This post is written by new contributor Hot Donna. I added the screencaps for fun.



1-8 I Will Remember You
This is my all time favorite episode (as I like to induce crying while watching Buffy and Angel). Buffy comes to L.A. to confront Angel about visiting Sunnydale to watch over her without letting her know he was there. In this tear jerking episode Angel is made human and gets to spend one perfect day with Buffy.


1-14 I’ve Got You Under My Skin
In this creepiliscious episode Angel and the gang must perform an exorcism on a young, twisted boy. Did I mention it’s creepy?



1-16 The Ring
Awesome episode about an underground demon fighting ring. Think cockfighting but with big, pointy demons. For any special effects fan, this is a wonderful display of Joss Whedon’s monster style at its best.



1-18 Five by Five
Faith comes to L.A. to wreak havoc. The demented vixen tries her hand at tempting Angel into a showdown, torturing Wesley in the interim.



1-19 Sanctuary
Angel tries to rehabilitate Faith. However Buffy isn’t buying her “seeking redemption routine”. Crossover wackiness ensues.

You can watch Angel on Netflix here, Hulu here or Amazon (below).

This is another post for The Film Experience’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot series.

First of all I can’t locate the photo I would choose to sum of the flick. For me it would be when she drops the spirit stick. So I suppose one of the adorable, awkward Bradford pics will suffice.

I have an odd history with this movie. When the film was released in 1999 you would have had to make me watch it at gun point. It was a symbol of everything I hated. I.E. the preppy kids who made my life hell. The fact that those same people fawned all over it at school during the first weekend of release just solidified it in my mind.

Probably a year or so later when it was released on Showtime they were having a free preview weekend. Having nothing better to do I thought I’d watch if for a few minutes and then flip it off. The only cast member I knew going in was Kirsten Dunst (whose films I usually enjoyed). In a nutshell she’s a type A cheerleader who teams up with an outsider played by Eliza Dushku. This gives those of us who aren’t in on the cheerleading world a fresh look at it. So I did end up liking the film. It’s cheesy but fun. The most important thing about it to me was the introduction of Jesse Bradford. I still have a killer crush on him. I also loved the spoof of it in one of my favorites, Not Another Teen Movie.

A couple of years later I was hanging out with my niece (as we often did in the summer). She actually invited me to her cheerleading meeting. She never really understood that my valley girl cheerleader impression (perfected as a member of the pep squad in Jr. High, don’t ask) was at her expense so she enjoyed it. I had to choke back the laughs at her meeting. They actually had made and passed out their own spirit sticks. It was too weird and ridiculous. Yes, I did go to a few of her matches & there was skill involved.

Then in 2005 I attended an Angel/Buffy convention. One of the guests was Clare Kramer. I mentioned the spirit stick thing and she seemed amused but not surprised. I think she said something to the effect of a lot of teams doing that. Tres weird.

with Clare Kramer in 2005. She wanted to do the 'Prom Pose'.

So I have owned the DVD for years but haven’t actually watched it in a while. I guess I’m going to have to revisit it to see what I think of it now. Uh, and then watch Swimfan again.
