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
In Joke: In the pilot episode, when Sydney is caught sneaking around at the party, she lies to the guard, by saying that she will get in trouble with her boss "Ron", if he finds out she'd been drinking. Her boss at SD-6, Arvin Sloane, is played by Ron Rifkin. See more »
In season 3, when transitioning to Sloan's office, the images shown are supposed to be of Zurich, Switzerland, but the distinctive Munttoren, canal tour boats and the yellow trams of Amsterdam spoil the illusion. See more »
According to creator 'Jeffrey Abrams', the background of the words "Alias" in the opening credits come from home movies of his family. Also in the opening credits, the "Rambaldi" symbol is visible for a split-second. See more »
Alias has to be one of the best shows aired on television. Its fun, its sharp, its intense, and you just gotta love it. Though the story line did get side tracked and was most of the time too confusing for new viewers to catch on, Alias was a weekly ritual for fans. Jennifer Garner was gorgeous and the genius JJ Abrams himself never ceased to wow fans with action and thrills. One of the best things about the show I believe was the way Sydney (Jennifer Garner) was forced to balance her life of being an agent and keeping her cover. How she handles love, betrayal, and lies makes the show an absolute joy to watch. My advise to those people who have heard of this show but are looking for opinions......rent the first season and you'll be hooked to watched to watch the following 4. Happy watching!
