A Gothic and Dark Story of a Vampire With a Soul is Great
26 October 2003 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The story of Angel (David Boreanaz) is a great television show. My wife is a great fan of this series and I decided to buy the imported DVD box of the first season as a gift for her. I watched the first episode, than the second one, the next one... and yesterday I finalized! The plot is based in Angel, a private investigator, living in the present days, who fights against demons, fiends and vampires in Los Angeles. The details is that he is also a vampire, but with a soul. Through flash backs, the viewer sees that some two hundred years ago, Angelous was a common guy seduced by Darla (Julie Benz), and became a vampire after being bitten by her. He killed his father, his mother and his sister. One day, he had a beautiful gypsy girl as a gift from Darla. He killed the girl, and he got a curse from her gypsy family: he would have a soul. Since then, he fights against demons, mostly in Los Angeles, where he lives in the present days. In his agency, his employees and best friends are Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter) and Doyle (Glenn Quinn, in the first episodes). However, this actor died in real life due to an OD and was replaced by Wesley (Alexis Denisof). Along the first season, Angel meets detective Kate (the German actress Elisabeth Rohm, one of the most beautiful actress I have ever seen on the screens), the Oracles, and lots, but lots of demons, fiends and vampires. He also fights against Faith and the lawyers from Wolfram & Hart. Further, the theme of Angel played by violin is wonderful. The actor David Boreanaz, with his cool style, fits perfectly to the main character. My vote for the whole series is eight. My vote regarding each episode (and the date I watched each one of them) is: 1) City Of (17 May 2003): nine 2) Lonely Heart (17 May 2003): eight 3) In the Dark: (18 May 2003): six 4) Fall to Pieces (18 May 2003): seven 5) RM W/A VU (19 May 2003): eight 6) Sense and Sensitivity (19 May 2003): eight 7) The Bachelor Party (29 Jun 2003): six 8) I Will Remember You (30 Jun 2003): nine 9) Hero (14 Sep 2003): ten 10) Parting Gifts (14 Sep 2003): six 11) Somnambulist (15 Sep 2003): nine 12) Expecting (28 Sep 2003): nine 13) She (02 Oct 2003): nine 14) I`ve Got You Under My Skin (12 Oct 2003): nine 15) The Prodigal (17 Oct 2003): eight 16) The Ring (17 Oct 2003): seven 17) Eternity (19 Oct 2003): seven 18) Five By Five (22 Oct 2003): six 19) Sanctuary (23 Oct 20030: ten 20) War Zone (25 Oct 2003): eight 21) Blind Date (25 Oct 2003): eight 22) To Shanshu in LA (25 Oct 2003): ten
