  • Starring: Jessica Alba, Michael Weatherly, Alimi Ballard
  • Summary: Max is a genetically-enhanced human prototype hunted by her former military handlers through the edgy, underground street life version of 21st century America. Max is aided in her quest - both to avoid capture and reunite with her "siblings" scattered in the aftermath of their escape - by Logan Cale, an idealistic cyber-journalist battling repression and corruption in post-apocalypse.

    During the theme, the opening voice-over was as follows:

    They designed her to be the perfect soldier...
    a human weapon...then she escaped. In a future not far from now...in a broken world...
    she is haunted by her past. She cannot run, she must fight...to discover her destiny.

    Dark Angel was filmed on location in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

    [A] dreary, derivative sci-fi series. ... Such silliness might be palatable if Alba were more than the sum of her svelte, zippered bodysuits. Instead she pouts throughout, speaking in a Valley Girl drone.

    Dark angel is a great show, in spite of its cheesiness and predictability. Mainly, this has to do with he cool post-apocalyptic back drop and the characters. The world is consistent and has a cool cyber-punk ruggedness about it. As for the characters, the relationship between Logan and Max seems genuine and sweet. The side characters all get enough focus to become well developed - I especially like storylines with Max's boss Normal who is both someone to hate but also a guy you can feel for.
    Ultimately, for an action show, the pace is fast and a whole of stuff goes down in just one season. Oh, and it has a pretty good, ass kicking, female heroine.
    Good silly fun.
