Fox Sux Dix, Sez Vamp-Rox Fans

posted by on October 15 at 15:26 PM

Apparently, Fox has pulled the plug on the traveling Buffy the Vampire Slayer: the Musical singalong that was in town this past June. Buffy geeks everywhere are outraged that Fox would kill a cult movie experience so clearly by and for the fans.
I have to note here that, though I’m not a Buffy fan, I used to be roommates with the founder and MC of the Buffy musical, Clinton McClung. He’s a good guy, a great friend, and a talented blogger over at WFMU. If you’re a Buffy fan, or if you’re one of the thousands who helped fill the Egyptian to capacity (twice!) for the musical this past summer, please go to the Buffy: the Musical official website, where you can sign an online petition and voice your displeasure.

Fox Sure Xylophones, Do I Xylophone.

Those fuckers over at 20th Century pioneered the fandom cease & desist letters of the late 90s/early 2000s. I'm not surprised that they've put a stop to something that probably sells more of their precious DVDs.

Buffy was on Fox? Huh.

Because I am a giant geek, Kiru Banzai, I will answer your question: Buffy was produced by Fox, but the show was bought and shown by the WB, then picked up by UPN when the WB opted not to continue past the show's 5th season.

Fox still still retains all of the rights to the show, and that's why you can still watch it (and Angel) on FX every morning.
