On Wednesday, February 12, 2014, Comedy Central's program "The Daily Show" aired a segment about Russian crackdowns on gay rights activists before and during the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Daily Show correspondent Jason Jones interviewed one of the few gay rights activists he could find in Sochi and asked her, "are you hopeful that Russia can change?" Her response was: "I have to hope, because otherwise it's too depressive....I really do it just to not be ashamed of me, of my way of living. I want to look at the eyes of my children and my grandchildren, and say, I did all I could. As a quote from your--from an American TV show--it's called 'Angel'--there is a wonderful phrase there: 'If nothing we do matters all that matters is what we do.'" This line comes from the episode "Epiphany," during the scene when Angel is telling Kate about his recent realizations about how to help ease suffering in the world. 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 »

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.
