My Thoughts:

This one has some good, funny moments... but it isn't one that will become a favorite. I mean it is worth the time put in to watch it but not one that I will feel the need to watch every year. I found the guy that was throwing the party every year to be predictable... but at the same time who he ended up being a bit on the stupid side. Though that is really just a minor part of the movie.

My Thoughts:
This is a TV Movie that originally aired on Lifetime. It is a true story. I found it to be a very interesting story... and a powerful drama. The storyline easily kept my interest through-out the entire film. I felt the ending was a real bummer. But when it comes to true stories you can't always have a happy ending. This film stars Faith Ford... who I am familiar with from the series Hope & Faith (where she actually played Hope instead of Faith). Another familiar face was Nigel Bennett who played LaCroix on Forever Knight. I feel comfortable recommending this one to anyone that likes a good drama/true story. But keep in mind it is a TV movie and I know some don't care for those.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

One of my all-time favorite episodes. This is the first time in Buffy, that they really used flashbacks to the past of Angel. I love those flashbacks to earlier lives of an immortal main character. This is the main reason I enjoyed watching the Highlander series.
