    I remember it too! :)
    I still love Buffy & Angel. In fact I rewatched Angel about a year ago and it worked better when I didn't think of it as the two hour Buffy & Angel show as it was being promoted as in the first season.

    I still cannot make up my mind which show I like better, Buffy or Angel, seems I love them equally. :)

    I know what you mean Christine. I'm the same way. Originally I loved Buffy more. But when I rewatched the shows I enjoyed Angel more and I have a feeling if I re-watch Buffy that might change again! ;)

    Class, the new Doctor Who spin off, feels quite Angel-like, in the way that Torchwood wanted to be, but was so rubbish at.

    Yeah I think so. It's not perfect - it gets a bit convoluted on occasion - but it has an impressively strong sense of what it is and the characters are really good. It's interesting that it's gotten its start on iPlayer - it feels like it was made for a specific audience rather than a specific time slot. It's better than Torchwood in every way which isn't saying much, and in some ways it feels like a natural follow on from the Sarah Jane Adventures, with Katherine Kelly's character as a sort of anti-Sarah Jane.
