Dark Angel is an American science fiction television series created by James Cameron and Charles H. Eglee and set in a post-apocalyptic Seattle which chronicles the life of Max Guevara (X5-452), a genetically enhanced super-soldier who, after escaping from a covert government biotech/military facility as a child, tries to lead some semblance of a normal life.

The series aired in the USA on Fox from 3 October, 2000 to 3 May, 2002. There are 43 hour-long episodes in two seasons.

Dark Angel originally aired in South Africa on SABC3, from 10 August, 2001 to 9 August, 2002. It later aired on TopTV's Fox Entertainment channel.

See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 1

In 2009, a genetically enhanced, 9-year-old female super-soldier who calls herself Max Guevara (Jessica Alba), escapes along with 11 others like herself from a secret government institution, codenamed Manticore, where they were born, raised and trained to be soldiers and assassins.

On June 1, 2009, months after Max's escape, terrorists detonate an electromagnetic pulse weapon in the atmosphere over the U.S., which destroys the vast majority of computer and communication systems, throwing the country into utter chaos.

The first season begins 10 years later in 2019, as it follows the life of the now 19-year-old Max as she struggles to search for her Manticore brothers and sisters.

In a United States which is now barely more than a Third World nation, she tries to live her life, evade capture, and learn to trust and love.

She becomes involved with Logan Cale (Michael Weatherly), an underground cyber-journalist with the alias Eyes Only, who recruits her to help fight corruption in the post-Pulse world, while at the same time she makes a living as a bicycle messenger at a courier company named Jam Pony along with her friends Original Cindy (Valarie Rae Miller), Herbal Thought (Alimi Ballard) and Sketchy (Richard Gunn).

Other X-5s are periodically introduced, most significantly Zack (William Gregory Lee), the unit leader and eldest brother.

The Manticore hunt for the escaped X-5s is led by Colonel Donald Lydecker (John Savage), who is ousted at the end of the season by the even more ruthless Elizabeth Renfro (Nana Visitor).
