yep my all time fav too .. it seems there are more books of it

Will always be my favourite show next to Buffy, sucks that it didn't run longer, i think it was due to low fan base at the time and low budget, but i bet if Jessica Alba was offered this role in like 2009 or nowish the show would have done so much, i didn't really know who Jessica was back in 2000, i only started watching Dark Angel right after her Honey movie was released, ever since then i watch this show at least 1 or twice a year start to finsh.

look, I started hating this show (decided to start watching 'cause of jensen ackles, since I'm a fan of supernatural). pilot was ok, but next 4 episodes were UNBEARABLE. it was so boring it took me one year to pick up this show again. from the final half of the first season on, it started being watchable. I was starting liking it. second season was the best, if you ask me. led the show to a really interesting path. just saw the finale and I can say I finished this show loving it. second season started in me a sympathy for the characters, even for max, whom I found so annoying and dislikeable in the first episodes. second season also features jensen ackles. second season also bring us JOSHUA, which is THE BEST character in this show. gotta LOVE joshua! he's just adorable. โ™ฅ what can I say? will I miss it? maybe... probably... sometime. will I remember it fondly? for sure. I'm just glad I finished it and, must say, I'm sad to see it go. goodbye, dark angel.

This show is a heart break to talk about, ended WAY too soon. It had so much potential and was absolutely amazing while it was on (especially the first season). I've read the books but it would have been the best to actually see it end rather then read.

avatar

didn't get enough seasons. if it had gotten another season, it might be a different story...

One of those shows that ended too early, left with so many answers. I just wished they put at least one extra season to it.

Awesome show!

Awesome show!

2013 still waiting for season 3

Don't remember what this show was even about anymore (pretty sure it was awesome). All I remember was crushing hard on Jessica Alba after like the first episode.
