It’s interesting reading about the widely-bootlegged unaired Buffy pilot episode. And it’s especially interesting reading Joss Whedon’s remarks on a possible DVD release: “Not while there is strength in these bones.”
Meanwhile, you’ve got GNP desperately trying to clear the release of the two unaired Dwarf US pilots, and when they don’t manage that, they do the next best thing – produce a documentary on it instead. And remember, these aren’t pilots Doug thinks are the BEST THING EVER. Not that I’m saying WE DESERVE TEH PILOTS IT’S NOT FAIRRRRRRR – it’s obviously Joss Whedon’s right not to have it released. I’m just saying that I can’t really understand his attitude; Buffy was hugely successful all over the world, so you think he’d feel confident enough to be fine about something like this being released. And he’s obviously well aware of the historical importance of it to fans.
It all makes for rather a contrast with GNP.
