Remake of Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Love Buffy The Vampire Slayer. 

It is risky to remake a great series unless there is something really good they are going to offer. Otherwise, it is either a boring echo of the past or worse yet a poor imitation.

​BTW, ​
The original series
​ got off to a rough start.​  The first season was too low budget.  The show didn't start really getting good until season 2.  Season 3 was better.  Season 4 wasn't as strong, but the show really hit its peak in season 5, which as far as I am concerned was amazing.  

Despite the show being a bit uneven, it had many moments of brilliance.  Seasons 3 through 7 would have one episode per season that was experimental.  For example, season 4 had an episode that was mostly silent, although brilliant, and season 6 had a musical episode that was the pinnacle of the entire series.
