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
The series offers conflicting details in character Nadia Santos's backstory that cannot be reconciled. She was rescued from the Russian facility where she was held from birth by Michael Vaughn's father, Bill. Bill Vaughn was murdered by Irina Derevko in 1979. Based on Sydney Bristow's date of birth (April 17, 1975) and Sydney's being age 6 when Irina faked her death and returned to Russia, it is impossible for Nadia to have been born any earlier than 1982 and thus impossible for Bill Vaughn to have rescued her.

Beginning in the second season, episodes that are running too long have no opening theme. The credits are played over the episode and the only title logo you see is the black screen with the words ALIAS that is seen at the end of every episode. See more »
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?
