Dark Angel: Season 2
I ordered this disc set after watching a friends and decided I'd really like to own it. The series is fine, conversion quality to DVD great (IT'S A GREAT SEASON!!!!).

On my wish list, I would love to have an iPad version of the book available it perfectly suits reading on one.

And I wish they'd publish the next book!

But the Anita Blake-like voice of the author intros explaining how she would like to hunt down the original editor who refused her and how wrong they were was a bit of a turn off. It is usually interesting to hear the back-story of how a young writer climbs the ladder of success, but these intros form a mean, somewhat… Read more
