Angel: The Legendary Journeys
16 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is there a reason that this episode closely resembles Hercules' episode 1.10 titled Gladiator?

I looked through the list of people who worked on both episodes and didn't see any overlapping names. I didn't notice it ten years ago, but I recently started watching Herc on netflix and halfway through the episode I began to feel a little deja vu. Which totally makes sense because I saw the episode when I was a teenager, but the longer I watched the more familiar it became.

When the queen requested to see Herc in her bed chamber a light came on in the distance. But, when he asked to go back to his cell A flood of memories came to me. I shouted "Angel", "Lilah", "The Ring!", "Which one's Cordi?" and other unintelligible things. Because, I'm the kind of loser who gets excited over this kinds of things
