    *As I’m sure many of you know James Marsters compared Buffy to Star Trek in a recent article, if you haven’t read it already, check it out!

    Whatever your job is, you hope to do something that matters and lasts. Being a “Star Trek” fan, I was on the set of “Buffy” telling the cast we could be the new “Star Trek." I was aware that in a science fiction or fantasy series, if you can create a world that is interesting to the audience, even after they’ve memorized the dialogue and they know how the plot plays out - if that’s still a world they want to come back to, they will keep coming back. As I was watching "Buffy," I noticed there’s this sparkle or interestingness. I used to say that if you can find some way to make something interesting, terrifying or funny to happen every 30 seconds, then you have a successful television series. If you can do it every 15 seconds you’ve got a hit, and if you can do it every four seconds you’ve really got something going on. And I was noticing that "Buffy" was doing it every four seconds, like clockwork. And if we become the new "Star Trek" then I claim Spock. Spock Spike, Spike Spock - either way.

    James Marsters explains why 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' is this generation's 'Star Trek'

    *Do you wake up sometimes and think “there’s not enough Julie Benz in my life?” well, no worries, go check out “That one audition” podcast to hear Ms. Benz speak of her experiences!

    Danny Strong's headshot omg, awww. He is the cutest.

    I'm kinda looking forward to The Gifted. As much as it is centred around the teenage kids, Amy will most likely be the star.

    I knooow, he's such a cutie.
    I hadn't heard about The Gifted until I saw the trailer, if it sails across the pond on some streaming service I'll definitely check it out, if only for Amy :)

    Yay the newsletter is back! Awesome! Did not know about the podcasts for Julie and Sarah, that's cool. Love Danny Strong's throwback photo! SMG just put up a pic of her and him to promote his new movie that he directed, forgot the name of it. Not really interested in The Gifted but will only give it a try because I love Amy Acker!

    Can anyone tell me where I can find the big discussion thread on the Kai Cole letter? I know I saw it last week but I can't find it now and search isn't helping. I really need to read and discuss. Thanks!
