You're a lot smarter than you look. Of course, you look like a retard
3 February 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

You're a lot smarter than you look. Of course, you look like a retard - The average fan of the show consider this to be one of the weakest episodes of the series, and I can see why, but still, it has to be one of my most re-watched episodes, I wouldn't be surprised if i've seen it more than 20 times. The thing that fans usually complain about is the floating eyeball, sure, it's impossible but this whole show is fiction so why would a floating eyeball be much more impossible than tall dark and handsome brooding vampire who helps the helpless for example? I really dig the idea of a doctor who can reattach his limbs, quite creepy, especially when his hands went under 'Melissa's covers - At least it was just his hands down there. I wish I hadn't even thought that. What mostly worked for me was the great dialog, the countless of memorable lines, and the constantly great chemistry between 'Angel', 'Cordelia' and 'Doyle'. I also love the teaser where 'Doyle' admits that he finds 'Angel' at least a little attractive. The episode also has a more serious storyline, stalking and how much it can affect the victim, I bet that stalked women or men feel exactly like 'Melissa' did, like they are constantly watched and like they can't control their lives anymore. I also embraced 'Kate's second appearance (Elisabeth Rohm is gorgeous). I find the episode to be an excellent horror episode, I really enjoy it both horror-wise and comedy-wise. It's truly under-appreciated. CORDELIA: What is stalking nowadays, like the third most popular sport among men? ANGEL: Fourth, after luge.(9.0 out of 10)
