*Sob* I cried when I saw Connor, I cried when I saw Anne. . . and I sobbed for the entire last half hour.
i started tearing up when Angel gave everyone the day off, and it pretty much snowballed from there.
i certainly wasn't "pissed off" by the finale, contrary to impressions given by Joss and Co. in interviews leading up to last night. i wouldn't have minded a 2-hour ep, but who honestly expects—or even wants—a tidy ending?
Being up here in Canada, one of our Canadian stations carries Angel for us, so we didn't get to see the "from your friends at the WB" message at the end of the show...I was reading about it on another website...can anyone tell me what the whole message was?
Gah, I can't remember.
As near as I can recall through the red haze that clouded my vision as I realized the "all reality TV, all the time (except 7th Heaven, natch)" network was really going there: Scenes from the five seasons with a VO that said "thanks for the memories from your friends at the WB" or somesuch.
i also made sure to keep an eye out for the ME monster, but he didn't do anything more than his usual "grr, arrgh."
I finally watched it last night.
I love Illiryah (or however). "Wesley's dead. I feel grief for him. I can't seem to control it. I want to do more violence."
And Lorne...I felt betrayed since I knew he was the one to walk away, but then I knew why.
