  • I can’t say it sounds lame because it’s continuing the Angel story! I do think they could have done something a lot better than this though, to say there are going to be so many people waiting to see the outcome of Not Fade Away. It doesn’t sound like the other characters are inlcuded either, which is stupid, as they don’t need the actors to play them - so why leave them out!??!? All this makes me think they may not want to upset an upcoming movie or something.... Lets hope.
