If the Apocalypse comes, beep me

After my previous post, Lindsay suggested I could probably complete a Buffy DVD collection just by visiting our local charity shops. I went for a walk at lunchtime, and whatdyaknow? Each season at £5 a pop.

I pondered long and hard, but in the end succumbed to seasons 5, 6 and 7, thinking all 7 seasons would be a time vampire, in a way that only 66 episodes won’t be…

Anyway, I had a couple of episodes playing in the office in the early afternoon in the background, resisting the temptation to dive in head first. I did watch the last ever episode over lunch though, reminding myself how neatly it tied things up (yes, I know there was a season 8 published, but I wasn’t that taken by it).

But then late tonight I thought I’d watch a couple of episodes of season 5 only to find the DVDs in that particular boxed set were Region 1, which was kinda sucky. Happily, although Windows Media player threw a hissy, VLC played the DVD without a problem. So big thanks to VLC and Lindsay.
