Trivia

When angel is being tortured, spike gets impatient and threatens to "stake me old sire!" angel is not his sire. Drusilla turned him, not angel. Technically angel would be his "grandsire" being that he turned drusilla and drusilla in turn, turned spike. See more »

Angel: I don't know about you, but I had a nice day. You know, except for the bulk of it where I was nearly tortured to death.
Allen Francis Doyle: Hey, you stood up.
Angel: Oh, God. I was this close to telling him everything. I mean, on more hot poker and I was giving him the ring, your mom, everything.

I don't know about you but I had a nice day. You know, except for the bulk of it where I was nearly tortured to death
27 January 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I don't know about you but I had a nice day. You know, except for the bulk of it where I was nearly tortured to death - Believe it or not, this is my least favorite episode of the first season. It's the show's first crossover but the problem is, I simply did not care about the whole 'ring of amarra' storyline but at least I liked the ANGEL episode better than the BtVs one. What mostly hurts this episode for me is 'Spike', I think that I would enjoy his scenes better with the volume off, but even so, his hair would still annoy me. My favorite 'Spike' scene during the episode has to be when his hair caught on fire, too bad it was only his hair though. Another thing that didn't really get to me was 'Marcus', a vampire that tortured 'Angel' through the biggest part of this episode, the torture scenes were pretty irritating, especially thanks to that bleeping Mozart music. But the episode also had plenty to give like the 'Doyle' and 'Cordelia' chemistry was still fabulous, 'Angel' wearing the ring and being able to enjoy the sunlight for a while and of course 'Oz' paying a visit, it's a shame he only got a few scenes because, damn, he fits perfectly with the rest of the cast. Other than that, I find this episode to be quite forgettable, the B storyline about a girl having trouble with her boyfriend doesn't manage to impress me either. Nice ending though, any scene where both 'Angel' and 'Doyle' share a few words is pure gold. Spike: She is cute when she's hurting, isn't she? ANGEL: She's cuter when she's kicking your ass. (6.0 out of 10)
