Index of Interviews and Articles


Maybe you think Wrapped in Plastic is just about Twin Peaks and Spectrum just about Buffy and Xena. Think again! Both publications have reviewed tons of movies and TV shows that you might not expect to be covered in those magazines. To make it easier for you to locate these hidden gems, we have assembled this handy index!

This list is not one hundred percent comprehensive. For instance, small news items are not included, nor letters column topics. Also, if you don’t remember that, say, Sarah Michelle Gellar co-starred in Cruel Intentions, or Leelee Sobieski starred in Joan of Arc, or Heather Graham and Sheryl Lee co-starred in Don’t Do It, this index will not provide you that information. Eventually we’d like to add such things, but for now this is what we have. Of course, if you do remember the above kind of info, you’ll find entries below for Cruel Intentions, Joan of Arc, and Don’t Do It quite useful. Check out the list to see if your favorite shows and movies have been covered!

Abbreviations used:
SSpectrum magazine, followed by the issue number in which the item appears
SSE - Spectrum Special Edition magazines (primarily reprinting material from issues of Spectrum and Wrapped in Plastic), followed by the issue number
WWrapped in Plastic magazine, followed by the issue number
ep – episode guide (in-depth synopses plus commentaries)
es – essay or article; usually more in-depth than a review, though short articles are also included in this category; may also include short episode guides (Brimstone; Eerie, Indiana; Oz)
re – review; in the case of movies, this may refer either to the theatrical release or the video/DVD release (both are written in essentially the same format)
tvm – made-for-TV movie; these are listed in our TV section, not movie section

This list is complete through Spectrum 31 and Wrapped in Plastic 60.
