Did You Know?


In the opening moments of the show, Dr. Rabinaw sees that the nurse is working a crossword and says, "Give me one." She suggests, "'In a mellifluous manner.' 7 letters, ends in a 'Y'." It is hardly secret knowledge that the Latin word for honey is "mellis," and "fluens" means "spilling", which suggests that the answer is "sweetly." Perhaps it does suggest something about his character that Dr. Rabinaw gives up and says, "Give me another one." See more »

Spike: What he said, but with a bit more of a threat at the end.

Is pathological idiot an actual condition?
27 March 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Is pathological idiot an actual condition? - Although, don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the first 10 episodes quite a lot, they still felt a little bit too much like BTVS, and even though I love that show, I prefer ANGEL anytime of the week. 'Damage' is the closest thing to the previous seasons, despite the whole slayer storyline. The only thing that keeps me from giving this episode a 'perfect' grade is 'Andrew', they already brought 'Spike' and 'Harmony' from BTVS but do they really need to bring 'Andrew' in as swell? that irritating little virgin? and the worst part were those wannabe-slayers taking 'Dana' at the end, do the writers want to torture us or what!? But besides that, the episode was old-school ANGEL, it was dark and had different layers. 'Dana' played by Navi Rewat gets my 'best one-episode character of the show' award, as the psychotic slayer who was out for revenge. And although 'Spike' always irritates the hell out of me, his best scene of the entire show was his conversation with 'Angel' at the end of the episode The lass thought I killed her family. And I'm supposed to what, complain 'cause hers wasn't one of the hundreds of families I did kill?. The episode also had quite some slightly-disturbing moments, like when 'Dana' sliced the throat of a male-nurse and paints her face with his blood and of course when she cut off 'Spike's arms. ANGEL is a show that is so good when it's disturbing and season 5 hadn't really done that yet, until this episode. SPIKE: The tingling in my forearms tells me she's too far gone to help. She' of us now. She's a monster. ANGEL: She's an innocent victim. SPIKE: So were we... once upon a time. (9.5 out of 10)
