Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
Even before Angel (David Boreanaz) left the halls of Sunnydale High, the brooding vampire with a soul amassed a huge cult following among Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans. So after three seasons of very tough love with the Slayer (Sarah Michelle Gellar), he scored a hit spin-off from Buffy creator Joss Whedon. Angel sets our antihero on the path to redemption with his own detective agency in (aptly enough) Los Angeles. Though Whedon's original concept was to have Angel Investigations save a soul-in-need each week, ongoing story lines soon took center stage. Buffy's bitchy Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) plays gal Friday to the psychic gumshoes, whose prophetic visions are spawned by the half demon Doyle (Glenn Quinn). Fans still debate the untimely demise of the beloved Doyle in "Hero," a key episode in which he passes his oracular powers to Cordelia. (In a sad footnote, Quinn himself died in December 2002). More closely interwoven with Buffy than successive seasons, the inaugural series has several juicy crossover plots. "I Will Remember You" gives Angel his humanity back during a visit to Sunnydale, where he and Buffy indulge in an erotic romp (and lots of ice cream). That encounter quickly backfires, but Angel doesn't lack for love interests. Comely Kate Lockley (Elisabeth Rohm) is his inside gal at the LAPD. And the series finale resurrects Darla (Julie Benz), whose love-bite first marked Angel centuries ago. This six-DVD set includes commentary by Joss Whedon, three featurettes, and scripts for "Five by Five" and "Sanctuary." Required viewing for fans, this debut season links Angel with his tormented past and his storied future.

Angel - Season 1 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 9 reviews.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I found the cast and each episode making me want to watch more. I haven't found anything like this for special effects and make up effects. I will definately add the next season to my shelf!
Guest More than 1 year ago
The entire first season of Angel was amazing. What's more amzing is what went on behind the scenes. If you haven't checked this set out...DO IT NOW!! David, Charisma, and Glenn are some of the hottest actors in Hollywood. If you haven't got the First Season on DVD, you haven't got anything.

The first season is great because it provides a recap within the first episode for those who may not have followed Buffy through the third season and is new to the character of Angel and his purpose in coming to LA. There's also a crossover episode with Buffy visiting him and it's a real tearjerker. The first season of Angel establishes the role characters and overall theme of transition and redemption.

Angel is simply great. It is unlike any television show that is out there (besides Buffy). Entertaining, funny, suspenseful and more. I can't wait until season two comes out.

Though Season 1 of Angel did crossover frequently with Buffy, it allowed the central character room that it didn't have on Buffy to expand. That was a good thing--we got Boreanaz/Angel as brooding, uncomfortable with attention, humorous, and reluctantly heroic. Charisma Carpenter's Cordelia evolved from Sunnydale vapid to aware of what there was outside of herself (Though looking at herself wasn't too bad of a sight, either). The sadness of losing Doyle--with Glenn Quinn's party-demon slovenliness--was replaced with Alexis Denisof's beginning of having Wesley evolve from the prissy Watcher to the 'rogue demon hunter' he really was at the end of the series. But overall, a strong introduction to Angel's LA life--his agency, the ongoing battles with Wolfram and Hart, his budding relationship with Gunn, his woman troubles...

Angel may have left Sunnydale and Buffy but he can still hold his own. Since they had him leave and go to Los Angeles and create Angel Investigations he has grown stronger. He proved he doesnt need Buffy to grow. He has grown more as a person since he left the show Buffy and he is more dark and mysterious in Angel now. There are numerous crossing over episodes to keep the link between Angel and Buffy but we can see in Angel that he is slowly getting over her and that he is more stable in Angel and more of a people person. The first episode provided a recap of what happened in Buffy and it also helps establish the role of the characters and Angel's path to redemption in the show not just his life with Buffy as it did in Buffy.
