The vampire Angel, cursed with a soul, moves to Los Angeles and aids people with supernatural-related problems while questing for his own redemption.
The character played by Julia Lee, who first appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Lie to Me (1997) as the self-named "Chanterelle," reappeared under several different names over the runs of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) and Angel (1999). At the start of her next appearance on "Buffy" (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Anne (1998) she had changed her name to Lily; during that episode, she states she had once joined a cult that had renamed her "Sister Sunshine;" and at the end of the episode, Buffy gives her both a job and her newest sobriquet, "Anne" (Buffy's real middle name). By the time the character first appears on "Angel," she has kept "Anne" as her first name and added the last name "Steele" to it. Although it is never mentioned on-screen, the original teleplay for "Lie to Me" indicated that her original name was Joan (which is also the name that Buffy chooses for herself when she has amnesia in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tabula Rasa (2001).
You never know your strength until you're tested.
A goof seen in archive footage from Angel: City of... (1999) that appears in the opening credits of every episode is when Angel is walking down an alley. In a puddle of water you can see his reflection. Though originally a mistake, they choose to take it through the whole show, as a symbol of his soul.
During the first seconds of the opening credits, the red rim of a chalice in the background forms the shape of a halo over the name ANGEL.
Two deleted scenes appear on the Season 3 DVDs. The first is a segment from Cordelia's fantasy sitcom 'Cordy' from the episode 'Birthday' and the second is a hilarous sequence where Wesley has a fantasy about Fred and himself doing ballet from the episode 'Waiting In The Wings'
