4.0 out of 5 stars Drawn further into the Whedonverse, 29 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Angel - Season 2 [DVD] (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.
