Why do you say Angel has to be dead? See, I'm actually ok with Angel continuing and exploring their new Post Evil underground secret society universe, or just believing they all died valiantly fighting that dragon. EIther way. As opposed to Buffy, where I'm ok just believing the principal characters just went off and lived their new lives, and I don't really need to know the specifics. The possible exception being that I'd probably be irrationally excited about a movie about Faith. It violates all rationality with everything I said above. But I wouldn't really be thinking about any of that, I'd mostly be just drooling over the sexiness. School girl crushes like the one I have on her are seldom rational.

Yeah, I had several classes with Hilary. He was in fact my advisor. And I have in fact also been to his place for dinner. As far as writing goes, he's the best mentor I've ever had, and in some ways the worst teacher. Hilary doesn't really know how to teach. You must simply be a good enough student to absorb some of his greatness and talent when you bask in his presence.

I had no idea you were a CMU grad. Did you ahve class with Jim Daniels? Jerry Costanza? Gary Waller? Paul Smith? Did you ever have a class cancelled because the head of the department had to drive to the Canadien border because a doctoral student got arrested for trying to smuggle Shakespeare text across the border?

What years were you there anyhow?

never took Jim's class. But I do know him reasonably well. I did take Gerry's class. Don't know Gary Waller or Paul Smith at all. I had many misadventures in the department, that I could go into at anoter time, but not that particular one.

I went to CMU from '92 til '98. Graduated with a BA in Creative Writing and a Double Major in Literary and Cultural Studies and an Art minor.

WORD! I went from 1984-88 and got the Double BA in Professional and Creative Writing with the minor in History.

Gary Waller was the head of the department in the 80's. He put together the whole 'Discursive Practices' program. Paul Smith was an fun professor from England who got stopped at the border from Canada with all the illegal texts.

Hilary Masters had the finest personal library I ever saw, btw.

Holy shit, you're from the pre-Jameel era of CMU!

plus in any big Buffy/Angel event they would want a "significant" death, which would probably mean ANGEL since David Boreanaz has moved on to BONES and such...
[User Picture]From: katieboyd Date: October 7th, 2005 - 07:33 pm (Link)
yeah, but Bones sucks.

Exactly. What was the deal where he killed the terrorist with one shot, firing from a mezzanine level 100 yards from where the guy was? He's biting on Agent Jack Bauer there...
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: October 7th, 2005 - 08:15 pm (Link)
well, there are worse things to aspire to. I can't wait til the next season of 24.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: October 7th, 2005 - 08:12 pm (Link)
haven't seen it... didn't look all that interesting...
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: October 7th, 2005 - 08:11 pm (Link)
yeah... but Willow has a new show as well, and Spike is on Smallville.

Hey, you guys do know that there's a commic book miniseries for Angel right now right? It continues on after the series ended (though not immediately after, and I'm told that how they got out of their, uh, predicament, is never really explained). I don't if this 'counts' as cannon to you or if that matters at all. Just spreading the information.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: October 7th, 2005 - 08:19 pm (Link)
I know there is, but I've never read it. I don't know which characters survived. I tend to not care for comic continuations of movies and tv series. Even when they are officially sanctioned.
[User Picture]From: jameel Date: October 7th, 2005 - 10:25 pm (Link)
It's beyond officially sanctioned. Joss Whedon wrote it. I'll be picking up the TPB in... I think it's coming out in November.
