Thanks for the thread, Starfriend

Alias is my favourite series of all time. Not only is Jennifer Garner the hottest thing that walked the planet (probably), the cast of Alias work together like clockwork. The storyline is great, the acting is great, and in Australia, it was on at a great time (8.30 Mondays).

Has anyone else watched all 5 seasons?

A definite 5/5

I liked the first 2 seasons, but in the end it just got tacky and boring, I would give it a 3/5

I am the darkness in your life, I am the light
I am the end of your tunnel, I am the beginning of your future
I am the end, your end. I am the path to your salvation.

Your bane, or your hope. You decide.

Alias was so good and so smart that it collapsed under it's own creative weight. I missed a lot of the 3rd season because of work, and I struggled hard to pick it back up again. A terrible fate for such a cool and smart series.

8/10

I think it's ok at best. I'd give it a 5/10 because it's ok to watch at times but nothing I'd really recommend.

I could never get really into Alias.It always seemed like a very cheap rip off of La Femme Nikita series.
So i give it 3/5

The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common; they don't alter their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit the views

I thought the end of the series was weak, and it got a bit too silly at times. Overall though, I would call it generally awesome.

Yeah, the ending was disappointing.

Everyone died. Jack. Irina. Sloane. Tom. That's about 1/2 the main cast.

But I guess they had to do that because Jennifer Garner had to go on maternity leave.
