    livid vs angry

    Yesterday I created an educational video just to practice listening comprehension skills and vocabulary consolidation.
    Gloria McDonald, the owner of a dating service, uses the word 'livid' twice.
    Why not angry.
    ESL Video Quiz: What is the first deadly dating sin for men?
    As far as I understand, livid means to be very angry or is there something I am missing?

    Thank you very much indeed.

    No, you are not missing anything. You may feel that the woman's reaction was a little extreme, but she was indeed very angry.
