Some news about Cult TV shows which might be interesting if you have the same dodgy tastes as me.
The BBC is repeating Threads on BBC4 next Wednesday (29th Oct at 22:40). This is the story of what might happen after a nuclear attack on the UK. Might look a bit dated now (it was made in 1984) but worth a look anyway.
The final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer finally starts on BBC2 next Tuesday. There will be three episodes a week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 18:45. Unfortunately there is no plan for a late night uncut repeat. This means that a number of episodes won’t make much sense as they’ll be cut to shreds for transmission at that time. Complaints to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amazon UK is selling the X-Files DVD sets cheaply. A single season is £45 (the RRP is £90). At that price it’s rude not to buy them. I thought I might be able to recoup some of the cost of this exercise buy selling off my X-Files videos on Ebay, but it seems they are currently going for about £1 each.
And finally, Survivors season one has been released on DVD. This was one of my favourite shows when it was first on in the late 70s. It tells the story of a group of people trying to rebuild society after 95% of the world population was wiped out by a plague. It’s a bit like what happened afteer the end of The Day of the Triffids. If you haven’t seen it then I strongly recommend you take a look. If it sells well then they might release the other seasons.
