Welcome to another week in another month with another “Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments” post. But before we get to that, the next moving-picture review is a movie. I’d picked it because it was short and sweet and I figured I could whip it out over the weekend… but obvs, it isn’t here for your wandering eyeballs to gaze upon. That’s because the movie, despite an average-ish score on IMDB isn’t really holding my interest. I know! Way to market my next review! You’re all undoubtedly excited to revisit my page to check out its wonders. And really, who could blame you when I’m clearly such a salesman? Anyway, that movie will be “Daughter of the Tong” from the less than screaming ’50 Night Screams’ collection from my frenemy, MILL CREEK.
But today, we’re all about character moments and issuing rewards for good moments or demerits for awful behavior. Our subject is Angel: Aftermath, a.k.a. Angel Season 6 with issue 18.
Our main characters of interest this round are: Angel, Kate Lockley, and Connor.
Our Characters Are Great!
Angel- Angel doesn’t do anything to distinguish himself as he tries to find a direction forward now that he’s literally saved an entire city from Hell. This doesn’t lead to a kudo.
Kate- I’m willing to give Kate a Half-KUDO for really taking charge of getting Angel back into the swing of things with Angel Investigations, redux. And she’s far better equipped these days for the monster fighting than when she left Angel the Series.
Connor- Connor isn’t getting a kudo in this issue, but I am glad that he’s agreed to help out his father at least part time.
I’m not issuing any special kudos this issue, but I’m reserving the right to offer maybe a half to the Councilmembers after we find out more about them.
Our Characters Are UH, NOT GREAT!
Angel- Some of Angel’s attitude throughout the issue was a bit bothersome, but there isn’t anything to issue a demerit over.
Kate- Like with Angel, I found some of Kate’s attitude a bit irksome… mostly involved in the whiff of desperation she was giving off in joining Angel’s mission. But it’s not something to earn a demerit over.
Connor- I’ve no problems with Connor in this issue and won’t issue a punishing mark against him.
I’m not going to issue any special demerits, though some of the people are skirting close to it. I also don’t trust the Councilmembers yet, so they may earn a demerit at some point after we know more.
