Dark Angel is one of the most underrated shows of alltime. It has a lot of excellent fight scenes,nice touches of humor,and good performances from every character in it. It stars Jessica Alba who in my opinion is the sexiest actress alive today. She plays Max a genetically engineered super soldier developed by Manticore. The show is set in future where world in disarray and law runs everything with a iron fist. There are surveillance robots flying around watching every move that person makes. The government is also corrupt,and worried about how much money they going to make. Logan Played by Michael Weatherly is computer hacker named eyes only who runs a streaming video on everyone tvs that cannot traced. He tells of corrupt rich people misdeed,Max helps him put a stop to the illegal activities done by those individuals. In return,he helps her locate the other kids that escaped with Max from Manticore. Colonel Lydekker well played by John Savage is always on the hunt to capture max and take her back to Manticore and have mind reprogrammed. Max also has a dayjob at Jampony bike messenger service. Her coworkers are unusual and entertaining. Especially the guy that runs Jampony. Jensen Ackles from Supernatural turns up in several episodes in the series. He is one of the best characters in it. I recommend everybody check this out. It was created by James Cameron(Terminator). If you like good science-fiction shows you will probably like this one. Wow Is Jessica Alba Hot!!!!!!!!!!
In Season One of James Cameron's two-season sci-fi series, the viewer learns the stories of Max (played by the ever-stunning Jessica Alba), a genetically enhanced super-soldier who escaped her creators as a child, and Logan, an independantly wealthy freedom fighter in a post-economic crash Seattle.
The plot is excellent and the dialogue, though at times a bit cheesy, is well-delivered. The action sequences are second-to-none (at least, none on TV), and some of the moral messages in the show are fantastic.
I bought season one because of Jessica Alba, but I wind up watching it over and over because I love the story. Believe it or not, there's something that everyone can connect with in the ongoing saga of a genetically enhanced super-soldier who escaped her top-secret government confines to live and work as a dirt-poor, message delivery-girl by day and thief-turned-freedom fighter by night, in-and-out of love with a self-righteous rich kid (who is apparently the only decent human being on the planet with any mooney left).
After I watched this season, my younger sisters actually fell in love with the show and bought season two, which I thought was just a tad campy, althuogh still worth watching.
So, I would rcommend this series to anyone who likes sci-fi, action/adventure, or just eye-candy.
Dark Angel was the first of many that started to come out in the "chicks kick butt" genre of the entertainment world a few years back. As an avid lover of this genre, I was readily sucked into the series during its first season. The bleak futuristic setting, the camaraderie of the characters, the scientific intrigue of genetically enhanced super-soldiers, and the action all kept me entertained. But as a red-blooded male, it is pretty obvious why I bought this DVD set: it doesn't matter whether you own a plasma, DLP, or regular tube TV, the exotic beauty of Jessica Alba will melt your screen.
Dark Angel is an exciting sci-fi series set in a dystopian not-at-all distant future. After a pulse disabled most technology in 2009, the US was set back to living like a third world country. Crime and violence run rampant. Max, played by Jessica Alba, is a genetically engineered soldier who escaped from her captors and is trying to find a life as a normal girl in this unfortunate setting. Over the series she tries to find her genetically engineered siblings and works on do-gooder causes with her romantic interest, hacker "Eyes Only" Logan.
The show set a president of having a "girl-power" lead character, who was effectively the "brawn" while male love interest was wheelchair bound and the "brains." With great story lines, romance, and plenty of action its hard to believe the series only lasted 2 seasons.
If you have seen any of the Dark Angel series this set is a must have. I was very impressed with the quality and special features included. I only hope they continue the series some day. James Cameron does a great job. Hope to see a season 3 and more with Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly, they really make this show work, great acting in my opinion. Season 2 does kind of leave you with a lot of unanswered questions. Lets hope they can finish it someday.
