TODO - Is this out in blu-ray?
A girl, engineered to be a killer, flees her keepers, but as a woman she pursues general vigilante justice by helping a crime-fighting genius.
This series hits the ground running, featuring not just a stupifyingly hot Jessica Alba, but a great world, plot and everything else.
However, like too many series', Dark Angel suicide-bombs like it's been lit on fire and is heading for a volcano to end it's suffering. Not only is the second season bad enough to end the show, it's bad enough to not watch, even and especially for people who like the first.

It sucks that there is no "play all episodes" feature on the DVDs.

This show is not worth watching into its second season. Trust me. If you liked it to this point, just let it go. Let. It. Go.
Ending thoughts ∞
Only two seasons were filmed, and after watching it all.. I can tell why. The second season stepped away from a lot of the feel of the first. The new style really wasn't what I fell in love with and although I kinda wanted to get more of the storyline, frankly I was disappointed in the direction it was taken in.
Chasing 'father': 'the sandman'
The entire infection of Max thing is a fucking stupid idea and isn't properly implemented. The idea is horrific and in practice is pretty fucking difficult to avoid. Way to invent a reason for the ol' sexual tension, but you could have done a lot better than this guys. She comes near anything and it requires sterilization. Realism went way out the window on this plot hammer. Ruins a lot of it for me really. =( What they should have done is stressed (and re-stressed) the idea that it has a very short lifespan and can't survive after leaving Max.
They used to be righteous about having an original soundtrack and not using contemporary music for fear of it sounding inappropriate. Well they broke from that and chose to use contemporary music in order to have a shitty soundtrack full of 'catchy' pop tunes. Very bad move.. way to be on the take guys!
