Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments: Angel S6

.


With my next film review in the works, let’s take a moment to revisit Angel for a “Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments” entry today. If I can form a coherent thought anyway… we have wintery mix going on and I’m feeling very much like my brain is on half-wattage and I should be wrapped in a comforter on the couch and vegging out to the moving pictures on the tv screen, instead.



In this issue, the Angel crew will basically not be eligible for any rewards or demerits thanks to some crazy-cakery going around caused by Illyria’s hormones. If you’ll remember, she was asking Angel for permission to seduce his son out of left field. This is because the Old One has entered a brief reproductive period and needs to mate and as it happens, her horniness impacts the hormones of everyone else in her vicinity also. So, they’re all acting OOC for this issue.

Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments: Other (Carnage)

.


Best Of / Worst Of… Other. In this case our ‘other’ would be the supernatural ghost tale of “Carnage”. On first blush, I cannot think of any main human characters that are going to get any kudos or demerits [oops, I forgot about the ending]… partially because the ‘haunting’ spends a lot of time very low key and partially because nobody does anything all that heroic or villainous.

But, my intention has always been to do one of these for every review entry on the site and I’ve decided to get this one in the ‘done column’. [And every means The Walking Dead, too but that is going to be a messy affair because of the heavy reliance on flashback storytelling in episodes that come after the event that would normally lead to a demerit for some characters… I’m probably going to put off those entries until the series is completed and I can rely on knowing the whole story.]
