  • Fred's revenge


    The Good;

    Angel versus the demon and all the Wes and Lilah stuff

    The Bad;

    Surely the Prof can think of a less public way to get rid of Fred? All told this is a pretty damn stupid ep

    Kinky dinky:

    Connor remarks that CC steals the bedcovers much to Angel's distress. Gunn mentions that Fred kept him up all night and was unstoppable.

    Captain Subtext;

    Lorne calls Angel 'sweetie' when he brings him breakfast in bed. Whilst Connor refuses to bring Cordy any pics of Angel he's fine with everyone else, even Lorne.

    Know the face, different character; 4

    Parking garages; yep, if I were Lilah I'd just take a taxi every night


    Buffy characters on Angel; 16

    Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, The Master, Anne, Willow and Harmony

    Questions and observations;

    Really not good, silly plot and although there's some powerful emotional stuff really far below par. First time we ever see CC's parents. Now when we see Angel recreate the conference room scene at the Hyperion is that just a photographic memory or a spell he casts? Love the satire on the Angel fans, Angel referring to the 'chatty rooms'. Love Fred's Ripley moment, "I'm the bitch!".

    Marks out of 10; 6/10 and maybe that's generous
