Put Your Hands Together
A story appeared on NPR recently about a rally held at the WB’s production facility in Burbank, California over, you guessed it, the cancelation of Angel. And…mark! That makes exactly one week since I asked for some Angel fans to do something stupid again so I could continue to mock them. You can always rely upon Angel fans.
I didn’t hear the broadcast, but someone on an Angel message board has thoughtfully shared a transcript. I quote from the opening of that transcript, up until the moment when a grin split my face like a fool. You’ll know it when you see it.

“Angel” is a spin-off from another series once on the WB called “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” It stars actor David Boreanaz as Angel, an eighteenth-century vampire with a soul in present-day Los Angeles, who fights supernatural evildoers, all the while tormented by the evil within him.
The show has never been a ratings gangbuster, but in its five seasons it has developed a fiercely loyal cult following of viewers.

A chance to mock Angel fans and people from Tennessee in one fell swoop. Ah, god is good…
