Sarah Michelle Geller comments on storylines in her new tv series, Ringer:

Interviewer: This seems to be the season of the doppelganger. We are seeing it on Fringe and Vampire Diaries. I know you are not playing a doppelganger, but playing twins, are you concerned the audience may have some fatigue with that story?

Sarah Michelle Geller: Let’s be honest. People credit Buffy as bringing vampires back, but there were vampires long before Buffy and there are going to be vampires long after. All stories can be traced back to the Bible. There are like five stories: Romeo & Juliet, Cain & Abel, David & Goliath … If you tell stories well and they are different … I hope not.
