Product Description

As Angel Investigations moves into its new offices, Cordelia continues to struggle with the gift Doyle left her and Angel (David Boreanaz) begins experiencing hauntingly erotic dreams. Once the dreams become more and more vivid, they begin affecting his sleep and his fight against evil. When the dreams become a shocking reality, Angel refuses to accept his friends help. Instead, he pushes Cordelia, Wesley, Gunn and The Host away, convinced this is one battle he has to face on his own--even though he is up against fellow vampires Darla and Drusilla and the city’s most powerful and supernatural law firm, Wolfram and Hart.

From Amazon.co.uk

The second season of Angel saw the cult vampire show finally stand on its own from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, assembling all the members of the show's core cast, transferring the action to a fashionably run-down L.A. hotel, and bringing in a few Buffy characters from Angel's history to further establish the moody vampire's own mythology. Moving their Angel Investigations to posher digs, Angel (David Boreanaz), Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), and Wesley (Alexis Denisof) were soon joined by street fighter (J. August Richards)–-and by street fighter, of course we mean demon street fighter. But just as this group was solidifying, up popped Angel's old love, Darla (the fantastic Julie Benz), freshly arrived in L.A. from a hell dimension… just in time to be turned into a vampire again by her old cohort, Drusilla (Juliet Landau), and lure Angel into abandoning his newly formed team.

It was the best and worst of times for Angel in its second year, for while the basis was being set for the show's stellar third and fourth seasons, dramatic tension was diluted by Angel's going solo and the necessary (but plot-debilitating) flashbacks to various points in Angel's history. However, just when it seemed everything was about to fly out the window, Angel's creative team threw its characters for a loop--literally--by transporting them to the demon dimension of Pylea, a medieval-style fantasyland populated by monsters and humans alike. It shouldn't have worked, as hokey as it was... but it did, thanks to crack storytelling, sharp dialogue, and the sheer joy the actors unleashed, especially the gifted and fiendishly funny Carpenter. The second half of the season also saw the addition of two of Angel's best characters: the horned Lorne (Andy Hallett), a green demon with a penchant for karaoke, and Fred (Amy Acker), a physicist trapped in Pylea who helped the gang engineer their escape. With these two in tow, Angel began to soar. --Mark Englehart

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! 22 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
As a second series Angel season two completely blows away the first. The plots are far more entertaining and with the introduction of new regular characters like Gunn and The Host the humour is being well developed. Of course starting the series with Angel singing 'oh Mandy' the creators could not have expected anything other than sheer comedy with a touch of cringing. The outtakes of this scene are even better!!! Not to mention the sheer entertainment in the final episodes set in Pilea - the host's dimension. Definately a winner

5.0 out of 5 stars What Can I Say But Wow! 16 April 2002
Format:DVD
The first line pretty much sums it up. At first, I was kinda shakey on the whole, 'how good is Angel' after such a show as Buffy, but Season Two proves that this show is going to be here for a long time. After the events of the first season, all the characters have evolved. Cordy (Charisma Carpenter) becomes a lot more dedicated to helping the helpless, while still having the occasional bicker with Wes (Alexis Denisorf). Their often humourous conversations help keep the series light, while all around them it is dark. Gunn grows more into the group and becomes very attached to Wes during Angel's turning to the dark side. As for Angel, everything goes dark with him. The return of Darla forces him to make a lot of choices, some very very bad. And when she gets Vamped (by Drusilla no less) he begins to sever all his connections to the human world. Another introduction to the gang keeps the season lighter with his great performance: The Host (aka Lorne). His introduction was a stroke of genius and everyone has to like this character. He can read people's souls and helps Angel on occasion, but the catch is: only when they sing karaoke. By the end of the Season, we see Angel back with his friends and heading off to Lorne's home dimension to rescue Cordy, fight evil priests and return home with a young, bookish character called Fred. All the other episodes in between, be it freezing time, demons, telekinetics or just a plain old visit from Harmony (with a bit more bite to her), help keep this dark show from becoming too dark. On the DVD side of things I have got to say wow! I mean, the picture quality is just amazing, it is (for lack of a better word) beautiful. The sound is brilliant and you can hear every single detail!

5.0 out of 5 stars Angel comes into it's own 5 Feb 2003
By L. Newman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
This season really shows that Angel is on a par with BtVS. I love the group dynamic of Wesley, Cordelia and Gunn, and of course, Angel's almost decent into Angelus is wonderfully done.
The introduction of The Host is pure genius, and the fact that Angel sings 'Mandy' makes me split my sides laughing every time, hee!
The flashbacks of Angelus, Darla, Drusilla and Spike are amazing, I think it's wonderful that not only can they hint at the history but actually bring it to life too. The scenes during the Boxer Rebellion are my particular favourites.
Another favourite character is Lindsey, played by the wonderful Christian Kane, I think it's great how in the end he has to join forces with Angel and also how we get much more depth to his character.
I think I'm in the minority when I say that I loved every minute of the four final episodes, the sets alone are completely believable, and any scene that involves Lorne is hilarious.
This DVD set is a must buy, from the packaging to the extras and the amazing widescreen picture, you won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, Funny, Dark, Good! 19 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:DVD
After the set-up with series 1, Angel really starts coming into it's own here. The first half of the series is truly brilliant with some great one offs (Guise will be Guise, Have you now or have you ever been) showing that the central quartet of actors are comfortable with their roles. Angel going bad by choice was really good and I would like to see more of that in the future.
Some people have written off the second half of the show as being too light-hearted and silly. Well that's what I thought too at first but it really was a good choice of direction. For a start if you kept everything dark all the way you might've lost a lot of the humour which is a trademark of the show and the plot may become stagnant. Remember that unlike Buffy, Angel doesn't have 'a villain a series' it has an ongoing battle with Wolfram & Hart. So it's nice to step back and have a laugh and then come back fighting to the darkness (which it does with avengance in series 3). If you think of it as a series separated than you've missed the point. Angel doesn't have to round everything up at the end of every series like Buffy does. The story is constantly ongoing and developing allowing for great one off episodes and a continuing story, and it accomplishes this far more successfully than Buffy has recently with series 6. Buy it for The Host, the reintroduction of Darla, the return of Drusilla, Lindsay, Lyla, Holland Manners, Anne (remember her from Buffy series 2 'Lie to Me' and series 3 'Anne') and the spiral of Kate the Cop into despair. A great show and a great series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Drawn further into the Whedonverse 29 Jan 2008
Format:DVD
Many TV series hit their stride with their Season 2 and this seems to have happened with "Angel". Season 1 was not at all bad, setting the scene and introducing the characters, with an abundance of decent plots, demons, action, and good characterisation and dialogue. But Season 2 takes it to a new level as the various story arcs develop.
The team is expanded with the addition of Gunn, while the increasing role of the Holtz is apparent, and Fred is introduced. Cordelia becomes less self-centred, Wesley continues his transformation from wimp to James Bond figure, and Angel remains good (despite attempts to render him dark again). As the schemes of (literally) evil law firm Wolfram and Hart play a larger part so we see more of the workings within the firm and some welcome character development there. More of Angel's back story is revealed, and we have a good scattering of guest stars as various characters from "Buffy" appear for a short time in the LA setup. Not only do we have gloom and demonic threats aplenty and action galore, we also have some very witty dialogue and truly funny moments, all the better for being short or in the background and not milked or drawn out.
All in all a very good demonstration of the remarkable talents of the remarkably-talented Joss Whedon and his team.
