Fresh out of the farm, Annie Walker must adapt to the challenging life of a CIA operative under the guidance of her handler, Auggie. But soon she realizes her recruit might have to do with her last boyfriend rather than her talent.
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 C.I.A. 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 C.I.A. 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

Many episodes feature a sequence in which a long-distance sniper uses a laser sight to hone in on a target, but a real sniper would never even consider using one. First of all, the laser gives away the presence of the sniper which, although used successfully in the show, completely defeats the purpose of a hidden sniper. Second, and more importantly, a laser sight is completely worthless to a sniper because there are so many factors that affect the trajectory of the bullet on long-distance shots - wind, altitude drop, and the Coriolis effect on very long shots to name a few - and have no affect whatsoever on the laser that the bullet would wind up being at least several feet, if not several yards, away from target the laser pinpoints!

Just imagine this: One not-so-bad-looking girl wearing bikini runs around kick heavily armed bad guys' asses. Remember Charlie's Angels? Alias is almost or equally ridiculous as that!! How the hell a long blond haired girl ever is able to kill or knock off guys that are 3 times as big as her, and how the hell can she be a spy when she's so freaking unbelievably emotional. She's always crying, or yelling when something's up. Note to bad guys, you gotta remember to grab her hair! MY GOD!!! This TV series should be freaking more convincing. There is just too much impossibility in the series. Compare to 24, Alias is garbage.
Please don't waste your time on this junk. 3/10
