Sense and sensitivity
Very funny to watch the cops acting supersensitive but also affecting to see Kate's father and all his little putdowns of her and her emotive speech is a heartbreaker if there ever was one
Hard to put your finger on it but sometimes this ep feels almost too clever for it's own good
Angel "My parents were great, tasted a lot like chicken" (and as we later learn he's not joking)
Jeez, how did they get away with that?
Nasty the way little Tony keeps calling Kate a bitch
Damsel in distress; yep 3.
Inverting the Hollywood cliche; supersensitive cops rather than the macho LAPD we're used to seeing
In disguise; 2. yep, Herb Saunders from Baltimore again
DB get's his shirt off; 2
We see it when she's breaking into the police station.
Fang Gang in bondage:
Fang gang knocked out:
Cordy: none this ep. 3 vamps, a demon from her time in Sunnydale
Angel: 1 demon for Angel. So that gives Angel 8 vamps, 4 demons, 2 humans. It looks like the thing that attacks Fred in Supersymmetry
Fang Gang go evil:
Alternate Fang Gang: supersensitive Angel
Characters killed: one cop shot although we don't know if he dies?
Total number of Angel Investigations:
3, Angel, Doyle and Cordy
Angel Investigations shot:
Packing heat; unlike the Sunnydale Scoobies Angel Investigations periodically resort to firearms, here Doyle with a shotgun
Notches on Fang Gang bedpost:
Kate wants to picture Angel in his underwear. Kate observes the crush of Doyle on Cordy. One of the cops states that the stress of his job makes it impossible for him to make love to his wife. AI group hug.
Kate's dad comments that its been so long since he's seen her with a guy he suspected she might be gay. Angel is once more referred to as a 'Nancy boy'. Angel calls CC 'precious'.
Know the face, different character; 1
Guantanamo Bay; Kate's interrogation technique leaves a little something to be desired. Angel beats up another of WR&H's lackey. Trevor comments that in his day they didn't need sensitivity as anyone who read Elmore Leonard knows. Cordy's mum calls for her, one of the few references to her family in the series. Angel uses a mobile phone and night vision. Our first sight of WR&H's HQ and Lee. You've got to hand it to the sensitivity coach, he has a point about Kate and co. How lovely does Kate look in her dress? Rather similar to Dawn's in season 5?
Questions and observations;
Could have been great but just lacks that certain something? Nice to have Kate ask Angel for help and be the focus of the ep. First appearance of Lee. We're later told that WR&H 'own' the police but obviously not yet.
