    The first half of Angel Season 4 managed to make inherently interesting stuff such as Vegas, Higher-Beings and Scientific Fred, extremely dull. It's quite an achievement.

    I fell out of love with Angel around that time.

    I'd say in that case they got Vegas spot-on;)



    Well you're half right:D

    @Athena Evil and dull. Quite a few of my friends share that view, we should start a club:D

    @Mr Trick And really really seedy! I was shocked at how blatant it all was; the strippers and the prostitutes etc. I mean, it's been almost six years since we were out there and maybe it's changed, but I doubt it.....

    The lights were cool at night, but that's about it.

    Willow was a bad friend. Apparently, that's an unpopular opinion, lol.
     
    Mr. Pole: Not by people that actually have taste and know what a good friend is. ha!

    Willow is Buffy's bad minion/lackey/slave, but her good friend.

    Giles was right to leave when he did - sometimes you have to kick the bird out of the nest to get her to fly. If he had stayed, Buffy would have relied on him to take care of both her and Dawn.

    @Athena Yep! I have no intention of ever going to Vegas;)

    I think that opinion holds more weight post-S4. Up to that point Willow had been a great friend, and most of her screw ups can be put down to the fact that she's a teenager!:D

    But isn't the only reason people were sad to see Giles leave when he did because the show suffered? If you are basing his choice on logic then I think most people feel like you than he was right to leave.

    I hated to see him go - gone for any season. He's one of my favorite characters. Somehow I doubt most people agree, though. ;)

    Willow was never addicted to magic.
     
    thetopher: She just liked the power.
    ChaseRules: She liked feeling important because of that.
    GwenRaiden: She was addicted to hair dye.

    I think Giles is my favourite character. Though I did end up liking Wesley a lot after he manned up a bit in Angel.

    My least favourite Angel seasons were the second and third ones. I really disliked Connor and I wasn't a fan of Darla either. And the "darker" Angel was disappointing too. Aside from leaving the Wolfram and Hart employees to die and the firing of Cordelia and Wesley he didn't seem to change that much.

    Which could mean he was never really nice to begin with . Also he puts on a good show in Buffy .

    Angel? Yeah, I don't think he particularly is nice. In life he was a drunken, womenising brawler. Without a soul he was one of the most horrific vampires around. With a soul he spent a century chasing after Darla despite her preying on the innocent. After that he does little of use until he sees Buffy and becomes... obsessed. A bit like he was with a certain seer. Then he becomes "good".

    He's more similar to Spike than I realised.

    Well after all, Angel was Spike's 'yoda' - taught him an awful lot.

    To expand on this, I hated it when the gang would give her the stink eye any time she used magic for any reason in season 6. Like when she uses it to surf the web and find information on who froze the security guard. What's wrong with that?!

    1. I like Riley. (sue me)
    2. I felt Dawn got more tolerable as the show went on. I wouldn't trade her existence for anything.
    3. I don't think Where the Wild Things Are is the worst episode because it had Giles singing. I feel even the worst episodes of Buffy had a good line or moment.
    4. Kennedy is the worst. I don't even care for her in the comics.
