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.Written by
A key location in Angel's life is the Hyperion Hotel. In Greek mythology, Hyperion was the Titan god of light, and the father of three gods who were themselves "light-givers"--Selene (goddess of the Moon), Helios (god of the Sun), and Eos (goddess of Dawn). This is a reference to Angel's vampire inability to withstand the light of the sun. See more »
For a large portion of season 5 Spike is incorporeal. He is not meant to be able to interact with physical objects, and is seen passing through people and walls. However as is the case in most scenarios of this nature, he is inexplicably able to sit in chairs or occasionally interact with larger set pieces. See more »

I'd lay odds that the phone's dead too. What do you all think? Hmmm? What happens if there's an emergency?

If you asked me a year ago what Angel was then i wouldn't of have a clue, now it's 1 of my favorite shows.
I never had much interest in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the story sounded pretty much stupid, i mean a teenage girl with superhuman powers doesn't really sound that great, at least not to me.
I started watching it about a year ago though, the first 4 seasons were being repeated late at night, and since there wasn't much on i started to watch it, all characters were decent, but really nothing special, except for Angel, this guy had a past, a real mission, he was hurt by his past and tried to do good in the world, to redeem himself.
The series Angel is nothing like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it's much more mature and dark, they don't fight because they have to, but they fight because they choose to, every single one of them risk their life to help the helpless.
The action is good, the comedy is great and so is the drama, they did a excellent mix of the 3, the sets and make-up are very professional, and the character development has been done very well, overall i just have nothing bad to say about this show, except it being cancelled after 5 seasons, 1 of the biggest mistakes ever.
Personally i think everyone should see the first few episodes, i'm sure there are people out there that won't like it, but don't let the idea of demons and all keep you away from this show, it's truly 1 of the best shows around and deserves to be checked out by everyone.
