Buffy the Vampire Slayer Stuff – She May Be Seeing Double, But She’ll Always Be Buffy To Me



As I have said  before and will say a thousand times more, Buffy The Vampire Slayer will always be the  WGTVSE.  Not only has the show made tons of Best TV Shows of All Time lists,  more has been written academically about Buffy by scholars than any other program in the history of television.  How do I know that?  Because it says so write in this article.

Sarah Michelle Gellar takes time out from filming her new show on the CW to do a promotional tour.  The show is called “Ringer” and the IMDB describes the plot this way:

Bridget is six months sober and starting to get her life back on track when she becomes the sole witness to a professional hit. She flees to New York, telling no one. In New York, Bridget reunites with her estranged twin, Siobhan. Wealthy, pampered and seemingly happily married, Siobhan lives what appears to be a fairy tale life. The identical twin sisters seem to be mending their frayed relationship, until Siobhan disappears overboard during a boat trip the two take together, and Bridget makes the split decision to take on her sister's identity. She discovers shocking secrets, not only about her sister and her marriage, but other secrets as well. Bridget soon realizes she is no safer as Siobhan than she is as herself.





The premise has definite possibilities and my hope is to be right here writing about it when the series premiers.  Here’s a clip:

Sarah Michelle Gellar stars in the new CW series Ringer.

But that’s not all.  Sarah will return to the series for which she once won an EMMY Award, that being All My Children.  But she won’t be playing Kendall Hart, the role for which she won the award since that part now belongs to someone else.  It will always be to the shame and  detriment of the Television Academy that year after year they ignored Buffy when it awards time rolled around. 

I  for one am cheering her on, hoping this all works out, and the series is as interesting as it sounds.  So what if  the movie career didn’t quite work out.  Maybe it had something to do with typecasting, or maybe choosing roles like playing Daphne in two Scooby Doo movies.  But it doesn’t matter because  when it comes to Buffy, I’m a major fan boy.   Here’s a clip of Sarah winning her Emmy.
