"But we'll miss the ending"
10 September 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

When I found out that there was an Angel episode with Summer Glau in It I searched for it all over the place because it has my favourite actor and actress in the one and only thing they've been in and it's written by my favourite writer HOW COULD I NOT SEE IT!!!!!!!!!! Gunn is absolutely hilarious in this episode when he hates the idea of Angel taking him to a ballet instead of a rock concert which had hurt him so bad Gunn doesn't trust Angel but it was too hilarious that Gunn enjoyed it after all that trust thing The Gunn/Fred/Wesley love triangle sort of sent me in a different direction I was thinking "What? Gunn loves Fred?" the reason of that is Wesley had a crush on Fred for some time of the season and now we're introduced to the "Gunn loves Fred" thing I just could not work that out.

All the actors in this delivered as expected from what I thought A GREAT PERFORMANCE!!! I knew that this episode was good when I looked at three names: 1. Joss Whedon 2. Summer Glau 3. David Boreanaz Those three people made me want to watch it instantly but I couldn't that was a SERIOUS DISAPPOINTMENT. I wanted to see it all of it just then even if I didn't think Of Angel as highly as I do now still I wasn't disappointment.

Anyone hate this episode?... if yes Why? it is definitely the best episode of the season because it delivers some great comedy and it leaves both Angel and Wesley depressed in the end because they didn't tell how they really felt. For Angel it was Cordelia and for Wesley as I mentioned it was Fred.

If anyone is a fan of Boreanaz, Glau Or Whedon I recommend this to you highly (although if your a Summer Glau fan or a Joss Whedon fan I wouldn't recommend this as Highly as Serenity).

Angel didn't get as famous as Buffy but why? Angel is 10x better than Buffy I would like to get my head around that.

Go Watch it if you have access to it.
