4.0 out of 5 stars Four by Five, 9 Aug. 2005
Wow all the series of buffy one after the other for my enjoyment - hmm. It has been nearly 2 years since old buff departed from our screens for good and in large part the world seems unaffected by this departure. Buffy was and always will be one of the most innovative and original shows on television combining action with romance and perhaps slightly too often comedy.
When Buffy finished i was actually relieved, whilst i was a huge buffy fan i believed the show had overstayed its welcome and needed to end. This feeling came around Series 6 - the worst of all the series but diminished slightly with the much improved Series 7. Still in my opinion those 2 series were an addition to make some more money and thus lacked the integrity of the first 5 series.
The First 5 series are all excellent however and it is for these that you should buy this box set. These series produced some great charcters (most of them with uniquely bizzare names) and will still grab your attention even 9 years later in some cases.
So why did the series miss out on that illustrious 5th star. Well sometimes the program can be dire certain relationships are created just to stop someone from being single (it seems that in sunnydale nobody can remain single - unless you're evil) and after a while these relationships interfere with the storyline and it becomes Buffy the Psychotherapist or Buffy the over opinionated and whiney, part time slayer. These things over time begin to grate.
That being said though it is still an awesome series and at this price a real bargain and a worthwhile addition to your collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars Arrrrgh Get Over It, 9 Aug. 2005
Ok people let me break it down for you - different isn't always good. The main problem with the Da Vinci Code (and believe me i had a task slimming it down to just one) is that the entire book is based on pretentious drivel with no real intelligence from the creator to back it up. Quite simply put this book is the literary equivalent of 'The Matrix Reloaded'. Whilst some will be wowed by what the book could stand for if proven to be true you have to stop breathe and think- Dan Brown has only written a book , Dan Brown has only written a book he has not one second i need to switch to capitals to reinforce this point - HE HAS NOT RE-WRITTEN HISTORY AAARGH. So for those of you in a quandary over whether to read it or not my advice is don't and as for me, well i'm going to go and boil my brain until every last trace of The Da Vinci Code has been erased from my memory.
One last time
Dan Brown had only written a book !!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what i wanted, 1 Aug. 2005
Not trying to sound passe or anything as i'm sure that by now you're already informed on the general consensus but i will be honest to say that this CD put quite simply contains my all time favourite song - Until Then - for me it is a song that knocked Wandering Star (Portishead - also awesome) out of the park i've listened to the song and the album so many times that it has worn and certain tracks won't play. I implore all fans of music to purchase this CD quite simply it is a masterclass in emotive lyrics juxtaposing a soft industrial sound.
Ultimately at this price it is nearly the definition of value for money. As an album it may not be perfect, but, it raises the standard to which others must compete. Finally for an atmospheric, unique and altogether enjoyable auditory experience The Noise Made By People can't fail to deliver.
