Buffy the Vampire Slayer: The Prom
aka Angel is a mean, stupid jerk. Hey, I see the need to break up with Buffy. After all, you have to go and star on your own show. What's true love compared to that? But did you have to go and break up with her before the prom? And then just when she seemed to be dealing with it, show up at the prom? The break-up was necessary, if ill-timed. Coming to the prom afterwards was just cruel.
Other prommage: Willow is in heels and she's taller than Oz -- I found that so hot. Where did Jonathan get that smokin' date? D. was in a state of extreme disbelief. I said that perhaps someone was properly appreciating him. And one of the best lines ever:
Anya: "Look I know you find me attractive. I've seen you looking at my breasts."
Xander: "Nothing personal, but when a guy does that, it just means his eyes are open."
The X-Files: Blood
People are drugged by insecticide and then given subliminal messages through electronic devices to make them kill people. This seems unnecessarily complicated and we never really find out what the point might be. Mulder doesn't come on to anyone, not even the policeman who I thought looked kind of like a Ken doll. Most of our time was taken up joking about Ashlyn Gere, an adult film actress who had a role as a paranoid housewife. Mulder had bad, bad hair.
The X-Files: Sleepless
Ah, so very, very lovely. Skinner goes all alpha again, ordering Mulder to go transcribe wiretap tapes. It's not what he says, it's how he says it. And then, of course, while Mulder is "waitin' here like some stupid bimbo who ain't got nothin' better to do with her time than to sit around here waitin' for you", in walks Krycek. Agent Krycek with a bad suit and slicked-back hair and Mulder's destiny written all over him.
Scully is jealous of Krycek. Krycek looks like he's jealous of Scully. Mulder tries to ditch Krycek, but starts to warm to him by the end of the ep. It's so sweet. I watch now and wonder if the reveal that Krycek is working for CSM should have waited for another episode. Let us think for a week, at least, that Mulder had a new partner.
Mulder's hair was still bad. And he didn't come on to Krycek. But he looked like he was thinking about it.
