Trivia

Christian Kane, who was uncredited, says on the Commentary that, in the strip club scene, a few of the extras were big "Angel" fans and had begun to leak Kane's appearance onto the Internet. Joss Whedon had decreed that Lindsey would use the name Sean, so no one knew that Kane would be showing up as "Doyle" - which was clever of Whedon, to fool the fans who would want to mob the sets, but which was a cruel trick to play on Angel, as it turns out later.

Quotes

Spike: What are you gawking at?
Lindsey McDonald: A guy like you, whiling away his time in some cheesy downtown strip dive. Look like somebody who's feeling kinda lost.
Spike: Is that right? Funny, thought I knew exactly where I was.
[Points at the sign over the stage]
Spike: Place called the Peppermint Stick.
[Points at the pole dancer]
Spike: Prima ballerina up there's Sunshine. Though I'm fairly certain that's not her real name.

Maybe The Worst Angel Episode
1 January 2011 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

But Even A Bad TV Episode From Joss Whedon Has Its Good Parts.

Lindsey and Eve continue to plot against Team Angel. Lindsey approaches Spike, telling him that the Powers That Be have selected Spike to be the new Champion now that Angel is working for Wolfram & Hart. Meanwhile, Angel is caught in a series of hallucinations and can't wake up. This Is The Most Unbelievable & At The Risk Of Sounding Like A Three Year Old Stupidest Angel Episode. Now Lets Go Over This Step By Step We All Remember "Destiny" Where It Made Out Some New Stuff About The Shanshu Prophecy & It Starts Off With The Dream That Spike Drank The Cup Of Eternal Torment & We Find Out Lindsey In Reality Is Posing As Doyle...Yup...The Third Episode Ever Made SPIKE MET DOYLE WHILE HE WAS SEARCHING FOR THAT RING! I Will Admit The Complaining To That Woman About How Stupid She Was Is Pretty Funny To Watch "It Almost Made Me Cry" & That Is One Of The Main Reasons As To Why I Give It 3 Instead Of 2.

From Then On It Varies From The Team Finding Out Spike Is The Latest Vigilante & While We Are On That Note Why Were They Surprised That Spike Is Doing Good? He Closed The Bloody Hellmouth For God Sakes & These ###ked Up Even By A Person That Has Seen "Troll"'s Standards...I Am Able To Take Jokes Like Lorne Calling Himself "Honky Tonk" & Angel Being Afraid To Sing But Overall I Really Disliked This Episode.

David Boreanaz Is My Favourite Actor...Not My Favourite Director.
