No current Talk conversations about this book.

This book and I disagreed on some *major* points, and it was tempting at times to just chuck it against the wall and walk away.

That aside, it's a decent episode guide, with fairly in-depth analysis and critique of each episode, and it provided some character analysis I hadn't thought of before, as well as some gossip I'd never heard.

It definitely could have used a better editor and proofreader. There's a ton of typos, a generous sprinkling of missing words, and annoyingly, it often cross-references the wrong episodes, pointing the reader to "Reprise" instead of "Redefinition" at one point, and referencing the Buffy episode "Becoming" instead of the Angel episode "Belonging" at another, just for starters.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

More than two years in the making, this highly enthusiastic yet unofficial guide serves as one of the biggest advocates of the "Angel" series. Written by Lars Pearson ("Wizard" magazine) and Christa Dickson ("Dusted: The Unauthorized Guide to Buffy"), "Redeemed" critiques the entire show in berserk detail, with an eye toward reconciling the features of the "Angel"-verse against themselves, and dissecting the formidable vision of "Angel" producers Joss Whedon, Tim Minear, Jeffrey Bell and their Mutant Enemy colleagues. Among other concerns, this book seeks to answer such vitally important questions as "Why Do Catholic Objects Harm Vampires?," "How Does the Vampire Invitation Rule Work?," "When Did the Powers Intervene Without Anyone Noticing?" and the not-so-obvious "Who is Angel's True Love?"
