't yet joined The Buffy Bringers, please do it now!!!

There is another article in the Dec. 25-31 issue of TV Guide having to do with Buffy.  This one is an article about Emma Caulfield (Anya) and it's in the Insider section of the issue.  It's an interesting article, so click here to read it.

Buffy is #5 on TV Guide's list for the Best TV Shows of 1999.  Here's what the article said:
5. Buffy The Vampire Slayer
This cult favorite is quite possibly the funniest yet most searing series on our list. Though Buffy’s heroes greet Sunnydale’s supernatural horrors with a wicked, barbed humor, the show also looks so deeply into the adolescent heart of darkness that two episodes, including the explosive season finale, were postponed in the wake of the Columbine tragedy. Buffy spawned the year’s best spin-off in Angel, and the long-distance romance between coed slayer and relocated-to-L.A. vampire (David Boreanaz, above, with Alyson Hannigan and Sarah Michelle Gellar) can still - during crossovers - produce some of TV’s most torrid tear-jerking.

The December 24/31 issue of Entertainment Weekly (The Best of 1999) issue names Buffy and Angel (together) as the #2 show ("The Sopranos" is #1).  Go here to read what Ken Tucker had to say about them.  In the "A Second Opinion" area, Bruce Fretts named Buffy as the #7 show, so I typed that up as well.

There's an article in the December 17, 1999 issue of Entertainment Weekly (Page 64) about the future of Buffy on the WB.  It talks about the fact that the WB might not be able to afford to renew it's contract with FOX to hold the airing rights to Buffy.  This won't happen for a while, if it happens at all.  I'm just hoping the WB gets the money because I really don't want to see Buffy moved to FOX (the evil network). Click here to read the article.

In the December 3, 1999 issue of Entertainment Weekly (Page 79), there is an interesting article about "Angel" that also talks about "Buffy" a lot.  The EW website does not offer the article online, so I've typed it up and you can click here to read it.

Okay, I finally got around to typing up the article on Nick Brendon and his twin Kelly.  You can click here to read it.  There is a really cute picture of them in the magazine, which I am scouring the web for, and as soon as I find it I will post it with the article and in Nick's gallery.

In this week's People magazine, which is the Sexiest Man Alive issue (Richard Gere?  I don't think so!!), there is a section on sexy brothers, and Nick (they call him Nicky in the magazine) Brendon and his twin brother Kelly Brendon are featured.  Unfortunately, the People website sucks and there is no online version of the article, but hopefully I will get around to typing it up tonight after Angel.  Enjoy our shows tonight!!!

At Rollingstone.com right now you can watch the video for Hepburn's "I Quit" from the Buffy soundtrack if you have Real Player.  The quality isn't the greatest, but it's still cool, nonetheless.  Watch for Buffy in the video (it's just clips from the show though).  Go to this page to see the video.


As you probably saw on the main page, there is a campaign to fight Fox's shutdown of our Buffy sites called The Buffy Bringers, and it is really important that everyone takes a part in this fight because we are only going to need loads of people to get this to work.  For this campaign, we are writing letters describing why we are against Fox's actions, but this time we are not sending them to Fox, since everything that goes to Fox is ignored.  We are sending letters to various newspapers and magazines to try to get them to focus on our cause.  Even if you don't think you are a good writer, or you don't want to write you own letter, there is one on the site that you can use, you just need to sign your name to it.  So please help with this!!

Right now at the CosmoGIRL! website, there is a feature on Alyson Hannigan, who is on the cover of the magazine this month.  There is a really great gallery of pics of Aly, though the pics are kind of small, but they are cool, nonetheless.  Here's a sample of one of the pics.
