Just a couple more thoughts:

-I agree on the theme tune. I don't have any problems with the style or the words- but the music itself is mdeiocre, and I don't like the big holes between each line of the melody. Angel is the theme tune winner of the three series' by streets.

-Although I found Book's immediate confusion and insecurity from being a Shepherd a little bit fast, and rather self-indulgent for Joss the atheist, (a longer spritiual breakdown would have been preferable), Joss delivered one of his finest images since Tara and Willow floating a few inches off the ground- the priest kneeling down and accepting benediction from the prostitute. A beautiful and apt Mutant Enemy subversion

-I love Mal. I think Whedon has invested himself in Mal in the same way that he invested himself in Buffy in later Seasons, and it's fascinating.

-This appears to be the first married couple in Joss' work, (if we ignore Hank and Joyce in a couple of snapshots, and Fred's parents). I'm fascinated to see if he can keep it interesting without the usual need for adultery creeping in.

-I didn't like Nathan Fillion as the tedious and cardboard Caleb, but here he is magnificent.

-Roll on the Minear episode.
