You were the world's worst vampire. Vampires don't help people you moron, they kill 'em
3 February 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

You were the world's worst vampire. Vampires don't help people you moron, they kill 'em - One of the most funniest episodes of the series, 'Angel' switched bodies with an old guy 'Marcus' who is a heartless bastard that sleeps with any woman he can. It was funny how he tried to win them over by saying - Have I ever told you you are a very beautiful woman?, I liked how differently they all reacted, 'Cordy' thought he was joking, 'Fred' felt flattered and 'Lilah' apparently got turned on, David Boreanaz making out with Stephanie Romanov on a desk is not easy to forget. The funniest moment of the episode has got to be when 'Marcus' thought that he was gay (you know what I mean) and thought that 'Wesley' was his lover, Alexis' face was priceless throughout that scene - two men working side by side. But, you know, none of that funny stuff. Watching this episode also makes me realize how much I loved 'Fred' at first, poor thing had a crush on 'Angel' but he just completely ignored her. I really dig this episode, it's funny and completely different from what this show had done before, plus the entire cast looks great. At the end of the episode 'Willow' calls to say that 'Buffy' is alive again. ANGEL: She's just enthusiastic. Don't read too much into it. CORDELIA: She's got the big puppy love. I mean, who wouldn't? You're handsome, and brave, and heroic,... emotionally stunted, erratic, prone to turning evil and, lets face it, a eunuch. ANGEL: Hey, how can you... I'm not a eunuch! (9.0 out of 10)
