I got hooked on Dark Angel when it was on tv, but missed many episodes. My entire family -husband, teens, preteens -are now watching it with me and they all love it! It is different from many other movies or shows today who use nuclear attack/weapons or weather as the reason for the condition of the world. Dark Angel uses the "pulse". It is an interesting premise and believable. We like how the relationship between the characters and our attachment to them builds with each episode. It is wonderful, and rare, for us to find something that everyone can enjoy and is excited about watching. We can't wait for the next disc to come.
So far this is great, i just finished the last disc and can't wait to start the second season. For me, Dark Angel got better and better as it went. I thought they did a pretty solid job with building a relationship between cahracters. My only complaint would probably be the corny language used from time to time. Dark Angel definentaly got me hooked.
Hope you enjoy it as much as i did!
Pretty good series - but gets much better when her "siblings" come into the picture (Zack - recurring, Ben - disc 5, Tinga - disc 6). Season 2 (finale season) is much better with the introduction of additional "genetic" mutations (the "nomlies") but season 1 is still good and sets the stage for season 2.
