I was weak. :)  

Amazon.co.uk delivered unto me an Email of Temptation this morning, and I was weak: they had the full Buffy collection on sale for pretty cheap. Not the cheapest I’ve ever seen it, but the cheapest I’ve ever seen it on this side of the pond, at least, and I succumbed. And then I had to keep looking to see what else was available. Angel was, too, but for more than Buffy (which seemed wrong), though as I said to Ted, “If I got them both, I could watch them in the order they’d been aired…”

Ted laughed and said, “You, my love, are a geek.” Really, I thought that shouldn’t come as a surprise to him. :) But instead of Angel we got the complete Farscape, and I couldn’t quite bring myself to order a third series after that. Maybe in May, after I get paid again. :)

I don’t feel particularly like writing today, so I think I’m going to work on my AAs instead. I feel I can get quite a lot done this afternoon. And later I’m going to make some more Chance icons, because issue two is FINALLY coming out on the fourth, and issue 3 will be out on the 11th! Yay!

I’ve been doing this book’s “essential” Pilates exercises for what, a week now? Since we got back from Dublin, so yeah, about 6 or 7 iterations of the exercises. And I can tell that it must be time to start doing the beginners exercises (of which there are about twenty, instead of the 10 or so essentials), because after a week I’m already getting bored with the essentials. So I guess on Monday I’ll step up a notch. :)

Considering that you basically have to kill a man to get Farscape over here, you chose wisely.

Excellent! I'm glad to know that! :) (in fact, before buying it I went and looked at amazon.com to see if they had a better deal and couldn't find the complete Farscape at all, so I decided, well. This was therefore the better deal!)

*beams* Hooray! I'm glad she got them for you! Hee hee hee!

*sigh* Now look what you made me do! I ordered the Complete Buffy... :)

*laughs* I am a bad bad person!

But it's such a BRILLIANT price. Even though I can't afford it, I'll regret it when it goes up... *tries to justify her actions*

Look at it this way: there are, what, 140ish episodes at 42 minutes each? that's a hundred hours of entertainment! That's not even two pounds an hour for fun! And if you watch all the extras, you're paying like fifty cents an hour for all that enjoyment!

I will save this, because this is the only time in my life anyone will ever call me a mathematical genius. :)

I've been pondering a Buffy or Angel marathon myself. I haven't watched either from the beginning in forever (if ever actually). Usually I just jones for a story arc and pop that section of DVDs in. Buffy, Angel, and Farscape are the only series I have all of. Shame I didn't wait for boxed sets though. I spent too much $$$.
kitmizkit on February 28th, 2009 05:24 pm (UTC)
There are at least two or three season one Buffy episodes I've never seen, and possibly a handful from seasons 2-4 (I started watching in season 5, so I know I've seen everything from there on out). I've seen a total of about 25 minutes of Angel season one. So I'd kinda like to get that sometime too, but probably I won't work my way through three seasons of Buffy before I can afford to get Angel, so it'll prolly all work out. :)

I don't think there's any way to own Farscape, particularly, *without* spending too much money.

First season Angel is all worth it for the episode where Spike and Oz come to town. I don't remember the name, but it was awesome.

Rewatching Buffy was a treat. We mostly skipped the first season since it just.... ehn. You can tell it was a first pilot season, especially compared to what comes after. The rest of it is awesome, though. The commentary is fantastical as well.

I got suckered in the same way.

Ugh. Almost hotel derby time for San Diego.
