I'm re watching all the Dark Angel eps as I recently got the DVDs. Since I first saw it air on Channel 5 in the UK one episode really did stick with me, it was this one.
Firstly from a sci-fi perspective it's so interesting how complex mathematics can predict the future. That's all Brain did all in his head.
The actual story was one of the best of the season too because it shows how nice of a woman Max is. Brain had a crush on her growing up and he reveals this to Max when they are looking through photos. Rather than be disgusted by it, or ignoring it, Max just acts cool and sweet about it. The ending especially was poignant, Brain decides to save Max's life going against all his genetic programming and living on emotions. That is the very opposite of cold, hard, mathematical calculations. Logan's showing of Brain on eyes only and Max's reaction topped off a very emotional episode.
The episode perfectly illustrates how Max, despite her beauty doesn't care about what people look like in order to care for them. It's the same with Joshua. What others may find frightening or repulsive Max is fine with.
i loved this episode. brain was so sweet, and his crush on max seemed more based on her personality than her beuty, which on the whole was just nice, i felt so bad for him though cuz no one noticed him, he would just stand out in the middle of the whole thing and they just run right past him. poor guy he was talking to his neabor and she didnt even notice, the begining when he helped the kid was cool, when he was on the moter cycle with max was just halrious. i was happy when she described him as magnifacant cuz he really was, even alec thought so, i was sad whe he died, but im glad he was put on tv at the end. alec's comment about what do they see in logan was just too funny, one of the best lines ever. the rest of the story wasnt to memerable, but it was still good.
Brain was just a very weird and yet superb. The explanation of what he was designed for was great. I love his obsessment with snacks and his ability to uncover who "Eyes Only" was. He wasn't a high power killing machine like so many others. He was all mind and chemical affect...it was tight.
