Just saw this on the WB.

Gosh that was good, I didnt like the dismembering of the puppets at the end but I loved that they played it out JUST like all the other fight scenes on Angel even though it had puppets...

Sucks its getting cancelled though *sighs*

I wish they would have told what happened ot the Puppeteer guy though, left me wondering.

thoughts? Comments?

It was a cute episode. My favorite line...

Select to view spoiler:


"What is everybody looking at?" ~Angel
"They're looking at the wee little puppet man." ~Spike


Did anyone else notice that Knox was played by the private...um...shoot...I can't remember his name or even the episode he was in. He was in firefly...I want to say "safe" but I could be wrong. I almost spazed out when I saw him (I just started watching angel so I didn't realize until now he was on the show.)

In closing, how cool is it that Joss wrote and directed the next episode?

That's Johnathon Woodward, and the episode you were thinking of is "The Message". He was on Buffy as well, in "Conversations with Dead People".

Yeah, he was also the vamp buffy talked to. Does anyone else remember Fred calling someone named Tracey? I wonder if that was just a coincidence? since the private was tracey. maybe I'm just looking into it too much. I liked the part

where angel the puppet and the rest of the gang came walking out of the room and angel had the sword. and also when angel and spike faught. high-larious.

No! I’m telling you! The puppets were really the FOX Executives! The part about stealing the soul of the viewers, (it was in the commercial, so not a spoiler) well if you think about the scene you will see it! The total disregard for any of the viewers!! They REALLY ARE out to get us!!

Now, now, this is TOTALLY different. Werewolf Girl's boob exposure was absolutely integral and obviously necessary to the telling of this story.

Just like the lingering shot from behind as she began to slide her low cut pants down her bare, well toned, beautiful back...

ahem.

I must say though that I thoroughly enjoyed this episode! Joss Whedon and Ben Edlund gave us an incredibly good story that balanced 'laugh out loud funny' with 'dark, creepy, scary'. That is not easy to do, and those guys are masters!

And, along with the main story, two very important situations regarding Fred, Wesley and Gunn were addressed.

Select to view spoiler:


Although a possible new romance is being approached for Angel, I'm having trouble buying that. All that curvy skin exposure aside, Werewolf Girl still doesn't seem to have the depth required to really be believably involved with Angel. Just my opinion



That one gripe aside, the episode was fantastic! Mr. Whedon and Mr. Edlund must have been laughing their arses off while writing this gem!

when the Angel puppet turned into a vampire was quite funny, and so was the cotton stuffing that came out when he was wounded. Great stuff. He was still Angel which was a great point of the story and I also enjoyed it when the puppet kicked Spike's ass.

This episode rocks. I used to work with puppets. I was cracking up.

Select to view spoiler:


The whole scene with werewolf girl waking up with fluff in her mouth and the look of sheer horror on her face was wickedly funny. Yes, that's what "I" noticed in the scene.



My friends from Dallas immediately called after it was over and began singing "Self esteem is how we get thing done...." I was roaring with laughter this whole episode.

Aw man, I loved this episode! It was so funny!

Man, when Spike saw Angel the first time, and they fought...and then when Angel grabbed his sword, and the four marched out like they were going to fight some big evil thing...hilarious. "It's time for me to kick your ass all the way back to hell!" But they were puppets? Funny stuff.

As for Fred - that was a bit wierd. I mean, cool for Wes I guess, but I too have a hard time buying it. Maybe things will be made clearer later.

As for werewolf girl - I knew she'd be back! I think it's cool that she and Angel have a thing. It's cool that the series may end with Angel and Wes both romantically involved. Someone said she's not that deep; but I mean, who cares; she's hot.

And you got to see her nekid.

Fred has, arguably, gotten a bit of a clue ever since the ep with Wesley's "father" guest starring. This has been building for a while -- it's not something that popped up out of nowhere.

That said, my God, what a fun episode. Especially "Angel the Vampire Puppet!" I wonder if they'll sell those at conventions like the plushie Cthulus...

So much cool, hilarious stuff going on in this episode, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing at some of the bits. The shrieking death of Big Squeaky, for example... :lol:

All I could think of was, "Well, now I know what *REALLY* happened to Steve from BLUE'S CLUES."

What a hilarious episode. Just awesome. We are almost done with our sweeps cycle and true to form, in slot #3 comes "the funny one". So far we've had:

Sweeps week #1: Return of the past
Sweeps week #2: Retrospective look at the past
Sweeps week #3: The funny one

And true to form looks like the next one's going to be typical Sweeps week #4: Angst-ridden tragedy. Don't'cha just love the comfortable predictability of even some of the finest television?

The funny one's are always my favorites and this is absolutely no exception. I love that they did an evil kids show, too. What a fabulous concept.

Ha! I'm glad I'm not the only perv who noticed the nipple exposure. Can you believe that I had to point it out to my husband? He didn't even notice. Sigh.

I'm even more glad now that Joss did what he did with Cordy. Because he was so willing to dump his formula for that I have no idea what the outcome of next week's ep will be. Could be very interesting.

Well, your first point is in error, sorta. While he didn't the whole chat with Wes, well, listen to it again. It took me time to figure out exactly who or what Wes was on about.

As to your second point, Remember the chat she had with Harmony?

