007: IT ENDED IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT

And so it ended the same way it began for me.

All alone, without much fanfare in the dead of night.

Before you read on, I know some of you havent watched Angel. And for some of you, I'm already threatening to make you watch it.

So for your own good - dont read on. This could spoil EVERYTHING.

Of course I'm referring to Angel - and I promise this'll be the last Angel-related posting for a while. It's just that I've been so utterly seduced by the whole show. The rich characterisation, the offbeat humour.... the way Angel has a complete disregard for women.

And now it's gone, even worse - they're all dead!!

But it was a good death. In fact, if my life were a TV series, and all my friends the co-stars, I'd want it to end that way. Sorry guys - you're all in for a bloody end. In this version, I dunno if I'd wanna take on the dragon.

I liked that the show went out fighting. Many people have 'warned' me about the final episode, sorta saying that it was disappointing. One review I read said "That was the best first half of a series finale I've ever seen"

But to those people I submit that they dont understand the spirit of Angel, the core. And if you have to ask, you'll never understand.

The final moments of Angel embodied what the last five years had truly been about. Being a true hero, without the kudos or fanfare, without the recognition. Going into a situation where death is almost guaranteed, and being content to make those final moments memorable.

I'll miss y'all - some less than others (Connor, Eve). May your adventures take their rightful place on my shelf, next to those of the starship Enterprise, Mulder, Scully & Doggett and the students of Sunnydale.

PS: I'm taller than Spike.

I like his final words.
"I'm taking the dragon" and goes off. :)

I like the dude.

Actually it was
"Let's get to work"

What an awesome final line of dialogue to have! Gave me chills :-)
