Well, I'd have been able to test things much more thoroughly tonight if Point Pleasant had actually been on this evening on E4.

Instead, there was an old episode of Wife Swap, with a Brand New logo on it, and the PP EPG data!

Grrrr.

Nigel

I hear this has now been cancelled in the US, and looks like E4 have followed suit. Oh well just as it was getting interesting.

Ah, is that it? I wondered why it didn't appear last night, and Smallville was an hour early (not that they updated the EPG, mind...)

And then there was that thing a few weeks back where it was a 'behind the scenes' bit of rubbish, instead of an actual episode.

Oh well; it wasn't that good - for all that they went on about Buffy people being involved, it didn't have the same spark. I hoped it might pick up, but I guess we'll never know.

I bet they pitched it as something silly like "Buffy in the OC" and someone said "Sure, go ahead."

Perhaps a lot of the appeal for Buffy was that some of the really successful series were set around the high school, which was something that everyone can relate to, and there was a pretty small number of key cast members to keep track of.

PP did seem to have a lot of people that were getting involved very soon, and I'm not sure how easy that was to keep on top of. I've just been looking at the old Buffy stuff on C5, and by the second episode, it's pretty clear that you have a core team with Buffy, Giles, Xander and Willow. You know who to pay most attention to early on. PP doesn't seem to have done that; you've got all the assorted teenagers to track, evil devil henchman, parents, priest, someone who wants to shag one of the parents...

Nigel.

I wonder what they'll do with the repeat on T4 Saturday, I was looking forward to seeing this.

The last six episodes aren't going to be shown, instead they've (fox that is) is to release them on a box set and try to get same money out of the fans that got hocked...

I think it was good, but not that good!!!!

Even wierder they replaced it in the US with the six episodes of tru calling which got cancelled because of PP ARrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
