Anyone else not impressed with Angelus in season 4? Dont get me wrong, i own all the DVDS of both shows and have been an avid fan since they first aired...but for some reason, I find the portrayal of Angelus in Season 4 cringe worthy. I feel like he was a neutered version..even though ATS is supposedly the darker more adult show, I feel like Angelus was infinitely more scary and sexy in season 2 of BtvS. Season 4 Angelus does nothing but taunt everyone while locked in a cage, parade around LA like a hammy actor who thinks hes the best thing ever(and the way all the demons fawn all over him I find completely ridiculous and OCC for the verse) make big speeches, and beat up Faith. Oh and he kills the beast...I just feel he is completely over the top, mustache twirling villain...I have to be honest, Im almost embarrassed to watch...Willow,Faith and Wesley are the only redeeming parts of that arc for me. Never once do I honestly feel afraid that he will hurt someone. Am I alone in this? Maybe its because David Boreanaz is older, or the writing...I just feel like hes kind of lame in this arc.
