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
In the beginning of the show's first season, whenever Cordelia would answer the phone at Angel Investigations, she would say, "We help the hopeless." That line was later changed to "We help the helpless." 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 »

During the first seconds of the opening credits, the red rim of a chalice in the background forms the shape of a halo over the name ANGEL. See more »
Two deleted scenes appear on the Season 3 DVDs. The first is a segment from Cordelia's fantasy sitcom 'Cordy' from the episode 'Birthday' and the second is a hilarous sequence where Wesley has a fantasy about Fred and himself doing ballet from the episode 'Waiting In The Wings' See more »
With that in mind, this is an excellent show. While I do not feel that Angel has necessarily bested Forever Knight yet, I think that it very well might. The show manages to balance the fearsomeness of the supernatural undertones with a certain exuberance and delight that I am definitely impressed with. The show can be truly funny.
Angel is not a typical horror show, as it deals much more with human relations than it deals with the supernatural. And it deals with human relations in a much more mature and intelligent manner than most so-called dramas on TV. I must admit that I was skeptical when I heard all the praise being heaped on this show by critics before it started, but they were right. Between Angel and Buffy, I don't really think that any other network touches the WB for pure creative output.
I am impressed with the direction that this station has taken, and hope that they continue in the future.
