Since I’ve enjoyed Firefly so very much, I decided to test out an episode of Angel, one of Joss Whedon’s earlier series. Just by chance, I happened to TiVo the pilot (“City Of“) . I’m not even finished with the episode yet, but I already like it immensely. Angel is dark, emotionally conflicted, repressed, and violent — i.e. just my kind of fictional hero. He’ll fit right in with two of my other favorites: Batman and Wolverine.
Speaking of which, isn’t there a new Batman animated series that’s supposed to start up in August?
