All I remember at this point is that season two sucked, but season one was mostly awesome.

The Berrisford Agenda from season two was outstanding. It was the best episode of season two. It didn't focus on Max, so I don't know if that's significant. Alex was the best addition to season two.

Re: Best episodes of Dark Angel?

It's been so long since I've seen it, I don't remember the best episodes, but I do remember I liked this series a lot and was bummed it got canceled. I wanted to see the story further develop, oh well.

Re: Best episodes of Dark Angel?

I can't remember specifics of episodes, either (hard to believe the show is 10 years old!). I do, however, feel the first season was, as a whole, really good, but they decided to fix what wasn't broken for Season 2 and as a result they wrecked it. I watched 3 episodes of the second season and it's one of the only cases where a show I loved one year completely turned me off almost instantly the next, to the point where I had a chance to buy Season 2 on DVD for a few bucks not long ago and I didn't even think at that price it was worth the money. And that's even considering the fact that Nana Visitor of DS9 and Ashley Scott who later starred in Birds of Prey and Jericho were involved in that second year and I'm a big fan of both actresses.

Your mileage may vary; I've heard people say they prefer Season 2 over Season 1, as well.

Re: Best episodes of Dark Angel?

I thought season 1 was great. In season 2, they decided to expand the scope of Manticore and the consequences for bringing the organization down. I also thought the arc story they were developing, that the transgenics (specifically, Max) had some supernatrual cultish connections was great. I still wonder where they were going with that.

The pilot remains my favorite season 1 episode. Loved the two episodes o the Red series and the season 1 finale, "And Jesus Brought a Casserole". I liked the addition of Alec in season 2 as much as I disliked every minute of screen time for the Jar Jar Binks-esque, "Dog Boy". Overall though, I liked season 2, but for different reasons than I liked season 1.

I like the one where she's hunted down by her twin and they have a big girly catfight

The Halloween episode from season two is probably my favorite episode of the show.

Season two episode five, "Boo".

All the Manticore creatures and what not are able to roam the streets of Seattle openly on Halloween.

Yeah, I think it was mostly Dog-Boy that turned me off the show. I too only have season 1 on DVD, and don't care to get 2.

I think the real question is could Max stop the Replicators?

Did they ever explain the connection between the Manticore symbol and the cult that White was apart of?

I'm on episode 3 now so the season is just starting.

It's still a great show. I can't believe it's 10 years old.

Such a shame it was canceled.
