I know Joss Whedon is like respectable or something nowadays; but let's be honest Angel is really campy show. Still, I love it and have watched at least 3 or 4 times.
Should I feel guilty or not?
I didn't try watching it until its final season, when it became a host for refugees of Buffy. It was a cute premise (vampire with soul tries to run an evil law firm) but I couldn't really get into it before it was cancelled.
I tried watching the pilot episode with my boyfriend, and it felt like a slow-motion disaster. Vampire moves to LA to become a private eye? Isn't that like all the 80s "private eye with a twist" shows? (He has a talking car! They can only visit crime scenes by boat/helicopter!)
I vote "trash", but not "guilty trash" because you can always defend it by mentioning Whedon.
