Trivia

While in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), almost all characters singing are in tune. In Angel (1999), a common gag is they are horrible singers (Boreanaz and Carpenter are completely tone-deaf). See more »

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

Wesley: I'm a rogue demon hunter now.
Cordelia: Wow. What's a rogue demon?

Crazy Credits

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 »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Best Series Ever.........
19 June 2013 | by shanawerali24See all my reviews

This is definitely the most underrated series i have seen. A series this good should easily have been given a rating of above 9.0. I have watched many series including Lost, Prison Break, The Shield, The Wire, The Walking Dead, Dexter But non of them are as dark, emotional and addicting as Angel. I wished this series could have continued 5 seasons are not enough for a story line so intriguing and perfect. Each and every element of the series is Perfect especially the intro music. Its my favorite music and definitely the most dark and addicting music ever. You might not like the first few seasons but please watch it to the end because after you finish the last episode I bet you'd agree with me that Angel is the best series there ever will be.................

Angel FTW
