Goofs

The location used for Gene's university library is clearly a public (community) library, not an academic one. A poster encouraging reading can be seen, for example. See more »

Man, you just get darker and darker. And the weird thing is, your aura? Beige
14 April 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Man, you just get darker and darker. And the weird thing is, your aura? Beige - I actually really enjoy this episode, I think the whole stopping time was interesting and I liked how it was done. The only negative things about this episode were that it was a little slow at times and even though I think it was entertaining, it wasn't the most necessary episode either. Even so, I enjoyed it, it was good to see 'Lorne' working with 'Angel', who was in a pretty crappy mood, I loved the car scene where 'Angel' explains why he fired the crew. Meanwhile the rest of the fang gang is doing pretty well, they have a new agency, even though it's very empty and depressing, 'Virginia' gets them a job, 'Wes' was hilarious, I loved the way he solved the case. I think this episode is well executed and it develops the characters a bit, still I wish that the writers would have continued the Darla/Dru storyline instead. ANGEL: Love,... it's a fire. GENE: You been there? ANGEL: It burns you. Alive. Down to the bone. And then it turns the bone to ash... THE HOST: I, I think what my chipper friend is trying to say here, Gene, is the wheel keeps turning. You can't stop it. Sometimes things get worse, sometimes they get better. GENE: I want the wheel to stop, which probably explains the whole time in a box disaster. I can't emphasize enough how sorry I am about that. THE HOST: It just don't work, Gene-y. It's like a song. Now, I can hold a note for a long time... actually I can hold a note forever. But eventually that's just noise. It's the change we're listening for. The note coming after, and the one after that. That's what makes it music. (8.0 out of 10)
