Cleared out a videotape from circa 1998, it had two tv show episodes on it. One each of 'Due South' and 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'. The 'Due South' ep was a season 3 missive entitled 'Bounty Hunter' in which a female bounty hunter named Janet and her three moppets show up. Fraser falls for her even though she's a married, self pitying whiner. This was dull.
"Dad, mom and I saw you once about every 16 weeks and sometimes then you slept out with the dogs."
The 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' ep was a season 2 ep named 'Innocence' in which Angel has lost his soul and he's sort of rampaging around Sunnydale. If Drusilla is so mad, who does her eye make up and fancy manicure? Xander needs to shut up. Willow finds out about Xander dating Cordelia and makes it all about herself as usual. Even the gypsies seem to acknowledge the curse they placed on Angel was stupid. Giles is a clod. Jenny lies and lies and lies. Buffy learns about Jenny's lies via a prophetic dream. What happened to these dreams in later seasons? Buffy attacks Jenny who owns up to her smug lies. Buffy deals with the judge who is a useless non-event. Jenny is exiled from the Scooby gang. This was okish.
"A 400 pound wino offered to wash my hair."
"I'm naming all the stars."
"You can't see the stars love, that's the ceiling. Also it's day."
"What are we going to do?"
"Leaning towards blind panic myself."
Looking back on this show which I saw in re-runs, one does wonder about certain things. Did Al get any time off from his Observer job? Did his fashion choices indicate he was colour blind? Even in the series finale the duo never got a reunion hug after years of incorporeality. In fact did Sam erase their friendship by his actions in the series finale by saving Al's first marriage? Sam needed to save Al's marriage to his soulmate Beth after the crap Sam pulled in the Vietnam eps but was their a price? Does Sam have a home timeline to leap back to? If not, is that why he never returned home? With al's past changed so radically, he will be someone else entirely. After knowing him for five seasons, Sam has fundamentally changed who his best friend is. We don't know who Al is anymore. How depressing.
