Angel Series

Angel is a spin-off of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The series was also created by Joss Whedon in collaboration with David Greenwalt. The series debuted in 1999 and ran five seasons until its end in 2004.

The series has more of a darker tone and adult feel to it than Buffy did. The show was also very well received just as Buffy was, and some claim it was better than Buffy.

The series follows the vampire, Angel (David Boreanaz) as he tries to save the lives of people in danger from vampires and demons. He does this because he lives his life with a soul, meaning he feels all the pain he caused for hundreds of years when he was killing humans.

For the first four years of the show, Angel acts as a private detective in Los Angeles who helps people in need. He's joined by Cordelia Chase (Charisma Carpenter), who moved to LA after the third season of Buffy as well as Doyle (Glenn Quinn), a half-human, half-demon in the shows first season. After Doyle dies, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce (Alexis Denisof), an ex-Watcher (also from Buffy), joins them. Through the years, Angel gains more allies, including Charles Gunn (J. August Richards, a rogue vampire fighter. Winifred Burkle (Amy Acker), a girl Angel rescues from another dimension. Lorne (Andy Hallett), a demon who can see into people's souls and shows them their path in life.

In the shows final season, Angel takes over the evil law firm, Wolfram & Hart, who was one of shows main enemies. But with him taking over, he's able to change the ways of the firm. Also in the final season, Spike (James Marsters) joins the fray as he is brought back to life after he sacrificed himself in the series finale of Buffy, he often bumps heads with Angel because of the love they both shared with Buffy. Harmony Kendall (Mercedes McNab), a friend of Cordelia's from high school, who's turned into vampire at her graduation acts as Angel's personal secretary at Wolfram & Hart.

Much like Buffy, Angel also blended multiple genres including drama, romance, action-adventure, comedy, horror, and fantasy.
