Review of chapter "Dr. Angelus" from LFW
Dru should be more annoyed that Xander did not ask her to dance or tea i think.

Review of chapter "Dr. Angelus" from (Current Donor)RngrThorne
It was worth the read for just the last line! Of course, the rest of it was good as well. I would like to see him try to explain all this to Buffy, though.

Review of chapter "Dr. Angelus" from sabellestarte
Oh, this is wonderful! Didn't Dawn play Penny in the movie?
And Angelus and Dr. Claw! Too Funny! Thanks for this. It would be great to see another episode!

Review of chapter "Dr. Angelus" from dulcinea
Great job! What a funny chapter, and so in character with both Xander and Inspector Gadget. I'll look forward to your future chapters. Are you going to have a "This message will explode in..."?

Review of chapter "Dr. Angelus" from ReflectionsOfReality
I suppose that Inspector Gadget lacked in practical intelligence and common sense, probably due to the reconstruction of his body from what ever had happened to necessitate th GADGET augmentation. It is like an operating system pretending to be human using the personality fragments of the original person to form the illusion of a whole. Learning would never really have been the problem but the intuitive translation of what he read or studied to the real world would have been missing so he would be forced to learn things the hard way.

Xander on the other hand is a whole person that has intuition that is almost to level of being psychic, between his natural intelligence and GADGET upgrade he would seem like an upgrade to the original GADGET.

Personally I would love to see what it takes for the systems to add new devices like is it a matter of reconfiguring stuff that is already there or does he need to build stuff from outside parts? What would other cybernetic beings like Ted think when they meet him? Let alone the thought of GADGET vs ADAM would be.

Also Xander really needs to have a talk with the GADGET AI and discuss how he considers it a part of Himself so when he say he built a stake launcher he means both of them...

Eh so much potential,

Review of chapter "Dr. Angelus" from geelazy
I laughed so hard when I read the end of this chapter. This whole story has brought back fond memories of Inspector Gadget and the humor that the show had. Please tell me that Giles will appear in some ridiculous disguise at some point and then be blown up a la Chief Quimby. Maybe Dawn could be the equivalent of Penny?

I don't know if I'll write any more for this, but I'm glad you've enjoyed what's here so far. Perhaps when I'm feeling nostalgic again I'll wind up making a third chapter. Who can say. Ugh, note to self, nevr play five hours straight of any Guitar Hero game ever again, my poor fingers.
As for your suggestions, who can say what my muse may create. When I made the second chapter I had only two stipulations for it in my mind. The first, Inspector Xander needs to take out the Judge differently since he can't just steal a rocket launcher. And second, Angelus has to use Dr. Claw's line from the end of the episode at the end of the chapter.
But thanks for the review, you're the first one to review chapter two, I sure hope you won't be the last. I can't understand why no one else has reviewed yet, maybe they all died laughing. ROFL.
And now off to bed... Ugh, second note to self Guitar Hero is way too adictive and since your left hand is so small don't hold the damn controller so hard next time.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from rothos
You just turned back time for me, wow the Inspector. I remember him from childhood.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed it, I do try my best to write things no one's ever considered before. To that end I hope it will inspire others who have more time on their hands to write a longer story with a similar idea in mind.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from geelazy
Great idea and completely original. I remember watching the cartoon as a kid and absolutely loving it. Hopefully, you'll elongate this and maybe we'll get to see Dr.Claw (not the stupid movie version) as a "big bad". A funny side-note, Michelle Trachtenburg played Penny in the movie - maybe you can find some way to work that into your story as well.

Comments from author:
It's a thought if I can ever further this. Considering this is a Halloween costume inspired deal Dr. Claw may have to be someone else who was in costume at the time, or I could pull a genuine crossover and have Inspector Xander inadvertently step through a portal into Inspector Gadgets' world. Or even just get a spell to go to that dimension in order to learn better control over G.A.D.G.E.T. Possibilities are endless and thanks for the great review, glad you liked it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from VillageOrchid
You're right. I don't think it has been done before. Fun and bizarre.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from feekh
Welcome to the site then. Not bad for a first offering.
I like it. The back story and the added AI. I loved the comics when they first came out although I have to confess to never seeing the movie, much as I adore Mathew Broderick. Might just have to change that now, so that when you write the next installment in your series I can appreciate it properly.
Keep on writing.

Thanks for the review and I'm glad it isn't a total failure as far as Fanfics go. I'll have to keep thinking about how to make this thing into a genuine story perhaps, it could be just too funny for words if I got the writing down par... Although I must confess to being a little leery about writing stories with Spike in them, I'm never sure if I capture the British slang right.
