It's always been difficult to decide whether Buffy or Angel was the better show, until now. Set in new surroundings, Wolfram & Hart, Angel got a fresh new look for it's final and best season.
The 4th season was evidence of the show getting a bit stale and this move was a breath of fresh air. The season has some excellent continuous storylines, but also some great individual episodes. Smile Time, You're Welcome and Harm's Way are great examples of these. Every charcter had episodes devoted just to them, with references going back to the beginning in some cases. The story arcs are great too. Adjusting to life in the largest, oldest and not forgetting most evil law firm in the world provides a great plot for the 1st half with some memorable and hilarious moments, the reintroductions of Spike and Harmony being an excellent choice. The 2nd half then moves into more serious plots that don't just revolve around individuals, but the company as a whole. The introduction of Illyria halfway through was a bold but great move and the build up to the final battle with the Senior Partners is addictive viewing, quite literally. I watched the whole series in the space of 25 hours. Never has a show had such a moving ending. It leaves you feeling very satisfied while at the same time wanting more. You get closure on all the characters that matter, from Cordelia all the way through to Lindsey. The progress in the relationships between Fred & Wes and Connor & Angel are especially moving.
The final few episodes manage to create a sense of finality at the same time as having a familiar sense of continuity. It has stuck to the theme of all the seasons - you have to fight on and although the war may never end, you can always make a difference in the world. This will not let any Angel fans down.

Wow, this DVD set has the best featurettes I've seen on any Angel series. Right from the art work to the commentaries this is a feast of salty goodness for any Angel fan. Commentaries by Joss Whedon, Skip Schoolnik, David Fury, Steven S. Deknight, David Boreanaz, Juliet Landau, Christian Kane, Brent Fletcher, Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Sarah Thompson, Adam Baldwin, Jeffrey Bell and wonderful insights into the show that I'd never have known without it. The show production values come shinning through to reveal just what Warner Brothers through away when they cancelled Angel.

I have to admit, when I bought this series I had my doubts. I had heard a lot of negative viewpoints on the season, and the absence of Cordelia did not look appealing.
However, when I finally watched it, I was completely amazed. Angel went out with a bang, not a whimper, and kept it's premise until the very end. There's plenty of stand-alone episodes, which makes a refreshing change to the interesting although heavy arcs of the last 3 seasons, and a focus on character development. Everyone changes in this season, whether it's Lorne, Gunn, Fred or Connor (please note that despite being a chief Connor hater, this season convinced me that the character could be incredibly likeable). Angel's loyalties are kept ambiguous right from the very end, as he dives deeper and deeper into Wolfram & Hart. There are plenty of new characters to pique your interest, as well as the return of Buffy favourites (most obviously, Spike). For those interested in what happens to the Scooby gang after Chosen, there is even a little valuable info on their whereabouts!
To cut it short, this is a worthy last season to a surprise hit show. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, you'll cover your eyes during the gory bits, but most importantly, it will reward you 8 years of watching the Buffyverse unfold.
A must buy!

I was sad to hear of the end of this great series. It deserved to run for at least another 2 seasons after this.
That said they ended it with style in their last season, even when told it would be ending at the start of filming.
We still have all the great characters who are flung into a new situation, working for and running the evil corporation they have for so long thought against. It is interesting to see how they react to getting power and the way it changes them.
As well as the old characters we have the addition of an old favourite from Buffy, Spike. His relationship with angel is truly something to enjoy. It is great seeing how they get on each others nerves and it adds spark to the series.
As per usual in any Angel or Buffy the series has plenty of action, drama and comedy. As a show where comedy is not the main part of it it still had my laughing at times harder than any comedy might. The 'muppet' episode goes down as one of the funniest episodes I have ever seen.
It ends on a cliff hanger, leaving us hoping they will make more, or tv movies or even a theatre movie. But at the same time you are left satisfied.
If you want to buy a DVD television series to watch you can do no better than any Buffy or Angel DVD's.

Angel's fifth season was its final and greatest season; building on four years worth of history the episodes were able to reach new levels and enabled the writers to add vast depth to their already wonderfully realised characters. It does start off at a somewhat unsteady pace; it would seem that the writers were approaching this season with caution as they were close to being cancelled the year before.

As a condition of being renewed for a fifth season Angel suffered large budget cuts and a return to a more 'stand alone episode' formula. Although this was never going to benefit the show, the writers pulled out all the proverbial stops to make this one of the most emotionally explosive and exciting seasons ever! Had this not been the last season I wonder whether Joss Whedon would have had the heart to kill off certain characters; not that I'm complaining. This season hit all the right buttons, in a way no other one did, in fact it is probably better than most, if not all, Buffy the Vampire Slayer seasons and I don't say that lightly! As well as saying goodbye to a number of well loved characters this season, a number of them make a return including; Andrew (geek from Buffy), a much better drawn Connor who is entirely less annoying and dear Cordelia, among a few others.

The season opens with `Conviction', as the gang were handed over the keys to Wolfram and Hart at the end of season 4, this episode was based upon them settling in to their new home and the season sees them progressively getting to grips with their situation. (This leads to many moral quandaries and Angel (quite often) killing his clients!) Despite the slow start, the early episodes are not without merit but when compared with the second part of the season they are evidently nowhere near as good.
