I do not remember why I missed "Dark Angel" when it originally aired, but now that I have seen the first season I am willing to admit I made a big mistake (Mea Culpa, James Cameron). The story is set in Seattle, Washington, in the year 2019, which is after "The Pulse," an electromagnetic bomb that basically pushed reset on the United States. However, that is only the setting, because the star is Jessica Alba as Max Guevera, who at first glance has a day job as a bike courier, and at second glance works as a cat burglar at night, bit at third glance and closer examination turns out to be a genetically enhanced superhuman created by the government who escaped from a military training school ten years earlier.

"Dark Angel: The Complete First Season" has a couple of plot lines that make Max both the hunter and the hunted. Max is always on the lookout for her "siblings," the other kids who escaped from Manticore, while Lydecker (John Savage), the head of the secret program is trying to find both them and Max to return them to government service. Meanwhile, Max's days as a cat burglar are over when she tries to rob Logan Cale (Michael Weatherly), a rich kid who is the secret cyber-journalist known as "Eyes Only," who enlists her into his idealistic crusade to clean up corruption in Seattle. Of course, the two are made for each other, but we have to wait for them to catch out to this rather obvious fact. What really makes "Dark Angel" work is the extent to which this futuristic dystopia has been worked out. This is not so much a series where the mythology emerges over time, as it is one where the premises are so strong that they sustain multiple episodes and provide compelling sub-text for the rest.

I had never watched Dark Angel during its short run on FOX. I'm a big Cameron fan, but mixed reviews and lack of interest on my part kept me from giving it a shot. I didn't even know the show had been cancelled when the first season popped up in stores on DVD. One thing I love about DVD is the chance to experience full seasons of TV shows in one big serving. I've become a Buffy/Angel addict, had the chance to collect all The X-Files (which I watched religiously since it first aired when I was a kid) and have also discovered great shows like Felicity, Six Feet Under, and The Shield. I've always been a huge movie buff but I've found that television done right can be much more satisfying than any film. Stories unfold like novels and characters develop in ways that films just can't match. Greg Berlanti's new show Everwood that's on the WB is a good example of this. Hands down, that show is superior to 90% of the garbage at theaters this year. Which brings me to Dark Angel.
As an Amazon addict, I read countless reviews before deciding whether or not to buy movies and TV shows I haven't seen before. I'm fairly busy, I'm a writer/director and I run a production company in Los Angeles, and usually don't have the time to post my own thoughts. But I feel Dark Angel merits a post to hopefully get more folks to give this show a shot.
After reading a ton of reviews on various DVD sites and here on Amazon, I purchased the set. Based on the comments online, all seeming to either love the show or loathe it, I really wasn't sure what to expect. The set arrived and it sat on my desk for a week or two before I even popped it in. Some free time came up and in a very short perod of time I watched the whole series, mostly late at night on my PC.

Skeptical, I began watching occasional episodes of Dark Angel whenever I happened to catch them. Not being a big fan of television in general, these episodes came few and far between. I watched essentially to confirm my hunch that it was going to be just another mediocre sci-fi show whose good-looking cast, rather than the story itself, was to be its selling point.
Much to my surprise and enjoyment, Dark Angel was nothing like what I expected it to be. While many of the characters had a rough beginning in the first season, all of the actors grew into their roles very well. The dialogue is (mostly) very natural and doesn't shy away from slang and street-talk like most television shows do. The mythology developed around Manticore in the second season is splendid and quite interesting and, putting my expectations to shame, the show did an excellent job exploring the reactions and repercussions of genetically engineered humans coexisting with us.
The season finale - which turned out to be the series finale - is, in my opinion, one of the best ways that Dark Angel could have ended. A happy ending, tying up all the loose ends, would have been detrimental to a show that explored dark and complex themes which other shows have avoided. In spite of the many plot threads that would no doubt have been developed in a third season, the triumphant but open ending is one of the strongest points of the series and allows the viewer to speculate about the future none of us can know with certainty.
Let us all hope Fox decides to release this series on DVD. So many people did not give this show the trial it deserved, saying, like me, that is was just going to be another bad show with a good premise - and even we deserve a second chance.
