"You don't volunteer for slugfests with vampires. It shortens your life expectancy."

I have just read, on Wikipedia of all places, that they (yes, They) have optioned Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter books and are considering making a television mini-series out of them.

BLASPHAMY!!!

I adore this series. Anita is a no-nonsense, ass-kicking woman whom I would either really like or really hate if she were real. She has the same wonderful Catholic guilt complex that all of us recovering Catholics have. She's funny, occasionally self-deluding, and has a code of honor that she will stick to no matter what, even though it might not be exactally what people think it should be. I cannot see any actress actually being able to pull off this part. There is not a single known actor or actress that I can imagine playing any of the three main characters, and not only that but the budget of the film/series would have to be astronomical to be ablet to support the bevy of zombies, vampires, wereanimals, and magic that the series requires. There is a reason most sci-fi and the like works better in books.

I don't want to see them turn this wonderful series, that I love, into really crap films (like, sad as I am to say, the Harry Potter films. The only way you can be happy with them is that you haven't read the books, and also don't know what a good film is when you see one). Hopefully, that won't happen.

Have no fear. There is an incredibly large percentage of things on Wikipedia that are not factual. Keep hope alive!
