How can you love an umpire? Everyone hates them!
— Xander Harris

This week the blood runs hot as the Buffy Boys watch S01E07 "Angel", the episode that launched a thousand 'ships. That last scene? With the crucifix? Be still our unbeating hearts.


Key Buffy Bits from this episode include:


  • The joint metaphor of 'vampires' and 'slayers' as different aspects of the minority experience

  • Cock-a-rooshes!

  • Catholic schoolgirls dual wielding handguns

  • Angel's reconstructed male heterosexuality and the morality of choosing to be better

  • A meditation on Angel's Irish heritage

  • "Hi honey, you're in grave danger, see you next month"
