No one born to this earth can choose their own name. They are named by those who love them
4 June 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

No one born to this earth can choose their own name. They are named by those who love them - Ironically, i'm a huge fan of the Jasmine-arc, I think it was very interesting and had some of the greatest moments of the entire show. But that doesn't really count for this episode, it was slow, the dialog really lacked and at the end the only thing I can say about it is that it was rushed and unsatisfying. Not bad by no means, just mediocre. Of course it did have it's good moments, those vampires bowling with a human head cracked me up, and the last 15-minutes or so are also excellent, 'Fred' finally got some decent screen-time. Plus the last scene creeps me out a bit, when 'Jasmine' appears on TV and 'Fred' realizes she has never been so alone. But even with the good, the episode still lacks and ends up being my least favorite of the series. GUNN: What about... Helen? WESLEY: Helen. GUNN: It's got a ring. WESLEY: Yes, it does. However, something along the lines of... Dianthia or Iphigenia. GUNN: Those are some long lines. WESLEY: Or Aristophila, which means... JASMINE: "Supreme lover of mankind." That's lovely. GUNN: Well, Helen was my grandma's name. JASMINE: Helen is beautiful as well. WESLEY: All right. What about... FRED: Clorox. GUNN: "Clorox, she bleaches away the hate." WESLEY: Probably best we avoid brand names. (4.5 out of 10)
