A quick bit of Buffy/Angel lore/eBook advertising…
If you’re just now catching up with Joss Whedon’s late 90s/early 00s work, you might not be aware of how the shows would interact over the course of their runs — specifically thanks to how for two years, they would air on the same night on the WB, and characters and storylines would cross back and forth accordingly between shows.
This is especially important for Buffy Season 4/Angel Season 1 — there are episodes of both shows that won’t make a ton of sense unless you watch them as they originally aired.
It’s something Netflix has stripped from the Buffy/Angel experience, alas, something I tried to rectify with the complete Skip It/Watch It Guides for these shows.
For, when it originally aired, it was some of the best television I’d ever seen, and I hate to think about people missing out on the more meta elements of it. All of these guides were labors of love, but the Buffy/Angel one is especially special to me.
Good ol’ Buffy and Angel. They saved the world. A lot.
