Over the last couple of weeks there has been some talk about the BtVS reboot.
I am one of those who don't want to watch it ... If I love a film or a series, part of why I like it is the combination of the actors, the stories, the film sets etc
To me Sarah Michelle Gellar is Buffy ... as are all the other actors who were in the series (come on, could anyone replace James?); and Sunnydale was the view that I saw before it was lost in a huge hole.
If they do post-BtVS/Angel, then we are still missing the actors - and for me, as many, we have our own ideas as to post the series. I have never read the comics - I live in Spuffy fandom.
So, whoever is involved I doubt I will even watch the credits.
I am like it with other things, as well - some films should never be remade, other series, just too iconic. I will admit I've had to change my mind over V, as I loved the original, and am enjoying the re-make.
M*A*S*H was another thing - I loved the series, saw it first - and hated the film. Friends have done the opposite - but to me Alan Alda is Hawkeye, etc.
Speaking of which, I posted a andom Meme yesterday and I talked about Spike, Faith and Damon here Well I have just been asked by cbtreks about Hawkeye from M*A*S*H
(a) Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
Hawkeye was great at having a laugh at the toughest situation - yet would work for 24 hours without stopping.
He was willing to show his emotions - over losing a patient, saying goodbye (to Radar, Trapper, BJ) hearing his dad was ill, etc.
He liked the "cofort" of his situation - I can relate to that - so Goodbye was a hard word
(b) A reason he/she sucks.
He didn't take his girls seriously at all - I know he was in war, and the nurses came and went - but he hated sharing himself with any of them.
(c) A reason he/she is amazing.
He faced his demons - you saw over the 11 years many things he was scared of, and finally he broke at the end - yet he went back and faced them ... and won through
(d) (Up to) Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
I would love for him to find someone to love - and equal ... I think he and Marageret could have worked, as they were both to scared to open up too much.
I would like him to get back in touch with Trapper - be friends again.
I hope he doesn't lose touch with BJ, Klinger and Col Potter
I hope he gets a nice "country parctice" - near a golf course.
(e) Five people that I can't ship that character with and why.
In actual fact - I don't do Slash - and certainly not for Hawkeye ... so listing his male friends would be here ... there was only one constant female companion ... Margaret, and as I've already said - I think they would work well.
And, before I forget - "How Rude" act3scene1 .... you give me a pressie, but no way of opening the box - LOL Thank you, very much - That was a lovely start to December for me.
