The vampire Angel, cursed with a soul, moves to Los Angeles and aids people with supernatural-related problems while questing for his own redemption.
To get the fifth season green-lit, the WB asked that Joss Whedon came back to run the show full time, and that the season itself wasn't as dark and concentrated as season four, but more self-conclusive and "villain of the week" style like the first seasons.
I am a detective.
Kate: Well, you see, the thing about detectives is, they have résumés. And business licenses. And last names. Pop stars and popes - those are the one-name guys.
Angel: You got me. I'm a pope.
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'
