ANGEL Comes To An End

By Marcus Ferrell

Five years of ANGEL and seven years of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Tonight, the Whedonverse as we know it wraps up a long run on television, perhaps never to return.

To celebrate and mourn the passing of a combined twelve years of great television, TV Editor Tara O’Shea and columnist Scott Nance provide retrospectives on both the pasts of ANGEL and the Whedonverse:

What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

In this editorial, Tara O’Shea looks back over the history of ANGEL and examines how the characters have changed: "Over the years, ANGEL managed to take formerly supporting BUFFY characters such as Cordelia, Wesley, and-let’s face it-Angel himself and develop them as characters in a way that was organic and satisfying..."

Tonight, Entropy Wins

Scott Nance continues with the next installment of his Emotional Resonance & Rocket Launchers columns, this time focusing on the work of ANGEL creator Joss Whedon and the crew of Mutant Enemy, Inc: "The tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of inert uniformity? How about the inert uniformity of the next television season?"

Check back on Thursday for Anthony Karcz’s review of the finale, "Not Fade Away."
