    Hi,

    Been watching Season 1 of Alias over holidays. I have never seen a show that makes you watch the next episode, the cliff hangers are great.

    Just watched 'The Box 1 and 2', with Quentin Tarantino in it, this is a homage to Die Hard, as the set up was very similar, also the terrorist van in the car park had 'McTiernan' logo on it with snow. John McTiernan directed Die Hard.

    Just found it funny when Quentin was fighting Sydney. He was kicking her arse.

    You might also have noticed that the ship "Alba Varden" where Will get's his envelope is the same one from Lethal Weapon 2

    I would have got into this show, but for one serious problem...

    She or someone else, got captured and interogated in nearly every episode i saw. She must be the worst spy ever :)

    This was during season one and I only watched about 10 episodes, but it definetly put me off.

    "God! Someones been captured! here we go again..."

    :)

    Spaz if you actually watch it properly and preserve thats actually far from the case

    The story is far from "monster of the week" style of the likes of early Buffy or Smallville - im still working way through Season Two and the story is still the same one and still going

    Not sure how many captures there have been - but genuine mission failure captures are very few and far between

    One thing I have to say though (and not in a gay way) but MORE Miles - a great Character - wait til you hear him speak Ewok :D

    Absolutely brilliant show. I believe Jennifer Garner (Sydney Bristow) has won many awards for her acting.

    Just finished the second season. Can't see a release date anywhere for the third season, although they are about half way through the 3rd season on US tv.

    Hopefully by the summer, as the season 2 cliffhanger has left me hungry for more!

    :)
