HIS TIME HAS COME . . . Now you can own the entire first season of ANGEL. All 22 classic episodes are available for the first time in this exclusive 6-disc collectors edition. From City of, In the Dark and I Will Remember You to Hero, Sanctuary and To Shanshu in L.A., these Season One episodes are a must for every Angel and Buffy fan.
He's hunky, he's brooding, he's a do-gooder, and he was Buffy's first boyfriend. Angel, the tortured vampire destined to walk the earth with a soul, got his own series after three seasons on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and did what any new star might do: he moved to L.A. (the City of Angels--get it?) and set up shop. Angel (co-created by Buffy mastermind Joss Whedon) finds the titular vampire (David Boreanaz) as a kind of supernatural private investigator, fighting evil one case at a time and, like his ex-girlfriend, keeping the world from getting destroyed by vengeful demons and such.
A darker, more film noir version of Buffy, Angel lacked the peppy humor that permeated Sunnydale but more than made up for it in its soul-wrenching gravitas, and it elevated Boreanaz to leading-man status, a role he filled out ably and then some. Initially, the stoic vampire was paired with Irish demon Doyle (the late Glenn Quinn) and fellow Sunnydale transplant Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), but Angel finally found its footing when Doyle was dispatched (giving his powers of precognition to Cordelia) and replaced by Buffy alum Wesley (Alexis Denisof), a fallen watcher who, like his friends, was hoping for a new start in L.A. However, pesky law firm Wolfram and Hart (a front for the demon mafia, as it were) reared its ugly head and discovered Angel's presence, thus setting the stage for a battle of good and evil--and if you're a regular Joss Whedon fan, you know that it's a never-ending war.
This first season features guest appearances by various Buffy characters, including werewolf boy Oz (Seth Green), slayer Faith (Eliza Dushku), deliciously evil vamp Darla (Julie Benz), and Buffy herself (Sarah Michelle Gellar), all of whom helped get the show off and running in style. --Mark Englehart
A fantastic season. I'd recommend this, even if this is all you got.
Season two is a real let-down, so if you like things being neat and tidy and consistent then don't... Read more
This is a great beginning to a first class show! Season one of ANGEL the series has far less story arcs than later seasons, and more character introduction, monster-of-the-week... Read morePublished on June 28 2004 by Michelle A. Cowart
I started off as a Angel fan before I got interested in Buffy and I have to say that Angel is so much better. Read morePublished on June 26 2004 by Mr. Bey
Okay so we all know that Angel was always going to have a hard job living up to the expectations set by Buffy, and okay so it isn't quite as good. Read morePublished on June 21 2004 by Denny Vu Quach

I'm a huge Angel fan.I believe it to have surpassed Buffy later on.(Mostly because season seven of Buffy was mediocre).Anyway,Angel's first season is NOT GREAT. Read morePublished on June 15 2004 by Billy Bill
I used to make fun of my girlfriend for watching Buffy. Then she started watching Angel and I had to sit through a few episodes because she wouldn't change the channel. Read morePublished on June 10 2004 by Jeffery A. Zickgraf
I was a big Buffy fan, and still am, but when Angel (David Boreanaz) went to make his own series I followed. The first season, I think, has some of the best episodes. Read morePublished on June 5 2004 by Michael Valdivielso
Season one is in many opinions, the best season together with angels last season, season 5.
And it really is, it's a brilliant season, which was in the shadows of buffy. Read more
