That's right, you don't like Superstar. Silly girl ;)

If you're feeling masochistic, I would suggest a Riley marathon. But thinking up titles hurts my head.

Riley Finn, proof that Joss is only human after all.

what can you recommend for a giles marathon? because, for me, buffy was all about the ASH. *swoons*

I have regular Buffy Marathons!
From time to time when I'm feeling blah or had a bad week at work, I'll pick a season and watch through the weekend. A big Buffy Zone out.
Angel marathons too, but not as frequent, as I still watch David Boreanez on Bones regularly and can't bear to watch Fred die.
