With the second season of Angel, it finally found its place. Now surviving without the constant Buffy Crossovers, the writing on the show increased to a level that made it a top WB show. With the addition of 2 new characters, and a third by the end of the season, the show had a perfect cast. And it had villains too. Wolfram&Hart take their place as the "Big Bad," exept in their case, one that would last more than a season. With the addition of the plagues known as Drusilla and the ressurected Darla, Angel Investigations were torn at all directions and were forced to band together and become a true team. In that sense, they truly bound together to make it as a cast, and a show.

Angel is still one of my favorite shows of all time,its really to bad it got canceled when it did.

Season 2 is a truly excellent season,this season overall shows a darker side of Angel,as he becomes almost totally obsessed with Darla who has been brought back from the dead at the end of season 1.Angel fires Gunn,Wesly and Cordie for a time and is consumed with Darla and indeed with Wolfram Heart.He allows Darla and Druscilla to kill a whole room full of lawyers from Wolfram Heart.Angel walks a tight rope between good and evil for a decent part of this season and the tension and twists in the story are excellent.

Seeason 1 of Angel tended to be more of a monster of the week theme were as in Season 2 one begins to see more of the larger story arcs this show would become known for both in the Darla story(which wasn't really finished up until season 3),Angels obsession with Wolfram Heart,his problems with his own people and in the end of the season the groups trip to Pylea.

This is purely personal opinion what I am about to say but I actually like larger story arcs as opposed to the monster of the week stories.There are several stand out episodes in this season,including 'Are you now or have you ever been','Dear Boy','Darla','The trail','Reunion','Reprise','Dead End','Over the rainbow','Thorough the looking glass' and 'There's no place like plrtz glrd' and more,a great season ,very much worth owning.

I bought mine from,I got it very quickly and it arrived in excellent condition.

I worked as a master control operator at a TV station when "Buffy" and "Angel" were in production. I became an avid fan. Years later I found a special sale that included the first two years of Buffy and the first year of Angel. It was a great deal. But it's been slow running trying to add to the collection because I kept trying to find them at about the same price I initially bought them at. No luck until now. Thanks.

I get so angry when I come to the end of these seasons. This one was great. I know why I like it so much now. It's a freakin soap opera. Such drama mixed in with a little comedy. But not too much because the show would turn silly. But just enough to take the edge off.

Cordilia (Charisma Carpenter) is gorgeous. I am almost a middle aged dude with a crush on her. Darla (Julie Benz) is simply gorgeous as well. A real knock out. I will be ordering the third season real soon.

Loren (The Host) has really grown on me. Even though he can be disturbing to look at at times (it's the red eyes) he adds a pleasant humor to the show.

This season is much more complex than season one. It showed brilliantly that the supernatural elements in Angel are only channels and doors to the revelation of the real, human world. The Darla sequence was fabulously done, and Angel's moral development was credible. in fact, the Darla sequence is this season's strength.

On the way of seeking redemption Angel renunited with the human Darla. Angel thought if he could save her he would save himself.because Darla is experiencing the same thing Angel does- a second chance to redemption. But when Darla was once again turned into a Vampire, and Angel was being shown that the real hell is exactly where he is, he lost all hope of saving himself and seeking redemption. He became darker and darker by this realization and given up and had sex with Darla- the most brilliant plot in many different aspects: Darla used this moment to get rid of Angel's soul- the thing she finds most disgusting, in another view, Darla was going to kill Angel but didn't have to since Angel completely gave himself to her. Angel used Darla as a prostitude, he didn't care whether he will lose his soul or not and in a way he wanted to lose it and given in to the darkness. But when he woke up he realized that Darla had "saved" him by giving him the deepest despire instead of perfect happiness because it was despire that led Angel to sex with Darla. The sex between Angel and Darla was completely meaningless. Unlike the sex between Angel and Buffy, in which Angel achieved perfect happiness because he was happy with himself. On the other hand the sex between him and Darla was pure emptiness. Angel was completely in a "trance", even stupidity of the things happening between him and Darla. This sequence showed the irony of sex- genuine love sex makes Angel lose his soul, yet empty sex saves him. Thus Angel received epiphany- the realization of how deep he has fallen into darkness and began to comprehend a whole different view of him playing the hero- the revelation that he used to save people only to serve his self-matter, the desire of redemption ( which is the sole cause to his darkness and despire when he realized he might never recieve them, that the world is controlled by evil and good will never prevail)- to believing that he should just help people and save people for the people, not for himself. The most touching quotes of Angel:

Kate: ¡°I feel like such an idiot.¡±

Angel: ¡°Lotta that going around.¡±

Kate: ¡°I just couldn't... my whole life has been about being a cop. If I'm not part of the force... it's like nothing I do means anything.

Angel: ¡°It doesn't."

Kate: ¡±Doesn't what?¡±

Angel: ¡°Mean anything. In the greater scheme, the big picture, nothing we do matters. There's no grand plan, no big win.¡±

Kate: ¡°You seem kind of chipper about that.¡±

Angel: ¡±Well, I guess I kind of worked it out. If there's no great glorious end to all this, if nothing we do matters... then all that matters is what we do. 'Cause that's all there is. What we do. Now. Today. I fought for so long, for redemption, for a reward, and finally just to beat the other guy. I never got it.

Kate: ¡°And now you do?¡±

Angel: ¡°Not all of it. But now I just wanna help. I wanna help because people shouldn't suffer as they do. Because, if there isn't any bigger meaning, then the smallest act of kindness is the greatest thing in the world.¡±

however, this season's flaw lies in the 4 part season finale. it was completely meaningless and a bad choice for a season finale. the point of it was to bring Fred into the show. but they really should've done it maybe before the season finale. however, it is enjoyable to watch.

Overall: definitely deserves 5 star. This is the first season of Angel that shows the complexcy of the show and the brilliancy of Joss Whedon, the writer for creating it- that Angel is not another dump soap opera, but something that is deep and reveals the human world in its supernatural way.

Season Two seemed to get better as the year moved along. Many of the reviewers have said that the last episodes in Pylea were their least favorite of the year. I STRONGLY DISAGREE!!!! I have watched them several times and enjoyed them more each time. THey were just plain funny--I find Angel's quiet dark moods his least interesting aspect-he is far more compelling either as Angelus (season two, BTVS), or when the action is lighter and funnier. There are so many scenes in the Pylea clips that are classics-when Angel sees his reflection for the first time, or when Fred is introduced to Wesley and Gunn for the first time ("she's been here a really long time"). And the Host--going back to see his "mother"-very funny stuff, although his family "dancing" seems borrowed directly from Monty Python. And as a healthy male, I must confess to enjoying seeing Cordelia in her royal two-piece. She is great in the episodes as well.
Also, if you are as blown away as I was by Chris Kane's (Lindsay) singing in episode 18, his band, Kane, can be seen at [...] The CD is very good as well.
Five stars!!
