We watch each episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the nth time to discuss, argue, and marvel at the fashion. Plus, we try to answer the eternal question, #teamAngel or #teamSpike?
Power Play/Not Fade Away
We made it to the end! We chat all about the final two episodes of Angel, which thankfully was as good as we remember but also shows the strengths and flaws of the series as a whole. Let’s get to work.
Time Bomb/The Girl In Question
What can we say? We are almost finished with Angel and unfortunately, these are the episodes we get for the antepenultimate run. Sigh. We tried to be generous, really, but we’re very over the Buffy of it all.
Lindsay’s back! Connor is back! This week, we talk through some tying up of loose ends and/or revisiting dropped plot lines, depending on how charitable you want to be. Lindsay gets rescued from a suburban hell dimension, Connor’s parents show up looking for help for their super-powered son, and Wesley learns the truth about Angel’s deal with Wolfram & Hart.
A Hole in the World/Shells
It's a tragic double header for Angel this week, as another woman on this show dies to birth a demon. Sigh.
Why We Fight/Smile Time
It’s Smile Time! Yes, we finally got to watch the puppet episode! And it’s still pretty great! But we also watched “Why We Fight” which was less good. We talk about both episodes this week, with a little bit too much about the cuteness of puppets, maybe.
It’s almost an episode of Buffy:The Continuing Story this week when Andrew shows up in LA to bring in a newly discovered Potential, and deliver some unwelcome feedback to Angel and co. on their current status in the fight against evil. And then finally we get to “You’re Welcome” and honestly we’ve got some mixed reactions and post-Season 4 hangups about it.
