19 down, 3 to go. boy you guys are jaded. i'm still enjoying the hell out of it. yeah, i can see where the seasons 'arc' goes into a bit of a holding pattern, but in place of forward motion we do get some really wonderful character based episodes- i've enjoyed all of 'em so far. and the 'holding pattern' is nothing new. people play up season 2, but that had some of the most annoying 'monster of the week/we'll get back to the arc next week' episodes i can remember. just when you want to see more development with Angel, etc, we get a completely disposable, formula episode about the boys swim team turning into lizard men. this isn't my favorite season, but i don't think its anywhere close to being as bad as some have made it out to be.
