My Thoughts:
At the time of its release I thought of it as the worst of the three. But now I have to say, that it holds up quite well compared to the others. The best part is still the beginning with the Austinpussy parody.
A now familiar face has a small role in it: Hiro from Heroes.

What they say
Maurice Richard had a dream to play in the National Hockey League. Through hardships and hard work, he became a hero. This film is the exraordinary true story of the man they called The Rocket, who led a team to greatness, inspired a generation, gave passion to his country and brought a national sport to the world.

Angel Marathon, a review by DJ Doena


Season 4


Disc 1

Deep Down
Synopsis: Cordelia and Angel have vanished from the face of the Earth, Lorne is in Las Vegas, Wesley has a life of his own now. Three month have passed and Gunn and Fred try to keep the business running and to care for Connor. But they have never given up the search for their friends - neither has Wesley.

My Opinion: I really like the dark Wesley much more than the duffer he was back in "Buffy" and in the beginning of "Angel". That Angel would be found was obvious. At first I thought he would need some time to recover but they've found a nice way to remind us that he has spend a century in a hell dimension between the "Buffy" seasons 2 and 3.

Ground State
Synopsis: To find Cordelia, Angel plans to steal the "Axis of Pythia", a mystical object to find a soul no matter what dimension it is in. Gunn and Fred are of course helping. But there is another player involved who wants the Axis.

My Opinion: She looked like as if she'd belong to Magneto's group rather than Xavier's. ;) I liked it.

The House Always Wins
Synopsis: Angel decides to go to Las Vegas to visit Lorne and to convince him to return to L.A.. Unfortunately Lorne has got an offer he couldn't reject and soon Angel finds himself irresistibly attrected to the slot machines.

My Opinion: Angel is a Blues Brother! He puts the band back together! Only Wesley is missing but I have the feeling that it still may take a while before he comes back. It was an interesting list of people that Angel claimed to have met. And Andy Hallett's (Lorne) singing was gorgeous again.

Slouching Toward Bethlehem
Synopsis: Cordelia is back, but she has amnesia. She has no idea who or what Angel is or who she is. The gang cautiously tries to re-awaken the memories without going like a bull at a gate. Wolfram & Hart also learn of her return.

My Opinion: It was a lose-lose situation. If they would have been upfront I presume she would have run screaming. Let's see what Connor's plans for Cordelia are. I don't trust him and I have the suspicion that he'll do something to hurt Angel. Wesley blew it once again but as I said I like him as an outsider.
