Saving Private Connor
18 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews


The Good; Angel and co play Saving Private Connor during the fall of WR&H

The Bad; Angel seems very out of character with his jealousy for CC and Connor but I guess love makes you do the wacky?

Best line: Angel ; "Now take your new boyfriend and get out!" just beating Gunn's "Thanks for the newsflash Captain Obvious!"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? The Beast slaughtering EVERYONE at WR&H!

Parking garages; 6,

Buffy characters on Angel; 16 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, The Master, Anne, Willow and Harmony

What the fanficcers thought; Read a nice one where Lilah goes to drown her sorrows in a bar after breaking up with Wes and runs into Kate who is leaving LA that night. They get drunk together and end up hooking up

Questions and observations; The shortest teaser ever, Angel basically storms off the roof lashing out at everything on the way down. Wes and Lilah break up and never get back together. Lilah actually shows some pity for Gavin describing him as 'Poor bastard'. Lorne and Gunn's idea that maybe Connor isn't linked to the beast and it's just the mystical hotspot behind Caritas is actually pretty sound, rare that anyone tries to 'Scully' Angel (well maybe Sheryl Crow?). Are the zombies actually a satire of corporate life? Angel says he has a photographic memory as we suspected. Why doesn't Lilah try to put a round in the Beast's eye? Love Lorne's little look at his drink when the AI appear back in the Hyperion foyer.

Marks out of 10; 7/10
