We used to watch Sailor Moon every day when we lived in Canada, but now that we're in Virginia, we have found that the show is very hard to track down. We thought we found the slot for a few months on one cable station, but then they moved it again. My daughter keeps asking about it but she has so far had to settle for creating her own adventures using her Sailor Scouts action figures.

    I can't wait to see her face when the video arrives!"
