Show Summary

"If you need help, then look no further. Angel Investigations is the best. Our rats are low..." "Rates!" "It says 'rats.' Our rates are low, but our standards are high. When the chips are down, and you're at the end of your rope you need someone that you can count on. And that's what you'll find here -- someone who will go all the way, no matter what. So don't lose hope. Come on over to our offices and you'll see that there's still heroes in this world." For over two centuries, Angelus was one of the most vicious vampires ever to walk the earth. Then he killed the wrong girl, and her grieving Gypsy family cursed him with the return of his soul, causing him to suffer remorse for all the hundreds of innocents that he had killed through the years. Now he goes by the name Angel, and he fights to protect the helpless from those who would prey upon them as he once did himself. After three years of living in Sunnydale, fighting alongside his girlfriend Buffy, Angel has moved to Los Angeles to continue the good fight. Aided by a few old friends and some new ones, Angel must take on vampires, demons, lawyers, and all of the other dark forces that Los Angeles has to offer.moreless

  • One of the best shows I've ever watched

    10
    "Angel" is honestly one of the greatest shows to ever. When I first watched the show, I felt entertained because thanks to this show, I'm planning to become a tv/film writer, director and producer. Also, I really didn't know that this was the spin-off of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". I love this show so much and I couldn't be anymore happier than watch a vampire with a human soul fighting evil. You rock Joss Whedon.moreless
  • Another Masterpiece by Joss Whedon! An Unforgettabe Vampire Story.

    As I huge fan of Buffy The Vampire Slayer when I heard that Angel had his own show I was immediately interested but I had strong doubts. I mean Buffy is the most Awesometacular, Majestic, Crowd Pleasing, Theraputic, Badass, hip, classy, Romantic, Poetic, Powerfully moving shows in the Entire universe and their is no way that Angel can compare right? Wrong! Angel is a mesmorizing, engrossing and dark tale that is every bit as deep and as charming as Buffy. Angel is an incredibly complex character and one of the most enduring and sympathetic heroes ever created. What makes him interesting is that fact tha he is looking for redemption after being cursed with a Soul. He was an evil Demon like all Vampires until he killed a Gypsy girl and her people sought revenge. His human Soul is what makes him suffer but its also what makes him so noble. Throughout the series Angel is tested and beaten down. His hope is taken away from him but he always finds a way to win it back. The main Antagonist of the series is the evil lawfirm known as Wolfram and Heart. It literally buys and controls all of the evil in the world. Angel and his Friends fight in Los Angelos to inspire others. He is accompained by Cordelia Chase, Wesley Windum Price, Charles Gunn, Doyle, Fred Burkle and Lorne. All of these colorful characters are fascinating to watch on screen and they are given so much charm and life that it is difficult not to fall in love with them! I love Angel Close relationship with his friends in this show. Its whats seperates him from his character on Buffy. I particularly love the close bond that he forms with Cordelia and how much her character grows as a result. She is a much deeper and more heroic character than she was on Buffy yet she is still her awesome bitchy self. There are so many twists and turns on this show that are amazing and keep the audience hooked. I couldn't stop watching this show. The Romance is brilliantly handled and so is the comedy. Joss Whedon seems to know exactly how much add before it becomes overbearing or tiresome. I love the film Nior style of the Show as well as the Iconic and spell binding opening violin theme. David Boreanaz as Angel win you over from the moment that he is introduced. This show has amazing effects, action, and set pieces as well. Darla and her relationsip with Angel is one of the series highlights and the storyline is Sensational! Spike is my favorite character in this series and I am glad he gets to be a main character in the last season. His Rivarly with Angel is one of the most entertaining parts of the show. Angel is a Gem of a television show that I will cherish for the rest of my life! It's magnificent!moreless
  • I'll miss it.

    I just finished watching the series and I loved it. It was amazing, funny, dark, unpredictable, and at times very emotional. The characters become so likeable, with condemnable qualities, but you love them anyway because you've seen their best and worst. For example, Cordelia wasn't a crowd favorite in S1 but as the seasons went on, she was one of my favorite characters. Wesley is the most developed, in my opinion. He goes from this clumsy, whimsical knowledge-driven self-proclaimed "demon hunter" to a headstrong, knowledgeable stand-up guy. Though around S3-S4 the plot at times seems convoluted and crazy, S5 is monumental, bringing back memorable characters and ending in a way that makes Angel what it is.moreless

    I loved Buffy and I miss all those characters and I definitely miss the old days when they would be in their Sunnyvale high school library. When I finished that last episode with so many lives lost (including Spike) who was such a great character. I decided to watch angel which was a similar show and it was nice to see some familiar faces. I loved Angel, Doyle and Cordy together and I was Soo upset when Doyle died!! I gues the actor got in to drugs and died or Then they added more characters and it got better with but then later there was so much drama and love triangles it was hard to watch. And all the stuff with his son Connor... then Cordelia possed and PREGNANT AGAIN and everything sooo messed up!!! On that episode "Your Welcome" where Cordelia "woke up" from her coma and watch the old video of Doyle it made me remember him and get all sad then I find out Cordelia's ACTUALLY DEAD and I just gave up. NO MORE..... The only reason I will probably keep watching is a great character....moreless

  • REDEMPTION SONG

    Can S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Agent Ward Be Redeemed? Buffy and Angel Say Yes!

    How does Ward compare to other villains-turned-heroes like Angel and Spike?

  • ECHO MUST SAVE A POP STAR FROM A STALKER, AGENT PAUL GETS SHOT AND LUBOV'S MYSTERY IS FINALLY REVEALED.

    Dollhouse: Of Stalkers and Freedom

    This episode had so much more going on than previous episodes, as the Dollhouse storyline gets more serious.
