deird1: Angel singing, with text "ceci n'est pas un chanteur" (this is not a singer) (Angel (french singer))
[personal profile] deird1
The fiance and I are slowly making our way through Buffy and Angel - which meant, for once, I was watching Angel with all my attention on the screen, rather than on crochet or work or similar. Which meant that I noticed a continuity error I'd never seen before.

And a rather unexpected one...


Exhibit A:



Note that the cake says "Benji". Which is incorrect, so they have to change it to...

Exhibit B:



Where it says... "Penjy".


Not only have the worried coworkers managed to quickly transform the "B" into a "P", but the cake, wanting to be helpful, has kindly transformed the "i" into a "y"! Wow!


If you look carefully, you'll notice that the flowers have also changed colour. Which means that the production department either
a) hired a cake maker to produce two identical cakes, one with "Benji" and one with "Benjy", and then smudged the "B" on the second one to fit the smudging in the script,
or
b) instilled the cake with morphing powers, using magic.

I prefer option b, to be honest...

I think maybe the cake represents Spike's sire...

Heh heh. What episode is this from? It seems dimly familiar but I can't place it.

Oh yeah! I remember now. I might have only seen that episode once despite having gone through the show nearly 3 times...

Are you two watching BtVS & Angel in airdate order? I always thought that'd be fun. Though once they diverge completely in early AtS S3 it'd be less appealing I think.

Yeah, seems simpler than checking airdates!

So basically, the crew found out that there'd be cake on set, and went on strike until the producers made a second cake so there'd be enough for everyone?
