When I'm in a bad mood, I have a few things that I can drag out to make me feel better. There are times I will watch The Women or Auntie Mame, getting lost in two of my favorite movies. If I'm cranky, and in the right mood for something scary, I put The Haunting in the DVD player in, and get lost in Hill House. If I'm not in the mood for a long movie, I may watch an episode or two of Scarecrow & Mrs. King, Angel, Supernatural, or my favorite TV show of all time, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Buffy is one of those shows I will never get tired of, I could watch every single episode 100 times, and I would always go back for more. It was a character driven show in a genre that normally goes for special effects, over character development. I should add that while Buffy and Angel were two different shows, because of the way they were structured, they are one show in my mind.
Wesley was one of those characters that moved from Buffy to Angel, and he was one of the more interesting characters. He started as this pompous know it all, who seemed so out of his element. Nobody liked him, well Cordelia seemed to have a crush on him, but I think that had to do with his accent more than anything else. He grated on everybody's nerves, and just didn't seem to understand why. In his head, he was doing what he knew was right, but his approach was all wrong.
By the time Angel was over, the man he ended up being, had nothing in common with the sniveling little boy he started off as. He was a strong, confident man who was willing to cut corners in order to get the job done. He was the one who was willing to make the hard decisions, even if they were a bit on the darker side. He was the character that embodied the stereotypical definition of masculinity, and he was damn sexy for it.
