When talking about the Aliens series, a character says, "He's always had a thing for those 'Aliens' movies. Except for that last one they made - I think he dozed off." Series creator Joss Whedon wrote the script for Alien: Resurrection (1997), although it was heavily rewritten. See more »

Wesley: You wouldn't dare. You were just gonna toss in a Prothgarian broadsword with a third century ceremonial Sancteus dagger?
Cordelia: Hmm... Let's see... Long, metal, pointy. Yep.

Fred has arrived
23 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was so happy to see an episode revolving around Fred. Up till then every character had at least one episode where they were the focus. It was only fair that they do the same for the newest member of Team Angel. I liked her as the new addition because she was so sweet and adorable. That Southern charm combined with the nerdy but cute science girl made for a great role. I'm also a bit of a math nerd from way back and think that's kinda cute. What was great was how the plot developed with Fred's parents and the team. Fred seeing her normal, down home Southern parents in Wesley's office and freaking out. The team trying to hide what they normally do while the Burkles are suspicious of them and vice versa. Fred breaking down in the bus station and saying she didn't want to see her parents because it would confirm that her time in Pylea actually was real. Fred's mom mowing down the Durslar with a bus and the Burkles being so open-minded when they find out what Team Angel actually does.

Two other things. Wes & Cordy doing that little Angel & Buffy spoof was pretty funny. And G-d almighty, did Cordy look hot in that mini-skirt.
