Joss Whedon waxes poetic on

Daniel Radosh

Joss Whedon waxes poetic on the end of Angel. " I regret nothing (except the string of grisley murders in the 80's -- what was THAT all about?) Remember the words of the poet: 'Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the road less traveled by and they CANCELLED MY FRIKKIN' SHOW. I totally shoulda took the road that had all those people on it. Damn.'" (Scroll to 22:31; via Whedonesque)

There's no question that Angel was not as good this season as it was for the last two. But it was good enough, certainly. Last week's WWII episode was superb, and the Cordy swan song worked very nicely too. Still, it's ironic (and not unpredictable) that this season's new beginning was a bid to be more accessible and bring in bigger audiences. If they'd stuck with the original story arc, the show would still be doomed, but at least we'd have had a really kick-ass final season.
