I was looking forward to getting to In the Dark in my Angel S1 rewatch and it was just as much fun as I remembered. But the moment it started, I couldn't help thinking of the similiarites with KKBB. Mainly because they both start with James Marsters up on a roof giving us a nice little introduction to his character. And of course because he's basically playing the same part in both of them. Old shag (I would say love but that's not really true in either case) of the leading man - the dark, mysterious, older-than-he-looks leading man - with whom he has a love/hate relationship. Meeting the team and chatting up the girls (Cordy/Tosh/Gwen) and the girls falling for it, even if only briefly. And there's torture in ITD while in KKBB Jack's just got back from the year on the Valiant. Both episodes even end with another rooftop scene and a sunset! (Or is it sunrise in KKBB? I can't remember. Same coloured sky, anyway!)

I know it's nothing deep, but it amused me, and I can't help wondering how much of the mirroring in KKBB was deliberate!

Nope, sorry, you've lost me with this one.

Ah well, at least next week's looks more interesting, even if I'm not convinced by Gwen turning on Jack one tiny bit. *g*

Not sure what I think of this one. It's not a bad story, though it feels very reminiscent of Angel's second episode, Lonely Hearts. But it didn't really grab me either. It felt… cold, somehow?

So I'm just going to type up what I wrote down while I was watching it.

This wasn't as bad as I remembered. When I first saw it, I was disappointed because I was expecting – I don't know what I was expecting but it was something more like Doctor Who, not what is basically a variation on the various police/detective serials. I thought it was going to be different.
