Goofs

Spike is looking down at the "hole in the World" that's the cemetery of demons. He imagines that at the antipodes a New Zealander could have the same view but reversed. But he's in England, and the antipodes of England are in open Pacific Ocean. The antipodes of New Zealand is actually southern Spain. See more »

Not the best episode...
14 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The best part of the episode was when Fred finally kicked the bucket and i didn't have to see her whine anymore. It's not that i dislike Amy Acker, shes great, but the character of Fred is pitiful at best and downright annoying most of the time.

I think i finally put my finger on why i dislike her; shes not really developed, she is more like an idealized version of human. This episode proved that since she doesn't really do anything other than be sick. No, all the male characters go on separate quests to try to save her because shes just so damn special. This episode manages to give Fred very little screen-time and spends most of the episode with all the characters talking about how much they loved her and need to save her. They're doing their very best not to let her do anything strong or heroic, she is just a classic damsel in distress. Of coarse every episode after this all the characters talk about how much they miss Fred. None of the characters ever even talk about Cordelia and Angel actually loved her, Fred's just Wesley's fantasy, Cordelia got to die alone because that's what heroes do.

So ya, if you are a big fan of melodrama and cute damsels in distress then this is the episode for you! Seriously, it's like the exact opposite of the body, total crap. I have to give it a 5 though just for cavemen vs. Astronauts and of coarse my least favorite character being killed off.
