    Every season of Angel is awesome and has many great episodes imo.

    I agree entirely, I love Angel the series every bit as much as BTVS. :)

    Even the first couple? I do think it gets better as it moved along.

    In the Dark is a really strong S1 episode which doesn't get enough mention. Spike is at his icey best, the concept and story is strong, and there are some stylish and fun action scenes.

    @Mr Trick I think every Angel season is better than the last (my favorites from best to worst are 5,4,3,2,1) but I also thought it was a great show from the start. S1 is my least favorite but it has many good episodes that I enjoy. Most of them I enjoy I would say (in Season 1).

    Fair enough. I never thought it was a bad season, just very hit and miss and that it improved with the later seasons. But I am on my first rewatch so may feel differently after that.

    'Five by Five' and 'Sanctuary', but if I have to pick just one, it's 'Sanctuary', (even though the ending of 'Five by Five' for me tops everything in the other episode). I'm a huge Faith fan so yeah. There is one thing that bugs me a lot in 'Sanctuary' , and that's Buffy. Every time I watch it, I just want to strangle her. Argh! Fine, fine episode, though.

    "Sanctuary"
    Kinda funny when it's the one episode that barely has my favourite character in it.

    Great acting, love Faith and the fight scene on the roof was epic. Damn that was a great two-parter.

    Blind Date,
    Since I'm a fan of random individual and less drama-heavy episodes I'm gonna throw "The Ring" and "I've Got You Under My Skin" in there too.

    I will remember you. Just got through watching it and loved it just as much as the first time I watched it. It was one of Angel's most heroic and defining moments.

    I think these choices and the ones from most of the others seem to indicate that it was a slow start to the show.

    Definitely Hero. In BtVS, Buffy inspired Angel to be heroic. In this episode, we see that Angel has now inspired Doyle to be the same thing. As Faith once said; it's a thing of beauty.
