Angela is a computer hacker who specializes in debugging systems. On one of her routine assignments she stumbles on a plot by a secret society called the Praetorians to control the world through computer systems. Led by Trelawny, the Praetorians erase Angela's existence and replace her identity with that of Elizabeth Marx, a criminal and fugitive from the law. Aided by individuals she finds along the way and by a mystery computer email contact known as Sorcerer, Angela strives to foil the Praetorian's plans, save the world and get her life back.

Great show!
20 June 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing show! It's too bad they canceled it after only the first season! If only they'd continued it, imagine what could have happened?! Specially between Angela and Jacob. Compared to the movie it was based on, I liked the show much better because she had constant help that didn't die early in the show, and you get to find out who her invisible online helper is, which will surprise anyone who hasn't see the show yet. Another character is added near the end, an FBI agent who becomes a constant character. I won't tell you why, since I don't want to spoil it for those who haven't seen it. The show is now finally out on DVD in other countries and will, hopefully, make it to the states. All fans of the show should make sure the DVD releases here in the states. Over all, it was a great show, and her sidekick, now in the show CSI, was amazing too! lol, great show, see it when it comes out on DVD! It's a must see!
