I have been waiting to write this binge watch post for a long time! But, I wasn’t able to write it until I was done with the series, so I am finally done, and I can finally talk about it! Yesterday, my husband and I watched the series finale of Angel, which we have been watching for over a year!
Angel is a spinoff show of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It is a show created by Joss Whedon, who also created Buffy, along with Firefly, Dollhouse, amongst others. He also wrote the most recent Avengers movie. It is essentially about a vampire who has a soul and spends his life trying to help the helpless, with the assistance of his friends. It is an action-packed show, which is really fun and interesting to watch. There are also times that it is sad and anger-inducing. As the show progresses through its five seasons, the story changes and evolves.
The final season is especially interesting. It is full of emotional highs and lows, and has a thought-provoking plot. There are some points that are absolutely hilarious, and more people who were on Buffy come onto the show, which is fun for those of us who watched it. There are some parts in the final season that are so heartbreaking, it actually brought me to tears (not at all surprising, I cry during shows and movies frequently). One thing to know about Joss Whedon is that he tends to kill off characters. It’s almost an ongoing joke about his work, because it happens so frequently. It makes it hard to watch sometimes, but after watching the whole series of Angel, it was a really good show, and I guess most of the deaths were justified or good for the story.
Angel is a great show to watch for people who have seen Buffy or other things that Joss Whedon has done. I would also recommend it for people who like show that are full of action and some sci-fi/fantasy elements. There are story lines involving the occult, vampires, demons, etc. So, if you can’t handle those kinds of topics, this is probably not the show for you. If you’re interested in giving Angel a try, the entire series is available of Netflix. Have you seen Angel or any other Joss Whedon show/movie? Tell me your thoughts in the comments! Have a great week!
