Let me tell you about Joss Whedon and how he decided on Buffy.
Joss, not Josh, was getting irritated about the opening scenes in movies when we already know the young girl walking in an alley after dark was going to be horribly murdered. Joss wanted to change all of that.
He wanted to depict a young girl as being strong and resourceful. Someone who can be a hero to other girls and women.
Unfortunately his movie was taken away from him and turned into a complete joke. Luckily, the movie did well enough to give Joss a try at his real vision.
I’m a big fan of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series because as I try to explain to people, the vampires is just a hook to view the stories of people who are faced with challenges.
I don’t think I have ever heard of a super hero before Buffy who had to figure out how to get a job, pay utility bills and fix the rusty plumbing in the basement.
I compete wtih women at the IDPA matches. I have already told them they are action heroes.
Oh that full copper repipe! If only she had said "Tibor, just do a cheap fix-up that'll last a couple of years"
