Today's Angel Note

Gwen Raiden! Aw, remember her? I really wish the show would've been able to make a better go of her. Particularly since she was never able to be 1/100th as interesting in anything she's done since then.

I know, right? She was such a great character, especially during all of that Cordelia nonsense, they should have had her instead.

JA said...

She's in the comic series sixth season. Although not a lot. I think she's Connor's girlfriend now...

Joe Reid said...

Wow. You take the good, you take the bad, I guess.

And it seemed like the plan WAS to have her step in to fill the Cordelia void, but that never panned out, unfortunately. I really hope it wasn't because she got the lead in Reunion, because how much would that decision have sucked?

Joe Reid said...

Oh, and speaking of mythical further seasons of Angel, YouTube is lousy with fan-made credits sequences for a Season 6. This one is my favorite. Spike notwithstanding.

I actually liked the Reunion concept, but never would have started watching if I knew that a 20-episode mystery would be cancelled after 13 episodes.

Alexa Davalos was also one of the better parts -- possibly the best part -- about last year's Feast of Love, which is otherwise a lousy movie.

I can't put in to words how much I wish they did Angel and Buffy extra seasons as an animated series instead of as the stupid comic books. You can't get the Sci-Fi or Cartoon Network to pop for that?

Grunt said...

Tom, I think you probably can't get the actors to do the V.O. work.

Thanks for the link to the fan-made credit sequence Joe, that was fun.
