Angel: Good or Evil

I've gotten to the part where Angel lost his soul and I honestly can't decide which Angel I like more, the good one or the evil one.

Obviously, a good-looking guy lurking in the dark being all mysterious is just irresistible, which is why I was attracted to Angel since the first time he appeared. It was quite frustrating how little of Angel we were shown in season 1; I was expecting so much more of him. With all the mysteriousness surrounding his character, I thought we would regularly see him throughout the season, learning a tiny more about him each time. But we didn't get any of those.

And then, just when I thought we were getting a bit more Angel in the middle of season 2, Buffy had to step up her game and slept with Angel, which then made him soulless again. While we're on the subject, "one moment of true happiness" after how long? There's no way the poor thing never got laid. I mean, look at him!

If I'm being honest, I'd probably say that I like Evil Angel more than Good Angel. He just seems more alive now. Well, he's definitely getting a much bigger part in the show now that he's evil. His cockiness and that mischief in his eyes are definitely turn-ons. How could you not love a guy (vampire) who gives a girl a fresh, warm human heart for Valentine's Day? Can't get any more romantic than that, right? Also, I love it when he turns vampire-face and growls. Then again, Good Angel showed a lot more of his brooding skills, which he's honed for 100 years. Why do I find brooding attractive? There must be something wrong with me.
