Angel, “Sense & Sensitivity” (S1E6)

“Sense & Sensitivity” is probably my favorite episode of Angel so far. We start with Cordelia and Doyle complaining that Angel isn’t grateful enough for their help, that he doesn’t ask how their days have gone, and so forth. We quickly … Continue reading

Angel, “Rm w/a Vu” (S1E5)

Hey look, I remembered that this blog exists. In the interests of continuing to write something, anything at all, about TV, I’m going to ignore the fact that I’m typically days, weeks, months, and years behind the rest of you … Continue reading
