Did You Know?


The final code was supposed to be Ryan's brother's birth date - 1124 November 24th. However people from the British isles use the day then the month. Ryan has a London accent and an Irish name so whichever way you look at it he would have used 2411 i.e. 24th November. See more »

One Unforgettable Episode in One Forgettable Season !

This is one great episode for sure, which proves that (Alias) was one of the best. But the main problem here is that it was in the wrong place !

Well, everybody knows that the first 2 seasons were just great in every aspect. However, after that, almost everything went down. Mainly because the withdrawal of the power to convince by any dramatic logic even in a fictional work like this. So you'll see things about (Sydney) and her amnesia for 2 years, and then her coming back to the intelligence so fast with that condition !, (Sloane) and his story as someone working FOR the American government, being that international humanitarian world peace kind of guy !!!!, and further than that.. The too long, too far, too silly enigma of (Rambaldi). So any solid ground, that you built your relationship with that show on, was blown away and gone with the wind of depreciation, maybe because that stupid desire to put it on air by any possible or impossible way and whatever the costs were.

But here, it was a good surprise to watch that exceptional work, thanks to the script of (R.P. Gaborno) & (Christopher Hollier ) as a nice thriller movie in 60 minutes episode. You'll be glued to your seat, without the ability to even blink; like the old times in the first Alias. There was many events to love : that compact deception to make the terrorist talk about the bomb he invented, then the plane situation which had (Vaughn) and (Sark) on one flight with ticker bomb, and for the very first time ever they work together to breakdown the explosion, then the fest of twists at the end; the terrorist's lie about the bomb, his must fulfill revenge for the murder of his own brother whom was killed by (Sydney) !, the big finish with the surprise of another bomb in the intelligence's building itself !!, and the code to break the 2 bombs now is in the head of that angry suicidal terrorist !!!

Yes, everything ended happily, and the bombs stopped before one second like all the James Bond's holly constitution, and you'll find yourself yelling "Hey.. It's the golden age of Alias again" !.. But sorry.. Till the end of that season, maybe there is just the next episode (Taken) as another yet last exceptional one. Because after that, the anarchy is in business again as the ruling logic of those bad days of what used to be pretty show once.
