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 »

The R1 and R2-UK DVDs of season 2 are presented in widescreen (16:9), whereas the television broadcasts were not. They show an open matte image, which shows more on the left and the right side but sometimes even show crewmembers or other things that were not meant to be seen. They 4:3 framing is the one intended to be seen. See more »
Angel had its links to Buffy, there were crossovers and tie ins, and the similarities at the start of the show were noticeable. But as the seasons progressed and the characters became darker and the plots heavier, it seemed what we were watching was not entirely the same. As times have progressed, it seems audiences desire a darker more gritty version of TV, with shows that don't shy away from the harsher aspects of life, the Wire to name one, are shows favoured for. Angel had its comedic episodes, but the over arching themes were of the dark fight against darkness, being forced into positions where the right path isn't always visible and the seeking of salvation. This show was brilliant, and though it has carried on in comics, it will be sorely missed.
