The WB (ended 2004)
Which correlates nicely to Buffy's hopeful message.
Joss has said that Buffy and Angel had 2 very different messages, Angel's is that the fight is never over, which is why we don't even see the fight (which i loved btw)
I can't decide whether i prefer this finale to Buffy's or not, but they are both brilliant
That's fair. But that is also why I loved the show Angel a million times more than I loved the show Buffy. In many ways it is unfair for me to compare them because they are vastly different shows and it is possible for a person to be a fan of one and not the other, I loved Angel, I barely liked Buffy and that was the reason.

I completely agree that both endings fit their respective shows and shows messages perfectly. As far as which one i liked better of the two then id have to go with Not Fade Away. The main reason being that i liked Angel's show better then Buffy's, although both were and still are up there as two of the best shows produced in TV history IMO.
