When this spin off of the series Buffy
began, I was sad the relationship between Buffy and Angel had to
end. It did relieve me to know the character Iíd come to love would
live on. The first few episodes I watched had me very intrigued.
Angel moves to Los Angeles to find his way. Uses crime fighting to
right the wrongs of his past. A past when he was a vampire without a
soul. Great emphasis, good show. Throw in the mix of Cordelia and
the introduction of Doyle, it equaled series rating power house. I
will always be a loyal Buffy fan, but I was more excited to see the
next episode of Angel on Tuesday nights. Then it all changed.
By the end of the first season my
enthusiasm for the show started to decline. The initial blow was the
departure of Doyle, whether his choice or the writers. That change
was a great loss. During the second season the addition of Gunn and
Wesley renewed some of that strength, then we were stuck again. No
more Angel and Buffy crossovers. The reason, money, and Buffy moved
to another network. Someone got pissed off. Just leave it up to a
big executive in a office, who only cares about a buck and
vendettas, to screw up a good thing. However, as time progressed.
things on the show only worsened.
Good Wolfram and Hart evil characters stayed on
the show as long as it took to chew flavor out of gum. That had me
seething. The hint of feelings between Cordelia and Angel made me
vomit, although the sex with Buffy and Spike had me speechless. The
characters who would never touch each other were doing just that.
Having touchy feelies, YUCKY! Oh, I almost forgot the thing with
Angel having a son was total sham. Not really the idea of him having
a son, but the way the writers went about creating the story behind
it. Honestly, Angel should have been able to rear his child up from
infancy, but noooo! They had to send the baby off to a Demon
Dimension. And look what came back in itís place. A supposed teenage
boy with an ax to grind against his father. Like angel doesnít have
The show that I had come to love ended up the
show going nowhere fast. Then the scraping at the bottom of the
barrel began. Cordelia sleeps with Angelís son. Oops, I forgot
again, that was evil Cordelia. Nevertheless, still a bad move.
To sum it all up, at the end of the season 4 a
lot of questions were left unanswered. I guess my title should have
been, ď Can Angel Be Saved?Ē Letís hope the writers were busy during
the summer hiatus. Coming up with a way to restore Angel back to
itís former glory. I would like to see it survive...........
