S1.E10: Parting Gifts

Recommended Posts

The Good; Wonderful reintroduction for Wes and a nice period of mourning for Doyle. Plus Cordy's audition and the Oracles again.

The Bad; Once again, Alexis Denisoff's name is in the titles, ruining the surprise a little

Best line: "Grass stains!" (all in the delivery). Also liked Wes "I bet you always wondered what became of your old pal Wesley?" Angel; "Tell you the truth I never gave it much thought" (The greatest insult in Shakespeare is not Hal telling Falstaff he dislikes him but that he doesn't remember him).

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Barney's plans for Cordy are beyond horrible. But she teaches him not to mess with Queen C

Apocalypses: 4

Angel Clichés Damsel in distress; nope, 2.

In disguise; 3

DB get's his shirt off; 3

Cordy's tattoo; 3 yep she bares that beautiful midriff again

Cheap Angel; 2

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy: 5 Angel: 4 Wes: 1

Fang gang knocked out: yep, Cordy Cordy: 9 Angel: 7 Wes: 1 Doyle; 1

Kills: Cordy: none this ep. 3 vamps, ½ a demon from her time in Sunnydale Angel: 1 demon for Angel. So that gives Angel 8 vamps, 4 demons, 2 humans. Doyle; 1 vamp

Fang Gang go evil: Cordy: 1 Angel: 1

Alternate Fang Gang: Cordy: 2 Angel: 5

Characters killed: 14

Recurring characters killed; 1;

Total number of Angel Investigations: 2, Angel and Cordy

Angel Investigations shot: Angel: 5,

Packing heat; Doyle; 1

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 1? Angel: 1;Buffy

Kinky dinky: Wes in motorbiking leathers which are so tight they 'chafe'. He and Cordy share a second kiss, Cordy is sold as a slave for the first time but by no means the last.

Know the face, different character; 2

Parking garages; 2

Buffy characters appearing in Angel;(unless someone can correct me no original Angel character ever appears on Buffy?) 6; Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes

Questions and observations; Another WR&H lackie but this one doesn't become a recurring character. Angel says that vamps don't sleep in coffins but Dracula does. Angel recognises talent when he sees it, Wes' translation skills alone make him invaluable. Pretty obvious that Barney later inspires the character of Lorne.

Marks out of 10; 7/10
