    The Bachelor Party

    The Good; a lovely ep for Doyle adding a lot more depth to his character whilst providing some pretty gruesome comedy. Also like Doyle and Angel vetting CC's date, really gives them a sense of family.

    The Bad; SUCH a shame we never see Harry again, that would have been terrific. Does she even know Doyle died?

    Best line:

    Cordy; "Doyle taught 3rd grade. The kind with children. Are you sure he wasn't just held back and that was his cover story?"

    I also like Harry's aghast "Stripper! There was a stripper?"

    Jeez, how did they get away with that?

    Eating brains? Yuck! Would anyone really like Quails' tongues?

    Apocalypses: 4

    Angel Cliches

    Damsel in distress; nope, 2.

    Inverting the Hollywood cliche; friendly demons for the first time

    In disguise; 2.

    DB get's his shirt off; 2

    Cordy's tatto;2

    Cheap Angel; the first sign of Angel's notorious meaness as he refers to the resteraunt's suprisingly expensive windows

    Fang Gang in bondage: Doyle in the box

    Cordy: 5

    Angel: 4

    Wes: 1

    Doyle; 1

    Fang gang knocked out: Angel

    Cordy: 8

    Angel: 8

    Wes: 1

    Doyle; 1


    Cordy: none this ep. 3 vamps, a demon from her time in Sunnydale

    Angel: 2 vamps for Angel. So that gives Angel 10 vamps, 3 demons, 2 humans.

    Doyle; 1 vamp

    What happens to the female vamp at the nest? Does she just run away? Note Cordy actually bites the vamp who attacks her?

    Fang Gang go evil:

    Cordy: 1

    Angel: 1

    Alternate Fang Gang:

    Cordy: 2

    Angel: 4

    Characters killed:


    Total number of Angel Investigations:

    3, Angel, Doyle and Cordy

    Angel Investigations shot:

    Angel: 5,

    Packing Heat

    Doyle; 1

    Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy has a date with Mr Armani but he doesn't even get a kiss

    Cordy: 1?

    Angel: 1;Buffy

    Kinky dinky:

    The stripper. Is she human or demon? Either way she wears WAAAYYYY too much eyeshadow. Also Harry has bought herself a a nightie for her honeymoon small enough to fit into a matchbox. The girls meanwhile play pornographic pictionary. Doyle asks if Buffy likes men with an Irish accent (has she ever met one?). Apparently the demon women have legs that can bend multipile ways and this is an aid in the sack?

    Captain Subtext;

    Doyle and Angel's charm seems to be gradually working on CC.

    Know the face, different character;

    2 Carlos Jacott who plays Richard was Ken in the Buffy ep Anne.

    Parking garages;


    Guantanamo Bay;

    Questions and observations;

    A good episode, fun and fleshing out the characters. Cordy refers to Xander as a fixer-upper. Our first set of friendly demons but not THAT friendly. It seems very much that demons in the Buffyverse are slowly being won over to the ways of humanity (ESPN). Some great heroism from Doyle and a very nice double act from Cordy and Harry. Despite Doyle's relating Angel's lifestory to him in City of Angels it seems he's never actually seen Buffy.

    Marks out of 10; 6/10, good ep
