but - still can't quite figure out how the Dead Kennedys' 'Too Drunk To Fuck' was playing in the car. It's a fun couple of seconds, to be sure, but it seems out of character for Angel to have it in the car, and it's unlikely there are a lot of punk LA radio stations (am I wrong? were there?) playing classic hits of yesteryear right at that time and are we supposed to believe that Spike would have taken time of his busy schedule to shoplift a copy from a local record store? Just a moment that always takes me out of the moment and has me going "huh."
See, now - doesn't the world seem like a better place?
I'm just glad I wasn't in a high-stakes Buffy/Angel strip-trivia game when I made that kind of error.
He himself believes that his two personalities are distinct and separate. It doesn't actually have to be true for it to work in his mind. Do you really think that the Orpheus drug would reveal some objective truth rather than just have his mind play with whatever he already believed?
I don't think that Angel drinking the dead guy's blood was bad for the dead guy, but for Angel himself. I believe they're going for more of an alcoholic metaphor here.
And points off for misspelling 'Alyson'! How can someone (presumably not evil) do that? Makes me wanna cry, it do. :(
I mean; how hard would it have been to just show Anne inviting them in? She didn't know he was dead yet.
That Angel would try and come up with a loophole when he was cursed with a soul (we saw how emotionally tortured he was back then) seems in character to me. That the slayers would just believe whatever they're told to make them less morally conflicted while they're killing the undead seems reasonable as well.
In any situation regarding souls on either show, I ask myself - who you gonna believe? These characters who have a known agenda or your own lyin' eyes?
I also find it very easy to believe that the writers intentionally had fun with this interpretational ambiguity - say one thing and then show the exact opposite, over and over again, without fail. 'Cause it's just more fun that way.
But - how is this guy "leftovers"????? They surely weren't going to keep feeding off him AFTER siring him, were they? I don't think Buffy (or possibly the writers?) actually knows what words mean.
