“Amends” is essentially Joss Whedon’s version of A Christmas Carol, but set inside the world of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. While the rest of the gang prepares for the Christmas, Angel is forced to deal with past sins. It’s a good spin on an old classic that is bold, fresh, and very good.
Angel’s past comes back to haunt him when he starts seeing the spirits of those he killed while he was Angelus.
Join us tomorrow for a classic holiday episode of Smallville and let us know what you thought of “Amends.”
