Fun Episode
30 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a fun episode! Probably the most comedic episode of Angel so far. I laughed out loud several times. There were just so many great lines or entire scenes.

I think the best part was that this episode managed to balance real character development and comedy, for a total of a really enjoyable episode.

This is a very Wes centred episode, which I think is great. He's come so far since we first met him on Buffy, but I think this is the first episode when he himself really realizes it. He still feels that he's the bumbling, "knocking things over, driving away business" guy. But when he impersonates Angel, he's actually really competent at protecting Virginia. Hopefully this starts the beginning of him really proving it to himself and to Cordelia, proving her statement that he "can't do stuff on his own" thoroughly wrong.

And even though the Shami was a sham, he raised some very true points for Angel to think about. I hope Angel really does do some personal reflection. I'm also glad that somebody finally addressed how silly it seems that a vampire drives a convertible in LA. I never understood how that happened.

While I loved the funny, it felt out of place after the intensity of the last couple episodes with Darla. It also kind of puts a pause on the continuation of that story line. But it's still a worthwhile episode.

But mostly I just want to commend the humour of this episode. From everyone's relief that Angel won't have to sing, Angel's "rockiness" being compared to the Rocky movies, Cordelia pretending to be Angel, (probably my favourite line; "Oh, no, I can't do anything fun tonight. I have to count my past sins, then alphabetize them. Oh, by the way, I'm thinking of snapping on Friday," Wes stumbling to be a vampire including drinking "nummy" blood, to the whole impure/lack of virginity of Virginia conversation, it was just a lot of fun.
