Angel: Season 1 (1999 - 2000)



Critic Consensus: Angel builds on the solid sex appeal of its lead, forging an unexpectedly worthy spinoff that draws viewers in with character depth, clever humor, and a suitably dark and brooding backdrop.

Critic Reviews for Angel Season 1

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (11)

Angel was a show that knew what it wanted to be from day one, and it did a great job of getting there.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

The series is given some initial stability by carry-overs from Buffy, who ground the show with familiarity even as it tries to stake out new territory.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Over the five seasons, Angel offered its audience countless moments of aesthetic pleasure... provocative storylines [two vampires give birth to a human baby], transgressive representation of gender...

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Yes, if you loved David Boreanaz' brooding, tormented, redemption-seeking character, you were going to enjoy watching Angel (formerly Angelus, The Scourge of Europe) fight a whole new kind of big, bad in Los Angeles.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Angel turns out to be as nimble, in its own way, as Buffy itself, and Boreanaz a revelation.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Angel is every bit the rewarding hybrid of gravity and levity, the latter flowing largely from another Buffy alumnus, the tenaciously perky Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), now an aspiring actress in L.A.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

With the darker setting, and the "evil" law firm that plays the role of a "big bad" early in the series, the show definitely will appeal to those looking for something in the same theme as Buffy, but with a darker tone.

Sep 27, 2018 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

During Season 1 Angel was a very entertaining series, but locked into a procedural, monster-of-the-week format, that stopped the show from being, forgive the term, must see TV.

Sep 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Season one of Angel takes place in a recognisable version of reality.

Sep 25, 2018 | Full Review…

It's especially fun to watch these along with Buffy, because it almost feels like the original show's been spread out and doubled.
