Angel's fourth season will be remembered fondly as its
best; especially now that we know the fifth season will be
season four did indeed go off on a mad soap opera-esque tangent,
but dang we loved it! Love, betrayal, pregnancy, murder, angst
and anguish all added up to one rollercoaster of a series.
Personally though, I think it is most definitely the best.
Thankfully we finally get rid of Connor; Angel's version of
teen irritant Dawn, sadly we see Cordelia disappear in a coma,
and on the way we get an apocalyptic adventure to the max.
Stand out episodes from this series include Soulless,
directed by none other than Mr Samwise Gamgee himself, Sean
Astin, which sees Angel go through an Indiana Jones
style adventure which leads to... his soul being removed.
Other highlights include - well all of it!
return of Faith, Wesley becoming more rugged; which definitely
becomes him, The Beast and of course the madness of Jasmine
as season four's big bad. Fancy the bad guy making everyone
happy. It's definitely different isn't it?
Extras-wise there is of course the usual trailer pap which
is not what we want to see, plus the sound byte fuelled season
overview. The other features are quite good though, giving
us a further glimpse of the season's baddies, a featurette
dedicated to Wolfram and Hart and a tour of the Hyperion hotel
set which they tore down at the end of the year. On top of
that there are seven commentaries scattered over the discs
from actors, writers and directors.
in all a must have for fans, and for those with an interest
in Angel, but have never really sat down and watched
it, check out this series, as it might just get you hooked.
Then you can write to the WB and demand a sixth season!
