Editorial Review

The fifth season of Joss Whedon's hit series started out in excellent form as slayer extraordinaire Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) did battle with the most famous of vampires (that Dracula guy) and then went on to spar with another nemesis, little sister Dawn (Michelle Trachtenberg). Wait--Buffy has a teenage sister? Where has she been the past four years? And why is everyone acting like she's always been around? Turns out that young Dawn is actually "The Key," a form of pure energy that, true to its name, helps open the gates between different dimensions. To protect said key from falling into the wrong hands, a group of monks gave it human form and sent it to the fiercely protective Buffy for safekeeping, creating new memories of Dawn for everyone as if she'd existed... well, always. Why all the super secrecy? There's this very, very, very bad girl named Glory (Clare Kramer) who wants the key very badly, and will do anything to get it. Oh, and by the way, Glory isn't just a run-of-the-mill demon... she's way worse.

Some fans will tell you that Buffy "jumped the shark" with the introduction of Dawn, when in actuality this season was the pinnacle of the show's achievement, as there was superb comedy to be had ("Buffy Vs. Dracula," the double-Xander episode "The Replacement," the introduction of the "Buffybot" in "Intervention") as well as some of television's best drama. The Whedon-scripted and -directed "The Body" remains one of Buffy's best episodes, when the young woman who faces down supernatural death on a daily basis finds herself powerless in the wake of her mother's sudden passing. The first third or so of the season was a bit choppy, but once the evil Glory came into her own, Buffy was a television force to be reckoned with. Kramer was the show's best villain (after the evil Angel, natch), and the supporting cast was never better. But as always, it was the superb Gellar who was the powerful center of the show, sparking opposite lovelorn vampire Spike (James Marsters) and wrestling with moral dilemmas rarely seen on television. With this season, Buffy Summers became, like Tony Soprano, one of television's true greats. --Mark Englehart ... Read more

this season has some a little weak episodes.
but in jeneral, it's an awsome and sad and wonderful season.
it's so sad and episodes like The Body are so very well acted.
this is when Buffy suffers the most, her boyfriend leaves her, new sibling that's a key, a god mutch sronger than her...and she loses her mother

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Season!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of my favorite television shows I didn't watch it when it first started but one night I turned the televison on and switched the channel and there was an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I really liked what I saw and became a big fan of this show! The Fifth Season is one of my favorite seasons and all of the episodes are very good but my favorite episodes are The Body and The Gift. Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alyson Hannigan, James Marsters and the rest of the cast are all fantastic and this is the season in which Buffy meets Dracula, mysteriously gets a 14 year old sister named Dawn (That mystery is later revealed) and Buffy has to battle an evil goddess named Glory and I think that Glory was one of the best Big Bads and like The Mayor who was the best Big Bad this show ever had Glory could also be humorous as well as creepy and this is the season in which Riley who I actually kind of liked in the Fourth Season gets very whiney so I was happy when he left and also this is the year Spike declares his love for Buffy which really freaks her out and I liked this season so much I bought this DVD set and I think that the DVDs are very good and I'm very happy with the quality of the picture and the sound and I liked the extra features and I very highly recommend this DVD boxset!

5-0 out of 5 stars An original and uniquely entertaining TV series...
The brainchild of writer Joss Whedon, Buffy The Vampire Slayer originally entered American pop culture as a full-length feature film, starring Kristy Swanson, in 1992. But creator Whedon felt that the project never quite did justice to the full scope of his vision, so he managed turn the film into a television series in 1997. The result of Whedon's increased artistic freedom is a series that has enjoyed both critical acclaim and audience notoriety. Nominated for 14 Emmy's during its seven year run, the show managed to win only two (both in 1998 for Outstanding Makeup and Outstanding Music Composition in a television series). Yet, the true success for Buffy The Vampire Slayer is indicated by the massive success of the show's long run, strong DVD sales, and the overwhelming success of the series spin-off Angel...

Sarah Michelle Gellar plays the title role of Buffy Anne Summers, a teenage girl who stands alone among her generation as the "chosen one" able to "stand against vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer..." But Buffy is not alone in fulfilling her destiny as a slayer of vampires. She also receives help from the high school librarian, Rupert Giles (Anthony Stewart Head), who is a Watcher - the one chosen to train and guide slayers on their developmental path. In addition, new friends Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan - of American Pie fame) and Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon) quickly uncover the truth of Buffy's destiny, and they often aid her in defending the world against evil forces...

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Season 5) DVD offers a number of exciting episodes including the season premiere "Buffy vs. Dracula" in which Giles decides to leave Sunnydale believing that Buffy no longer needs him. But when Buffy runs into a vampire who claims to be Dracula (and he exhibits powers far beyond the scope of most vampires), she and Xander are forced to work together to slay him. In so doing, Dracula reveals that Buffy's powers derive from a source of evil, thus stoking the curiosity of Buffy who enlists Giles' help in studying the nature of the Slayer (as a result, he stays in Sunnydale)... Other notable episodes from Season 5 include "The Replacement" in which a demon's spell splits Xander into two versions of himself (one with all his positive attributes, one with all of his negative), and "Triangle" in which Willow and Anya accidentally conjure a troll which runs around Sunnydale leaving a path of destruction in its wake...

