Dark Angel: C.R.E.A.M. - Red  
I had a little bit of a mini-marathon as I breeze through Dark Angel. My comments will be brief since the episodes all kind of blend together in my head right now.



C.R.E.A.M.

I didn't like this one so much. The funny parts with Original Cindy and Max were good. I don't really have much to say about it. LOL

411 on the DL

Now this one I enjoyed. Any episode with Zack, I have decided I love. I really enjoyed the parallel on his style vs Max's style. I kind of felt bad for him, but his protective nature for her was really sweet, even if a bit misguided.

Prodigy

Loved this one. Lots of Lydecker so lots of fun. I really loved the entire set up on this one. And to have him right there at the conference and not know it was her? That was really cool. Felt bad for the little boy, though.

Cold Comfort

This is another one of my faves. I think this one, Prodigy, and (surprisingly) Heat have been my faves so far. Oh, and Pollo Loco which I've already seen. Anyway, anything that has to do with the kids that escaped or Max's past intrigue me, so this hit all the right places. It was angsty and heartfelt. Love that so many of the X-5's are having massive issues. Lydecker continues to rock.

Blah Blah Woof Woof

This wasn't a bad episode. Zack made it instantly better. But they sort of lost me with that stupid dreamy dance scene. I was enjoying it just fine until we hit that spot. I like ship and romance just as much as the next girl, but that just struck me as extremely cheesy. The scene between her and Logan was fine without having the evening gown competition inserted inside. But I enjoyed everything else about the ep.

Out

I liked it. I enjoyed the whole Eyes Only reveal and how Bling and Max worked together. That was interesting.

Red

Okay, I didn't really like this episode. I like humor, but it felt weird. I think Jessica Alba does humor just as well as her pouty angst, but Bruno really annoyed me. I liked the scenes with his kid, but I don't know. This episode didn't really ring true to me.

So, overall I'm really enjoying how the series builds on itself so far. I like that we keep going back to old episodes for plot points and I enjoy anything that deals with the escaped X-5's and Lydecker the most. At times, I feel like the show is trying to figure out what it wants to be: comedy, drama, romance, and doesn't quit pull off just the right balance. But despite that, I am enjoying the show way way more than I thought I would. It's too bad I missed the fannish boat on this one!

I'm glad you're enjoying the series so far. It's a good show, fairly solid, but with it's issues. ;)

Let me know if you want to watch any eps together. I'm more than happy to spam people while I watch tv. *g*

LOL

Sure, maybe we can work something out. I do want to watch some more this week.

But yeah. The show is way better than I thought it would be. It's got issues, but what show doesn't? I'm thinking I'll probably even like S2 despite the changes, but we'll see.

Yes, I think you're absolutely right. I enjoyed it too, though.

I think a lot of shows do this. It takes them some time to figure out what they really want to be.

It's too bad this show sort of buckled under its own weight and the execs and all.

*enjoys it while she can*

Oh I'm SO glad you started watching this series!

I'll come back and give a more coherent response to your reviews later today.

I have to dash into work, bah.

*hugs*

Yay! I'm loving it. I can't wait to get to Jensen though in S2 *is anxious* And I know the SciFi Channel is running a marathon of S2 eps today, too. I'm sooo tempted, but I really want to watch in order.

But even though my motivation for watching this was for JA, I'm still enjoying the show itself which makes me very happy.

Looking forward to your thoughts.

*stares at your icon and is mesmerized* What is that from?

It's from a Dark Angel gag reel on one of the second season dvds I believe.

I made the mistake of turning the TV on while I ate breakfast...and discovered a good JA episode is how they started the marathon out. It's too nice to sit in front of the TV all day, but...

I have been soooo tempted all day, but I've been good. I need to do it in order or else I might get lost in the pretty that is JA.

*is glad to not have such restrictions*

After a round of unsuccessful boutique shopping attempts, I decided it was better to stay at home and watch the pretty than to go into stores and be ignored while looking at pretty, highly overpriced things. ;)

Mmmm yay Dark Angel. Funny you should post about it, it's on marathon on scifi today. w00t! Love Jessica Alba as a brunette. She's so smokin'. I love the cameos on the show as well, the guy from the First Wave made a guest appearance on the show, as did his side-kick. *nostalgic* That was a good show too.

Jessica Alba was very very pretty in this series.

And I know about the marathon. I wanna watch! But I'm trying to be good and watch the episodes in order.
