Sydney Bristow is a young, athletic, college graduate who was recruited her freshman year as a secret agent for SD-6, a top-secret branch of the CIA. After a few years -- after Sydney confides her lifestyle to her boyfriend, the evil head of SD-6 -- Arvin Sloan, has him killed. Sydney learns that SD-6 is part of a rogue international agency called the Alliance of 12, out to rule the world. She becomes a double agent, working with the real CIA to bring down SD-6 with the assistance of her handler, Michael Vaughn, and her estranged father Jack Bristow -- also a double agent. Along the way, Sydney fights various rival agents, rival terrorist groups, and traitors all the while keeping her cloak-and-dagger lifestyle a secret from her friends. (Season 1) Written by
I found Alias on one of those top shows on Netflix nobody is watching. I watched the pilot and 6 episodes later went to bed primed for more. I am surprised I had never heard of it given the first two episodes launched the viewer into the world of Sidney at an intense pace, like grabbing a bullet train at full speed and trying to hang on. I'm only half way through the show, but I can't imagine the show self destructing. The pace of Sidney's missions are insanely fast, but that is part of what makes the show exciting. Things happen fast, change fast, and surprises are woven into the story line on a regular basis that are of large magnitude and game changing it is amazing that the show maintains its story with the constant ground breaking changes and shocking revelations. Realistic? Who knows, I'm not exactly in the position to judge the accuracy of a show about the life of being a double agent. Yes, it is a bit unbelievable that a group could fool its participants into believing they are part of the CIA when they are actually acting in complete counter actions to the CIA but then again they are supposed to be black ops under the radar and by definition without the oversight that the CIA has making them buy that the CIA can't acknowledge them because they aren't aware of them. So while it has its stretches it has an incredible pace, is exciting and Jennifer Grarner a treat to watch even though until seeing her in this show is really the first time I've really liked her. In costume she comes off fantastic in her diverse characters and pulls the off great. They make the skinny little woman look capable of taking down 5 foreign intelligence officers as the fights are choreographed to be at a speed and her actions with precision that she has the skills to pull it off. I have read some harsh slams about the show, but it is the best show I've never heard of and am grateful for those lists of good shows nobody watches because I have found several very good shows that may not have won rave reviews but for me are top notch and this is one of them. Might be old, but as I waited for Season 3 of Arrow to come out the day Season 4 started it was a great filler to give me a show to watch that was difficult to fall asleep watching from the adrenaline rush. I love it!
