I found Angel tolerable in its last year because of Spike and the whole Fred/Illyria thing, though Boreanaz/Angel was never other than a wooden bore.
This was my feeling as well. I've never liked Boreanaz in anything, and hubby wanted me to watch Angel with him. With Spike there, I was able to watch the last season and not be too put off.
Did you guys know that Nathan Fillion had actually auditioned for Angel way back in the early days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
? Apparently he didn't even get far enough into the process to meet Whedon, but man, I'd love to have seen his take on the character.
