This is a public service announcement

You may have heard this already, but just in case you haven't:

if, like me, you're unlucky enough to have bagged yourself a S7 first box set with the wrong bloody episode (Potential instead of Showtime) at the end of it, you have two options open to you. The following information comes straight from the BBC website, http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/news/buffy/2003/07/17/5782.shtml

"A small batch of the Buffy 7.1 box set were mistakenly sent out with the episode Potential (which will be on set 7.2) rather than the correct episode, Showtime.

But fear not, we've been in contact with Fox who have come up with a solution.

If you're one of the unlucky ones, you should send the tape that has the wrong episode on only, with your name and address, to the Fox Freepost address:

Buffy 7.1 - VHS
TCFHE
FREEPOST
37LON20304
London
W1E 3HG

On receipt into the Fox office, these will be collated every couple of days and sent onto the manufacturers, who will re-send the correct tape to the customer.

The missing episode Showtime will be also added as an extra episode on Buffy Season 7.2 VHS box set that will be released on 8th September, so you could just wait until then."

-- I doubt Freepost will mean anything to the good but dim-witted people at my local post office, but I doubt I can wait until Sept before I can get my hands on Showtime...or maybe I can. I just found out they'll resume airing BtVS S7 in Holland on Aug 3rd.

You know, Gamiila ... that mixed-up tape you have may become a collectors item and could be worth quite a bit someday ;-)

There is that, of course...Actually, and this may sound stupid, but now that have this tape, even if it's not as it should be, I am loathe to let go of it.

It was a bit confusing at first, to watch the "Previously, on Buffy the Vampire Slayer"-bit and go 'what?! who are these people?', but in the end, it wasn't as if none of it made sense anymore.

But I'd better see about getting a tape with the eps in the proper order - I've promised my niece and nephew a non-stop start-to-finish Buffy-fest at my house just before they've got to go back to school again in September.

S1-S7 or just all of S7? See, that's why you're a cool Auntie ;-) My niece and nephew are too young for Buffy ... they only know SMG from Scooby Doo (which they absolutely love).

And do you also have S4 eps of Angel available on tape over there?

<S1-S7 or just all of S7?>

The whole enchilada - S1 through to S7 -with box no. 2 set to release Sept 8th, we can our marathon the weekend following. Mick's school will have started already, but if need be, I can write him a note on Monday...

Soraya's 10, and just as big a Spike-fan as her Auntie. Possibly bigger, even. She's got me beat with the whole scrapbooks and posters on the wall of her bedroom thing!

<i>And do you also have S4 eps of Angel available on tape over there?</i>

Yes, they were released last week as well. I haven't ordered them. I'm not a fan. Although I suppose it would be prudent to start watching AtS S4 when they'll start airing it next Sunday; to prepare myself for the arrival of Spike...

3d of august? When every fan is still on hiliday? Just great.

Oh. I just remembered I have them all on DVD, courtesy of an American Buffy fan who makes his own, and the rest is downloaded. For a moment there I got quite agitated...
