Trivia

Spike refers to Wesley as "Percy" while poking fun at the fact of him being head boy in school. I believe this to be a Harry Potter reference to Percy Weasly. See more »

Sex with robots is more common than most people think
25 February 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Sex with robots is more common than most people think - A very nice character-driven episode centering around season 5's best character 'Wesley' and his daddy issues. My only complains about this episode are 'Spike' once again proving that he's just a pointless waste of screen time and 'Wesley's dad, even though it wasn't him, it didn't make him a lot less annoying. What did work were those pretty nifty robo-cyborg thingies that wanted to make 'Angel' their pet, I loved the sound of their chains breaking someone's neck. Also, even though I was never a huge 'Wes/Fred' shipper, I admired 'Wesley's love for her and how he didn't even hesitate to shoot the thing he thought was his father when he threatened his girl. Too bad 'Knox' had to ruin the mood when 'Wesley' was going to confess his love for 'Fred' and i'm almost sure she would have returned the love. A very neat 'Wesley' episode that made him realize his dad, no matter how much he isn't fond of him, is still his dad. ANGEL: I killed my actual dad. It was one of the first things I did when I became a vampire. WESLEY: I hardly see how that's the same situation. ANGEL: Yeah. I didn't really think that one through. You should get some rest. WESLEY: So should you. SPIKE: Heard what happened up top, offing your dad and all. Don't know if you know this, but, uh... I killed my mum. Actually, I'd already killed her, and then she tried to shag me, so I had to... WESLEY: Thank you. I'm...very comforted. (8.5 out of 10)
