Storyline

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.

Best show with best actor!!!
28 August 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is my all time favorite TV show!!!! Definitely a must see show!!! Do whatever you can to watch it!!! Find someone who taped it, buy the DVD's online, whatever, you will love this show!!! Brooke Langton does a truely awesome job playing Angela Bennett!!! And Eric Szmanda, is the best actor on TV!!! Jacob makes a great "supporting character/sidekick" for Angela. This is a great drama, showing more of the characters than the movie did. Here, you really get to know Angela, you get to see how much she wants to get rid of the Praetorians, but, that she still has a heart when it comes down to it. One really awesome show!!! Still my favorite after all these years!!!!
