Hey, what’s the worst idea you’ve heard this week?
How about this one: Let’s turn Heathers into the next Buffy.
Dear young, hipster Fox television professionals who are currently shepherding this concept: I’m sure you’re very talented, but this is really a rotten idea. Heathers was and is genius, and it deserves to be undisturbed.
And has it not occurred to you folks that a primary plot-advancing device in the film was murder? Going to be tough to keep a cast, isn’t it? Or are you going to just have Veronica and J.D. get into standard sitcom hijinks and capers instead?
Heathers burned fast, hot, and out. Please don’t try to relight it.
