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
Jennifer Garner's opening narration which was used throughout Season 1 was literally phoned in. She was working on location and had to read it down the phoneline to J.J. Abrams who was recording it on the other end. See more »
When Sydney is seen on a speedboat in Greece during the first
season, she asks a man on another boat for help. The caption reads (DVD) "Speaking Russian", and actually she is speaking Swedish. What she says is more or less "Ursäkta mig. Min båt... Kan ni hjälpa mig? jag har ingen bensin kvar," and then "Tack så mycket.". = (Excuse me. My boat... Can you help me? I'm out of gas," and then "Thank you so much." See more »

Opening credits generally do not appear until after the first act, 10-15 minutes into the episode, an unusually late appearance for an American TV series. See more »
From the very first episode to the series' final moment, 'Alias' never failed to keep me on the edge of my seat. Dramatic, funny, thrilling, action-packed and smart, it brings you through so many twists and turns that you may have to come up for air once in a while, but will undoubtedly find yourself diving in for more. Three years after its conclusion 'Alias' still remains my favorite show, thanks to a stellar cast, gripping score, intelligent writers and great production values; with the lovely Jennifer Garner being the glue that holds it all together, and of course, the brainchild behind it all, J.J. Abrams. Part James Bond, part Indiana Jones, Garner's Sydney Bristow is a hero for the ages. 'Alias' is at once epic, heart-warming, exciting, and ultimately unforgettable; a true gem in the history of serialized television.
