Other than the Max v. Alec fight, the funny gay innuendos about Normal and the telecoercion concept itself, there wasn't much else to enjoy about this episode. This one, much like the last episode, seemed to be just fillers. The seasonal storyline isn't advanced and we haven't seen Agent White for a couple of episodes now. I think this is one reason why season 2 didn't pull in the viewers the way season 1 did. The whole storyline becomes muddled in these filler episodes that while funny aren't really the reason why someone would have tuned-in to watch Dark Angel. The are dozens of shows better suited for comedy than Dark Angel (Seinfeld, King of Queens, etc.). Did the producers of the show really think people would be drawn to Dark Angel for comedy relief?
This was such a cute episode. We play with aesthetics a lot in this episode dealing with gangsters. All of their accessories and surroundings are out of the 1940's. One of the gangsters has the cutest girlfriend named Mia who is a transgenic who can control other people. From the very beginning you wonder what she is up to. Although it's obvious she is manipulating others and is very powerful, she's so sweet and cute that it's hard to dislike her. She sets up Max and Logan to do a broadcast tipping off the head of the mafia and Alex and Max face off in the ring.
i really like this one alot. mia was really cool and i liked her vocie and how happy she was all the time, which is weird cuz that stuff ussually annoys me but it really worked well with her. i liked how she got stuff out of people and she would tell them what happened, like when max slipped in the shower and it hurt like the dickins, so funny max would never say that normally. i also liked how she didnt mess with there lifes to much and didnt really do any thing drastic, she was really nice. and their bosses dream about alec was disturbing. and i liked when max went to fight alec but i didnt like how she used such a cheep shot to beat him, it was kinda dissapionting.
I LOVED this episode!! The storyline was good, the interactions between the characters were great, and the scenes between Max and Logan were more like they were in season 1-- sexually intense, but not morose. It also was completely devoid of really weird transgenics. We were simply introduced to a transgenic from the psy-ops division at Manticore, who was designed to excel in tele-coersion. All she had to do was tilt her head and look at someone funny, then she could make them do anything. And the things she made people do!!! At one point, she got Logan and Alec together to express to each other how they felt about the other. Of course, Mia (the transgenic), was putting the words in their mouths, but they ended up giving each other this big hug! Max about flipped when she saw them!
Other favorite moments from the show: Logan taking a full-length look at Max ready to go under cover and saying, "Fuhgeddaboudit..." (in response to her asking how she looks.) The look that he gave her was so cute. And while Max was getting ready, Logan was briefing her on the history of this group of people, and there was some humorous interaction between the two of them.
After Mia convinces Alec to go back to cage-fighting, Max gets in the ring to fight him to make sure he'd lose. Their dialogue along with ther fight is hilarious!
All in all, this episode extremely worth watching! There's too many memorable moments and quotes to try to catch them all here. Just watch the episode!!
