Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Impossible.

ETERNITY

The Good; Nice central concept, lovely to see Oliver again and the scenes with him and Rebecca and Angel and Rebecca are also good. Tamara Gorski is very good as she also was in Hercules although her Irish accent is just as bad as DBs.

The Bad; The explanation that the drugs effects are only temporary is stupid, it's not like the 'happy' Buffy gave Angel lasted for weeks (or if it did I'm doing it wrong?) In season 4 when they need to bring Angelus out why not just give him some of this? Why does Angelus cut the phones, who are they going to call?

Best line: Rebecca (after Angel tells her he doesn't kill any more) "There's a support group for everything in this town"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Angel(us)? spraying the blood over Rebecca

Apocalypses: 4 Cordy tells Rebecca that Angel saved the world but he also points out he tried to destroy it

Angel Clichés

Damsel in distress; 15,

Inverting the Hollywood cliché; Angel tries to act casual about saving Rebecca but you can see he's miffed when the papers don't mention him.

In disguise; 3

DB get's his shirt off; yep, after Rebecca spills her drink on it 5

Cordy's tattoo;3

Cheap Angel; 2

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy chains the boss to the bed again Cordy: 5 Angel: 7 Wes: 1

Fang gang knocked out: Wes and Angel(us) Cordy: 8 Angel: 10 Wes: 3 Doyle; 1

Kills: Cordy: 3 vamps, 1½ demons Angel: 11 vamps, 6 and 1/2 demons, 2 humans. Doyle; 1 vamp Wes; 1/2 a demon

Fang Gang go evil: Angel and how! Cordy: 2 Angel: 2

Alternate Fang Gang: Angelus Cordy: 2 Angel: 6

Characters killed: 25

Recurring characters killed; 2;

Total number of Angel Investigations: 3, Angel and Cordy and Wes

Angel Investigations shot: just blanks this week Angel: 7,

Packing heat; Wes; 2 Doyle; 1

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 2 ?+Wilson/Hacksaw Beast Angel: 1;Buffy

Kinky dinky: Cordy calls Rebecca a slut. How long did she know Wilson for before jumping into bed with him and his Hackslaw beast?

Captain Subtext; Cordy says she'd have picketed the studio but lacked 'sensible shoes' (interesting considering the furore surrounding Angel's cancellation). Angel says that Ernest Borgnine is a 'skilled lover'?

Know the face, different character; 2

Parking garages; 4,

Buffy characters on Angel; 6; Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes

Questions and observations; Can't quite imagine Doyle and Angel at an Ibsen play? Wes and Angel seem much more at home. Wes' remark of ET meaning Emma Thompson is SOOO him. Angel thinks Frank Langella is the best Dracula (did he ever meet the real deal? Langella doesn't physically resemble him). Wonder what he'd have made of his Oscar nominated turn in Frost vs Nixon? Angelus says he never killed a famous person which is reassuring.

Marks out of 10; 8/10 good ep, nice character development and a little to say about Hollywood

Stay tuned, hurricane Faith is on her way!
