    Follow up on Billy

    I just wrote a long rambling severe critique of the episode that I threw away cause it sounded awful but I quickly wanted to explain what my issue with teaser scene from Billy.

    I have a pet peeve when any tv show uses a two dimensional or purely evil villain character in peril as a cliffhanger. So the Master in classic Doctor Who. Ben in his first dozen or so Lost episodes. Or Riker in Star Trek The next generation.

    Or Lilah in this episode of Angel.

    Feels like lazy writing. The writers are using horrible shocking violence and the fact that Stephanie Romanov is a familiar face to trick us into forgetting that Lilah’s a two dimensional character

    Good points were made in last week’s podcast. Thanks for making me step up an explain myself.

    Thoughts on Offspring

    Um is it just me or did this feel like a 45 minute prologue? And I could buy that Darla was feeling the effects of the offspring’s soul so was compelled to do something viscous at the arcade or was trying to get Angel to kill her but not that she would crave something “pure”. That was nonsense.

    The obvious: Julie Benz great as always. Lovely goofball romance stuff with Angel and Cordy and a typical jerky comment from Wesley about not yelling at Fred considering his role in what she’s been through.

    And wouldn’t a more surprising reveal at the end of the episode be oh I don’t know anyone other than Holtz?

    I’m concerned about the mystical pregnancy trope but this was solid.

    Cordelia’s reaction to the pregnancy felt awkward. The words she said fit with a soap opera pregnancy story but she seemed to forget the whole vampire angle to the whole thing. Surely she’s be more shocked that such a thing was at all possible. And blaming Angel was bizarre because how could he have possibly anticipated this turn of events.

    Her reaction also seemed to be based on the story of Angel’s growing romantic interest in her. Where the pregnancy functions as an obstacle to them hooking up. Whereas she could have been justifiably angry that Angel had sex, risking turning into Angelus.

    When you look back on his decision it really was horrendous because if he’d turned he was condemning his friends to torture and death.

    This episode did also highlight the obvious humour in the idea that Angel, Buffy and Darla have all been brought back from the dead. Throw in Holtz and you get the sense that death is only a mild inconvenience in this world.
