'nuff said.

But if you ask me, James Marsters looks like he's had cheekbone implants, and also has a whiff of "pushing-forty-but-trying-to-look-twenty" about him.

Note: I typed this not knowing his real age, which turns out to be FORTY-ONE. Not that there's anything wrong with that . . .

I've never managed to develop much long-term affection for any of the Buffyverse, for some reason. I'll see an episode here or there, and think that it was reasonably well-done television, but then have no real interest in continuing to watch the following week (next day in syndication, whatever). Despite my deep geek roots, I tend to have a knee-jerk aversion to anything that develops too enthusiastic a fan-base. Although admittedly I haven't stopped reading the Harry Potter books yet.

While I'm not a big Spike fan, particularly after the season 5 "I have a soul and talk like a prophetic madman" storyline, I really do love Angel, both the character and the show. Among other things, the show itself conveys a different tone than Buffy did. Much darker, and a better looking lead.

And yes, avoiding the fan base can be a challenge at times. I have a weird tendancy to get involved in things with nutso fans, but I try to avoid becoming one of them. (I'mnot making much sense here). Basically, it's the nice way of saying "I like things like Star Trek, Buffy, and LARP, but I really try to avoid the conventions etc, where I'm likely to be a hypocrite and reject people based solely on the level of their immersion)

I prefer Gunn and Wesley, myself..

Blech...I've always loathed Wesley. Personnally, I loved Cordy until she gotthe bob.

Hehe...I thought they were doing a spin-off involving her....
