When you were killed off on Buffy, did Joss or any of the other creators tell you that you might come back on Angel?

How did they go about setting up Darla's return? Did you have any input on the storyline?

And finally, even though both shows were done by Mutant Enemy, was it different shooting Angel as opposed to Buffy? Was there a different 'energy' on the sets?

Besides Darla, I liked you in Dexter, too. I think I'll have to check out Defiance now. Thanks for doing an AMA!

Why don't we start at square one, for the link adverse among us? I assume "lake oxygen" is the amount of oxygen in a lake. Is that correct, why is it changing, and why should we care?

So his main reason for bringing Darla back on Angel was probably just the prospect of getting to kill her again? :p

Either way I'm glad she got a second chance in the Buffyverse... Angel is easily Whedon's best TV show, and "Dear Boy" is easily one of my top three episodes of Angel. (If it wasn't for "Untouched", it'd be my #1 favorite.)

That's pretty awesome. You should post pics in /r/Angel when you get whatever it is. (Maybe it'll be a pair of horns?!)

Lorne was really cool. I liked the denouement they gave him in "Not Fade Away". He'd tried to go start a career in Las Vegas, but that didn't work out quite the way he'd hoped... so it was nice that he finally got his sendoff.

Wesley was my favorite character (closely followed by Illyria). But Lindsey and Darla was probably my favorite pairing. They had a lot of cool scenes together. I liked how he corrected her when she asked him if he didn't feel anything, specifying that it was "Not in my hand."

The show got a lot more light-hearted the longer it ran, I think. Season 2 was my favorite, 3 wasn't terrible... 4 oh my god, that was just creepy. Even the cool end bit with Jasmine wasn't enough to get over the 'ick' factor, and 5 just felt like treading water.

Joss did the same thing with the final season of Buffy. He knew the show was ending, and still wasted so much time, instead of building a big season-long arc again.

If you get hyopthermia, don't accept treatment as we learned a lot from Nazi experiments.

You said that while losing an argument yesterday. Immediately after saying the exact opposite to start the argument.

You're worse than useless. You're just a sandcastle.
