Closing the Hellmouth. With the finale airing in the UK tonight, the Daily Telegraph says farewell to the series.

"The irony of Buffy (beyond the self-referential tone of the show itself) is that its reputation far exceeds its audience figures".

Yep.

Can't wait to see it, deliberately haven't watched 'Chosen' on VCD. Takeaway pizza and a bottle of white wine beckons. And for thos of you in the UK, don't forget Angel ain't on after Buffy instead we're getting what looks like a piss-poor Sky documentary about the show.

"Consider the spin-off show Angel: equal to Buffy in writing, consistency, talent and production value, it lacks resonance because the lead is a brooding hunk instead of a wisecracking, blonde, butt-kicking beauty."

Angel lacks resonance. Really. And because the lead is a brooding hunk. So why have I, who actually like Buffy Season 6, and a friend of mine preferred Angel the past two years to Buffy? Maybe someone can help me out.
Simon, you NEED RED wine with pizza, not white! :)
"So why have I, who actually like Buffy Season 6, and a friend of mine preferred Angel the past two years to Buffy? Maybe someone can help me out."

Because:

1) The Angel fight scenes this season have been top notch
2) Fred has been in the show the last two years
3) The writers have done a great job with Wesley's character over the last two years
4) Faith!
5) The Connor story line & character really worked.

ok. maybe not that last part.

Oh, and pizza bloke, should get yourself a decent Cabernet Sauvignon next time. None of that French crap though. :)
'Chosen' was a very fitting end to the show. And the documentary wasn't that bad either, I think it was the A&E one with a Brit commentator.

And I'm sticking by my choice of Austrialian Chardonnay for last night . If I drank a bottle of red wine last night, I would really be feeling it this morning ;).
