The vampire Angelus, now known as Angel, has a human soul, but committed terrible crimes in the past. Seeking forgiveness and trying to redeem himself, he moves from Sunnydale (and a relationship with Buffy Summers, of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") to Los Angeles, where he helps the downtrodden by thwarting the supernatural creatures that prey on them.

In the DVD extras, production designer Stuart Blatt describes how Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt wanted "a very real feel" to the Hyperion Hotel in the sets. The suite which Angel uses as his own apartment, the "Honeymoon Suite of the Hotel," had many other uses. It was also Cordelia's apartment when she told Connor that they were going to have a baby. It was also Fred's room, for the few times that we see her with Gunn in a bedroom. Because the crew could repaint and move the walls around, that set was the scene when Angel saved baby Connor from a fire; and later, it became Jasmine's suite. Blatt describes Jasmine's as "the mother of all suites ... part Oprah Winfrey, part Liberace, all decorated by Lorne." See more »
A goof seen in archive footage from Angel: City of... that appears in the opening credits of every episode is when Angel is walking down an alley. In a puddle of water you can see his reflection. See more »
What can i say different from any other 'Angel' fan. This was one of the best shows around from 1999-2004. Great acting by David Boreanez (who carried Angel forward) and from the rest of the cast. Excellent story lines telling of Angel's path to redemption; and, flashbacks that reveal to us his former evil life that brought people suffering, torture and death when he did not have a soul. Great development of the Wesley character. Much better than Buffy and worth owning on DVD. There was the occasional bad episode but the many good ones made up for it. Watch it and cherish it.
Catch the re-runs when they come on. It's worth it.
