  • Jessica Alba , would be a cool Vamper ???

    Who would be perfect Vamper Actor wth jesica aLba. ??? Stuard TownSend. Who plays on Queen of Damned,,
  • On Dark Angel, eventually everyone gets a twin, first Ben/Alec, later on Max and this time it is everyone's favorite Dogboy Joshua..

    I get the strong impression that alot of the Dark Angel fans consider the introduction of Joshua as the show's "Jump the Shark" moment. (credit John Hein) So in this episode we double our pleasure/pain and are introduced to Joshua's evil twin, Isaac. Even watching the show several times over the years, I can't tell whether Joshua ruined the show or enhanced it. Thing is, I kinda like the "Big Fella" and his way of speaking etc.. But to the casual viewer (apparently DA didn't have enough of these) his presence can seem awfully hokey. The whole Beauty and the Beast vibe was apparent minus the physical attraction. But having a half man/half dog character was..well.. let's just say hard to pull off.

    This episode is actually fast paced and has a pretty good red herring, although even the first time viewing I was pretty sure Joshua wasn't the one on the killing spree. Season 2 was too heavy on mutants and genetic freaks, I think if they focused less on the FOTW and more on the interplay between Max and Logan things might have gone differently, but it's all for nauht now I guess. I am such a fan of this show and the missed opportunity and vast potential is really disappointing, knowing that we barely knew 'ye.

    This episode gets ***.5 out of 4 stars.moreless
  • joshua gets blamed for taling tungs

    this one was good, it had alot of alec in it with made it extremly funny, him trying to take that ball, him coming to work at jam pony, or what ever max's works name is, and he got the job cuz he used to fight, those weird metal guys looked cool and so did their freaky little girl friend that went to see alec, his fight with them was funny, he was on the phone and still kicked their buts, too bad they know hes a transginic. i felt really bad for joshua in this one, he had to kill his own brother, but his bro was bad and i am glad it was him and not max, but all the same, i was sad when joshua was caught and they beat him up.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Alec: Hey, I was willing to deal. You should've let go when you had the chance.
      Max: I should've let your head explode when I had the chance.

    • Logan (about Alec blowing Max's heist): And the nerve to rip off what you were rightfully stealing!
      Max: Exactly. It's like he's a child who doesn't know right from wrong.

    • Max: If by friend you mean someone who'd just as soon drop an anvil on you, then welcome.
      Alec: You don't mean that.
      Max: Find me an anvil and watch me go.

    • Max (about Alec): Try spending an afternoon with him. He'll drive you crazy with his laughing -- and his talking and his breathing.

    • Max (about Joshua): Any way you slice it, the cops got the wrong guy.
      Logan: Guess what? It doesn't matter. They've got a dog-man in custody. They don't care if he's been murdering cops or herding sheep. They just want to know what the hell he is.

    • Joshua (about Isaac): Little brother...smaller, gentle. Father said 'protect him'. I tried.
      Max: You did. You were a good brother.

    • Alec: It's just 'cause she's hot, you know.
      Logan: What is?
      Alec: Everything. Everything she gets away with. You honestly think we'd be down here in this moldy dump looking for God-knows-what if she were ugly?
      Logan: We're down here to give Max a hand.
      Alec (laughing): You're so whipped.

    • Eddie (getting in Alec's face): What's a poofter like you need with five hundred bucks, anyway, eh?
      Alec (in a British accent): Actually, I need it for a ride on your mum.

    • Third Steelhead: Uh, Eddie, we're just wondering--what's in the boxes?
      Eddie: Livers and kidneys.
      Third Steelhead: You mean--we've been hefting these things around just so you can make some nasty English pie?

    • Original Cindy (regarding Alec): He's from Manticore, huh? Say what you want--they sure know how to make 'em pretty.

    • Max: Read my lips, pretty boy. Get a life, get a job, and stop sticking your nose into mine. Don't make me kick your ass!
      Alec: You know, this whole tough-chick act thing is really unbecoming. "I'm gonna bounce you on your ass. I'm gonna smack your bitch head." It's so unfeminine.

    • At the beginning of this episode Max and Alec are attempting to steal a baseball that is in a display case labeled "September 17, 2009 Home Run No. 756." Max identifies the home run record setter as Sammy Sosa. At the time this episode originally aired, the home run record was still held by Hank Aaron (755 home runs). In actuality, the home run record was broken by Barry Bonds, when on August 7, 2007 Barry hit home run number 756.
