Yes, Paul, I totally agree with you. Priceless moment from the first
*Angel* episode with Wesley: Wesley trying to get his knife out from the
duct tape he's used to attach it to his leg. Hee hee. But I really do like
what the writers have done with making him grow as a character. The
episode where Cordy's pregnant shows his tenderness, and how the three of
them have become a family. It's just neat. :^)

Oh, no, no, no. Well, I agree with the Tasha point--man, did that episode
suck! But Hero was *such* a great episode. I admit, I'd be quite happy if
they hadn't killed Doyle, but the thing is that he died for a reason. He
finally became a hero, which is something he'd sort of been aspiring to,
and if he hadn't died, Angel would have. Or lots of people. And so it was
worth something. 

Willow: Maybe we shouldn't be too couple-y around Buffy.
Cordelia: Oh, you mean 'cause of how the only guy that 
	ever liked her turned into a vicious killer and 
	had to be put down like a dog?
Xander (admiringly): Can she cram complex issues into a 
	nutshell, or what?
