Angel

Show generally

Question: In the opening credits, just before the shot of Phantom Dennis, is the shot of the girl crying Darla? What episode is that from?

Chosen answer: Nope, it's not Darla - that's Rachel from the episode "In the Dark", the third episode of the show (the one with Spike's magnificent opening monologue).

Question: In the scenes where Angel drinks blood out of a cup or glass, what were the props actually filled with?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: I once used raspberry syrup as blood in a film shoot. I'm sure there are other, more "professional" liquids available as well.

Question: From her incarceration in "Sanctuary" to her break out in "Salvage", how long was Faith in prison, in terms of days, weeks, etc.?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: The exact length of time can't be determined with any precision, but, as each season in the Buffyverse is intended to represent about a year in real time, it seems likely that she was imprisoned for about two and a half years.

Question: Was Doyle written out of the show because of Glenn Quinn's death, or was that a decision made well before?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Quinn didn't die until three years after being written out of the show. According to Joss Whedon, the character, while popular, simply failed to mesh well with the pre-existing characters brought across from the Buffy series, and the reluctant decision was taken to write the character out of the series; it was also mentioned by producer David Fury that Whedon liked the idea of messing with the audience a bit by introducing a main cast member, then defying expectations by killing them off swiftly, although he also mentioned this was not the original intent with Doyle.

Question: How is the vampire no-reflection effect achieved?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: There are severals ways to go about this. They could film the scene without the vampire in place so there's no reflection of him/her in the mirror, then film the scene with the vampire, and finally digitally splice the two together. Or, for quick passes, they could just digitally remove the reflection and replace it with the background. Camera tricks can also be used by putting the camera at a certain angle in relation to the mirror so it only looks like the person's reflection would be visible if they weren't a vampire. Depends on how much time and money they've got available.

Question: I'm about halfway through season 2 on DVD. Without spoiling anything for me, do the gypsies who ensouled Angel ever appear in the flashbacks, or are they only mentioned in passing?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Pretty much in passing although you see descendants of the gypsy clan in season two of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. If you read the first Spike comics with Dracula there's mention of the gypsy clan.

Maria Santos

Question: Is David Boreanaz's last name pronounced the way it's spelled?

Cubs Fan

Chosen answer: Pretty much. It's pronounced Bo-ree-AH-nuz.

Question: I've just got the soundtrack, and there's a great song by a band called Vast, called "Touched". I've definitely heard it in the series somewhere, but have no idea where/when it actually gets played - can anyone help?

Jon Sandys

Chosen answer: This song features in the season one episode "Lonely Hearts", during the montage where Angel and Kate are both looking for the killer.

Question: In the UK at the moment (June 2004) Sky 1 are running a series of ads for their "Best of Angel" vote - does anyone know what that song playing in the background is?

Shay

Chosen answer: "Vampire Love" by Ash from their new album "Meltdown".

Show generally

Question: As I didn't watch all the series of Angel this may have been explained in the show. I thought vampires couldn't have children he told Buffy in and episode that vampires couldn't have children? (it was the episode where angel lost his soul on Buffys birthday?).

Chosen answer: It's precisely because vampires can't have children that everyone is so amazed at Angel's getting Darla pregnant. It's a Big Deal because Connor is so unique in the whole history of the world.

Question: I know Angel killed Darla in season one of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I could have sworn that she was brought back before Wolfram and Hart resurrected her in human form. Did they or am I just remembering flashbacks?

Chosen answer: Though Darla frequently appeared in flashbacks after Angel killed her (around Angel's rebirth, his gang, etc.), she was never raised from the dead until the end of season one of Angel (To Shanshu in LA).

Phoenix

Show generally

Question: How does Angel's son get so old in such a short space of time?

Chosen answer: Connor was kidnapped and taken to another dimension. Time moves differently in different dimensions therefore 16 years in his dimension came and went in a matter of weeks in ours.

Quotes

Cordelia: You want I should distract him? Make with the nice-nice while you slip by?
Angel: Don't be stupid. I'm that guy and the most beautiful woman I've ever seen is making eyes at me? It's either a bachelor party or a scam.
Cordelia: What did you just call me?
Angel: I'm sorry. You're not stupid.
Cordelia: No, after that.

Mistakes

Right after Cordelia has her vision, Wesley goes to the whiteboard. In the "Case" column he writes "N.D.U.O." underneath what looks like "CARYNSS" crossed out. But once they find out that it is a Prio Motu demon and Angel writes it on the whiteboard, "N.D.U.O." disappears even though Angel did not rub it off.

Trivia

In the opening credits there is a shot of a girl standing alone on the corner of a street. This was taken from the Buffy episode "Anne", when Buffy was staying in Los Angeles.
