Just watched the antepenultimate episode of Angel (NO spoilers here just vacuous ponderings), and thoroughly enjoyed it, and will again when I rewatch with hubbie this evening. I know it has upset a lot of people, knew it would when I was inadvertently spoiled ages ago, but I long ago decided to sit back and enjoy, and leave the deep analysis for others. I do that, but quietly and in my own way. I think it is very easy to forget about the big picture if focussed on a particular relationship or plot-line, or problems with discontinuity etc. I guess it boils down to the fact that sometimes I have to tell myself 'it's just a frickin' TV show, get over it', regardless of what I have learned in my cultural studies subjects where everything is a text, open for interpretation, full of subtext, layered, meta-ed, intertextualised, blah, blah, blah. Anyway two to go, for which I am totally unspoiled and plan to stay that way!
Must return to "my favourite Buffy episode project", and continue reviewing hubbie's job application.
