TV Gal Expresses Her Concerns

TV Gal Expresses Her Concerns

By Amy Amatangelo You know how I worry. When one of my beloved shows appears to be struggling, well, I struggle right along with them.

Here are the three shows I’m currently most concerned about:

Angel" (Wednesday, WB, 9 p.m.): I’m getting a ton of e-mail about Spike’s presence on "Angel" (Wednesday, WB, 9 p.m.). There’s a whole contingent out there who would be very happy if Blondie Bear had never come to Los Angeles (they’re "so over Spike" is what they tell me). I still love James Marsters. Still believe he has created one of television’s most memorable and heartbreaking characters. I remain delighted that the end of "Buffy" didn’t end Spike’s journey. Plus. I think the show is doing a good job of balancing his presence on the show with other action. However, I do think the show seriously needs more female characters. I still can’t like Eve. I’m not sure if it’s the way the character is written or the performance (I’m thinking it’s the performance), but she’s no Lilah. Another concern — last week’s episode was basically a retread of the "Something Blue" episode of "Buffy" when everything Willow said came to pass. Angel is also emotionally inconsistent — personally, I’d like a little more brooding over his son and Cordelia (actually, I’d like it if the show had even mentioned Cordelia since the season premiere).

To the TV Gal Reader Belongs the Spoils

Wesley’s father (Roy Dotrice who played Father on "Beauty and the Beast") will arrive on "Angel" to evaluate whether or not Wesley can be admitted back into The Watcher’s Council. Hmmm ... didn’t that blow up last season? Maybe that’s why they’re looking for new members. Juliet Landau reprises her role of Drusilla on Nov. 19. This will be a flashback episode that shows more of the history of Angel, Spike, and Dru. This is also the episode when Spike will take corporeal form again. It seems that the universe is quite upset with having two vampires with a soul roaming around saving the day.
