Since we’re in LA and like to talk all things “Hollywood” I just have to ask: who fed this woman a nasty pill before she wrote this review of Alias’ fourth season in the New York Times? Mind you, she goes on to basically rip on the entire series, and it makes you wonder why in the world does someone need to critique a television show like this. The best part is, she criticizes it for what it is and does best – being an over-the-top spy show.
I thought that the first episode (yay, two hours) was amazing…action packed. In the first then minutes Syndey (Jennifer Garner’s character) had like 5 different hair colors, faked getting kicked out of the CIA, joined a CIA Black Ops division, and had sex with hottie Vaughn. Now, if that ain’t some television, I don’t know what is. Sure, they eased up on the Rambaldi stuff but, really, how much more of that can you take? And her mother is dead…or is she? They might be skipping over a lot of that stuff now but trust me, they get back to it, they always do. It’s like JJ Abrams likes to start at the end and then go back and explain it.
Alias is fun television…it’s smart, sexy, and spy-like.
