The One Where An Old Guy Switches Bodies With Angel...
27 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so good.

In the beginning of this episode, we see a man, having a threesome, getting ready for round three or four, and then he exploding out of his skin. I just have to say, gross, yuck, disgusting, barf, ew. Anyway, we Angel discovers that it's an old man, switching bodies with young men to do all the things young men do and that old men can't, at least not with out help of medication. The old man actually switches bodies with Angel, and when Angel is the old man, no one believes him. They think he's delusional. Eventually, Angel's friends find him when he's the old man, and stop the old man from doing anymore damage. But for some reason, they don't get him arrested, they just leave him there, with his magic body switching device smashed.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
