Buffy De-Whedoned

In what can only be described as a travesty in the making, the rumored Whedon-less remake of Buffy the Vampire Slayer is apparently going forward. If you listen closely, you can hear the sound of fanboys, male and female, around the world making whatever sound is the opposite of "Squee!"

  1. The sound is "Aiee!" (I think I'm spelling that right), which is the sound Gimli made in LoTR (books) when he first realizes he's facing a Balrog. A Whedonless Buffy and a Balrog are both dark abominations, so it seems appropritate.

    (Incidentally, that's one of my favorite moments in the book, because you have a relentlessly fearless and unshakable character who literally lets out a squeal of fear; it really reinforces that a Balrog is just unimaginably terrifying.)
