Angel (DVD) Review
Nominated for 25 Saturn Awards and one Emmy for Outstanding Makeup for a Series, Angel has established a strong cult following during its five-year run on the WB network. A spin-off of the enormously popular series Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel has followed in the footsteps of its predecessor and boasts many of the same heroes and villains. Created by Joss Whedon, the show is one of a number of successful original series aired by WB including Buffy, Smallville, Dawson's Creek, and Gilmore Girls among others… Angel revolves around the life of Angel (David Boreanaz), a vampire turned do-gooder following a long career of killing the innocent. After spending three years in the small California town of Sunnydale with his girlfriend Buffy, Angel moves to Los Angeles where he sets up Angel Investigations to help those people most in need of protection from the dark forces that lurk within the city. Aided by old friends and new, Angel seeks to redeem his soul while cleansing the streets of Los Angeles of demons, warlocks, and evil lawyers… Angel's supernatural fighting team includes Buffy crossover character Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter), now an aspiring actress; erudite Englishman Wesley Wyndam-Price (Alexis Denisof), and street fighter Charles Gunn (J. August Richards).
Together, they join forces in a series known for its well-written and suspense riddled plots… The Angel DVD features a number of exciting episodes including the season premiere "City Of" in which Angel moves to L. unaware of his life purpose, at least until he meets up with his half-demon spiritual advisor Alan Doyle (Glenn Quinn) who reveals a more positive direction for Angel. When powerful vampire lawyer Russell Winters sets his sights on Cordelia, it's up to Angel to save her from his evil clutches… Other notable episodes from Season 1 include "Sense & Sensitivity" in which an evil sensitivity training instructor casts his spell over an entire police department including Angel himself, and "The Ring" in which Angel stumbles into a secret underground demon fight club… Below is a list of episodes included on the Angel (Season 1) DVD: Episode 1 (City Of) Air Date: 10-05-1999 Episode 2 (Lonely Hearts) Air Date: 10-12-1999 Episode 3 (In the Dark) Air Date: 10-19-1999 Episode 4 (I Fall to Pieces) Air Date: 10-26-1999 Episode 5 (Rm w/a Vu) Air Date: 11-02-1999 Episode 6 (Sense & Sensitivity) Air Date: 11-09-1999 Episode 7 (Bachelor Party) Air Date: 11-16-1999 Episode 8 (I Will Remember You) Air Date: 11-23-1999 Episode 9 (Hero) Air Date: 11-30-1999 Episode 10 (Parting Gifts) Air Date: 12-14-1999 Episode 11 (Somnambulist) Air Date: 01-18-2000 Episode 12 (Expecting) Air Date: 01-25-2000 Episode 13 (She) Air Date: 02-08-2000 Episode 14 (I've Got You Under My Skin) Air Date: 02-15-2000 Episode 15 (The Prodigal) Air Date: 02-22-2000 Episode 16 (The Ring) Air Date: 02-29-2000 Episode 17 (Eternity) Air Date: 04-04-2000 Episode 18 (Five by Five) Air Date: 04-25-2000 Episode 19 (Sanctuary) Air Date: 05-02-2000 Episode 20 (War Zone) Air Date: 05-09-2000 Episode 21 (Blind Date) Air Date: 05-16-2000 Episode 22 (To Shanshu in L.)
