Angel - Virtual Season Six!

Okay, I am so excited about this that it's hard to type.

I used to watch Angel (season two) on Channel 4, but when it got pulled, I lost interest.I'd always been more of a Buffy fan anyway.But even more than that, I'm a Spike fan.So when I heard that he was gonna be returning from the grave (again!) to star in season five of Angel, well, I just had to get my grubby paws on the dvds.But then of course, all that came to an end too.

What was I going to do without my blondie-bear? And besides missing Spike, I'd realised that Angel was a really great show.So you can imagine my elation when I stumbled upon Angel: No Limits. It's a virtual season six of Angel written by some of the best names in Buffy-verse fanfiction (Mad Poetess, anyone?).

But then, of course, came the doubts. Would it actually be any good? And even if it worked as a fic, would it compare to the show?

Well, my doubts were needless.If you were a fan of the series, you wont believe how close this comes! Plot, pacing, characterisation, dialogue, all spot-on. Even if you weren't a fan, its still damn good fic.

I haven't read all the episodes, due to time-constraints, but rest-assured, the first few are definitely out of this world.Its the closest we're ever gonna get to Angel Investigations again!

It did get really good, I only really saw season two and five, but five was damn good and a complete change of pace.No Limits is so close to the show it could be written by the same people!

Maybe it is...

i think that i will buy the entire series at some point, say during the summer when i would have the time to watch it. i did that with buffy about a year ago, maybe less. watched the entire series. it was brilliant!

I am quite jealous of that, I could do with a Buffy/Angel marathon...

L Word marathons dont tend to last v long, for obvious reasons...

Its great watching them all in one go, only when ou have to time obviously! Go through the entire story. Problem is, it makes the anti-climax of Season 7 that much more prominent!

Grr, yes, it was such an anticlimax! After months of waiting and anticipation, what we got was...crap.
