The first few episodes of the first season do not have the "My name is Sydney Bristow..." introductory monologue; neither does the later season 1 episode "Q & A."

This is JJ Abrams' 2nd big hit after Felicity and launches him on his way to being one of the biggest name in Hollywood.
It's a simple concept of a hot supermodel 007 Jenny Bond in a secret worldwide spy organization. It's completely unreal fantasy. There is nothing but popcorn fun here. The problem is that as this fantasy universe gets rolling. It made less and less sense. It becomes less popcorn fun as it try to jam in more seriousness. Eventually, the show collapses under the weight of it's story.
The good thing is that it introduced the world to Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper. Now can somebody tell me what happened to Michael Vartan?
