    Thank God for that, otherwise the dating pool would be very limited.

    Perfectly valid and absolutely fine. It's always a matter of taste. I have a personal weakness for tall, dark and handsome myself. Angel was a too slim for those wide shoulders in S1-2 but by S3 he sure had filled out nicely. Must have been some nice gyms in that hell dimension. Although for me the best DB has ever looked were the first Seasons on Bones.

    I really don't have any problem with you not finding him attractive, I feel that way about 90% of the male celebrities everyone is sobbing over. I just didn't like the way you phrased it, saying «he's just not what everybody says he is» comes off to me as you saying you don't see it therefore it's not there and everyone seeing it is wrong. Anyways, as long as we agree that there's nothing wrong with people having a different opinion then I'm fine. :)

    I think him at his most handsome is season 1 of BtVS. But he's looking extremely good in the couple first seasons of Bones, a lot better than he looked in season 5 of AtS, so much that it's ridiculous. And it makes me a bit sad that he looked his worst in his last season as Angel as I love the character so much.
     
    Anyanka Bunny Killer: He was so bloated, it was ridiculous. A female actress wouldn't have gotten away with that crap.

    IMO the first few years on Bones is the best he's looked since S2 AtS. Booth also has more color in his wardrobe and DB looks best in brown and blue. But you do know there was a reason why DB looked like he did in S5, right? It's IMO better he didn't look his best rather than not being able to walk again.

    DB had a busted knee and surgery in S5. That's why Angel was sitting down so much, why you can see DB walking with a limp and why he got 'fat' (no working out). In between scenes he was walking on crutches. James Marsters even talked about it at a con in regards to the fight in 'Destiny'. They had to shoot that extremely carefully because one wrong move and DB wouldn't have been able to walk again.

    Yes I saw a video of this convention and what James said. And I thank him for having established the truth. I saw a lot of criticism on David about his weight gain, that he could have been careful, that it was not professional because as a vampire he is not supposed to be fat...
    People judge without knowing. He could not do sport anymore, the drugs made him fat ... sometimes, it happens in life that we have no choice !

    Yerh, One (former) poster on these boards used to go on and on about 'chubby chops' Angel in S5 and how this made Spike 'so much better' in her view. *shrug*
    I have to say that from my perspective the weight gain is hardly noticeable; there were so many changes in that final season- especially in how Angel dresses- that I think the body issues are exaggerated a bit. Black is slimming after all.

    To be honest, I didn't even realize that he had gained weight in season 5. All I knew is he didn't look as good but I didn't know what to attribute it to exactly. So it's not that noticeable, I guess. It's probably a mix of that and the hair for me.

    Though there are times when it didn't really bother me, he still looked good here :

    The season 5 hair is worse than the weight :p
     
    sosa lola: Love your Spander banner! :)
    BuffyBot22: I agree, the hair was much much worse than the almost unnoticeable weight gain.

    Angel looked his best in S3 and S1 of AtS IMO.

    Lol sure that's why she didn't like him after that first meeting.

    I agree, I don't think a viewer really notices the weight gain unless they jump straight from WTTH to Not Fade Away. That's why I even saw the gain in the first place, due to hindsight. Not that it's a problem, whether he had surgery or not, he's damn well allowed to gain a little weight. Unlike his character, he is not, in fact, eternally the same.