Nah, I gotta stand by what I said. I became a fan after watching season 2 and 3.. every freaking episode was linear.. where the last one ended, the next began.. they talked about shit that if you hadn't been watching the show, you were lost.. I love that kinda special treatment. I just miss it in season 5.. I wanted their NAMES said..

as far as Fred goes.. remember when Wes and Gunn first started talking about her.. it took weeks for them to do anything about it.. that kind of build up is really nice to watch in my opinion and I think this time through it just lacked.. even if she HAD been after Wes for a few eps (which I certainly didn't see it) it wouldn't have been long enough.. she should have to work a hell of alot harder for him dammit Wes is the man, and she shoulda seen it a loooong time ago (yes, I have issues)

Generally someone with a very complicated life doesn't want a complicated relationship, someone that makes you happy and let's you forget about how complicated your life is compliments your life and allows you to deal. She is perfect, something simple that makes him smile and reminds him what he is fighting for. The reason why it didn't work out with Buffy or Cordy is because it was too complicated. After a long day of fighting the forces of evil you don't want to have to fight for your relationship, you want to just have it wash over you and relieve you of your burden for a while, recharge you.......and she's hot.

True, she has the hot thing going for her. In the context of a "Rock Star and Groupie" relationship, then I can see that. They just have to deal with her pesky habit of trying to rip the stuffin' outta him 3 nights a month...

As to why the Buffy and Angel relationship hit a wall... seemed to have a lot to do with Angel's little 'curse' thingie. The "we can never make whoopee" dilemma made for a lot of torture. Then when Angel made the big move from Sunnydale, the final deciding factor was that Buffy deserved to be with a man who "could walk in the Sun" with her, give her children, and be with her fully physical without going pure evil.

If one of the main deciding factors for Angel to part from Buffy is that it is unfair to a young, beautiful mortal woman to be denied the full experience of a relationship, then the same problem exists concerning Nina. Although, maybe a Wolf-Girl is doomed to never have children... only puppies...

As to why it didn't work with Cordelia... well, hell it was Cordelia for chrissake... Just plain wrong on so many levels. That whole involvement seemed like a story arc manufactured to serve the whole Conner convoluted saga. Again, just my opinion.

The choreography for that fight was so good!

I loved how AngelPuppet landed on his feet from the top of the frame, and all you could see were his shoes and pant legs... with the pant break all extra gathered just like regular Angel!

James/Spike did a great job of playing up the fury of the fight when he was really just wrastlin' a disembodied puppet. He was effectively having his ass kicked as the elevator doors closed... gawd that was good.



From what I understand, this was the first time that Ben Edlund directed an episode for Angel. He did a wonderful job. Must be very satisfying to be able to direct one's own very unique story. A story that is so obviously the result of a particular artist's personal style, needs the right follow through with the direction in order for it REALLY work.

This one worked magnificently.

I think one of the greates lines in that ep was during the Spike/PuppetAngel fight. After the elevator doors have closed, Angel spouts something like "You damn limey bastard!". Brilliant statement, lol.

Oh Kala, we would be giving them FAR TOO MUCH credit to actually come up with another show like Buffy... At least one that they didn't promptly run into the ground by fiddling with it's premise umpteen BILLION times or pre-empt out of existence.

Actually, the point I was making is that Buffy was a teen-angst drama. There ain't no two ways about it. Joss has said so himself ten billion times.

We shouldn't be lamenting the addition of another teen angst drama when the spring-board show for this very discussion was just that.

I got no problems Buffy being a teen-angst drama. It was very well done, well written, good acting, fun and not preachy, interesting character development, etc., etc., and I enjoyed watching it. I also like Smallville (when they can focus on stories that aren't AAL) and Joan of Arcadia (even though her parents irritate the heck out of me most of the time).

And I do lament the addition of another teen-angst drama if it's sole purpose is to give TV viewers another SOAP OPERA to watch. If the networks happen to make a good choice and put something worth watching on, then bully for them and yeah! for us. My point was I don't have much faith in the networks.

Ooooo...now I love my prime time operas. I love Monster-operas (Buffy), Lawyer-operas (Angel), Cop-operas (NYPD Blue), Gay-operas (Queer as Folk) and Space-operas (Firefly). The background is irrelevant to me. Just give me good stories about PEOPLE and their interactions with each other and the setting is irrelevant.

I'm patient, though. Joss will have another brilliant show some day, one that defines the decade just as Buffy did. Just remember that when HILL STREET BLUES was cancelled people were crushed and just knew for sure that Steven Bochco would *never* come up with another cop drama that could ever compare to it.

p.s. I'm also holding out for Diane English to another sitcom. When the *&#@^$*$#^%@* is MURPHY BROWN gonna be on dvd anyway?

Remember in"Billy" when Cordelia gave us that beatiful non-cable prime time first of saying, "No,asswipe,I'm here to send you back to hell", about 45 minutes after 7th Heaven,no less?
Anyone else find Angel's words before the final battle amusingly familiar?

I'll be in my bunk.

Don't forget a puppet saying :'ass' and drinking

Hehe

God, I love this episode! I love puppets and just to see a puppet like ep with Angel *___* total bliss.

Ok, the first scene of the ep scared the fua out of me. 2nd the puppets were just plan bad (things they did/say). I don't know why they made Angel's eyebrows that way, but I can only say, just to go with the whole low eyebrow thing.
Oh Oh! The Fred waist hug.

I have mils of those. I love the fighting in this ep.
I kind of which they showed Angel's transformation to puppet more mysterious. Oh well. I don't have much evidence to defend my liking.
