"Ripper is in effect! Ripper is the long-discussed story of Giles (Anthony Stewart Head) pre-Buffy. Who knows whether or not this plot will stay the same, but Head is on board as is the BBC, which is planning to film the story as one 90 minute TV movie."

Ripper is going to happen cool. How does this affect Buffy Season 8 and when that ends Season 9 (already being plotted)?

Groovy.

Probably not a lot. Different collaborators working on different projects. I guess Joss may have to do a little bit more work to keep everything running but the man does have stamina.

America loves a winner!


They'd have to show it on BBC America. They'd HAVE to!

People love a happy ending. So every episode, I will explain once again that I don't like people. And then Mal will shoot someone. Someone we like. And their puppy. - Joss

Good news indeed. Of all the possible spin off mentioned. The Ripper one was the most interesting to me. Very much hoping that the Beeb give him plenty of collaboration and minimal interference.

The project he has going with Drew Goddard sounds good also. Always liked Drew's writing.

Good to have some favourable news.

Cheers

WOW!!!

I'd love to see that short film thing with Summer. Finally! Darn! No details... Is it for TV? Straight to DVD?

I wish I'd get to see Ripper. It would be fun to see Joss doing another one from Buffyverse.

Joss didn't say. All he said was he was finishing the score and talking to a choreographer.

Ah yes, thanks for getting that info, but I've already bought the comics individually (I'm sure it'll be helpful to others though)

I'm loving it so far. What I was referring to before though was the news about who we can expect to see in Buffy, didn't want to specify for those who are afraid of spoilers. I am too usually, but this one I didn't mind. I like good news

I only hope us in America w/o cable can see it. I happen to have a dvd player that can play dvds from any region though.

I hope this is a go. I was watching a Dr. Who DVD Season Two and there was Giles sans glasses -I meant Anthony Stewart Head playing an evil alien.

I liked Fray but just don't get the same kind of enjoyment out of comics as I do from the show or from reading a book. It's just moves too fast and there's no storyline. Maybe I just haven't learned to appreciate the whole comic book experience. I wish I could. So the possibility of even small show is exciting.
