A quick update of what the Great Broody One has been up to in LA since the last crossover. In very short, we keep on coming across a certain law firm, we keep on seeing a blonde policewoman, and Cordelia and Doyle are not wholly hitting it off.( In a little more detail, however...Collapse ) *****
Quick summaries - apologies if I missed your favourite bit - do feel free to comment about it below. Angel
, like so many Whedon shows, is a little slow in picking up pace: there are an awful lot of talky-talky scenes in these episodes. Yes, there are important themes, especially about Daddy issues (and Mummy issues). One of my favourite lines from early AtS is here: My parents were great. (Grabs stick, vamps out) Tasted a lot like chicken.
Personally I find Kate uninspiring, partly because I don't really rate Elizabeth Rohm's acting. The W&H stuff is building nicely, but is still mostly background. Cordelia and Doyle are doing a Beatrice and Benedict act which might just lead somewhere but is taking its time. Angel is still using pretty much the same expression for all purposes.
I know many rate the spinoff even higher than the original show, but I would argue it's quite a long way from its stride as yet.
