  • Darker and more adult than the campy Buffy, Angel works like a detective series with supernatural overtones: Raymond Chandler meets The X-Files. [5 Oct 1999, p.E1] Show More

  • The first episode of Angel is exciting and enticing. [5 Oct 1999, p.74] Show More

  • Some weeks, the series works beautifully, moving along like the otherworldly detective show it's meant to be. ... But other times Angel can tip too far into jokiness—or, worse, come off like a supernatural version of hollow USA Network shows such as Silk Stalkings. Show More
