Buffy the Vampire Slayer returns to TV

Those familiar chords, that signature font, that full moon. Yes, Buffy is coming back to TV. No, alas, not new episodes. Reruns of all seven seasons of the cult series are coming to the Viacom-owned channels MTV and Logo next year.

Talk about wanting my MTV! (Sorry, Logo, there’s no appropriate Dire Straits songs to reference here, but I like you, too). Buffy the Vampire Slayer will air daily on both channels and mark the first time since 2008 the show has been on TV anywhere. It was previously syndication on FX from 2001 to 2008.

The show will launch New Year’s Day on Logo with an 18-hour marathon from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m. EST. The starting Jan. 4 it will air weeknights at 6 and 7 p.m. and late nights at 2 and 3 a.m. It will also show at various times on the weekends. [Full disclosure: Logo owns, but trust me my excitement stems solely from my fanatical love of the show. I might or might not even own an action figure or two. I admit nothing.]

MTV will kick off their Buffy bonanza on Jan. 10 with an 8-hour marathon starting at 11 a.m. EST. Then beginning Jan. 11 it will air each morning at 11 a.m. On MTV it will be followed by reruns of Grounded for Life and Degrassi.

OK, first things first, squeee! Despite owning all 7 seasons on DVD, there is something wonderful and relaxing about being able to plop down and turn on Buffy just like any other show. And second, it’s about time. Buffy is one of those shows that should be in perpetual syndication like Seinfeld or Law & Order. Finally third, I can’t think of a better place for the series to land. Buffy fits on both MTV the music (though — who are we kidding — just young people) channel and Logo the LGBT channel. Willow and Tara still rank among my all-time favorite TV lesbian couples.

The news comes on the heels of more good news for Buffy fans. The series is casting for a series of motion-comic webisodes based on Joss Whedon’s highly successful series of “Season Eight” comics. No word on when production will start but last month they were looking for voice actors to portray Faith, Kennedy and Principal Robin Wood, as well as a bunch of new characters (including someone who sounds like actor Daniel Craig to play a character based on the James Bond star)

TrueBlood : Let's talk about Eric having sexual relations

There are alway mixed reactions to True Blood pulling far away from Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse books- some time we love it and sometimes...well, not so much.

Here is my previous post called " The Women in Eric Northman's life " What do you think about this change ?

From BuddyTV
Eric Northman, played by Alexander Skarsgard, will be engaging in a sexual relationship with a new dancer at Fangtasia, according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. His new squeeze is reportedly named Yvetta and will be portrayed by actress-model Natasha Alam.

Alam, who has been cast on True Blood in a potentially recurring capacity, is perhaps best known for her role on The Bold and the Beautiful as Ava. She will also be appearing in an upcoming episode of Drop Dead Gorgeous and in the movie 39.

True Blood Season 3: Who are all these new people?

Movieline really helps get all the new casting straight

True Blood already has a ridiculously sprawling cast filled with vampires, shapeshifters, were-vampires, shape-wolves, and drunken hayseeds (the most dangerous of all!), but it seems like every day brings with it a new casting notice for Season 3. Who are all these new people? Who will they be playing? And most importantly, how naked will Alan Ball make them get? Here’s Movieline’s handy-dandy guide to help you make sense of it all:
