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.A. 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…
