Angel: Season 5

14. Smile Time

Guest Stars:
Jonathan M. Woodward
Jenny Mollen

My Thoughts:
I remember when this one was first about to air. And remember not expecting much from it as it really did sound like a stupid storyline. But it turned out better then I expected it to. It is of course played for laughs... and it did have a few. I especially liked where Puppet Angel and Spike was fighting... Spike couldn't stop laughing long enough to fight. And I also liked that they brought back Nina, the werewolf woman from a previous episode.

My Thoughts:
While an enjoyable enough of an episode I never cared much for the whole Illyria storyline. And this is the starts of that. We also get to see an appearance by Fred's parents again... in a flashback this time.

While the flashbacks were good... this is another one that is no more then an average episode. I think it would have been better if they actually had Buffy in the episode.

My Thoughts:
Starting to get really good again. This is basically the first part of the series finale. The team thinks Angel went bad... but that is what he needed them to think.

My Thoughts:
And this is it... the end of the series. I must admit... I loved the fight between Angel and Hamilton. While it made for a hell of an ending... I so wanted more... so wanted to see what happened next. I always wished for a reunion movie or something to continue the story... but that just wasn't meant to be. But this series definitely ended for a hell of a bang!
