Identifying the best episodes of Angel

Angel fans differ about which episodes are their favorite. Some believe prefer "I Will Remember You." Others prefer "You're Welcome." There are even fans who love "She."

Like its sister sites, The Phi-Phenomenon and The Buffy Phenomenon, the Angel Phenomenon studies lists that people make. Instead of studying lists of the greatest films of all time to create the definitive best film list, the Buffy Phenomenon studies lists of the greatest episodes to create the definitive best (and worst) episode list. The episodes are listed by rank, alphabetically, by writer, by director, and by season. This site also lists the episodes that polarize fans and episodes that fans have largely forgotten as well as streaks of great and weak episodes.

This site also tries to figure out what makes an episode great or weak. It looks at the extent to which the quality of an episode may be affected by the when the episode aired, the episode's writer and director, and the relative prominance or absence of major characters in that episode.

WARNING!!--This site contains spoilers. Most pages give episode titles for all 110 episodes, indicate how good each of these episodes are, and indicate who wrote and directed each episode. The Characters Ranked page also mentions characters who do not appear until season 5 and discusses the presence or absence of major characters in fifth season episodes, and the Seasons Ranked page describes all five seasons.
