Did You Know?


When Angel is thrown into a bookshelf by Connor, the harness that holds Angel up is shown. His coat moves and reveals it. See more »


Connor: She's been down here.
Angel: How old were you when you realized you could track like this?
Connor: I don't know. Five, six. We didn't exactly celebrate birthdays in Quor-Toth. Holtz made up a game so I could practice.
Angel: Oh, you mean he'd hide things for you to find?
Connor: Kinda. He'd tie me to a tree and then run away.
Angel: What?
Connor: You know. So I'd have to escape and then find him. One time it only took me five days.
Angel: Five days. He abandoned you and... Connor, that's terrible. That's...
Connor: Why I'm so good at tracking.

Fred vs The World
31 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews


The Good; All of open mic night is classic but Connor and Angel singing 'Oh Jasmine' to the tune of Mandy is so funny it makes me want to lie on the floor kicking my legs in the air with laughter! Whatever they paid to use the Beach Boys it's well worth it.

The Bad; So Fred just happens to fall down a slope and into a demon's lair who gives her the idea for defeating Jasmine? I guess we could just put this down to the PTBs. Personally I find the demon scenes boring and gross. Why doesn't Fred try to blow Jasmine's head off? The mind control books seem to burn very fast.

Best line; Angel; "Someone has to go and get Connor" Wes; "I'll do it. After all I've kidnapped him before"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Finger food and religious zealots on fire!

Apocalypses: 5

Kinky dinky: The couple who spot Fred at the motel appear to be an amazingly voluptuous hooker and her trick, even Jasmine can't stop the world's oldest profession. Fred kisses Angel. Angel kisses a sleeping CC (aaaawwwwww!).

Captain Subtext; Lorne says that Jasmine 'Walked off the street and came into my ass' then hurriedly explains that's where his heart is.

Know the face, different character; 4

Parking garages; 6,

Guantanamo Bay; Actually Jasmine is correct, Lee Harvey Oswald did act alone when he killed Kennedy. Holtz used to tie Connor to a tree and then Connor would have to free himself and track Holtz down. Talk about tough love!

Buffy characters on Angel; 16 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, The Master, Anne, Willow and Harmony

What the fanficcers thought; Not much, paradise on earth actually pretty boring

Questions and observations; Lovely idea that the woman Gunn and Wes mistake for Fred got her first ever TV job on Angel, I would have pegged her for AA's stand in. The bookseller rather reminds of the character of Denver from season 2 and Hank Azaria. Lorne refers to himself as Judas just as Lilah said Wes was. Love Lorne's baseball bat. Does CC get paid just to come in to work and lie down and go to sleep? When Jasmine's not at the hotel her power over AI seems to fade a little. You wonder if Angel got his CC's blood idea from Buffy and Dawn in 'The Gift'? When CC grabs Angel's hand is Fred telling him the truth about coma patients involuntary movements or just telling him what she need's him to hear? It's a small line in a big show but Angel seems to finally have forgiven Wes over the whole Connor kidnap. Possibly the longest ep of Angel ever at nearly 42 minutes

Marks out of 10; 7/10 I think
