Netflix streaming has the first season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer! My daughter and I watched a few episodes this weekend. I was never really a fan when the show was new. I didn’t dislike it. I watched sometimes if I happened to catch it when it was on. We both loved the episodes we watched.
There were a couple of faces that I recognized from HBO and Showtime shows. Eric Balfour who played Gabriel Dimas (Claire’s boyfriend) on Six Feet Under played Jesse. He bit the big one in either the first or second episode.
Julie Benz played Rita on Dexter up until this last season. In Buffy, she was a very naughty vampire.
Also on the list of things watched this weekend- Rest Stop. It’s a horror movie about a girl who is trapped and harassed at a rest stop by a homicidal maniac. There were some interesting parts, but the movie wasn’t great. Somehow, the movie lacked tension. I didn’t feel that the main actress did a bad job. Maybe it was the directing or the writing that caused the problem. I don’t know. I’m not really a film expert. All I know is that I was kind of bored during most of the movie.
Completely unrelated to the subject of things we watched this weekend, I saw this really funny article on wikihow (link below) that shows you exactly how to play rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock. The game is from the show Big Bang Theory, which is probably my favorite thing on television right now, except for maybe Californication.
This oh so helpful diagram and tutorial makes me wish I had some geekier friends nearby so I could put this into practice. Unfortunately, I don’t have any awesomely geeky friends nearby. [sigh]
