Here's my first crack at discussion questions, guys! If you have any better ones to suggest, please do so!

Question 1: Why are TPTB so vague in their vision? Is it possible Angel was meant to kill the good guy? If so, why?

Question 2: Is it wrong for Angel to abuse Merl and beat him up like that, or is it okay since Merl is a demon?

Question 3: Is Angel selfishly motivated, if he is only doing acts of good to redeem himself? Deep down is he really just doing it to help himself or do you think, should the chance for redemption be removed, he would still fight with the same conviction? And I mean Angel at this particular point in the series, since most of us know what ends up happening later on in the show.


LOLOL I FEEL LIKE A TEACHER MAKING UP ESSAY QUESTIONS, MAN, I WISH MY TEACHERS WOULD ASSIGN ME ESSAYS ON ANGEL!!!!

HERE'S ONE MORE:

QUESTION 4: WHY DOES CORDELIA NEED TO GO RUSHING IN TO THE GYM WITH ANGEL AND WESLEY? SHE ANSWERS PHONES AND HAS VISIONS, SHE DOES NOT SO MUCH FIGHT. PERHAPS THEY WERE AFRAID A CELL PHONE MIGHT GO OFF IN THE BATTLE AND OH NOES! THEY WOULD NEED HER AROUND TO BRAVELY VANQUISH THE POSSIBILITY OF A MISSED CALL!


LOLOL OKAY GUYS HAVE FUN! WILL POST MY OWN ANSWERS ASAP!
 
 
So I'm going to try to make a poll for each episode, and post them (2 per week) on Thursday. I thought it might be fun, and help to generate more discussion on the episodes. But also don't forget to check the episode posts!

Episode discussion question should be coming too, probably on Thursdays as well.

Okay, now onto the polls!
