Brief Synopsis:
Streamlining Dark Angel’s second season down to a more enjoyable, cohesive narrative. Focuses on the X-series characters whenever possible, and jettisons most of the ‘monster of the week’ stuff.
Intention:
To make season 2 tolerable to my way of thinking.
Additional Notes:
Your way to achieve your intention: Collected together only the material I found tolerable, then stringing the elements around to a point where they form one single storyline without appearing choppy or unrelated.
Release Information
AVI/MKV
Editing Details:
Cuts: I stopped keeping count, but there’s over 1,000 changes/cuts made to the original material. There’s not a scene that hasn’t been altered in some way.

The episodes used in the edit are:

0201 Designate This.
0202 Bag ‘Em.
0203 Proof of Purchase.
0204 Radar Love.
0206 Two.
0208 Gill Girl.
0209 Medium is the Message.
0213 Harbor Lights.
0217 Hello, Goodbye.
0218 Dawg Day Afternoon.
0219 She Ain’t Heavy.
0220 Love Among the Runes.
0221 Freak Nation.

Some episodes are featured heavily, others not so much. Some of the episodes contributed as little as one scene (and in one case, only a single shot.) Episodes 1, 2, and 21 play out much as they do normally (albeit truncated) with the remaining episodes trimmed and intertwined to try to keep all the retained storylines running to their conclusion. The final cut is quite long, as I’ve tried to retain as much of the season as I can stomach, rather than making it as short as possible. Some seemingly minor storylines needed to be kept for later revelations/resolutions.

Many shots/audio are altered to either fit into the new continuity or to simply remove goofs from the original footage, and colour correction was performed on the whole film. Several pieces of new score have been added throughout the narrative, as well as nine new songs.

After all the editing was done, the film was reframed shot by shot to maximize the new aspect ratio.

There is also a specially made, eight-minute recap of the climax of season 1. This is included as part of the film on the AVI version, but is a selectable option on the DVD version.
