"Angel's Great Puppet Caper"

    OK here's something very cool if you're a fan of "Angel" (which I am) with apologies to Ryan R from the Tough Pigs Forum, where I lifted this info from:

    When a popular children’s show begins to steal the life forces of children by hypnotizing them, Angel (David Boreanaz) goes directly to the studio to uncover the evil doings. Upon entering the building, Angel triggers a spell that transforms him into a puppet.

    In a race against time, puppet-Angel and company must find a way to reverse the spell, save the lives of hundreds of children and return Angel to his normal vampire state. Meanwhile, Nina (guest star Jenny Mollen), the werewolf Angel befriended, returns to declare her romantic intentions, but puppet-Angel is too embarrassed to reciprocate.

    Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, J. August Richards, James Marsters, Andy Hallett and Mercedes McNab also star. The episode was written and directed By Ben Edlund.

    *This is the Feb 18th episode of Angel. It airs on the WB in the US, Space in Canada and on the New VR in Southern Ontario.

    we're only half way through the 4th season here, and I used to download, but my internet connetion really isn't that good now. :cry:
    I'm officially not supposed to know, JAmes AMrsters is on "Angel" now, but I can't help reading spoilers :o

    Oeh, there are regularly muppet refferences in "Buffy" and "Angel"

    Like lorne singing:"It's not easy being green"
    and Xander says something a bout kermit and piggy in the episode of the shadowpuppets.

    Anyone know any others?

    Lotsa python refferences too :D

    *does funny voice*

    I'm not sure, but it's more likely they were done by one of the other LA-based shops for budgetary reasons.

    I saw the whole episode. Now that was some good puppetry. I loved the fight sceen w/ Angel and Spike. Now theres some funny stuff they do.

    Spike: Ur a...

    Angel: Don't say it Spike!

    Spike: Ur a a....

    Angel: Don't u say it Spike! Get out of here now!

    Spike: Ur a boodly puppet! *grin on face*

    Angel: *growls and lanches at Spike*

    Now whoever did the puppetry did an awsome job. Loved the part after the fight where he walks and u see his whole body now thats cool. Love it and the others were just funny. Loved the dog character. I just can't get it out of my mind. If anyone didn't see it or missed it and wants a copy I recorded it.

    how sick was them using the half dead creator of the show as a puppet?

    I love Joss. I am so sad they are cancelling that show....

    Yeah, it's a real shame they are cancelling the show - this season started off a little iffy while they settled in to the whole return of Spike & taking over Wolfram & Hart storylines but they've just been knocking out one great episode after another lately. I only really got in to this show this year, when they started airing reruns of seasons 1 - 4 on Space in Canada.

    The puppetry was great - did anyone catch who did it? My favorite moment was when Puppet Angel was wrestling with the lead demon puppet who asks "So you got a little demon in `ya eh?" and Puppet Angel replies "Oh, I got a lotta demon in me" and morphs in to a puppet version of his vampire face.

    The fight scenes were really well done too.

    *jumping up and down nervously*

    I can't beleive I ahve to wait so long.

    In the netherlands they're only halfwya through season 4 and they're waiting a couple of months to show the rest of the season.

    Oh man, I not even close to seeing this episode!

    Ok! That's it, I'm downloading the trailer.

    I'm really spoiler sensative, so I've know for a while about spike not being dead anymore...

    I used to download buffy, but I haven't downloaded angel and now my cobnnection is slow.

    Too bad for you. I downloaded the entire episode in 3 minutes :) . Just put it on dowload and leave it over night and you'll see it in the morning ;-)

    I think there's just eight or nine episodes left in the series now. If this really is the last year it's a real shame. The WB will probably replace it with a lame series like Jake 2.0*

    *With apologies to the five people in America who actually watch that show. :p

    I got some partial info on the puppeteers from a few places on the web and posted it here (look under the Feb 19th entry).

    I forgot about that part. I loved that part too. When he throws him to the play house thing they did a great part on that too. Just love the slow montion on that part.
