Frequently Asked Questions
You got questions? We've got answers to some of the most common show (and site) inquiries.
- What is this Angel show about?
This fan website is dedicated to the television series, Angel and to the character of the same name. The character originated on the series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, created by Joss Whedon. The series, which follows Angel after he moves from Sunnydale to Los Angeles, lasted for five seasons (1999-2004) on the WB network. For more details, read the history of Angel.
- What happened in season _____ ? Who is _____ character?
The Episode Guide is where to find an overview of all episodes, as well as longer, more detailed recaps for most of them.
- Why did _____ character say/do/appear in (or not say/do/appear in) _____ episode?
These kinds of questions can be tough to answer. I can probably tell you if a character's actions are explained somewhere in the story arc. However, if the question is basically asking why the writers chose one plot direction over another (or asking me to explain plot inconsistencies), mere fan that I am, I can only reply, "I guess that's what the writers decided to do."
- What happened after the battle in the Angel series finale?
The story is continued in the comic book series, Angel: After the Fall.
- Will there be any new episodes? Will there be a spin-off series, or an Angel movie?
The last original episode of Angel was broadcast on May 19, 2004, and I think it's safe to say that there will be no new episodes. If I learn of any plans for for a spin-off series or movie, I will announce it on the site index.
- Where can I find videos/DVDs of Angel?
All five seasons of Angel are now available on DVD. I recommend amazon.com.
- Can I watch Angel or BtVS on-line?
I haven't checked, but I'd say the chances of finding episodes on-line are pretty good. Try Googling "watch angel the series online" or check iTunes.
- What actor/actress plays _____ character?
The main actors/characters are listed (in the headers) of the Cast News Archive.
- Who plays Angel's theme song? Where can I hear the theme?
The group Darling Violetta plays the theme, which is called "Sanctuary." As for where you can hear the theme, every time I post a link to a video or audio clip, the clip disappears without a trace. Try searching for "Angel TV series theme song."
- Do you know David? What is he up to? How can I contact him?
Unfortunately, I have NO connection with David or anyone involved in the series. This site is dedicated to Angel the TV series, and as such, it contains *very* little information on the actors' personal lives. For information on David or any of the other cast members, visit one of the fan sites listed on the links page. To contact David, see if FanMail.biz has a current mailing address for him.
- So, what is Angel's secret?
He's a vampire. ;)
Site Content, Etc.
- What information/features do you have on this site? What happened to the _____?
Whether you're new to the site or you're a return visitor looking for a specific feature, you can find a detailed list of our content at the Site Map.
- Where did you find the _____ that you used in the layout? Where do you get the content for this site?
Details about the site's current and previous layouts can be found on the Site Info page. Most of our text content - such as the fanfiction, reviews, episode summaries, the quote rankings, and the "When Buffy Met Angel" recap - is original. Sources for non-original content, including the layout credits, are listed on the links page. If you have any questions about what is original to this site, or if you feel I've failed to properly credit your work, please let me know.
- May I use your info on my site/message board/whatever?
If you wish to use copyrighted material from this site for purposes of your own that go beyond "fair use," you must obtain permission from the copyright owner. With that in mind, you may re-post a small portion of our original text for non-commercial purposes on two conditions. 1) You give credit by providing a link to this site, on whatever page my info is used, and 2) you don't take a large chunk of my content. If you have questions on what qualifies as a "large chunk," feel free to email me. Thank you for respecting the time and effort that I put into this site, as I've tried to respect the efforts of my sources. (Note: I respectfully request that you not use the layout graphics that I designed specifically for use on this site. If you need help with your own graphics, a quick Internet search will reveal multiple sources of graphics how-to's, free graphics that you can use, and much more.)
- Why do I see a blinking yellow graphic in place of some pictures on the site?
My domain's hotlink protection was somehow activated by your system, perhaps by your firewall settings. If you have a firewall - such as Norton Internet Security - if "private headers" are on, you will need to turn them off for this site.
- Did you know that _____ is wrong, _____ link is broken, etc.?
No, I didn't! Please contact me and let me know what is correct, or what info is missing. It is especially appreciated if you report broken links, because although I do check the links regularly, sites move/close so often these days that it's hard to keep track.
- When can we expect site updates?
Now that the show is no longer on, there are no new episodes, etc. to comment on, so updates are pretty sporadic. However, since the site still gets quite a few visitors, I try to add *something* new, at least a few times a year. Sometimes I post my plans for the next update here (with the most recent posts at the end of the thread). To be notified by email of site updates, join the AngelGroup.
- Do you need some help with the site?
Absolutely! If you'd like to send fanfiction, you can review our submission guidelines here. If you'd like to send quotes, comments about an episode, or any other addition to a site feature, email me at the address on the feedback page. I'm always on the lookout for content for new updates, so if you have something to contribute, I can probably find a place for it!
- Will you link to my site/message board/whatever?
I am interested in adding informative, well-designed Angel and Angel/BtVS sites to our links section. If you have one or know of one, please share the link with me at the email address on the feedback page. However, I do not do "link exchanges", or link swaps, or whatever else people might call it. I *only* add links to sites that I find informative and/or entertaining -- and that typically does *not* include sites that are selling something. Thank you for understanding that our goal is a collection of quality, relevant sites.
- Will you place my banner on your site to advertise _____ ?
No. (No, not even for petty change or the chance to win some trinket.) I don't pay for my own website space to clutter it up with ads. If you have an Angel-related announcement, I *might* add a text link to it on the main page.
- Who runs this site? How can I contact the webmistress?
I run this site, and my name is Anne. If you would like to know more about me - or if you're just really bored - visit www.rusted-crush.com to see the list of the twenty-something sites that I run. Feedback about this site is *much* appreciated, so there are multiple ways to contact me, as listed on the feedback page.
- What else should I know about visiting/using this site?
This is a completely unofficial website created and maintained by fans. The views and opinions of content published here are entirely those of a fan - either the webmistress or some other contributor - and are not to be construed as advice or as being representative of any producer, director, actor, organization, etc. Under no circumstances should anyone hotlink to any of our images, because (that is stealing and) we sporadically replace them with glaring messages about bandwidth theft.

If you have other questions, please review our disclaimer - and I apologize that the few bad apples out there made me have to "lawyer up."
