Angel - Season Two

I have finished season two of Angel.

I really enjoyed the Darla arc in this season. I Really enjoyed all the Angel/Darla moments. I don't care how many times he said he didn't or couldn't love Darla. I still think he did. Why would he do all the things he did for her if he didn't love her?

Also, I LOVE it when we get to see Angel's dark side. That part of the Darla storyline was fantastic! I would watch those episodes again, no problem.

Then they had to go and ruin the Whole thing. Angel went into this repentant/brood mode again and decided that Wesley should be in charge. WHAT!?!?!?

And if putting Wesley in charge wasn't enough we ended up in Lorne's homeland. That whole storyline bored me. It went on so much longer than it needed too. Also, it made me hate Wesley. I'm done with him. Maybe he'll redeem himself for me but it's going to take a lot.

At the moment I prefer Gunn to Wesley and I really didn't think that would ever happen. I am So Sick of this Wesley in charge crap too.

The only redeeming thing that came out of that storyline was Fred. I don't have strong feeling about her either way yet but she's on the almost adorable side of the spectrum.

Then there's Lorne. Umm. I kind of think the whole "you have to sing so I can read you" thing is kind of silly. He's just one more character that isn't doing it for me.

So, to recap. I love Angel, he's awesome, will never not love him but, deferring to Wesley is NOT working for him. I Hate Wesley. Fred is kind of precious. Cordelia, I'm not warming up to her very much either. Gunn is growing on me a bit. Lorne is silly.

I want so much to love this show. I really really do. (Hence, I'm still watching.)
