At long last an Angel episode guide for fans of the vampire series. But this 410 page monster provides so much more than the majority of so called "official companions" to other show.

To start with this work gives information on every episode from seasons one and two including synopsis, the best quotes, continuity and popular culture references. They also manage to cram in any music tracks played during the episodes as well as sizeable actor quotes on stories that arose during the filming. Now that's what I call detail.

Add to this a nice collection of colour photography (32 pages) on top of the large collection of black and white pictures scattered around the book and you have in your hands a real work of art.

Flicking through this book I noticed so many things I had failed to pick up when I first watched the series as most of the popular culture references are based around American culture. And there was at least a few music tracks which I was really eager to track down when I originally saw the episodes.

The only slight complaint is that the proof readers should have been taken out and shot for failing to spot that the dedications and acknowledgements seemed to have been printed twice at the start of the book.

This is probably the best series tie-in book that has ever been produced.
