I am going to start watching Angel for the first time when Bryan's new podcast starts.
I enjoyed the Angel series more than I thought I would. There's some excellent story telling over the course of the five seasons.
I'm not enjoying the storyline they have going on right now and it's pretty late in the show I think it said it was episode 80. I'm not going to tell you what's going on but it's creepy lol
Don't want to spoil the Angel newbies but I have a hunch which storyline you're referring to and I agree that I wasn't a fan of that one myself.
