Angel, played by David Boreanaz, is about a vampire that has a unique quality. He has a soul. While his vampirism makes him thirst for human blood, his soul eats him up if he dares to indulge in his desires. When he first became a vampire, Angel did not have a soul. He was bloodthirsty and was pure evil. After receiving his soul from an angry gypsy tribe, Angel works to repent for his past sins. In the beginning of the series, Angel had recently moved out to L.A. and was soon confronted by a demon. This demon had the ability to see into the future and helped Angel turn over a new leaf. This future-seeing demon helps Angel find and save the hopeless souls of Los Angeles, Calif. to make up for the pain and suffering he caused in his previous state.

Like all vampires, Angel is immortal, though not invincible. He constantly faces dangers and is even tortured, almost to death, by a vampire from his past. As the months and years roll on, Angel collects a group of friends (humans and demons alike) who aid him in his quest. At times, even his enemies change over to his side. Angel ends up having to make difficult decisions that teeter on the edge of morality.

Joss Whedon produced this series that spans over five seasons and is geared toward teens. Throughout the series, Angel does everything from falling in love to reversing an apocalypse to having a son.
