    The WB is Officially NOT Renewing Angel after this season. This blows big time... Joss Whedon apparently wants the show to continue and is trying to get another network to pick it up.

    In other news The WB is going to start airing an all new Dark Shadows series. Coincidence?... I think not.

    For those keeping track this is Angel's 5th season.

    Here's hoping UPN picks up the show. BTW, Angel is the WB's 3rd most highly rated show, and ratings this season have been up from last year.

    Entropy, I would guess Smallville beat it out... what's the other one in the top 3?

    Btw, inside sources are saying that talks with UPN aren't going that well... but TNT has expressed an interest. Just keep them fingers crossed.

    I don't know what the top 2 were, but I'm willing to bet that it was one of the teen dramas, probably The Gilmore Girls.

    Yeah, the wife loves Gilmore Girls. I wonder if Smallville is their highest rated?

    Alright. Angel just did a show where he turned into a puppet. That's freakin comedy gold! But then again, I heard Firefly was good and it got the axe before long. Heck, the Tick live action show only lasted 8 eps before getting killed. (I have the DVD, seen it all 3 times, and love it more and more.)

    Spppppppppppoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnn.

    Angel was great last night. If Joss doesn't release an Angel puppet, he's just wrong. I would buy one. Heck, I would probably by several and give them out as gifts.

    As for Firefly, it was very good. I got the DVD for Christmas and have total enjoyed it. It's well worth the money too, because about half of the episodes never aired (or I missed them).

    Never got to see any episodes of The Tick live action series. Someday I hope to remedy that situation.

    You have a point. :) But in his defense, he's very good about loaning things.

    I think so, but I'm not sure. I'll have to look to see if I've still got it or if I gave it back to you. What I ment was that you've got something, you're probably willing to loan it out.

    Angel is a dumb show.

    I did like Buffy, though.

    Angel? Dumb? Are you sure you're watching the right show?

    I've seen a few episodes of Dark Shadows, but it always seemed as if I had missed too much background info to fully enjoy it.

    Angel is awesome... though the entire Vampire with a conscious bit was ripped straight from Dark Shadows... still I don't see a modern Dark Shadows making it for long... where as Angel is on season 5 already... just my take.
