I watch too much TV


I stayed up till almost 2 AM last night watching TV. I finished the third season of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. The I watched about half of a movie called Wisegirls, which had Mariah Cary in it. Wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I really only started watching it for a couple of minutes and got hooked in.

I’ve become something of a Buffy fanatic. Went through the whole season in a week. I’m going to run out of DVDs after the next season. I’ve also subscribed to the current Angel season on TIVO, and caught one of the first season episodes on another channel in reruns. I’ve also Netflix queued Angel DVD interspersed with the next season of Buffy. So I can watch them kind of like when they were aired.

A little reading on TVTome showed me season 5 of Buffy is coming out on DVD on Dec 5. Which should be about right. Also there is an announcement of a new series starting next summer on Showtime. OK a little more searching shows the announcement I saw yesterday is gone and everyone says it was a hoax.

The episode I watch from first season was I Will Remember You and was struck by a contradiction to the last episode of Angel I watched. Last week Wesley give Angel a talking to because he seems to have lost hope he will become human again. But in I Will Remember You he did become human, and chose not to stay that way. So why does he want to do it now? Part of it was Buffy. Without his vampire skills he wouldn’t be able to keep up and she might get hurt trying to save him. But doesn’t she already do that will the rest of the gang?

It’s raining and I’m tired.

    I’m a huge Buffy fan as well. I’m still distraught over the fact that it was cancelled. It was a fantastic show, but it seemed to have lost some of it’s steam after Buffy "died".

    As for Angel, I’m a new fan of the show. I started watching the reruns over the past summer and now I’m hooked.
