In many of the episodes when Sydney visits other "countries", one can identify that filming took place in the US because of American telephones, traffic lights, types of signage, types of cars, architecture, door frames and door knobs in the background. Those are subtle for the most part but people living in the countries depicted feel that "something isn't quite right". See more »
Jack is going to shoot you in the face.
Just give me a half-hour head start. Tell him that she called your phone and you gave it to me. We only have ten hours to find Kaplan.
If we end up sharing a cell in federal prison, I'm not giving you a drawer.

Opening credits generally do not appear until after the first act, 10-15 minutes into the episode. This was an unusually late appearance for an American TV series, but it seems to have set a trend. See more »
There are two versions of the pilot episode. One which lasts for sixty-nine minutes, aired on ABC commercially uniterrupted when premiered, while another only lasts for forty five minutes and was designed for commerical interruption. See more »
I am shocked that this show is still on the air! The writing is terrible. Always ripped-off, never anything new. The acting is mediocre, no great performances. The actors don't have much to work with but I'd think they could do better. The action scenes are poorly put together like a 70's kung-fu flick, no realistic sequencing and too much motion altering! After a few episodes I got sick of the outfits for Garner. In scenes were she needed to stay hidden, she wore neon colors and reflective studded clothes! It's less believable than James Bond folks. At least Bond was funny at times, Alias is a stinker!
