Trivia

Angel is encouraged to behead Fred in the village center, with Landok telling him, "It is a great honor to swing the crebbil at the Bach-nal." Landok also says, "Strike quickly and true, Angel, then we can eat." The word suggests bacchanal, a revel for the Greco-Roman god Bacchus. Certainly the bacchanalia festivals included eating and drinking. It is typical of Pylea - which is apparently tainted by the Wolf, Ram, and Hart - that the party would start by killing a "cow," as the humans are called. See more »

Goofs

When Angel turns into his demon self and attacks the guard, a close-up shot shows him tear the man's leg off at the knee. Immediately after, in a wide shot (where the other guards ride away), his legs are both clearly intact. Another shot of the body later shows the leg missing. See more »

Do I put out some kind of Com-Shuk-me vibe? You'd tell me, right?
29 September 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Do I put out some kind of Com-Shuk-me vibe? You'd tell me, right? - Definitely my favorite Pylean-episode. Seems like all the best scenes of Pylea were in this one. I loved the introduction of 'Groo', he and 'Cordy' were really cute together. We also got to see Joss Whedon dance as 'Numfar' which was GREAT fun. And 'Angel' met 'Fred', great chemistry between those two. I think I liked 'Fred' the most during the pylean-arc, she was so cute and innocent and crazy. The episode ends with 'Cordy' getting threatened by the evil priests by showing her 'Lorne's bodyless head. Great episode, loved the music. Kinda fairytale-ish. FRED: The portal! She fell through the portal!. ANGEL: Who did?. FRED: That other girl. I couldn't save her. I was arrested. They got her. She's a slave. She'll die! ANGEL: Oh. Cordy. No, she's fine. They made her a princess. FRED: They... Really? Oh. When I got here they... They didn't do that. (10 out of 10)
