    Hey everyone, so….I have to own up. I so enjoyed the end of Season 3 with Angel in the watery grave that I pushed on and binge watched Season 4 in a week. It was a mistake any of us could have made and I hope you will all forgive me. It’s been difficult to comment as a result. But I’ve been pleased to hear William and Derek critique the things which need critiquing. Like most of you I wasn’t a big fan of Cordelia playing evil or seducing Connor.

    Anyway, I have a question for you all and for Derek and William to discuss? Was this season the switch from any pretence of monster-of-the-week to fully serialised cult TV? Watching it I felt a lot of emotional resonance was lost because the plot twists came too thick and fast. Do tell me if I’m wrong but this is why I haven’t put much effort into watching current shows like Arrow or The 100 because I perceive them to be more soap than serious emotional journeys.

    Orpheus – Best episode of Angel in a long time. Loved how they wrapped up Faith’s storyline in the Angel series, though I would’ve preferred her to stick around. Curious that it took Fred to remember Willow ensouling Angelus and calling on her to help them but it was good to see how she fitted into the show even just for one episode. Willow had a lot of chemistry with both Fred and Wes in her brief appearance. The Willow/Cordy reunion was a lowlight of the episode. I just didn’t like evil Cordy been stuck in bed hiding away from everyone. The flashbacks to Angel’s past were intriguing and the Angel/Angelus fight strangely felt like something the show had built up to for a long time and finally got the pay off. Angel’s back, Faith & Willow are gone and oh joy everybody knows Cordy’s preggers.

    Players – A step down from Orpheus. Rewatching it I remembered that Cordy had tipped Angel off with something she said very early on in the ep that she had said to him as the Master and was just waiting around for him to figure it out so the ending didn’t surprise me except that Angel had used the rest of the gang to help him confront evil Cordy. The translation from the text and what Wes translated Angel’s writing to was rather amusing – “I am not a bucket head!” The Gunn & Gwen side storyline was enjoyable. While it was good to see Gunn get his own mini-storyline and kick some ass without the rest of the gang helping him out it did feel a bit weird for the show to give us a side storyline when everything in this season has been wrapped together. Guess they just really wanted Gwen back and to give her character a bit of closure with her powers.
