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

4.0 out of 5 stars Angel finds its own footing June 28 2003
Format:DVD
Season One of ANGEL ends with Wolfram & Hart, the evil lawfirm who seem to have become Angel Investigations' archenemy, resurrecting Angel's sire, Darla, whom Angel staked in the first season of ANGEL's parent-series, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. So the second season of ANGEL starts off with the slow, moral decline of our hero as he learns of her return and reacts to her presence.
The second season of ANGEL is really the season when this series began to break free from BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, and it really does wonders for the show. By developing distinct storylines that have little or no dependence on stories from the earlier show, ANGEL becomes strong on its own. There is only one official BUFFY-ANGEL crossover episode during Season Two, and it really only features a BUFFY castmember in flashback. My biggest criticism would be that the season doesn't really seem to find its strength until the latter half, but it's still a fun ride getting there - much better than the first season, no matter which half you watch.
In Season Two, Charles Gunn, the ghetto-raised moster fighter we met at the end of Season One, becomes a full-time cast member bringing with him all new stories. We meet The Host (aka Krevlornswath of the Deathwok Clan or "Lorne") whose home dimension plays a significant part later in the season. Fred (Amy Acker), a future regular castmember, makes her first appearance as a crazy slave-girl on the run. We get to see old characters take on new dimensions. Cordelia eases into her role as Angel Investigations employee and "vision girl" and begins to shed her shallow BUFFY persona. Wesley shows that he has what it takes to be a leader and not just the comical sidekick. Most of all, Angel takes a walk down a very dark path only to come out on a much brighter side.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Season!! Oct. 19 2003
Format:DVD
Here's my review:
Judgement: 9.5/10 A pregnant woman is trying to protect her baby, the tribunal demands a champion, seeming as Angel killed it, he becomes the champion. After all the fuss, Angel visits Faith in jail.
Are you Now or Have you Ever Been: 9.5/10 Very interesting story arc where we find out Angel has a connection to their hotel/mansion they just finished with last season. We go back to the 50's, a demon makes people crazy. Also in the past, we see a darker side of Angel that will take place later this season.
First Impressions: 9/10 Angel is dreaming erotically about Darla, continuously, while Cordelia tries to save Gunn from a demon.
Untouched: 9/10 Angel, "You wouldn't like me when I'm happy." I love that line, this is fairly decent episode about a girl who works with W&H, she cannot control her telekinetic powers. Especially with how her father treated her.
Dear Boy: 9.5/10 Angel finds out Darla is back, but she claims she is someone else so he tries to kill her, again.
Guise will be Guise: 10/10 Angel is out talking to a guy, Wesley decides to take charge and play Angel. Cordelia calls Gunn and they try to get Wesley out. The father is trying to kill her daughter on his 50th birthday.
Darla: 9/10 Some flashback scenes with Angelus/Angel/Darla/Spike and Drusila, Lindsay is off the project as Darla suffers with her new soul.
The Shroud of Rahmon: 10/10 Angel pretends to act as a crazy, bright and flashy vampire named Jay-Dong, they are planning to steal a shroud that makes people crazy, or in Angel's case, bad.
The Trial: 10/10 Angel finds out Darla is dying of siphilis, he tries everything but only Drusila can save her.
Reunion: 10/10 Drusila is back and Darla is a vampire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Out Of A Slayer's Shadow Sept. 3 2003
Format:DVD
For its second season, the television show Angel, began to step ever so slowly away from Buffy The Vampire slayer. With their original base of operations no more, Angel (David Boreanaz) and his team decide to use an old hotel, to work out of. Aside from Cordelia (Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), and Wesley (Alexis Denisof), the team continues to grow. Former vampire hunter Charles Gunn (J. August Richards) decides to help out full time. Angel continues to go up against the partners at the law firm, Wolfram and Hart. They are using an old vampire flame (the great Julie Benz) as a ploy to defeat Angel. This plan forces final story arcs for cop friend Kate (Elizabeth Rhom) and Lindsey (Christian Kane). The gang also befriends the owner of a demon nightclub. Lorne, (Andy Hallet) a green skined being with horns, who loves Karaoke. He comes from a place called Pylea, located in an alternate demension, that the team gets visit first hand. The "Buffy" crossovers continue with visits to Faith (Eliza Dushku) in jail, while Spike (James Marsters) and Dru (Julliet Landau), pop by in unique ways as well. Lastly, by season's end, the group will get another member that will change everything in season 3...
The team behind the series stayed true to the rules, first establshed on "Buffy", while taking its own risks in year two. The additions work very well, but I must say, that I wish Kane's character would have stuck around a bit longer. The show has really come into its own by now. Season 2 surpasses the first year in spades--Thanks to the influence of creators Joss Whedon (who stepped back a bit to start Firefly) and David Greenwalt.
The six disc DVD set has some great extras.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wow, you can tell why the series died
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. Read more
