Oh noes! In which I use unqualified superlatives thus inviting enjoyable discussion

fannish5's question this week: What 5 series/books/movies can you rewatch/reread time and again?

  1. Dorothy Sayers, Murder Must Advertise or The Nine Tailors
  2. John M. Ford, The Final Reflection
  3. John Galsworthy, The Man of Property and its 1967 BBC adaptation
  4. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  5. Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.

Some of those choices need no justification (e.g., the best novel in the English language, plus Sayer's best, plus the best TV show evar). Mike Ford's Klingon novel might need justification for people who think that Trek tie-in books were always the flat-rate crap they are now, and for people who haven't read any of Ford's writing. Galsworthy I can't justify, but I love him and his d—d screamers! and Edwardian sentimentality anyway.

Random link for today: video of a notable walk. Mr Pedia says, "I wouldn't make that walk without a jet pack."
