    So back in the day when Spin the Bottle came out, there was a big discussion in the chatty rooms about whether Lorne’s framing device was in continuity and if so, when it was happening. I think Lorne commenting on the commercial break means it’s out of continuity, but who knows?

    I liked this episode a lot. It’s overly silly in parts, but it’s both funny and effective. On the funny side, I thought all the prop comedy around Wesley’s wrist weapons was hilarious, and on the effective side, I thought it was affirmatively terrifying when Angel really cut loose during the kitchen fight, and his conversation with Connor right after that was great.

    One quibble: Watcher’s Academy doesn’t put a lot of value in secrecy, huh? Wesley spills the beans on the existence of the Watchers, the supernatural, and the Cruciatum pretty much immediately.

    I’m not sure how I feel about Angel-Cordy at this point, but Boreanaz’s acting sold the last scene for me. It’s a dark indictment of capitalism that our system had apparently decided that the best use of Boreanaz’s and Fillion is as quirky hunks in police procedurals.

    Spin the Bottle – One of my favourites from this season. It’s Joss Whedon on crack. Or weed! Wonder where the inspiration for Fred’s high school persona came from! Every genre show does an episode about the characters forgetting who they are and this show using it to make the characters believe they were in high school was pretty neat. Not at all believable that any of them looked like high schoolers but it still worked. I loved how Lorne narrated the episode, even stopping to tell us exactly what we’re thinking. I loved Wes and his “action” comedy with his wrist knives. I loved Cordy been exactly like she was when we first met her character and her scream at Angel that freaked him out. Angel acting like Liam and his reactions to the world he lives in was amusing. It was cool to see what these characters were all like back at a point in their lives we hadn’t seen yet. Though the Watchers Council been treated like a regular boarding school instead of a secret society was disappointing. Plus despite how fun the episode was – aside from Cordy finally admitting to Angel they were in love, I feel like the episode didn’t progress the show anywhere but strangely it does feel like this is the last time I’ll feel like this in the season.
