Product Description

Product Description


The second and last season of Dark Angel, the inventive James Cameron show about mutants during a future Depression, has some real strengths as well as one or two bad ideas that partly explain its much-regretted cancellation. Among the strengths are Alex (Jensen Ackles), the thoroughly unreliable mutant charmer whose flirtations with heroine Max (Jessica Alba) complicate her doomed love for Logan (Michael Weatherly), the crippled newshound whom she cannot now even touch--she has been infected with a deadly virus tailored specifically to kill him. The distrust this sows between the doomed couple does not always avoid soap-opera clichés, but often produces fine performances from all three, especially Alba.

On the deficit side, John Savage's memorably ambiguous villain Lydeker from season 1 (who is alternately the mutants' nemesis and their protector) disappears to be replaced by the melodramatically sinister Agent White (Martin Cummins). White appears to be just a shoot-to-kill operative of the state and turns out to be another sort of superhuman, a product of an occultist breeding program going back to the dawn of history. After White's first ruthless killing, Max's reluctance to use deadly force is tested to near-implausible limits. The show ends with a rousing and moving finale, "Freak Nation", in which a theme often neglected in this final year--Max's relationship with her fellow couriers at Jam Pony--reaches a powerful climax. --Roz Kaveney

After watching this season, I can find no reason why they cancelled this excellent show. Second season is pretty much a completely different show from first season, but it is still awesome.
Second Season focuses more on Manticore and the Mutants whereas first season was more about Max finding her brothers and sisters. I prefer first season myself, but I still love second season. Bling and Herbal are no longer in this season and their absences arent ever explained. But there are four new characters in this season. Jensen Ackles plays Alec, a twin of Ben from season 1 of this show. He was really a great addition to the show. He brought a lot of comedy to the show and a lot of drama at the beginning of the season. Ashley Scott plays Asha, a character I didnt care for too much only because I really like Max(Jessica Alba) and Logan(Michael Weatherly) together and she was only in the show to try to tear them apart. Scott even says so in the special features in Max:Ressurected. Kevin Durand plays Joshua, the first creation of Manticore with canine DNA. Joshua made the show more about science fiction. So if you like that, you'd like him. Martin Cummings plays Ames White who kind of takes over Lydecker's(John Savage) role as the bad guy. Although I hate him more than I ever hated Lydecker. Just watch Dawg Day Afternoon and you'll know why.
Some of the best episodes of this season are Designate This, Fughettaboutit, She Aint Heavy and Freak Nation.
The special features aren't as great as the first season. For one, there isnt any commentary by Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly which was extrememly funny and interesting for And Jesus Brought a Casserole in first season. Also the bloopers werent as funny and were only about half as long. Of the three featurrettes, only Max:Resurrected was interesting. It was about 15 minutes long.

Having never seen the show when it was originally broadcast, I bought season one and got hooked, so naturally I had to get season two. I had read some negative reviews about this season but after seeing it for myself I realized that those reviews were misleading...
Yes, season two was different in a lot of ways from season one, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment. One big difference was that Lydecker (John Savage) was phased out and replaced by Agent White (Martin Cummins). Although I really liked John in the first season I eventually found Martin to be quite good too. (You really get to hate White after a while!)
Another difference was the advent of the transgenics in season two. Other reviewers have stated that the show became a "freakshow" in season two but in my opinion this only happened in the last couple of episodes. Joshua was definitely an interesting character and a good addition to the show. Some of the other transgenics were quite good too, notably "Mule" who was in a couple of episodes. (He was cute and I couldn't help but feel sorry for him when he met his fate.)
Some of the new characters I actually preferred to the first season - I found Alec in season two to be very funny and fun to watch, as opposed to Zack from season one who was about as interesting as unbuttered toast...
This season still retained all that made the first season great - the chemistry between Max and Logan, Max's friends at Jam Pony, great action scenes, humor, and even a few genuine sad moments. (However, I was dissapointed that there were no episodes when Max was "in heat"; I loved those episodes from season one!)
The extras are not quite as good as the first season but still not bad.

I own this, and here's why I think you should get it if you haven't made up your mind and you liked this show at all. First of all great setting and a cast that have excellent chemistry with each other, especially our leads Jessica and Michael. A setting in an economically depressed future, due to terrorism (doesn't sound that far fetched now does it?) If you love fantasy with characters that are human enough to relate to it has tons of that. Don't want to leave out one of my favorite parts, the hot Alec (Jensen Ackles from Days of our Lives), he really had a great part this year. With these dvds you get a blooper reel that shows the cast, especially Jessica, was always cutting up on the set, a really fun group of people. Also important, be sure to check out the commentary for the finale episode, they tell you everything they had planned to do in season 3. It sounded awesome, too bad it never was to be! It gives you insight into the whole season though. I missed alot of episodes the first time they aired so this was a great buy.

Just finished watching the second season of "Dark Angel"; purchased both seasons on Amazon. I had never seen it when it aired, so it was nice to view it all without commercials & continuously. I really enjoyed both seasons, but I feel that the first season was better; in the second season they went off on some rather bizaare tangents. Unfortunately they lost, for the most part, the character of Lydecker, who was a multi-dimensional character with many as yet unexplored aspects. He was unfortunately replaced with a comic villain, White. There were times when I wondered how the other actors kept a straight face playing opposite him; this seemed somewhat out of place to the tone of the program in general.
While I understand that it is necessary to keep the love interests apart(in true soap opera tradition), I felt that the virus keeping apart Logan & Max was bogus; it seemed too obviously to be a plot device & didn't come from a true place but the worst, in my opinion, was the breeding cult episodes, which recalled every bad cliche about Satan worshippers that you ever saw in any 1970's "Movie of the Week". (Hey, just because they're devil-worshippers doesn't mean they're freaks!) Beyond that this is a great show; very enjoyable & watchable; it's unfortunate that it was cancelled, and I agree with other comments that it would be nice to see how this all came out, maybe in a follow-up movie.
