My ReviewCollapse )

Fantastic Quotage
Lorne: “Well look at you! It’s like Winston Churchill and a young Richard Harris had a beautiful love child!”

Rodger W-P - “Entertainment division? Well, I can see how that would be very useful in the fight against evil,”

BEST LINE EVER:
Spike: "Sex with robots is more common than most people think."

Spike: "Daddy, eh? Always thought Wesley was grown in some sort of greenhouse for dandies."

Angel: "So what happened?"
Spike: "I can explain. Apparently, when Percy here was younger, he used to be known as ‘Head Boy!’"
Angel: "Yeah, I already knew that."
Spike: "Right. I have nothing else to report."

SECOND BEST LINE:
Lorne: "So there I am, covered in cherries, the police are just pounding on the door, and Judy Dench starts screaming, [in high-pitched British accent] ‘Oh that’s way too much to pay for a pair of pants!’"

Spike: "I can get somebody to type out a report on that ‘Head Boy’ thing…"

[lights go out in elevator]
Spike: "I know what this is – You’re not taking me to Hell, Pavayne!"
[Drill lights/alarm go on, Eve gives weird look]
Spike: "Oh, that’s just something I say when, uh, it gets dark."

Wesley: "Tell me father, what is it that galls you so? That I was never as good at the job as you, or that I just might be better?"

Rodger: "Oh yes, this is Los Angeles, we have to talk about our feelings. Then maybe we’ll hug."
Wesley: "It’s doubtful."

Angel: "You know, I killed my actual dad; it was one of the first things I did when I became a vampire…"
Wesley: "I hardly see how that’s the same situation."
Angel: "Yeah I didn’t really think that one through."

THIRD BEST LINE:
Spike: "I don’t know if you know this, but I killed my mum. Actually I’d already killed her and then she tried to shag me so I had to – "
Wesley: "Thank you! I’m very comforted…..Right."

My ReviewCollapse )

Good lines:
Lorne: “Fred! Fred, sweetie…you’re sorta like a woman…”
Fred: “Oh, that’s not a compliment!”

Angel: “Is that blood?”
Gunn: “Yeah, but don’t worry – it’s yours.”

Gunn: “You’ve always had your special powers – now I have mine.”
Spike: Isn’t that ‘special?’ We all have special powers. Anyone wanna trade?”

Spike: “If wishes were horses…”

Spike: “Always was a bit of a Drama Queen.”

Angel: “Hey Wes, did you ever hear that the Devil built a robot?”
Wesley: [in awe] “El Diablo Robotica.” Why?”
Angel: “Nobody ever tells me anything.”

Spike: “Oh, see! Drama Queen.”

Sorry I've been behind...the reviewers are behind, which makes me behind in posting them, and as for my reviews...well, I've just been too tired to coherently formulate my thoughts. Literally. They're all typed up together, they're just...well, "scattered" is an understatement. But I'll make a massive attempt tonight because, hey, I'm sick at home on a Friday night, so what else am I gonna do?

So I'll get started by posting Ron's review for "Life of the Party," which is now up, so check it out here.

Entertainment Geekly’s review of “Life of the Party” is now up. It's okay...I don't agree with the "missteps" the reviewer brings up and the episode "Billy" is definitely NOT a Halloween episode, but aside from that it's fairly well-critiqued.

You know, I've been thinking a lot about Wesley's character. My mom keeps saying she doesn’t like the way his character has developed over the years because he has completely lost his innocence – and I disagree with that opinion, because I think his character has had one of the best arcs on TV. I do agree that he lost a large part of his innocence over the past two seasons, but if you look at how he was while drunk in "Life of the Party" – his old innocent adulation of Fred is still there…he’s still a little boy inside there somewhere. More on this at some other time.

My ReviewCollapse )

Too many quotes in this ep to name, but I'll keep adding more...
Lorne: "Here's the snafu in a nutshell, Top Cat."

Wesley: "Hey. Hey, Gunn. Is something weird going on? [looks down] Charles, you just peed on my shoes!"
Gunn: "I'll be damned. That's weird."

Fred: "Catastrophic sounds not good."

Spike: "You pissed in the big man's chair?? That's fantastic!"

Great news (and I'm not even kidding), Ron's review for Hellbound is out and, can I just say, it completely reminded me that I don't call Ron "my Man" for nothing. First off, he shares both my intense hatred for Eve and my veiled yearning for Lilah to the T. (what the HELL does that expression mean?) And so I'd like to just share with you the best quote EVER relating to that subject:
"Eve isn't fit to polish Lilah Morgan's stilettos. I ask for Merlot and you give me Kool Aid."
Say it again, Ron.

Check out the full review here.

My ReviewCollapse )

A few quotes that I thought were really hilarious...
Spike: “Is this the part when I say ‘Who’s there’ and something creepy happens?” [lights flicker off] “Thought so.”

Angel: "And your hair. What color do they call that, radioactive?"

Gunn: [re:Spike disappearing] “Give him twenty minutes, he’ll be popping up next to you in the bathroom, making cracks about your…" [weird looks from Wesley and Fred] "Am I the only one he does that to?”

Fred: [at the start of the seance] “Should we hold hands?”
Mystic: “Only if you’re lonely.”

--There's also the review from DarkWorlds - obviously not written by an English major, but brings up some really great points and very thorough: http://darkworlds.com/ls/art_11927.html
--And finally, Nan Dibble’s review (because Ron and Entertainment Geekly are still behind): http://www.soulfulspike.com/nanreviews/nanangel_5-4.htm

"'Buffy' dealt with the pressures of high school and college; 'Angel' now addresses the compromises you make when you enter the (evil) corporate world."
- from an otherwise weak article attempting to say that Smallville is the new Buffy (http://atlanta.creativeloafing.com/flicks_watcher.html)
As if that could ever be possible...

Ron's review @ Slayage.com is up and it's pretty good, so check it out:
http://www.slayage.com/reviews/000089.html#000089
Ron asks a lot of good questions regarding the ramifications of the Gang not remembering Connor...like, since he was such a huge part of everything that happened in the past two seasons, what do they remember about their pasts? Does Wesley even know why he has a scar across his throat?! What the hell?!
