Buffy: Angel

Buffy: "When he’s around, it’s like the lights dim everywhere else."This is my favorite first season episode, no contest. It isn't the romance, although Angel is probably the embodiment of a teenage girl's fantasy of the ultimate boyfriend. No, it's Angel's back story -- and what a story it is.It's only episode seven, and David Boreanaz is already well into his somber, brooding Angel persona.
