Nicholas Brendon: That Joss-less Buffy reboot is a MISTAKE

We haven't heard much out of the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast about the big screen reboot that's proceeding without Joss Whedon—unless you want to count the pre-Gellar Buffy who's angling for a role—but now a member of the Scooby Gang has one word to describe it: mistake.

In an interview with E! Online, Brendon started off with a joke, but then got more serious:

"I hope their vampires don't glitter. ... You know, listen...I think it's a mistake, I think that it's trying to kind of—they have to reach a whole completely new fanbase. And we already have that fanbase. So it's going to really be hard to kind of do that. But you know, everyone: They remade The Flintstones. Twice, I think."

Comparing the Buffy reboot to The Flintstones? That's got to hurt.

So now that a couple of weeks have gone by since the project was announced, do you agree or disagree with Xander?