Below is a list of episodes included on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Season 5) DVD:

Editorial Review

He may be an old standby, but he never lets us down. When in doubt, turn to the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There's another, hidden adventure, too: this book really will help children learn to read. With his simple and often single-vowel vocabulary, the good Doctor knew what he was doing: hear it, learn it, read it--laughing all the way. The Cat in the Hat is a must for any child's library. ...

DAKOTA FANNING! Have fun being 11.It`s a great movie and you`lllaugh out loud.

5-0 out of 5 stars Timeless...
It's rare that an author can go on in the memories of others for as long as Seuss has, but this definitely started the ball rolling for him.It's a classic, no doubt there, so don't pass it by for your children.Who can't remember a rainy day as a child, nothing to do but look out the window and be bored, bored, bored?!But, in walks the zany cat who wants to have fun, but really doesn't know how.Instead, he tries but ends up messing up the house entirely, but he does know how to clean up and that little machine causes a lot of discussion in our house ("Mommy, why don't we have one of those? How does that work?", etc.). What I think is really good in this book is that it teaches children to do what is right, even though something may actually look like fun.The little boy in the story actually captures Thing One and Two and makes the cat leave with them.He could have joined in the mayhem but instead, honored what he had been taught and made the cat stop.The story is just fabulous and stirs all kinds of imagination in children.Great, great book and a staple for everyone's library.

5-0 out of 5 stars Miss Green's Class, Room 18, Lee Elementary - Azusa, CA
We like the characters in this book, especially the talking fish. The kids should never have let anyone or anything in their house while their mom was gone.It was fun to hear and to say the rhyming words and it helped us learn to read.You can read this book over and over again and it will still be fun. ...

Editorial Review

America 24/7 reunites the team that started the popular A Day in the Life series of photography books, Rick Smolan and David Elliot Cohen. Those books sought to profile a single day in a country or city through pictures. Here, the concept is similar but far more epic in scope: photojournalistic, people-driven snapshots of young and old at work and play throughout the entire United States over a given time period (in this case, one week). Another twist this time is that more than 25,000 amateur and professional photographers snapped all of the pictures with digital cameras. From the million-plus photos submitted, 25,000 were chosen for a total of 53 volumes, one on America, one for each state, and one each for D.C. and New York City. The result is an amazing array of subjects, but all shot with a consistency of tone. Composition, lighting, and camera effects aren't as important as the content. the gener! al sentiment one gets from the images: Muslim high school girls jumping rope in traditional headcovers, Roller Bladers on the Brooklyn Bridge, electrical lineman students learning to climb telephone poles, Eve Fletcher, a 76-year-old California surfer, or Tonto, the "seeing-eye" miniature horse. There are babies, children, rites of passage, monuments, forests, circus performers, movie stars, and cattlemen. The images might be a tad sentimental, but not overly so. In addition, readers can order a custom book jacket at www.america24-7.com/customcover, using their own digital photo as the cover. --Eric Reyes ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Gift Idea, Great Custom Cover
I bought this book as a gift after hearing about it on NPR. The custom cover looked fantastic. I'm not sure what happened with those customers who gave this a 1 star. My experience with the custom cover process and the service was extremely smooth. They told me it would take 3 weeks but I received it in 5 days. THERE'S NO BETTER GIFT FOR A SOMEONE INTERESTED IN PHOTOGRAPHY. GET READY FOR BIG HUGS AT THE UNWRAPPING!

5-0 out of 5 stars wonderful book and custom cover!
The book has beautiful photographs and wonderful captions full of miniature stories. I ordered a cover, and when I had trouble with uploading (I'm not very computer literate) their customer service team got back to me in a day and they helped me through it -- even resizing my picture for me. My custom cover order came in three weeks. I have to say it was really worth the effort seeing the final cover in my hands. I'm surprised they don't charge us more for the whole thing.I've ordered many more as gifts.Their new site is easier to use and I was even able to track my order using the USPS tracking number they gave me. I would expect any company trying out a whole new idea to take a few months to get such a large operation together, but now its June and the site seems so be working great! I would give it another chance if you had problems in the past. I'm a satisfied customer and I hope they get more positive reviews because I know they're really trying their best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Photography book ever!Love the Custom Cover!
I LOVED THIS BOOK!It was the perfect one of a kind gift for my dad, who has everything. The book itself was a perfect visualization of America and the Custom Cover was a wonderful bonus offer.Where else can you get the chance to put your own image on a New York Times best seller?!I've read some reviews complaining about Custom Covers and I have to say that in my case and with most of my friends who have ordered, everything went smoothly -- their site was easy to use, customer service was prompt and helpful, shipment was on time and the cover print was excellent. I'd give them another try...I know I'll be ordering more Custom Covers. ... Read more

Imagine calling Fort Knox and asking the best way to break in and steal the gold.Don't have the guts for it?Don't worry, because Hunter Fulghum has done it for you.He has contacted everyone from the U.S. Dept. of Energy to his local alien experts to find out how you would do everything from Swim the English Channel to Borrow the Mona Lisa to Start an Independant Nation.

Aside from being funny and quite interesting, the book is very well written; I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book
Great fun to read, though some of it is a bit obvious... By the way I am starting an independant nation, got this book because I figured I might as well. I was already planning on starting it before I got the book. Getting an island from Nicaragua to make it. Anyways good book. Get it.
