Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Filmmaker James Cameron's involvement with Dark Angel ensured it lots of attention in its debut, but what kept viewers hooked was the series' imaginative sci-fi world, featuring young mutants and a new star named Jessica Alba. The highly anticipated second season built on themes introduced in the first, and added new ones to keep things interesting. "Designate This" reintroduced viewers to Max (Alba), the transgenic superwoman developed by the mad scientists of Manticore. The second group of episodes (21 in all, spread over six discs in this box set) explored Max's superficial attraction to the charming, flirtatious mutant Alex (Jenson Ackles) and her growing love for the wheelchair-bound newshound Logan (Michael Weatherly), whom she could not touch for fear of infecting him with a deadly virus. The soulless villain played in Season One by John Savage faded into the background with the introduction of Season Two's primary nemesis, Agent White (Martin Cummins). Once again the backdrop for Dark Angel's intrigues was the futuristic American dystopia spawned by the Pulse, a nationwide terrorist attack that devastated the country's infrastructure and support systems. Over the course of the season's arc we see the destruction of Manticore, the rise of a top-secret government agency designed to cover up the project's existence, and the emergence of a cult of superhuman snake worshippers. In an unfortunate turn of events, Season Two's final episode, "Freak Nation," also serves as the series finale. Directed by Cameron, it effectively ties up many plot threads but leaves others dangling, making the show's termination particularly nettlesome to devoted fans. Crammed with stylish action and rich atmosphere -- yet dotted with sophisticated touches of humor -- Dark Angel deserved a longer run.
