Cult Times Special #27, Buffy 2003 Cult Times Special #27, Buffy 2003
(Reference #CS27)

Only a short while ago, one of the leaders in the field of Cult Television, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, ended. We present a Special that looks at the reasons for its success and the characters that we came to know and love, along with a look ahead to what's next for spin-off series Angel.

With these Buffy features…

Profiles: We look at seven varied characters over the course of Buffy's seven-year run and see how they evolved. What turned Willow from quiet nerd to powerful wiccan? How did Spike redeem himself? Why is Wesley deserving of admiration? And what were the factors that turned Faith's life around?
Joss Whedon: The show's creator looks back with fondness on his work so far, and looks forward to a movie based on his much-missed Firefly, the possibility of Buffy on the big screen, and the changes taking place for Angel's fifth season.
Top Nine Heroes: Who were the true heroes of Buffy, and why? We put forward a selection of unlikely candidates, from shoe queen Cordelia to Principal Snyder, and explain how they fought for their beliefs, however simplistic, and won through!
Relationship Chart: Forgotten who did what to whom? Then follow our relationship chart and see who killed Jenny Calendar, who had naughty rude sex with Spike, and the unlikely link between Riley and Oz. All your questions answered!
Jeph Loeb: Superman and Batman comics writer and Smallville producer Jeph Loeb looks at what might have been in the shape of 'Buffy: The Animated Series'. Discover what might have happened, who would have featured, and why it sadly never happened.
Episode Guide: A complete guide with season overviews to all seven years of Buffy.

Plus a whole host of interviews, including…
Angel: After many appearances, Andy Hallett's soulful green demon Lorne became a regular last season, and he's set his sights on bigger things this year as he gets his own department to run at Wolfram & Hart!
Battlestar Galactica: The cast and crew explain why they believe their new mini-series of Battlestar is better than anything else around, and reveal the changes since the ship last soared across TV screens, including the Cylons!
Tremors: Executive producer David Israel on making the TV spin-off from the film series, with Graboids, Shriekers and Assblasters all lining up to fight Burt Gummer for a stake in the small valley town of Perfection, Nevada.

Cult Times Special #26, The Immortals 2003 Cult Times Special #26, The Immortals 2003
(Reference #CS26)

We study The Immortals, the ideas that keep coming back for more, the show, the concepts and the characters that just won't die.
With these features:
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: How has Joss Whedon succeeded in giving new life to the undead? We look at the role of Buffy and its spin-off, Angel, in reconfiguring ancient ideas into a newer, hipper form.
Star Trek: The show that's outlived all others, now into its fourth live-action spin-off. But what elements have kept it strong over the years, and is it remaining true to its past or refusing to move with the times?
Gene Roddenberry: The creator of Star Trek continues to have the Midas touch when it comes to TV shows. Yet Andromeda and Earth: Final Conflict may not have turned out as he'd originally envisaged, and their roots may have been in an all-too-familiar series.
Doctor Who: While its 26-year run remains unsurpassed, no new episodes have appeared for seven years. We attempt to pin down the reasons why, even now, countless people refuse to let it go, and its continuing legacy in book or audio form.
Superman: Sometimes a concept can be just one character. Over the years, in comics, on film and on TV, Superman has evolved into various different versions. We chart his progress from glorified cop to romantic lead.
Highlander: The best show to lay claim to the word 'Immortal'? This series managed to drag itself past a series of poorly-received movies and into a long-running Fantasy show. Is there still room for the Immortal Scotsman?

Plus a whole host of interviews, including…
Stargate SG-1: Star Richard Dean Anderson slips on his producers hat and joins fellow execs Robert C Cooper, Michael Greenburg and Brad Wright in discussing the next phase of the Stargate project.
Alias: Creator and executive producer JJ Abrams looks back over the two seasons so far and discusses the many changes that have taken place over the second year.
Farscape: Ben Browder looks back on the last days of the series and that ending, relates the joys of having his wife on set, and explains why his grandmother thought he was a whore.
The Simpsons: Executive producer Al Jean recently popped over to the UK in celebration of the show's 300th episode, and we were there to discuss the incredible success story of the world's longest-running cartoon.
The Goodies: Bill Oddie, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Graeme Garden look at the influence of the Seventies, and run through their extensive career credits so far.
Futurama: An episode guide to the entire series!
