"The Cautionary Tale of Numero Cinco" (Angel)

This episode was just SO pointless and boring and godawful, it may be the worst episode of the entire Buffyverse (both shows), not just ATS (well besides “Beer Bad” perhaps). It’s not a surprise that such an uncharacteristically bad Angel episode would be found in season 5 either, the worst season. Not only was the plot stupid, irrelevant, and boring, but Angel acted particularly petulant and childish, as he often does in season 5. There’s not much more to say about this epp…it just sucked! :p  It was so stupid and boring that I could barely get through it, and it's definitely the exception to the usual rule (IMO) of even bad ATS epps being better than bad BTVS epps.

I also ended up rewatching some Supernatural season 1 with a different friend today (I've been trying to convert a bunch of friends this summer, lol)--it ended up being quite the epic SN-watching weekend, overall! :p

See, I kind of love this episode because I was half raised in Guatemala, so the cheesy Mexican wrestling thing completely cracks me up. My best friend, who I was watching it with, and I were completely cracking up and our secret handshake is clap clap GRRR.

Lol, well I guess I can see that then! It was cheesy, but not in a funny way for me at least...;) I think you may be the only person I've met though who loves the epp! :p

Are you Hispanic then? Hables español? I've been learning Spanish for years (and have lived in Spain before), so I'm always happy to meet Spanish speakers on LJ, lol--I'm a big dork! :D

I do speak Spanish, but I'm not Hispanic. I'm what they call Chapin, which means that I am white but even though I'm not actually Guatemalan, I still sort of am because I know the culture and the place really well and I've lived there before.

I think with the episode, you need to have the right experience to appreciate it :D
sherrilina: Cordy/Angel (Angel)sherrilina on August 16th, 2010 03:55 am (UTC)
Oh okay, I see what you're saying! :) In any case, I think living in another country and coming to understand and know another culture is awesome...

EDIT: Oh and I see icon twins! :D Sadly I only have space for the one icon...

It's not my fave but it is in my top 5. Good Choice on "Birthday!"

Totally agreed on "Cautionary Tale." Haven't even watched it since it first aired. I really hate "She" though too.

Woot, always happy to meet other fans of "Birthday," top 5 is still great in my book! :D

And while "She" is also pretty terrible, for me it's somewhat salvaged by the awesome and hilarious opening party scene at Cordy's house (esp. Angel and Wes's dancing, lmao!) and its aftermath, the scene of Angel pretending to be an art museum tour guide, and the scene of Angel trying to "mush" the coffee beans with his vampire strength and spilling them all over the floor in time for Wes to slip on them! ;). There are actually some really funny and enjoyable scenes, in other words, that saves this epp from being totally awful and a least favorite epp for me, unlike with TCTONC.

Also nice icon, I like how you incorporate the book cover art! :)

Love the dancing. And Cautionary Tale is still a great deal worse than She! No doubt.

And thanks! :)
