    A season highlight, "Female Trouble" is Dark Angel at its best – complicated, intriguing, funny and action packed. Max and Logan have come to a stage where their relationship no longer grates. When a show throws so much tension between two leads only for them to get all luvvy-duvvy, it takes away a certain playful element. Thankfully, their situation, due to Logan's self-loathing, keeps things relatively light-hearted at just the right moments. Jace gets a meaty introduction (a nice change from Zack and Tinga's episodes) and the snippets we get of a harsher Manticore make Lydecker all the more alluring, ya know, in that sociopathic way. Unfortunately, the storyline suggest that this season's big bad answers to a bigger, badder person which really pisses me off on TV shows (Angel season four, I'm looking at you!). So Dark Angel manages another confident outing. I'd love to award this episode a ten, but something is missing, and so we have yet another "almost 10-er" from season one.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • TRIVIA: In this episode, Logan's birthday is revealed as November 11, 1988.

    • TRIVIA: Dr. Vertes reveals she worked on series X3 through the preliminary stages of X7s while she was at Manticore.

    • TRIVIA: It's revealed in this episode that Jace, the 10th X5 mentioned so far, stayed behind when the other X5s escaped in '09 and was reprogrammed and simplified in the neuropsych department.

    • When Logan falls and drops his phone, there is no battery in it - due to stylistic future phones or goof?

    • When Jace sees Max from the skylight window, her hair is down. When she breaks through and the two begin fighting, it's tied back.

    • Vertes is blond and Max is a brunette, since Jace knew what Vertes looked like, and knew Max was protecting her - would she really fall for that?

    • Logan lives in the penthouse, which is the apartment on the top floor, so why would there be a woman living above him?

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Mrs. Moreno: Maybe it'd be better if I just died.
      Logan: Well, let's not talk nonsense, okay?

    • Max: I better bounce before I lose my job.

    • Max: You're a human being with free will.
      Jace: Easy for you to say. You're not in restraints.

    • Max: X5s don't just roll over without a fight. What's wrong with her?
      Dr. Vertes: She's pregnant.

    • Max: Then how come an X5 assassin tried to kill Dr. Vertes just a little while ago?
      Logan: What? Is she all right?
      Max: Yes. Thanks to moi, her transgenetic guardian angel, she's fine.

    • Original Cindy: I'm telling you, girl, he's probably just out being a doggy-dog.
      Max: You make it sound like that's the only thing guys ever think about which I don't happen to believe is true.
      (Sketchy opens the refrigerator door)
      Sketchy: So she opens the door to sign for the package. No bra. (Handing a soda to another rider and giving Herbal the knuckle to knuckle) Oh yeah.
      Original Cindy: I rest my case.

    • Original Cindy: I know you don't want to hear it sugar, but it's what they do. Just like grabbing themselves when they're anxious. (Grabbing a soda out of the cooler)

    • Original Cindy: Never underestimate the thoughtlessness and insensitivity of the three-legged gender.

    • Jace: Because I am dumb. I am so damn dumb that it would take ten acts of divine providence to raise me to the sublime height of blissful ignorance, sir!

    • Max: Getting knocked up's a real career-ender back at Manticore.

    • Logan: Just consider the possibility that not everything and everyone involved with Manticore is evil incarnate.
      Max: We'll agree to disagree on that.

    • Original Cindy: By the way, some of those black-helicopter storm-trooper folks stopped by, asking about a transgenic teenage killing machine. I said you were out.

    • Max: Donald Lydecker, wherever you are, you can kiss my genetically-engineered ass! Zack, Brin, Jondy, Tinga, and everyone... happy anniversary, kids.
