Storyline

In a future of political, economic and moral collapse, a genetically enhanced superhuman prototype named Max escapes from military confines and dwells amidst the decadent underground street life of *Seattle* to avoid government agents who want to bring her back into the fold. Searching for others of her kind who were scattered in the aftermath of her escape, Max encounters Logan, an idealistic cyber-journalist battling repression and corruption in post-apocalypse America. Eventually, Logan calls her to the highest part of her being and Max becomes his samurai as the pair takes on the ruthless power-brokers of the new millennium. Max and Logan's odyssey leads them closer to the secret of her past, deepening and complicating their relationship in the process. Written by Ronos

Trivia

When the character of Alec was conceived for the series' season 2, the writers knew they wanted him to be a somewhat amoral X5 with a sharp wit. They chose to immediately hire Jensen Ackles for the role, who had previously played a rogue serial killing X5 in a season 1 episode. They explained the actor's return in a different role by saying that Alec was his former, and deceased, character's twin. Although they had only seen Ackles as a dramatic actor in his previous roles, everyone in the production was pleased to see that Ackles had a natural talent as a comedian. See more »

User Reviews

Wish it could have survived, but needed better writers.
12 September 2002 | by (U.S.) – See all my reviews

The pilot was awesome, and the first season was great. We couldn't wait to watch it every Friday. Jessica was excellent for the part and played it extremely well. The supporting cast also did a great job, and the characters and plot was working very well.

When the first season ended, we couldn't wait for the second season. Unfortunately, as the second season progressed, it appeared that the story writers were running out of steam. It seemed to me that they made a wrong turn with the plot along the way, and they couldn't seem to find a way to get back on track. It was an awesome show, it definately had potential, and it is unfortunate that it had to end like it did.
