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.

  1. “Fuck me gently with a chainsaw, Veronica.” Good times. May have to dust off my copy and sign a petition to get Big Fun to come play North Alabama.

    BTW, terrible idea to TV this thing. Maybe on fx where they can curse and be irreverent, but on Fox, bleah. Not a good idea.

  2. I almost had “Fuck me gently…” as the post title, but had a bout of conscience on such things showing up in folks’ RSS feeds.
