The second season of Angel saw the cult vampire show finally stand on its own from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, assembling all the members of the show's core cast, transferring the action to a fashionably run-down L.A. hotel, and bringing in a few Buffy characters from Angel's history to further establish the moody vampire's own mythology. Moving their Angel Investigations to posher digs, Angel (David Boreanaz), Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), and Wesley (Alexis Denisof) were soon joined by street fighter (J. August Richards)–-and by street fighter, of course we mean demon street fighter. But just as this group was solidifying, up popped Angel's old love, Darla (the fantastic Julie Benz), freshly arrived in L.A. from a hell dimension… just in time to be turned into a vampire again by her old cohort, Drusilla (Juliet Landau), and lure Angel into abandoning his newly formed team.

It was the best and worst of times for Angel in its second year, for while the basis was being set for the show's stellar third and fourth seasons, dramatic tension was diluted by Angel's going solo and the necessary (but plot-debilitating) flashbacks to various points in Angel's history. However, just when it seemed everything was about to fly out the window, Angel's creative team threw its characters for a loop--literally--by transporting them to the demon dimension of Pylea, a medieval-style fantasyland populated by monsters and humans alike. It shouldn't have worked, as hokey as it was... but it did, thanks to crack storytelling, sharp dialogue, and the sheer joy the actors unleashed, especially the gifted and fiendishly funny Carpenter. The second half of the season also saw the addition of two of Angel's best characters: the horned Lorne (Andy Hallett), a green demon with a penchant for karaoke, and Fred (Amy Acker), a physicist trapped in Pylea who helped the gang engineer their escape. With these two in tow, Angel began to soar. --Mark Englehart

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow, you can tell why the series died Oct. 14 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'd recommend this if you really _really_ liked season one.

However, it's clear why the series didn't make it past two seasons. Yes, she's hot, yes it's all still high quality stuff. However, the writing falls to pieces. The series gets pulled in strange directions and isn't palatable at all. The things you fell in love with for season one are less present, if present at all, in season two.

5.0 out of 5 stars On its own... at last July 10 2004
Format:DVD
Angel: Season 2 was where the show started to move into its own 'formula', and the opening statement that Angel himself was not devastated by the loss of Buffy served to encompase one fact: the show was on its own.
Where the first season essentially followed the monster-of-the-week plus occasional storyline episode formula that has been tried and true on Buffy, Season 2 started to move away from that into the darker, emotionally churning state of being that we viewers have grown so used to in the third and fourth seasons.
The second season of Angel also points at the show's tendency to serve an overarching plot rather than a seasonal "Big Bad", when it ends with a trip to a different dimension instead of concluding the Darla storyline (which is completed in the third season).
But though this season has a darker, more plot-arc oriented spine, it still contains some excellent character and monster-of-the-week episodes. One of these is "Are You Now or Were You Ever?", thought by fans everywhere as being one of the best episodes of the show. Other greats include "Darla", "Guise will Beguise", and "The Shroud of Rahmon".
There are also portents of the futures of the different characters interspersed throughout the season. This is where Wesley really matured, becoming a hard-bitten leader rather than a comical sidekick. You can see his character being prepared to make the harder choices that cause him to be so dark later on in the series.
Angel himself has a hard time of it throughout this season, but then, when does he not? He grows dark, deep-set despair keeping him from both his mission and his friends. But his redemption is both funny and touching when he returns towards the end of the season.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beginning to stand on it's own May 19 2004
Format:DVD
The first season of Angel, a spin off of Joss Whedon's wildly popular series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was rough around the edges to say the least. Season 2 of Angel saw the series begin to find it's own footing, setting itself apart from it's counterpart program. Tortured vampire Angel (David Boreanaz), along with Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) and Wesley (Alexis Denisof) are joined by vampire street fighter Gunn (J. August Richards) as Angel Investigations upgrades to a run down L.A. hotel. Naturally though, things don't stay peaceful for long; as the demonic law firm Wolfram & Hart resurrects Angel's old love Darla (Julie Benz) who is made a vampire once again by her old cohort Drusilla (Juliet Landau) and Angel finds himself lured away from his team (get all that?). This is when the show began to show signs of being something really special. Just as Whedon's Buffy had began perfection in the middle of it's second season, Angel began to show the same signs of life and out grow it's growing pains; until the much dismissed by some and well liked by others storyarc taking place in the demon dimension of Pylea where the gang finds themselves trapped. It shouldn't have come close to working, but thanks to Whedon's creative team of writers it did, and the cast themselves began to soar when the green skinned, horned, karaoke loving demon Lorne (Andy Hallett) and trapped pysicist Fred (Amy Acker) are introduced. Though it's not perfect, the second season of Angel is some of the best TV to be seen, and the hilarious episode entitled "Disharmony", where newly vampiric Harmony (Mercedes McNabb) pays the crew a visit, is worth the price of admission alone.

Reviewing Angel's second season is very hard indeed. As a big fan of everything Joss Whedon's done (particularly Buffy, but also the late, lamented Firefly), it's all too easy to give this boxset 5 stars. However, to be honest this is the one season of either Buffy or Angel that didn't really gel for me. After a much more episodic structure in its first season, Angel moves into its second season with a few carefully constructed plot arcs involving the return of Angel's sire Darla, as well as the gloriously insane Drusilla. Unfortunately this doesn't work nearly as well as it does on its sister show here, and its much more a case of individual episodes shining rather than how any one story arc is dealt with as a whole.
In particular, the story involving Angel losing his faith in humanity and himself could have been so much more resonant than it is here and, although comparisons with Buffy seem unfair, her breakdown in series 6 was a lot better than Angel's here. In addition, after Darla is 'vamped' again, her character becomes little more than a conventional villain, which is an insult to the history her and Angel have. Yet to be fair, their history is treated with a remarkable amount of detail and respect in the earlier episodes. By far the most infuriating aspect of this season though is the long-awaited return of fan favourite Drusilla. Gone are the Victorian outfits and poetic language and in come pink polo necks and often silly turns of phrase. These come off as somebody writing Drusilla who doesn't know her character very well, which is a shame considering just how good she was in season 2 of Buffy. For me though, the most aggravating part of the season was its end, where the gang travel to Lorne's homeland of Pylea to rescue lost librarian (and future cast member) Fred.
