adventures close to the hell mouth

disclaimer: i religously watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first few seasons. it was funny and well written. something happened between Angel leaving, the arrival of the army special ops unit to Sunnydale and Buffy's mom dying that just didn't make the show cutting edge anymore. the basic plot (Buffy kicking butt) hasn't really changed over the years and the subplots just keep getting more esoteric.

last night after the latest installment of Countdown to Goodbye on dawson's creek, i tuned in to watch angel. the show wasn't too bad, but the plotlines have gotten so convoluted that heather and i spent most of the show trying to figure out what was going on. gone are the days with a minimal number of characters and a sitcom-like "battle a brand new demon every week" mentality.

Informal Poll
