For those Joss Whedon fanatics out there I haven't watched any of this series yet and as such would like to know is it worth having a look at. Seen it in HMV this morning for a great price .
Aside from the Eliza Dushka being incredibly hot is it a good series.

I'm sure DAve and Bouncy have there opinions here :D

Got it for Christmas but haven't cracked it open yet.

My other half says she isn't bothered, even though she loves the other 3 Joss series. I am trying to leave it as long as possible in case she changes her mind. I have heard it is awesome, though. :D

I have the box set that combines Season 1 & 2, which is cool but when I opened it, realised that it doesn't have the comic that comes free when you get Season 2 by itself. :x

The two season set is the one i was looking at. Sure i'll have a crack at it anyway. Its a t a good price so its worth a shot.

I'm a Whedon/Dushku fan but I, too, couldn't be bothered. We watched the first 20 minutes of the first ep but didn't do anything for either of us.

To be honest, it didn't take off until eppy 5 or six.

I think it is a very good series, though it does indeed take a while to get going properly (and it is a much more epic story than it initially appears to be).

It's a shame it only got two seasons, but I think Joss finished telling the story as well as he could.
