I almost missed it, due to a preemption by the Pacers game Thursday night. I decided to go ahead and stay up for the midnight showing anyways, and was not dissapointed. Spike was comedy gold (like almost always). Good, good stuff.
I thought the ultra-huge Lorne was cheap, and I was kinda disappointed they played the Eve-Angel sexual tension card so quickly, but those minor points aside, this episode RULED! Really, ever since Spike ran through the desk in episode two, this season has been ten kinds of awesome and has no plans for looking back.
Poor Wesley, and his drunken attempts to get with Fred only to find out she likes Knoxy.
Poor Gunn and his bladder.
Poor guy on the toilet who got, uhm, whatever happened to him exactly...
Ben Edlund is a genius. That whole bit with the servant who's blood was the wine was classic. And I'm impressed at how well he's able to write these characters.
Next week looks CRAZY~!!!! (Meltzer actually mentioned that next week's ep involves Lucha in one of his daily updates...) I tell you: this show brings the workrate.
I loved this week's episode. Always been a big Lorne fan. Hulk-y Lorne was cool. And being a person who's totally obsessed/infatuated/whatever you'd call it, with Alyson Hannigan (heh), I enjoyed seeing Gunn piss on Wes' shoes as well as seeing Wes get shut down by Fred. Yeah. lol.
I didn't see the preview for next week's episode but i've heard about it for some time. I wonder if the W&H employee that wears the lucha mask will be involved?
And FYI, I just found out now that several guys from the SoCal Revolution Pro fed will be taking part in this episode including Super Dragon, Mr. Excitement, TARO, Angel (Angel on "Angel" *Gasp*), Juan Travolta, Big E. Biggz, American Wildchild, and Charles Mercury. So that's gonna be awesome for sure.
