Can it get any better!?By Sunshine Sally from SD-6, London , 15 Sep 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]JJ Abrams, the genuis behind this show, proves that the arc for Sydney and the gang is very clear in his mind. This season Jennifer Garner's Sydney gets to work alongside her sister Mia Maestro. Victor Garber is still the coolest man on TV as Sydney's dad. The ubersexy, kickboxing sisters blast the screen with their moves, the vilains are more evil than ever, including Ron Rifkin's Arvin Sloane - oh he is trying... but can he be trusted. Can anyone! This is espionage at its best. And to top it, dear Marshall, the IT guy, gets more screen time (I love him!). Interesting to find out where the story will go next season with a pregnant Jennifer Garner... Check out JJ Abrams' new show Lost for more outstanding entertainment. Either this man has the creative mind of a genius or he has the best writing team in Hollywood! OK enough with the praise - just watch his work people!

Alias Season 4: Still have no IdeaBy a customer from Wednesbury , 05 Feb 2009You can tell the writer for Lost, started here. With the ever increasing plot twists, that get more muddled each time. People keeping secrets that you know will come out and cause more trouble etc etc. I like Alias but rather than make it like a female James Bond, but the Rambludi conspiracy is know over the top, what happens at the end of this series is just stupid. I like some of the plot twists but a lot of it seems to be the same (a generic bad guy with what appears to be no motive or cause has something and Sydney must dress up in a sexy way to get in, some realtionship trouble with Vaughn, her Dad, sister and everyone is wary of Sloane). The very end looked like it just going to rake up old stories and say things didn't hppen as you thought.
Attention to detail !By a customer from Retford , 07 Aug 2008Having enjoyed this series so far, I'm always impressed by their attention to detail when supposedly in non US countries. Until now that is, when watching episode 2 of disc one, when the team are in London on a mission. As usual Sydney has to make an emergency escape and her father turns up in a police car to whisk her away, nothing unusual there you might say until you notice that the police car was a very, very old Ford Zephyr or Zodiac last used by the Z cars units of yesteryear !! The oldies will know the one I mean.
Surely they could have done better than this. Anyway still like the series despite this appalling lack of attention to detail.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I have watched alias from the first series and was absolutley hooked!! I am female but i love action/ esponniage type shows. I have told so many people what they been missing when it was on and truly believe it never got the hype it shoud have - well not in uK anyway. It was given obscure showing times and no advertisement, which is a huge shame as i feel it was one best series on TV!! The cliffhangers are unbelievable and every episode you are shocked in some way!! J.J Abrams never fails to make a twist and his work is far from predictable!
for you girls - their is romance between Sydney and a few characters and plenty eye candy! Boys- its not all about Sydneys life, 80% is pure action and fighting!!
Brilliant gadgets and of course alias'! Somethingnew every episode to keep you interested!
If you don't like gore then don't get- things like Kebab scures pinning hands to tables and fingers being cut off won't appeal to you.
Surprisingly enough the majority of what happens is believable and special effects are great! Have to say though the rambaldni story line gets bit far fetched, but hey Im sure you watched worse!
If you like Bourne Identity, Supremecy and Mission Impossible ( naturally as JJ Abrams wrote this) then get this!
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I really enjoyed seasons 1 & 2. Series 3 was OK, but season 4 is a mess. Plotlines in Alias always were liable to enter the digestive system at the wrong end, and that was part of the fun. But the writers seem to have stopped caring now; making things up as they go along. The result is a story "arc" that traverses the digestive system several dozen times in the wrong direction, then pins a live frog on its black suit, stands on a bucket and says "bibble" to the viewers.
Nevertheless, the central members of the cast battle on regardless - although Dixon must be getting tired of playing the "redshirt" every other episode, and most of the time Nadia & Weiss just loiter around like spare parts. Shame because I think Weiss is funny and they really should have given him more to do.
I hear it picks up again in Season 5 - let's hope so. Although, I would not be surprised to discover that Pam Ewing dreamt the whole of season 4.
Alias 4By a customer from Tiverton , 23 Mar 2008After a long break from watching series three to Series 4 i was worried i would have forgotton story line but as soon as i had series four i was hooked couldn't stop watching it . Just like a good book didn't want discs to end. Cannot wait for all other episodes to arrive.
