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

Agent Jack Bristow
You should read Tippin's stuff. It's not so bad.
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." By midway through the second season, the opening narration (which by that point was no longer recited by 'Jennifer Garner') was replaced altogether with a recap of previous episodes. See more
