Product Description

Product Description

Angel (David Boreanaz) returns to Los Angeles after spending time alone mourning Buffy’s death. He is quickly drawn back into the daily routine of Angel Investigations whose newest member, Fred is readjusting to life after being rescued from an alternate dimension. As Fred slowly develops a crush on Angel, Angel begins having similar feelings for Cordelia, while Wesley and Gunn vie for Fred’s attention. But then Angel’s old love, Darla, shows up pregnant with Angel’s baby. Although vampires cannot have children, a stunned Angel promises to help Darla with the birth of her baby, while Wesley, Fred and Gunn are more concerned about exactly what kind of baby Darla is having.

From Amazon.co.uk

In the third season of Angel, the titular vampire with a soul was forced to stand alone thanks to the (temporary) death of his beloved Buffy and her show's move to a new network, with no crossover between the two allowed. He returns from seeking peace in a demon-haunted monastery to find the L.A. Angel Investigations team fighting supernatural crime in his absence. Fred is still haunted by the nightmare dimension from which they rescued her; Cordelia's visions get ever more painful and debilitating. The schemes of the evil law firm Wolfram and Hart become every more imaginative and dragon lady Lilah Morgan becomes even more of an enemy when lusting after Angel. Unbelievably, Darla, Angel's vampire sire and lover, turns up, pregnant with his child and is tortured by inexplicable motherly feelings as well as a raging thirst for human blood.

For a few episodes things go pretty well--but Angel's enemies, both those he has made in his quest for redemption and those he made when he was unadulterated evil, are still out there. Stephanie Romanov comes into her silky own in this series, making Lilah Morgan all the more seductively evil because she is clear about the choices she has made; the satanic law firm of Wolfram and Hart are this show's most inspired creation. As the season moves to its close, Wesley (Alexis Denisof) has hard choices to make. The devastating climax is compulsive viewing, and this season also contains one of the most impressive single episodes of the entire show: in "Waiting in the Wings," writer, director and creator Joss Whedon comes up with a classic ghost story as Angel and his crew go to the ballet and find a performance that is literally timeless. --Roz Kaveney

Difficult season to comment on. Some point midway it gets an arc - but not like season 2 got from almost the world go. And it takes a few episodes apart for character development (but nothing like season 1). The end becomes epic and in Holtz with a troubled foe to match our troubled Angel. The Connor storyline (in view of season 4) seems now almost pointless. As does Wesley's betrayal. There just doesn't seem enough guilt or loss there to justify Lilah and his return to *True* Rogue Demon Hunter later on.
I agree that there are exceptional episodes. But also run-of-the-mill plain boring ones ('Fredless' 'Dad' and 'Waiting In The Wings' come to mind - a JW-written&directed episode can suck was my lesson).
So perhaps this is the transitional Angel Season. Fine. But there are no DVD extras to make you sit up and look at the screen, so I'm thinking 3 stars is pretty fair (for me).

Season three of Angel is usually considered one of the best in its entire run, this is true to an extent. But I think the seasons each improve upon the last in many ways, thus after this season things only get better. I think its fair to say that the show hit its stride in season 3 and its events help to set the cogs in motion for the final two seasons.

'Life's full of surprises', that being the main theme of season 3; when Darla shows up pregnant at the hotel after her little tryst last year with Angel, things get serious. I won't give away the story arc, but the latter half of the season deals with Angel's son Connor and in the earlier part we are introduced to Holtz, the vampire hunter who persued Darla and Angelus back in the 1700's.

With the addition of the quirky scientist 'Fred' to the fang gang and the gradual integration of 'Lorne', this enabled the writers to explore the increasingly complex relationships between the main characters. The writing having greatly improved upon earlier seasons, meant the characters, the small and larger story arcs could progress at a steady compelling pace. Relationships of all kinds take centre stage this season, including the Fred, Wesley, Gunn love triangle and the familial ties that bind father and son. As well as people getting together, there was a fair amount of people and things falling apart.

Consequently, the season finale leaves us with a cliff-hanger leaving us with the unsettling message that great changes are just around the corner... I sorta get the 'where do we go from here?' feeling at the start of season 4, and nothing sets this up like the end of season 3.

Same excellent shows in this season of ANGEL. David Boreanaz is superb as Angel. This series has everything, its so witty, fast paced and beautifully shot and written I'd recommend it to anyine who likes a suprise. My favorite shows are Billy- about a guy who has the power to make other men brutalise women. Offspring- a very pregnant Darla. Lullaby- Darla in labour and a very unusual 'birth'. Waiting in the wings- My favourite episode ever! A wonderfully funny/sad show. The cinematography and story are stunning. All about a magical ballet. Angel & Cordy are HOT and of cause nothing goes how you'd expect or want.

Yep, for me this is definitely the best series of Angel, where all the minor flaws from the first two seasons were ironed out but before the still good but slightly bloated fourth season. This third series represents all of the best things about Angel, and comes out on top in practically every way.

First off, the cast is at its best as all the major players have now arrived, i.e. Angel, Cordy, Wes, Gunn, Fred and Lorne, making this the first full series with what most people would probably consider the "classic" lineup. The addition of Fred was definitely a good decision (despite what a couple of my friends might say), as she both adds something new to the group (surely the only people who could possibly dislike her are those who enjoy drowning puppies) and shakes up existing relationships, in particular Wesley and Gunn's friendship, and Angel himself is on excellent form, all the brooding having got a bit tiresome in parts of season 2. It's also in this series that Wesley evolves into my favourite character in Buffy or Angel, with a descent into darkness that is both believable (this being vitally important when you consider the rather clownish figure he cut in his early days in Buffy season 3 and even the early seasons of Angel) and genuinely tragic, and has enormous consequences for the rest of the show's run. Cordy, too, shows massive growth as a character in this series, coming to terms with the responsibility of her visions and her mixed feelings towards more than one male character.

Series 3 is also the best series of Angel for both stand-alone episodes and a season-long arc, and for maintaining a perfect balance between the two, a balance which was definitely lost in the plot-heavy (though, as I say, still good) 4th series.

At the end of the second season of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," when Buffy skilled Angel, the series reached its operatic height. The climax was the culmination of everything that had been set up and provided a level of pathos rarely seen in network television. During the third season of "Angel," the counterpart to "BtVS" reached its height in a moment that was stunningly surprising. But then the story arcs that dominated this third season were totally surprising.
Season two of "Angel" had ended with the gang returning from Pylea only to learn from Willow that Buffy is dead (How good is Alyson Hannigan? She just looks at Angel, never says a word, and it is clear what has happened). Season three starts with Angel still in a bad mood after a long summer of mourning Buffy, but then three significant threads are revealed. The first is a prophecy in the Nyazian scrolls, that predicts a being or an event that will bring about the end of time. The second is the arrival of an immensely pregnant Darla (Julie Benz), who informs Angel that he is the father. The third is the arrival of Holtz, a mortal enemy of Angelus and Darla, who has been brought from the past by the demon Sahjhan to kill them both.
Of course, these threads all collide, and this is only the story arc that dominates the first third of the season. Darla's pregnancy derails any romantic entanglement between Angel and Cordelia, the evidence of the one night stand with Darla adding insult to the injury of the gypsy's curse. Then there are the complications of the pregnancy, which should have been impossible given mommy and daddy are dead vampires, because it turns out the baby has a soul and that Darla cannot deliver naturally (as if that has meaning at this point).
