The true meaning of multimedia

I was never a fan of the T.V. show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, partially due to the fact that I never took the time to watch it. I did see the movie and enjoyed it for what it was worth, but I can't say it is one of my favorites or that if it came on late-night Greek T.V. I would watch it.

Still, I find it fascinating that Season 8 of the series is being released in comic book form. This will no doubt thrill die hard Buffistas, but it is also a gleaming tribute to the multimedia world we now live in. We have a chance to pull out all the stops as far as creativity goes, in any format, anywhere. Sure, we'll no doubt be exposed to a lot of sheer crap because of it, but that is part of life.

Beware, vampires. She that owns the multimedia market wins.

We seem to share some tastes in matters of "culture" (Gilmores, The Secret History, etc.) so let me urge you to give the Buffy TV show a chance -- should it show up on Greek TV. It was vastly superior to the movie -- especially the first 4 or so seasons. Anyway, that's my opinion. Treat it as if it's worth what you paid for it.
