Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
A mere week after Angel celebrated its milestone 100th episode in February 2004, word came from the WB network -- on Friday the 13th -- that it was canceling the series. With only three months left, writers scrambled to collapse into Season 5 story lines that were planned well into Season 6. Despite the turmoil, the creative minds behind Angel were able to give fans a fantastic send-off. In the season-opening "Conviction," Angel David Boreanaz and his colleagues Wesley Alexis Denisof, Gunn J. August Richards, Fred Amy Acker, and Lorne Andy Hallett have reluctantly moved into their new offices at Wolfram & Hart, the law firm they now control and utilize to continue the fight against evil. And they are aided this season by the other vampire with a soul, Spike the wonderful James Marsters, who materializes as a ghost after having sacrificed his life in the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The new team does its best to stem the relentless tide of demons, monsters, and even humans that are hell-bent on destroying L.A. The highlight episodes: "Smile Time," a series classic that finds Angel turned into a puppet while investigating strange occurrences at a children's show; "A Hole in the World" and "Shells," include the demon Illyria’s birth as well as the loss of a major character; and the return of Cordelia Charisma Carpenter in "You're Welcome." Other episodes here spring from the villain-of-the-week mold, such as "Just Rewards" with necromancer Hainsley and "Life of the Party" with the demon Sebassis. Unfortunately for fans, all good things must come to an end, in "Not Fade Away." With the heart-wrenching deaths of certain main characters, this series finale really gets the waterworks going; but also for Angel in a general sense -- a great series, dusted before its time.

    Requiem for a Great Show

    Well, season five was certainly not the best of the series-in fact, I'd probably rate it only ahead of the extremely uneven season one, and mostly for the same reasons. Owing to the change in series format, there were far too many pointless stand alone episodes, which detracted from the main story arc. That of course was quite well done and led to some fantastic moments, such as the return of the much missed Lindsey MacDonald (Christian Kane). Another problem was caused by the character of Spike (James Marsters). While a much beloved character and a refreshing change of pace from the gloomy and all too brooding Angel, I could never really accept the idea that "William the Bloody Awful Poet" would leave the great love of his unlife behind to hang out with his poofter of a grandsire. Still, the acting was uniformly brilliant and the writing often matched it, particularly in gems like "Smile Time" and "Harm's Way."

    Yeah, Spike!

    The whole season was awesome, especially when Spike came in, (he's my favorite character) Season 5 of Angel was ok towards the end, but everyone knows it could have been better and Joss Whedon could have made more seasons like he did with Buffy. All in all it was pretty good, the show up of Conner,(Angel's son) all grown up and almost as strong as Angel and not knowing it was just plain weird. :-/ Good, but not great, could have been better, now i just have to watch the reruns on tnt.

    A Premature Ending?

    I would compare Season 5 of Angel with Season 5 of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which many (not coincidentally) consider the weakest of the Buffy seasons. The storyline of Angel and the gang taking over Wolfram and Hart seemed too contrived; too out of place. But there were some excellent episodes in the fifth season--'Smile Time' obviously, the sadness of both 'You're Welcome' and 'A Hole In The World'...but, because of the cancellation, there is a feeling that the writers may have rushed to complete the storyline (contributing to some of the uneveness in the back end of the season), while leaving open the possibility of a return (Where's the Sci-Fi Channel when you need it?). My instinct says that, like Buffy, Angel should have had two more seasons of stories in it. But, for those of us who watched the series from 'City Of...', Season 5 completes something which was part of us for five years...at least for the time being?

    Angel season 5 is the best season!

    Angel season 5 is the best season! In this season, Angel (David Boreanaz) and his team takeover Wolfram and Hart, the evil law firm. The idea of Angel being the CEO of a evil Law Firm and Multi-Million Dollar Corperation was very exciting this season! the episodes in season 5 are very good! These Angel episodes were the best they have ever been thanks to the addition of the Buffy character, Spike (James Marsters)! Angel(David Boreanaz) and Spike (James Marsters) have this love/hate relationship was major focus for this season adding character developement for the series! These episodes are really good and I higly recommend this DVD set because this was an outstanding Final season for Angel!

    Not a Great Final Season

    All in all, there were some big surprises this season, but it felt as if it were rushed, with too many things happening at once. Spike's introduction could have been an entire season in and of itself. Fred's death and the rise of Illyria could have been another season. Angel and Co. taking over Wolfram & Hart was a good idea, but does anyone feel that was done just to replace the need for Cordelia's character to give visions. Usually, Cordy would give the vision and that would be the episode, trying to prevent what occurs in her vision from happening. This time, we have Wolfram and Hart, and the assorted clients that are used as devices to create episode plot lines. An ok season, with some decent lines and memorable moments, but in the end, Angel stopped being fantastic after Season 3, with the introduction of a magically grown-up Connor. That's my review, take it or leave it.

    It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

    Season 5 was bittersweet. On one hand, you had the best writing of the series coupled with the addition of the newly souled Spike. On the other hand, fans learned that this season would be the last. I dare you to get through 'Smile Time' without a full-blown belly laugh, or survive 'A Hole in the World' without an entire box of Kleenex. If you have been with the series from the beginning, this is the box set you have been waiting for. If you never watched the show when it was on television, one episode from this box set will make you want to own the other 4 seasons. Thank you, Joss Whedon. You are a true angel here on earth, and you gave us 8 years of Heaven.
