i was watching a film starring Jessica Alba that reminded me how fine she was in the Tv series of Dark Angel, so did some researh on what the program was all about cuz i only watched it for sexy Jessica to kick a** not the storyline.
i came across 8 interesting things bout the program on Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Angel_
1. created by James Cameron
2. a genetically enhanced 9-year-old female super soldier who calls herself Max Guevara (Jessica Alba) escapes along with eleven others like herself from a Secret Government Institution
3. Set in a post-apocalyptic Seattle
4. Terrorists detonate an Electromagnetic Pulse Weapon in the atmosphere over the United States which destroys the vast majority of computer and communication systems, putting the country into utter chaos.
5. United States is now a 3rd World nation
6. underground cyber-journalist with the alias Eyes Only who helps fight corruption in the post-Pulse world
7. a major theme in the second season is the discovery of an even more deadly enemy than Lydecker or Renfro, namely a millennia-old breeding cult similar in structure to the Illuminati
8.Plot of the series finale episode "Freak Nation" that got canceled just b4 or not long after 911
Many thousands of years ago a Comet passed closely through the atmosphere of the earth, and deposited viral material that killed 97% of the human race. Some people survived that had a genetic predisposition, some kind of antibody or immunity. The great pyramids in Egypt were actually genetic repositories, preserving the DNA of the survivors. This cult was an ancient blood cult that passed on this genetic immunity to selective members to keep this antibody against the return of the comet (which was set to happen in Season 3) so that they'd survive for being genetically select. Everybody else on the planet would perish and the members of the cult would be there to rebuild civilization, and thus inherit the earth.
...anythang sound familiar...
