Before putting together the long entry about my short trip, here's some news on Angel designed to at least work towards giving some closure to all Angel fans:
E! Online's Kristin says: it's really over for Angel--from the people that know, including James Marsters and Amy Acker. The cast and crew seem quite inspired by the Save Angel campaign, but they are, however, ready to move on. Kudos to Joss Whedon and what turned out to be a wonderful cast (wasn't really sold on Angel at first but when Wolfram & Hart showed up...)
After all, all good things must, in time, come to an end. The world would be perfect otherwise.
