[QUOTE="Out for a walk, post: 1348114, member: 14348"]I agree it is a very solid pilot. I am currently in my annual rewatch. I am doing it different this year and watching Buffy and Angel in order. So, I watched BTVS season 4 Episode 1 first, then this one...etc. Let’s see how this goes.


I think it was a clever way for Doyle to do the introduction to Angel’s backstory to the audience. (Which I wonder how many people actually never watched BTVS before Angel...probably very few).[/QUOTE]

Which do you prefer this or Welcome to the Hellmouth? Its pretty close I think.

I think that I would choose BTVS, just because it is such a classic. But this pilot does a great job of establishing that it is a "different" show from BTVS.

Seeing Cordy living in that poor looking apartment makes me wish that Xander offered her to stay at his parents' place.
