Angel: Season 1 (Disc 1 of 6) back to product details

I think I'll get my Batman fix.

Being a recent convert to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, once I finished the third season I thought I'd take a look at what I was missing with Angel (the first season of Angel coincides with the fourth season of Buffy). (On a side note, this was the only thing that made me hesitate switching my loyalties from Netflix to GreenCine - GreenCine didn't have Angel as soon as it was released, but I switched anyway, and they picked up Angel soon after.) Anyway, I wasn't sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised. While keeping some of the same themes and characters as Buffy (it is a spinoff, after all), it forks from that show and continues as a completely new show with a completely different tone. Not content to merely be a mirror of its predecessor, Angel takes a darker, somewhat more serious tone, and falls into more of a detective, film noir genre. Actually, it's reminiscent of some of the better incarnations of Batman. If you're a fan of Buffy, this is a must see; but even if you're not, you might take a look at this somewhat dark detective show...
