To disagree with your point would be the work of a fool; to agree, the work
of a moment.

We have Buffy (series 4) on BBC 2 on Thursdays, except when teh BBC decides
to show snooker or something. :-(   Angel is being repeated around midnight
on Mondays - first series only. Channel 4 showed it originally at about 5.30
in the afternoon, then cut so much "unsuitable" stuff out as to make half
the episodes incomprehensible.

Far be it from me to want to enrich the Murdoch empire, but it's almost
enough to make me want to get satellite!

I can't help but wonder how he'd have treated Jane if he hadn't been
crippled. Odd, after all, that he should twice choose a wife with no family
or protectors nearer than the Caribbean.................
