[first lines]
Lorne: 'Send In The Clowns' and 'Tears Of A Clown', both in one night. What a treat.
Angel: Yeah, well, I, uh, was sorta going for a, you know, medley kind of a thing.
Lorne: Yeah, yeah. More of a due-dly really, wasn't it?
Angel: I couldn't come up with a third.
Lorne: You know, still, I've never seen you open up like that before. Now tell the truth, you've been practicing, haven't you?
Angel: A little.
Lorne: Probably not in front of the mirror.
Angel: In the shower.

The Good; Not much, this has a good chance of being the worst Angel ep ever. Some eps of Charmed were better than this, even the one's without Shannen Doherty (or Charisma Carpenter).

The Bad; The demon and the whole 'Gunn in trouble' bit is very stupid.

Best line: "NOW!" all in the delivery

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Can't help but wince when Veronica get's a neck full of glass. Cordy's right though, to pull it out would kill her. The whimpering from Angelus and Darla's victims is horrible.

Apocalypses: 4

Angel Clichés Damsel in distress; 16,

In disguise; 4

DB get's his shirt off; yep, twice so that makes 9

Cordy's tattoo;3

Cheap Angel; 4

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy: 5 Angel: 8 Wes: 2

Fang gang knocked out: Cordy: 9 Angel: 11 Wes: 5 Doyle; 1

Kills: Cordy: 2 vamps for Cordy so 5 vamps, 1½ demons Angel; 1 demon and 1 vamp so 17 vamps, 18 and 1/2 demons, 3 humans Doyle; 1 vamp Wes; 1/2 a demon Kate; 3 vamps Faith; 16 vamps, 6 demons, 3 humans. Gunn; one more vamp so 5 in all.

Fang Gang go evil: Cordy: 2 Angel: 2

Alternate Fang Gang: Cordy: 2 Angel: 6

Characters killed: 25

Recurring characters killed; 4;

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

Angel Investigations shot: Angel: 8,

Packing heat; Wes; 2 Doyle; 1 Angel; 1

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

Kinky dinky: All the Darla/Angel stuff is just excellent. Wes uses the very British insult 'Wanker'. Once again Cordy appears to be turned on by money, maybe that 'prostitute' remark wasn't so far of the mark as she also says she could be a 'working girl' if she wanted to. She also states that when it comes to sex women see more levels than men.

Captain Subtext; Semi-naked Angel on top of Wes! Angel objects to wearing 'The girl's helmet'. Wes doesn't help by telling him 'Hop on gorgeous'

Know the face, different character; 2

Parking garages; 4,

Guantanamo Bay; Gunn beats his way to the truth so ruthlessly even Angel steps in to stop him.

Buffy characters on Angel; 11 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla

Questions and observations; Angel is a fan of Denzel Washington which is weird as he claimed to not even have a TV and was living like a tramp during his most successful movies?

Marks out of 10; 3/10, VERY weak ep, saved largely by the Darla/Angel stuff and the motorcycle humour.
