I saw an advert for this on the telly and though to myself, why not? So I rented it from here, and am I glad I did! I was hooked from episode one, and had to watch them all there an then. All in all a great little miniseries, great concept, full of twists and turns and lots of action. Excellent!
I was reccomended this by a friend, so I gave it a go... I found it to be very interesting and like no series I have watched before. It is a tad drawn out overall as it basically build the foundations for season 2 to carry on from. Still, excellent viewing.
Carring on from season one (obviously) things start to get more interesting from here on in, and it all makes sticking it out with season one well worth it. I am really dissappointed that this is the last season as they decided not to make anymore due to low ratings (God knows why as it's amazing!). Especially as the end of this season it left wide open and leaves you gagging for more!

If you don't like Dr Who don't write this off completely as it's not the same. For starters you've got Captain Jack in it permenantley (any by gods he is hot - you can't deny it)... where was I?
Oh yes, it's definately a series of it's own and well worth a watch before you judge it. If you have the facility to play Blueray I reccomend you rent that over normal DVD, as it looks a lot better!
I know, it's Buffy! I'm sure we've all seen or heard of this little (and I use the term lightly) series. For those of you who haven't tried watching it yet I suggest you do. It's great for escaping from the day to day trials fo life, which (lets face it) is one of the reasons we all watch films anyway!
They only get better as they go along - you get to know the characters more, the effects get better, and the scripts get more involved.
So, give it a try before you turn your nose up at it! If I can persuade my other half to just watch the first season to see what he thinks, only to have him eventually buying seasons 2-7 because he's addicted, there's hope for you yet!
