List RulesVote for your favorite Angel episode, no matter how popular they are.

Here is the list of the best Angel episodes, as determined by voters like you. Although Angel began as a Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off, the show quickly found a unique and powerful voice all its own. With all the amazing episodes of the show that exist, it's hard to trust just one person's opinion of what the top Angel episodes of all time are. Fans of Angel are very passionate about the show, and there are often debates over which episodes are the greatest. That's why this list exists- so you can vote for your favorites and we can find out once and for all what everyone thinks the best episode is.

Created by Joss Whedon, Angel stars David Boreanaz as a vampire who changes his sadistic ways when his human soul is restored. Working as a private detective in Los Angeles, Angel and his associates help lost souls find their way again, while occasionally fighting demonic forces. 

The list you're viewing is made up of a variety of episodes, including "I Will Remember You" and "A Hole in the World". What is the best Angel episode of all time? Look below and find out.
