This is both my favorite and least favorite of the seasons on ANGEL.
I bought it separately because I knew and LOVED that Spike was 'back' and making sure everyone knows it. He gave it that much needed class and twisted humor that Angel never quite mastered. The interplay between the them as the 'two vampires with a soul', trying to figure out which is REALLY 'The Champion', not just 'A' champion, was great.
Yet a lot of the episodes have lost a bit of their otherworldliness and they felt a bit too much like the everyday evil we already face, where the good guys can and do lose... (And I could watch the news for that.)
However, they did manage to sneak in a few of the old 'cute' type episodes, especially when Harmony finally got one almost all to herself. It could have been waaay to 'campy' but it actually worked well. Too bad that character finally nailed it as the series went the way of a staked vamp.
And the episode with Cordelia (#100) is a must see.
Even with all the extra darkness of a show that was counting down to cancellation, though, at the end (at least of the series), there still was a glimmer of hope for a few of the characters (and possibly an opening for at least a spin-off movie or two?? Oh, please, oh please!)
Season 5 of Angel saw the gang leave Angel Investigations and move on up to Wolfram and Hart. The addition of James Marsters to the cast breathed new life to a show that seemed to have jumped the shark with the Cordy and Conner storyline. The change of Amy Acker's character to Illyria was great writing and the show really hit it's stride here. It's a shame the WB decided to cancel Angel, they seemed to have a lot more stories in them but it certainly went out in style.
After watching all other four seasons of the thrilling TV series Angel, I just had to buy the last one as well. Believe me I was not disappointed! The story escalates into the final battle of good vs evil. It was a great way to end the series and I think that the fans were able to see that. The cast did a great job and the story was exciting as ever. The only sad part is that we won't get to see them again. I recommend it without hesitation.
Angel is one of my all time favorite shows and I already had the first three seasons and had just purchased season 4 on ebay so all that was left was to buy season 5(the final season). I decided to purchase through ebay because t.v show seasons can be real expensive at the store and on ebay you can get them at a decent price. I have no dislikes about purchasing through ebay, I have never had a problem here. Also the dvd's always work great..
Season five of Angel is awesome. The story line is fabulous and over the top. Though Buffy doesn't make a final appearence, Cordilla does. As always the gang goes out fighting evil! Great season! David BOreanz and James Marsters are hotter than ever!
