Hey man, just finished watching Angel. You were right, it never reaches the same peak as Buffy although Season Five came fairly close (maybe just because it had Spike in it). Now the only question that remains is whether or not to watch Dollhouse. Have you watched it?
Hey, man. Really good post on the depression thread... I'm sorry you're struggling right now with your schedule and hope that things work out. If you ever want to talk, I can listen - I don't know if that's really all that helpful, but... y'know. Just letting you know you aren't alone.
