Tonight, on Angel...

* Spike has a briefcase! With *beer.*
* Twelve minutes in, and it's a damn fine episode. Amazing what knowing you have six episodes to wrap up your show can do for you.
* Ladies and gentlemen, we have Adam Baldwin sign.
* Lorne's scene with the bartender was pretty impressive too, really laying out his character.
* Whoah, the Illyria/Fred dream was freeky.
* I'm a liaison. I liase." -Eve
* Eve isn't bugging me today, always a plus.
* Oh, how I missed Lindsey so. Finding out a little more about his plans, only makes it more so.
* Hee hee, suburban holding dimension.
* And let me note, Gunn is back in his old outfit.
* OMG, THE WORLD OF SHRIMP. I didn't even think that these final episodes are fertile soil for bringing back old running jokes. Whoo, doggy, the mind reels.
* "Um, is Lindsey home?"
* Gunn, you magnificent bastard. Have you been taking angst lessons from Wes?
* Speaking of, while I am digging the Illyria/Wes pity party, I would rather he/they were interacting with the rest of the MoG.
* Also, was Adam Baldwin always this tall?

I'm not sure I will be able to contain myself with the amount of awesomeness these episodes promise to contain, after this first one.

And in conclusion...

"Man, he *is* well-dressed." -Angel

In case you're not still bitter, let me just mention the WB renewed all their dramas. Except Angel.

For whatever reason, tivo decided NOT to even try to tape Angel. Any chance you have it on vhs and could bring it to book club?

Shouldn't be an issue.

Last night's installment only made me more RAGE filled that they cancelled it.

Yes, Adam Baldwin has always been that tall. Since BIRTH.

I was also cheering at shrimp world!

You didn't mention the new credits. Mercedes McNab gets an opening credit now and Amy Acker is more Illyria-ed up. Word was, Mercedes was up for regular cast member status next season, so she gets her credit now. Generous move on Joss' part, I think. Harmony amuses me. She's an extra highlight now that most of the rest of the cast are thorough-going angst puppies. Not that I'm not enjoying the show, I am, very much.

Thanks for remembering that, I forgot to write it down.

Yes, that's how cool I am, I take notes.

"Speaking of, while I am digging the Illyria/Wes pity party, I would rather he/they were interacting with the rest of the MoG."

I couldn't get into the Ill/Wes stuff at all because it was so detached from the rest of the episode. I kept thinking, "this should be really interesting, why isn't it?"

Also, I was extremely disappointed that Wes telling the rest of the crew that he was going to nurture Illyria was handled completely off-screen. A potentially great dramatic thread was snipped in favor of a steaming log of Expository Dialogue squeezed out of Spike's beer-lubed mouth.

This mental image is yours to keep.

Re: ...
Well, they *are* rushing things.

I'm willing to believe Wes just scribbled a note or something.

I like the Illyria/Wes thing, I just wish it was part of the rest of the episode. And at least they mentioned how everyone else still hates Illyria.
