you watched Dark Angel??? I LOOOOOVED IT sooo much!! i don't know anyone who watched it. And and it was one the best tv show ever, and i was mad when they canceled it but i didn't know why! I was super excited for the season 3 especially after that cliffhanger, we were so robbed! it had a great storyline and boy, wasn't I in love with max/jessica
Dude when you think about the shit this show was doing on TV in the year 2000…it’s mindblowing. I still think it’s one of the best shows one of the big 5 has ever had and the only good thing James Cameron has done besides Titanic. Look, sure, the acting wasn’t Oscar worthy a significant part of the time but when you look past that and realize that 17 years ago we had a show on TV that was lead by a kick-ass Latino woman who literally never needed a man to save her and around her we always had solid disability rep, mental illness rep, WOC and QPOC rep, and all sorts of racial rep in general you can’t help but love this show. The writing was incredible, the plot was outstanding, the characters were complex, and the social commentary was off the charts.
Looking back at it now it’s even more incredible because it’s a show that stands the test of time. The same problems they were tackling in society back then are still just as relevant now. I’ll never forgive Fox for cancelling it after 9/11 because they thought the war that was eventually going to break out after the cliffhanger in S2 would be too much for television at the time. That show was just hitting it’s stride and it really could’ve been a masterpiece had they let it run its entire course. What was coming was incredible and I wish it was one of the shows that got magically rebooted by Netflix or something but I doubt Jessica or Michael would come back. Specially after their engagement mess lol. It’s a shame.
