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.

A neat show, but it needs more energy and excitement.
19 January 1999 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

This show has the potential to become the next "Nowhere Man," or rather, "Nowhere Woman". Brook Langhton plays Angela Bennett in this television version of the 1995 movie, "The Net," which starred Sandra Bullock. Angela comes off as very likable and friendly. And the concept of an erased identity is always interesting. However, there are some problems. The enemies, a group of computer terrorists, don't come off as sinister or dangerous enough. They always send the same agent after Angela, and each time, he proves himself most incompetent. There is never a feeling of urgency or fear for Angela. The stories need to become more serious and threatening, while maintaining the wry sense of humour. It has a good lead character and a great actress, and some surprising twists in its story. Hopefully, improvement will begin as the first season progresses. All in all, a neat show, but it needs more energy and excitement.
