Not waiting for lightning to strike...

I was going to wait for a copy of Alias S1 to turn up in a charity shop, but when I looked at Ebay there was a steady stream of the boxed sets being sold at around £12 including postage. So I got one on Wednesday, it turned up today which I think is pretty good. Now I suppose I'll have to start watching them sooner or later...

Buffy The Vampire Slayer:

Clueless meets Dracula in this engagingly silly yet knowing horror comedy that really deserves cult status. Kristy Swanson is cheerfully dim-witted as LA teenager Buffy, who's surprised to discover that she is actually the only person who can save the city from suave Rutger Hauer and his fellow vampires. Director Fran Rubel Kuzui rightly plays it like a comic strip and draws perfectly judged performances from an eclectic cast that also includes teen heart-throb Luke Perry, Donald Sutherland, an unrecognisable Paul Reubens (Pee-wee Herman) and an uncredited appearance from Ben Affleck. It's a fun ride but fans of the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar will be disappointed.
