Storyline

In order to catch Khasinau and get closer to finding her mother, Sydney and Vaughn set up an undercover transaction for a Rambaldi artifact with Khasinau's representative, Mr. Sark. But Sydney's cover may be compromised when a SD-6 agent is sent in to thwart the sale: that being Dixon himself. Meanwhile, Will is enticed by his unseen source to continue his investigation of SD-6 when he learns that Jack Bristow was one of his kidnappers. Also, Sloan's cancer-stricken wife, Emily, tells Sydney that she knows about SD-6, which forces Sloane to make the most difficult decision of his life of whether or not to have her killed for knowing of the existence of the organization.

Goofs

When Sydney and Jack are discussing Emily's knowledge of SD-6, the scene cuts to Sloane in his office. The back of his computer has no cables connected to it, therefore it could not be operational. The only cables visible are simply dangling from the monitor. See more »

Quotes

Emily Sloane: When you look back... family, your friends. That's what matters. Work, your job. It wouldn't seem that important.
[Sydney nods a little]
Emily Sloane: . Even your job. Even working for SD-6.

sometimes you stalk the tiger...
24 February 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

.... and sometimes the tiger stalks you.

The same applies to writing for TV.

This review written in 2015 at a time when we already know this series was a hit.

What interests me as a student of the electronic arts is that this series is and always will be a construct of its time, that is, it will be always be TV version 1.01 in the JJ ABRAMS stable of hits.

One thing I noticed about Alias which you do not see in POI for example is the over-writing. Much of the scripting in Alias is about throwing arcs against the wall and seeing what sticks.

You can argue, as one reviewer did, this is writing on multiple levels. Or you can argue, as I am, it is simply overkill.

One thing we know for certain, current hit drama series are much more restrained and less convoluted.
