Angel tv seriesThe vampire Angelus, now known as Angel, has a human soul, but committed terrible crimes in the past. Seeking forgiveness and trying to redeem himself, he moves from Sunnydale (and a relationship with Buffy Summers, of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") to Los Angeles, where he helps the downtrodden by thwarting the supernatural creatures that prey on them.

In this spin-off from the cult hit "Buffy The Vampire Slayer", Angel, the cursed vampire with a soul, moves to Los Angeles leaving Sunnydale behind to look for redemption and soon teams up with some old friends, and new ones, to fight evil plaguing the city.

In a city overpopulated by demons, warlocks and some really nasty lawyers, a creature of the night becomes Los Angeles greatest hope. Once a vicious vampire who terrorized Europe, vampire-with-a-soul Angel helps the helpless in order to get his reward from the Powers that Be - to be forgotten, and regain his humanity. In his quest, he sets up Angel Investigations, with the help of an unlikely (and quite effective) evil-fighting team: wannabe actress Cordelia Chase, bookish Brit Wesley Wyndam-Price and street fighter Charles Gunn.

Trivia

The girl with the electric powers, first appearing in episode 4.2 "Ground State", is named Gwen Raiden (Alexa Davalos). Raiden is the Japanese god of lightning. The character named Raiden in Mortal Kombat (1995), with the powers of electricity, is also named after this mythological figure.

Originally, there was going to be no Jasmine character in season four. Cordelia was going to be the "big bad." Whedon had originally planned for the season to end with a battle between Angel and Evil Cordelia.

In an interview, Christian Kane admitted that he and David Boreanaz were very uneasy about doing the "Lindsey posing as Doyle" storyline in season five.

In the opening credit sequence of every episode, there is an image of a woman standing by the side of a street. This is not actually taken from any episode in the series but rather it's from the "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) episode "Anne" (3.1), though the scene takes place in the show's setting of L.A.

Liam/Angel was born in 1727 and turned into a vampire in 1753, as established in "The Prodigal" (1.15), and he counts 1753 as his birth year. Although he spent 100 years in a hell dimension due to Buffy's actions in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997) episode "Becoming: Part 2" (2.22), he does not count those years as part of his lifespan and told Cordelia in "Dear Boy" (2.5) that he was 247. Allowing for aging and assuming that he survived "Not Fade Away" (5.22), he is now 253 years old.

Angel got his name because his baby sister invited him in, thinking he was an Angel that had returned to her. After he killed her, Darla named him Angelus, the Latinate for "Angel".

Puppeteer Drew Massey, the performer behind the puppet version of Angel in the episode, "Smile Time", was also the puppeteer of the vampire puppet "Count Blah" in the "Greg the Bunny" TV series.

New Amsterdam
John Amsterdam, a brilliant NYPD homicide detective is immortal. He is 400 years old, but his body structure is that of a 35-year-old. Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
