After the vampires attacked the college room - and Angel catches up with them - there's a fight between several characters. At one point, a vampire gets throw into the door of a car. After he hits the door, at the tail end you can see Angel suddenly pop in out of nowhere from an editing glitch. It's most noticeable when slowing down frame by frame. See more »


[first lines]
Cordelia: I understand people who drink too much. I understand people who put a little note on the parking meter that says it's broken when it's not. I don't understand people who worship demons.
Charles Gunn: Yeah, especially a Lurite demon. The stink on that thing. You're a prince of the underworld, bro, take a Jacuzzi once in a while
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: It's sad. The only way some people can find a purpose in life is by becoming obsessed with demons.

Heavy handed exposition writ large
17 September 2018 | by RogerBorgSee all my reviews

You have to get through this, but you're not going to love it. It's about 1/4th recap of previous seasons of Buffy and Angel, 1/4 foreshadowing of the horrid Holtz arc, 1/4 dull shenanigans with some dull protagonists-of-the-week, and 1/4 outstandingly sloppy action scenes.

It's those that'll stick with you. It's like nobody involved could be bothered with them: choreographers, stunt monkeys; hair and make up, all the way through to the editors. In a couple of shots, ostensibly dusted vamps can be seen still standing around uncertainly. And of course anything featuring Holtz is always high on the cringe scale.

It's a darn curious choice for a season opener, is what it is.
