The Whedonverse connection to the show is none other than Felicia Day. She’ll play Kinga Forrester, who wants to be just as evil as her dad and grandmother. She wants to continue the tradition of driving some guy nuts by showing him terrible movies, and make it profitable somehow. Felicia’s come a long way from being a Potential on Buffy, the gal behind The Guild, and part of Dollhouse, Eureka and Supernatural.
Her henchman is TV’s Son of TV’s Frank, played by Patton Oswalt. He appeared in two episodes of Dollhouse and also wrote a special Serenity one-shot ,”Float Out,” for Dark Horse.
Now the show is known for unearthing really bad movies, even some that TV stations used to show late at night until cable took over and paid programming was invented. However, what if, in an unusual series of events, Jonah, Servo and Crow riffed a certain movie from 1992 about a cheerleader who’s told she was born to fight vampires?
Not only that, someone who DOES fight vampires shows up to give her blunt opinion about it?
I wrote some fan fiction that has Buffy mock the 1992 version of her, with help from Xander and Willow. Jonah and the bots eventually get their shot, and I even have Joss make a cameo by delivering a Trump joke.
The project is also too long for this website, so here’s a link to the MST episode that will never happen.
Here’s a few samples of how Buffy and her Scooby Gang would riff on this movie:
Buffy: or about 25 years ago
(Xander and Willow look at her)
(whispers) Well, we know, but we’re not supposed to, remember?
Others: Oh yeah, ahem (starts whistling like Crow and Servo do)
Xander: Not so loud. You might scare it off.
Movie Buffy: What, that big old hairy mole? Ew, I had it removed
(realizes what she just said) AAAHHH! Thanks a lot, movie
Jonah: That proves nothing. She could be the chosen one for the LA Kings.
Crow: Well, who wouldn’t want to be Mrs. Robot?
Joss: That might be way ahead of its time.
(Joss and Frank look at her) I could’ve given a more obvious response.
Jonah: Was it?
Again, here’s the link to the MST3K/Buffy crossover. It may never happen, not even in the Framework world, but wouldn’t it be cool if it did?
