Storyline

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.

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

Angel: Fight the good fight, whichever way you can
Allen Doyle: Tell you what. You fight, and I'll keep score.

Not Buffy, and somewhat better for it...
30 December 2013 | by chintanvora-605-405726See all my reviews

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.
