"There's My Boy..." - an Angel essay. This Smart Pop Books essay is taken from "The Psychology of Joss Whedon".

Very interesting. The essay raises a lot of good points on the nature of Darla and Angel's relationship.
That's an interesting read. Darla and Angel are completely fascinating.
I am an anti-shipper- but damn I love those two together. Such an amazing story.

I still wish IDW had done a Darla/Angel or Fanged Four flashback series before the licence went back to DH.
Agree on the fascination about Darla and Angel. There moments together in Angel were definitely a highlight and really gave life to the show.

I would also love to read an essay that discussed the relationships and group dynamics of Angel/Angelus, Darla, Dru and Spike. As Whedon families go, they are definitely the most dysfunctional!
That was a good read, hats off to the author. I think we could trace it back even further with the Master's love of Darla. We never saw what drew him to her, but you could sense that he was drawn to her. As was Angelus to Dru in a twisted sorta' way. As Spike was to Buffy.

Yep, think you can call it a dysfunctional, but caring family? Damn, mind's racing 100 mph! Stop the world, I wanta' get off!
Angel/Darla got overshadowed by other pairings but their relationship in Angel Seasons 2 & 3 was stunning.

"This child - Angel, it's the one good thing we ever did together. The only good thing... You make sure to tell him that."

Julie Benz and David Boreanaz knocked those scenes out of the park.
