I read this on tvguide.com today. Sounds like they may a bit sorry they got rid of such a good show but dont want to admit it. Question: I just read that WB chief Garth Ancier insinuated that had 20th Century Fox and the network had just waited until May to make a decision about Angel's renewal, the show may still be on the air. Of the myriad of questions that come to mind (such as, why on earth would Garth say such a thing unless his motive was to crush every Angel fan out there), my main question is why did they force themselves to make a decision so early? And even if they had their reasons for making an early decision, why didn't the network, when they began to doubt their decision to cancel, vindicate the many fans who were unyielding in their efforts to save Angel? The fans never gave up hope, Joss Whedon wrote a "series finale" that could easily have been a season finale, and yet, they made him strike the sets and lose David Boreanaz so there can be little hope for any Angel movies. Have I mentioned that I hate the WB? — Sarah Matt: This too-little-too-late hindsight felt awfully self-serving to me. It seems clear the network was determined to cancel the show, early deadline or not, and giving Joss a chance to plan an appropriate finale was better than delivering the blow in May. But you're absolutely right that when WB realized that its development for this season was so disappointing (failing, for instance, to get the Dark Shadows remake pilot right), that they could have made an effort to reverse the decision on Angel. Regardless of the result, it would have been seen as a good-faith effort to right a wrong.
