Cordelia: [On the phone in her new apartment] God, Aura. I can't believe I missed your calls! It's that incompetent girl at work. But things are going great. - Well, my new apartment for one thing. Celebrities are practically on top of me. Oh, Steve Paymer, - that's Dave Paymer's brother lives right down the hall. Oh, you'd know him if you saw him. And my view, it's amazing! - Yeah, I have a room mate, but it's cool. I never see him.

Rm w/a vu
31 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Good;

Everything, an emotional roller-coaster for Doyle and Cordy and the introduction of Phantom Dennis. Great performance from Beth Grant, a great actress you can also see in Speed, Six Foot Under, Donnie Darko etc

The Bad;

Bit of a reach that the ghost can do a perfect imitation of Angel's voice, is she the Terminator or something?

Best line:

Cordy (of Angel) "Do you have mousse? Of course you do!"

Jeez, how did they get away with that?

Doyle's hand getting jammed in the drawer, Cordy almost getting hanged, Maude Peirson walling her son up.

Apocalypses: 4

Angel Clichés

Damsel in distress; nope, 2.

Inverting the Hollywood cliché;

In disguise; 1.

DB get's his shirt off; wet, dripping and nearly naked 2

Cordy's tattoo; our first glimpse

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy almost hung, don't think thats counts Cordy: 5 Angel: 4 Wes: 1

Fang gang knocked out: yep, Cordy Cordy: 8 Angel: 7 Wes: 1 Doyle; 1

Kills: Cordy: none this ep. 3 vamps, ? a demon from her time in Sunnydale Angel: 1 demon for Angel. So that gives Angel 8 vamps, 3 demons, 2 humans.

Fang Gang go evil: Cordy: 1 Angel: 1

Alternate Fang Gang: possessed Cordy Cordy: 2 Angel: 3

Characters killed: Dennis and a trio of the flat residents offscreen

14

Total number of Angel Investigations: 3, Angel, Doyle and Cordy

Angel Investigations shot: loads of gunplay but no Angel: 5,

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 1? Angel: 1;Buffy

Kinky dinky:

Maude calls Cordy a tramp and streetwalker, good thing they didn't go through with the storyline of Corrupt huh?

Captain Subtext;

Know the face, different character; 1

Parking garages;

2

Guantanamo bay;

Once again Angel doesn't hesitate to beat his way to the answers

Questions and observations;

Excellent ep with loads of good scenes and some real emotional impact, easily one of the best of season 1. I for one find it heartbreaking that Cordy has only five names in her LA phonebook and 3 are crossed out. Aura, her Sunnydale friend is the girl who finds the corpse in her locker in Welcome to the Hellmouth on Buffy.

Marks out of 10; 8/10
