On Angel:
Creeeeepy. Ben Edlund (who IMDB assures me is the same guy who wrote the Tick) just kicked major ass on this week's episode, building up the "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" paranoia riff of Jasmine to new heights, and turning Connor into even more of a creep. If he isn't killed off at the end of this season, I'm going to be very disappointed, as they've made him a really good judas and bad guy, but I'm not real willing to welcome him back into the fold, and I don't think the Angel gang should be either. At any rate, some great mood and a little bit of believable coincidence, not to mention some creepy new bad guys, really ups the tension without giving the whole hopeless despair feel that Buffy has had for most of the season. The show really is, if not at its best, than among its best, right now.
