Angel against Alias. SpoilerTV is having their favorite show contest and you have a very short time to vote. Angel is losing to Alias.

really? i can't believe that, Angel loosing out to Aliasn sure that has to be a misprint!
Angel is at 49%, so there's still a chance! Go vote! :) I can't believe they pitted Buffy against BBT. (but Buffy still won!!!)
J.J. is more popular than Joss. J.J. is popcorn entertainment, Joss is more subversive, niche entertainment. Which is more appealing to the masses?

My take: Angel is way better than Alias. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Alias, especially the first 3 seasons. But after that, while great at times, it got a bit problematic. But they are both great shows with great characters and mythology, Angel was just written better, with deeper characters you feel you knew as well as family. Alias never quite got there for me.


If anyone here has not seen Alias, I recommend the 2 hr pilot. It rocked my world. The first season is really amazing. And personally? I love the Rambaldi mythology. I thought it was crazy good fun. In fact, there was one Rambaldi twist I think should have happened in the Alias finale (I totally saw it coming and it never did), and it's a crying shame that it didnt.
Oh, and Angel has Wesley Wyndam-Price. Enough said.
The reason I voted for Angel is because it had my first vampire love in it...SPIKE.
I love Angel, couldn't get through an episode of Alias. So, yeah.
Sorry, Angel, but Alias was the major influence of my high school years and introduced me to ~fandom~ (although I've totally deleted most of season 5 from my brain)
Never got into Alias - Castle and Angel are my vote.
Well Angel is ahead now (I actually went over to vote because Mirage mentioned Castle... and I always support my Captain!).
Angel 54.59% (839 votes)
Alias 45.41% (698 votes)
Sorry Angel, but Alias is the better show.
Really liked Alias but it wasn't as deep and moving as Angel.
Hmm... Only one of the shows in the entire list is Veronica Mars. The problem obviously being that any favorite TV show contest featuring shows other than Veronica Mars immediately renders itself invalid.

Sherlock lost in the first round!? Do I blame drugs or is there a case to be made by someone who has seen both shows?

Shocker...a JJ Abrams project that lost steam and focus? He should (and probably will) stick to movies.
I love Alias but it doesn't seem to have such a big fan base anymore. At the time it had much better ratings than Buffy and Angel did but now there's rarely any talk about it.
I find Angel to be a clearly better show if only for the fact that it never jumped the shark, which Alias did in S4. There are many other reasons too, but the fact of the matter is Alias stuck around way past the expiration date. The first 3 seasons are a ton of fun, though.
