Supernatural Season 1: Signed and Ready plus Ernest Borgnine!

Do you do Supernatural?
Well I've not seen it yet, but it's one of those shows that I keep meaning to check out. Sylvia Bond over at Pink Raygun is a big fan and I love her reviews of the episodes but so far I've never actually seen one. In the new Kids Need To Read auction Season 1 is up for grabs - here's the details:

This 6-DVD set is a collector’s dream signed by the show’s creator and four of its cast members. The front cover is signed by Eric Kripke (writer, producer and director), Chad Lindberg (Ash) and the versatile actor Frederic Lehne (Yellow-eyed Demon). The inside cover is signed by series stars Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) and Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester). In addition to the DVDs, the package includes Team Winchester stickers, postcards and a Team Winchester hat!

This sounds like a great opportunity to get your collection going, so head over to eBay and get bidding!

Did you see The Poseiden Adventure the other night?
Well, me and Hubby watched the first bit, reminiscing about the Bank Holiday weekends of our youth when blockbusters such as Poseiden, 20, 000 Leagues Under The Sea, Ghost of Flight 401 and all the Sinbad films would trotted out in TV...Good times. It also lead to a debate about how great Ernest Borgnine was (Ghost of Flight 401 had me hiding as a kid!) and how he must have died years ago. Yet today I read on Whedonesque that Amber Benson (who played Tara from Buffy) is in a new film "Another Harvest Moon" starring none other than Ernest Borgnine, who is still acting at aged 91! One look at his IMDb record and you can see that he has been working steadily all the time - he was even the voice of 'Mermaid man' in Spongebob (you gotta love that little yellow square dude!). I'm thrilled Amber Benson has a new role (she is a fine actress), and even more thrilled to find out Mr Borgnine is still with us and acting. Fair made my day.
