Buffy is such a  90s name.  I don't think anybody uses that name anymore. 

Really the whole culture that the series was based in doesn't exist these days.  You'd have to change things up so much there's no reason even calling it the same thing other than for name recognition.

Buffy was incredibly good thanks to the constellation of writing, directing, acting and editing.  Everything about that show was good, and whole was far greater than the sum of the parts.  It's going to take something truly excellent to be at the same level.

Skin color doesn't matter only applies when a white character gets changed. Try turning blade into a white guy and see what happens.

With people complaining about colour / sex / orientation in movies it looks like they matter more than actually being talented. Cards like racism and sexist are overplayed to the point where they become effectively meaningless, just another complaint. This movie doesn't have any black actors, must be racists, this one has only white villains, must be racist too, no gay characters, well that is just homophobic and never mind wither or not it would have anything relevant to the plot or not. I hate to think of the made by committee things that would have to get made to satisfy all these tick boxes and I am pretty sure you'd end up stuck with the blandest, most boring movie / TV show in existence.

To my mind anyway to be against something a show would actively have to continually portray that whichever minority in a bad light while having either none or very few of them in a positive way. Too many people complain about things like this and all it does is lessen the attention paid to real problems out there.

I would be surprised if this show doesn't sink regardless after a season or two, but best of luck to them. I always preferred Willow to Buffy anyway.

Buffy Part II: Electric Boogaloo.

Maybe Sarah Michelle will come back to play the "watcher" for the new Slayer.

...or maybe they can go really old school and bring back the O.G., Kristy Swanson!

As an aside, the way Willow and Tara's relationship was handled was really tasteful.  Nothing overdone, just a simple kiss in the course of other things.  It was a very strong statement about the naturalness of the relationship in the context of the show and society in general.  This was way ahead of its time.

Now that I think of it, Joss Whedon helmed this, and other ridiculously good productions like Serenity, Dollhouse and the Avengers movie, so I should have Faith in the new Buffy series.
