Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Spike: [after he's been betrayed for the umpteenth time] Son of a bitch!
[he hurls a record player to the floor]
Spike: I do the work. I do the digging. Fight off a Slayer.
[kicks a box out his way]
Spike: Drive to LA! Hire the help. And what do I get?
[turns over a table]
Spike: Royally screwed, is what! Well, that cinches it. No more partners. From now on, I'm my own man. Lone wolf. Sole survivor. Yeah, look out! Here comes Spike! The biggest, baddest, mother...

Loved 'Angel' from 1999-2004
8 May 2005 | by See all my reviews

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.

My vote = 9/10
