I used to LOVE Buffy The Vampire slayer when I was younger. I have always been fascinated by vampires and that show aired and gave me something to tune into, which was cool. I also had a massive crush on Sarah Michelle Gellar. should have realized that I was gay then, right? lol. As far as the Angel series goes, I never really liked it too much. My sister once bought a magazine from a shop and with it came a free Angel book. Enough said lol.
It's weird when it comes to Angel. He was amazingly interesting in the Buffy series, but then he was sort of just toned down on his own show, most especially in the early episodes, though it did pick up after awhile when they kicked off the story arc centering around Angel and Darla. I liked his show, but Buffy is certainly a better choice to watch. Also, whatever happened to that Angel book of yours?
I loved Angel but the I disregard the show as canon. It was a lucky fantic writer's alternate universe.
There is no way Angel had a son with Cordelia. Blech.
I think the writers allowed David to "infect" Angel. All of a sudden, Angel was goofy...it was really out of character.
Connor was awful. They were starting to bring it back together (Lindsey coming back, etc) and then it was cancelled. So sad it went out the way it did b/c there were arcs that were great, but yeah, much of it was just not great. It got lost b/c Joss had BtVS and Firefly going on throughout the run.
