Mmmmmm..... Angel.....

We picked up the Angel Season 1 box set last night and watched the first couple of episodes. I 'm very excited to watch all of them since I didn't see Season 1 when it first aired. I don't really remember why I came to the show later since I've been a Buffy fan from the beginning, but I think it was because I wan't a huge fan of Angel's character at first. I didn't really like him that much until I started watching the spinoff regularly and got into how they brought in the goofy/nerdy dimension to Angel's personality rather than make him sulk and brood every week (which I find not only boring but quite laughable!) I still like to poke fun at "Broody Angel" scenes when they pop up but at least the other characters on the show poke fun at him too now and don't take him so incredibly seriously. It's so hard to contain my laughter when I go back and look at early Buffy episodes when Angel was so serious (and shirtless) every episode! I still love those eps but not in a "BUFFY+ANGEL 4EVA!!!" type of way.

Anyway, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the first two episodes in the set becasue I had always heard that the first half of the season was a bit rocky and didn't find it's way until the later episodes. I'm looking forward to viewing the rest of the set now (even more than before.)
