Based on the 1995 Sandra Bullock movie, this 1998 television series stars Melrose Place's Brooke Langton in the role of Angela Bennett. 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.

"Interesting show to know about"
9 September 2006 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

I never knew this TV series existed until a few months ago when I saw the entire series available on DVD at my local video rental. I am a fan of the movie of 'The Net' with Sandra Bullock so I was interested strait away when I saw this TV series. I found this TV series quite enjoyable, it has the same kind theme as in films like 'The Fugitive' and 'North By Northwest'. Laura Langton is brilliant in her role as Angela Bennett, she is a great actress in fact I think she is a lot prettier than Sandra Bullock. This TV series has the same basic plot as in the feature film. Angela Bennett is a computer genius and software troubleshooter. She comes across a program she was never meant to see. A program used by a secret organization known as the Praetorians who use the Internet to manipulate world events. And before Angela knows it her identity has been deleted and she has been given a new identity "Elizabeth Marks" a cyber-terrorist on the FBI's most wanted list. So Angela travels from place to place trying to avoid both the the Praetorians and the police and FBI. While at the same time trying to thwart the Praetorians attempts to disrupt society, trying to stay free and alive and ultimately bring down the Praetorians.

Angela Bennett is also assisted by this mysterious online email contact known only as the "Sourcerer" who is voiced by Tim Curry and Angela communicates with him via an email chat room. So I think this TV series is very interesting to know about. If you liked 'The Net' movie with Sandra Bullock then I highly recommend this TV series.
