Actually, I think Angel and Buffy would both have benefited from being a little more disconnected - I wonder if Riley would have grown on the Buffy audience more, for example, if they hadn't done that crossover during the shows' respective first and fourth seasons and reinforced the pair as soulmates in the audience's mind. Also, not being so tied to continuity would have meant not having to believe Cordelia was younger than Fred.
And while it would have fit with the whole shared continuity thing, it would be deflating to think about - Angel's the show's hero, and it's better to let the hero die than castrate him by having him saved by people who show up out of nowhere.
I would have liked Buffy to come back to "Assist" the gang not save them.
One other thing: David (Angel) as an actor was -really- slugging it out in Angel Season 5. He looks -terrible- through most of it; when you see him in "Bones" now, he's easily lost 20+ lbs from his look in this season of Angel. He just got very "puffy" by the end of Angel All that pigs blood must be too fattening
One nitpick.. but one that stuck with me through the whole series. In S4 of Buffy, S1 of Angel, they had a crossover in which Buffy delivers the "Jewel of Amare" or something to Angel. The whole thing about the jewel is that it renders him virtually invincible and able to walk in open daylight.
He hides the jewel underneath the hotel, and it NEVER reappears in any episode ever again.
At the end of the ep, he smashes the ring to pulp with a brick on the rooftop.
Yes, one of the stupidest things Angel ever did.
That ring would have been helpful during the many apocoli. I guess the writers didn't want to have that "cheat" available.
Ok, I missed that part. Yep, you're right, pretty stupid, IMHO...
Well if you actually thought about WHY he did it, it's not stupid at all. He made his reasons crystal clear, and they make sense considering his situation and everything.
