Angel

I watched the series finale last night and struck me as a rushed season finale. Considering the show’s popularity and the WB’s relative lack of same, I really think the network suits should be ashamed of themselves to let the show die the way they did. My hope is that Joss Whedon left it as such a cliff-hangery show precisely because some other network might pick it up. I said this was my hope, not my expectation. Though such things have happened before. Remember “Taxi” switched networks.

Am I wrong or did the final scene seem perfectly set-up for the calvalry-like arrival of the slayer army?
