Once upon a time, I started compiling a list in my head of episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer that one could show to an unsuspecting individual and probably hook them instantly. I would try to think of episodes that you don't really need a lot of context for because they either are fairly stand alone or they have such a great punch that context is sorta secondary to the greatness of the episode.

I've been trying to do the same thing with Angel lately and it's not quite so easy. You really really need context for the best episodes in that show. Heck, you really need to watch two and three at a time in some cases to really get the full impact of the show.

This is a tentative list. I don't know for sure on some of these, and there may be some I've missed. But I've been watching so much Angel lately that it's been coming to mind a lot. :-p This could be fodder for a "Best of Angel" marathon party at my place at some point.

List below the cut. )

More Angel

jdotmi: (Default)
Got home yesterday and ordered some pizza and watched some more Angel. Started watching Season 3. I had watched Season 2, then Season 1, now watching 3. I started with 2 because it's my favorite season of the show (except for the last three episodes, which are pretty cringe worthy). Decided to watch Season 1 since I hadn't in a while. Anyrate. Watched "Heartthrob", "That Vision Thing", the last two scenes of "That Old Gang of Mine" (worst. episode. EVER. Seriously. I'd rather watch "She" on continual repeat for four fucking years than sit through that entire episode.), and the last two scenes of "Carpe Noctem" (not as bad as "That Old Gang of Mine", but pretty cringeworthy). Then I watched "Fredless", which is one of my favorite episodes. Then I was too tired to stay concious, so I went to bed. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi woke me briefly when he got home from his sister's place to tell me that we got the new issue of the City of Heroes comic apparently. At least, I think so...

Anyrate. Working now.

I watched most of season 1 of Angel over the last few days. I say "most" because I did skip a few episodes entirely and skipped through a couple others (just to get the high points really). I mean, I don't have anything against "The Bachelor Party", but I've seen it five times already and it's not one of my favorite episodes ever. And I've never been able to watch "Eternity" all the way through, so I figured why start trying now? I watched the last half of it. That was pretty good. Oh, and I can't stand "She", so I skipped it entirely. I've sat through that episode twice, and that was one and a half times too many. I also skipped "I've Got You Under My Skin" but not for the same reasons as the other episodes. I really really like that episode, but I just wasn't in the mood for it.

However, after watching "Five by Five" I read the script, because I could watch that episode on repeat for hours on end and be entertained the entire time. And I did a total geek dance in my chair at the end of "To Shanshu in L.A." because, despite having seen it like a gazillion times, the "surprise" at the end always makes me excited to watch Season 2 again, because it was truly the most incredibly awesome twist to end a season with ever. Yes, I am a total geek. Get over it.

Okay, must work now.

Too much food. Too much Sims 2. Too much Angel.


Scratch that. No such thing as too much Angel.

One of my cats, Daniel, has mouth sores again. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi took him to the vet yesterday and got him checked and got him drugs. He's a happy kitty, just, ya know, getting drugged on a daily basis now. :-p Apparently he'll get these sores periodically for the rest of his life. It's okay, they don't seem to bother him right now and he hasn't bit them and caused them to bleed. Hopefull in about a week this set will be gone and he'll be the old happy purry kitty we know and love. Mind you, he's still happy and purry, just with a huge honking nasty looking sore on the left side of his face.

Work has been interesting this week. New upgrade to our case tracking application went in, which leads to new bugs to find and destroy of course. Nothing that has broken our ability to work, mind you, mostly just cosmetic glitches or typos that need fixed. There are some bizzaro-land occurances with it, but I suspect they'll all be cleaned up within a week or two tops. I'm glad it's Thursday, at least, since tomorrow is my only real day off for the entire week, as usual. :-p

[livejournal.com profile] carebear_flare should (hopefully) be coming over today. [livejournal.com profile] satyr_mi has a game idea he wants to run which sounds interesting. Well, okay, it sounds interesting when it's not 11:30 at night and all I want to do is sleep, but it still sounds interesting. We'll see what happens, though.

Anyrate. Back to work for me.
