A blog from the set (coming soon at least) of Joss Whedon's (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) new tv show.

Yeah, sorry to post a “coming soon” link. I just think a Joss-style “from the set” blog is pretty interesting in and of itself.

That's OK. Fact is there's not much at many blogs that HAVE existed for some time.

I can't wait to see this post:

"Sarah Michelle Gellar is such a bitch to work with. Where's my agent? I'm firing his ass. Man that grip looks hot! Why is the craft services truck ALWAYS late? Oooops! Director is here. Gotta go....."

Considering the blog is about FireFly and not Buffy, you probably won't see that post.

Well at least we've gotten this post out of the way then.

Oh, I don't know. I wouldn't be at all surprised if some kind of time demon transports Buffy out of her time and onto the ship so they can do a very special cross over episode. You have to leverage your properties to the greatest extent possible these days you know.

More of a rambling type of blog entry, I was imagining.

It's not news until Joss Whedon himself starts a weblog. Then I could read it hoping for a glimpse of what's gonna happen this fall on Angel, Buffy or Firefly, only to get bored by him complaining about the coffee on the set.

Am I the only one upset with how season six of Buffy ended? Show me some love here. I'm still upset.

Upset, Zachsmind? How can I be? Giles came back. Giles! GILES!

Thanks for this post, bryanzera.

I don't mind the barren link; I look forward to seeing it filled in from the beginning, so I'll add my thanx bryanzera.

Zach: I'm one of those unfortunates who lives in an area that can't get UPN without a behemouth antenna with blinking red lights to ward off aircraft. I only recently grokked that I could catch up on Buffy via Kazaalite and went to town catching up. (Hope their still around when "Ripper" airs.)

I thought it was a solid season. I thought it was a bit odd that the series's namesake didn't really have much of a hand in finale beyond a few fight scenes. (She doesn't hafta be the cynosure of every episode, but ya kinda figure the season's last episode should be hers). Still, I found myself watching the last five episodes back-to-back in one sitting, so it certainly held my interest. :)

They had some weak episodes in the beginning; a rocky start -- but others (like "Once More, With Feeling", the musical episode) more than made up for it.

I think Joss Whedon knows the weaknesses the series suffered from and Buffy's final speech to Dawn almost sounded like Joss talking to the audience, saying: "I know we've been through some dark and rocky stuff, but I wanna see my friends happy and I'm gonna make a few changes."

Most people assume that next season is the last. If so, he could really pull out all the stops and go out with a bang. (Then again, there's that pernicious Britney Spears rumor ... )

Maybe some of you can answer this.....but in concerns to this post...

Is this (will this be) the first blog ever used with to chronicle television production work?

If so, I gotta say from a blogger, that's pretty damn cool.

It makes me wonder what blogging will become if the entertainment industry starts using blogging as a tool.
