Do you ever think the show's title has deterred some people from checking it out?
Yes, I think that's probably true. The network always said it would be a problem and desperately wanted to change the title. I believe that anyone who isn't open to a show with this title isn't invited to the party. I made the title very specifically to say, "This is what it is." It wears itself on its sleeve. It's sophomoric, it's silly, it's comedy-horror-action; it's all there in the title. Having the metaphor to work with makes the show better, and having the silly title makes the show cooler. At least to me.
I am never going to apologize for the name of this site again.
Ok, not that I was apologizing before, but. . .
Saw the quote in one of the essays in Fighting the Forces: What's at Stake in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I've been reading off and on for a while now.
It's. . . well, it's a collection of fairly scholarly essays about a television show. I'm not sure there's any point reviewing such a thing.
I did, however, want to introduce it.
