    Favorite episode is Sanctuary. I love Faith's redemption. IWRY is probably the best episode though, I love Bangel! The best episodes in S1 are the crossover episodes.

    Definitely In The Dark. (It's typically hard for me to pick favorites)

    'Sanctuary'- just for all the Angel/Faith interaction and for the Buffy/Faith rooftop confrontation.
    Plus I like Buffy and Angel arguing like grown-ups, Angel standing up to Buffy about something important to him for once, Buffy being put in the wrong by the writers, and W&H being all scheme-y.
    Wesley gains considerable character growth here that follows on from the last episode. After this he firmly feels like he belongs with team Angel.

    Honourable mentions go to: 'IWRY', 'Eternity', 'Five By Five' and 'To Shanshu In LA'.

    Funny that the top contenders so far are episodes which include Buffy.

    I'll go with the pack here and say Five by Five/Sanctuary (that counts as 1 ep right :p), and Hero

    Five by Five
    Sanctuary
    To Shanshu in LA
    War Zone

    If I have to pick just one... Sanctuary.

    Also, I feel i should mention. Even though "City Of" wasn't one of my favourites, the scene where Angel kicks Russel out the window; that's when I first thought "Yeah, I'm going to like this show"

    Sanctuary (it's pretty epic). I like how everyone is after Faith...and I really like Wesley in this episode, struggling to understand why Faith is getting a second chance in the beginning (making good points) and then, only out of pure trust in Angel, does his part to thwart the assassins from the watcher's council. Buffy appearing in the episode is also a nice bonus.

    Other excellent episodes
    To shanshu in L.A.
    Parting gifts (as soon as the tears for Doyle dry out, Wesley returns).
    I will remember you.

    Guilty pleasure episodes
    blind date and she.

    Maybe that's not the best way to put it; what I mean is that they are episodes I like a lot that many other people don't like, or are just indifferent towards. Objectively they might not be great, but I really like them despite that. I like for example how "She" felt a little like a sci-fi episode, as just one really small example.

    That's fine but I guess I do not understand how "blind date" isn't liked by most people and isn't objectively great . It does so much in one episode and is extremely entertaining. It gives Lindsey more personal depth, introduces Holland Manners, sees Lee McCullough get whacked, Has a kick ass heist involving Angel, Gunn, and Lindsey , and the discovery of the Shanshu prophecy as well as Wes telling Angel that the prophecy mentions him. So, I don't get it...whatever...by the way this isn't negatively directed at you lol...just whatever morons don't like it...and I also like she, lots of funny moments in that one and a great metaphor for national/cultural female oppression especially in third world nations.

    Yeah, what's there not to like about blind date! I recall people not liking it though, or not caring much for it, in the individual episode discussion, or maybe somewhere else. I remember "She" not being highly regarded either. I don't think She is anything beyond a typical episode of Angel really...but it appeals to me for certain reasons in ways it does not for other people.

    Yeah, I forget about 'Blind Date' but it's a good Lindsey-centric/W&H episode. I'd put it in the top 10 season 1 episodes- I often forget how many good Season 1 episodes there are.

    Great point, I used to underrate Angel season one, but on this most recent Angel rewatch I am realizing how awesome it really is. I always liked it, but thought it somewhat lacking, but this time I don't feel that way at all, so I can understand sort of forgetting about certain episodes from this season, considering I used to under value it too.
