Jennifer Garner's opening narration, which was used throughout season one, was literally phoned in. She was working on-location, and had to read it on the phone to J.J. Abrams, who was recording it on the other end. See more »
Characters often pronounce the first name of Milo Rambaldi as MY-lo. If he was a medieval Italian, it would probably be pronounced MEE-lo. See more »

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 »

I loved watching Alias. It was one of the few series where I would freak out if I missed an episode - it was just that good. Season 1 through 3 were the best seasons though and I think it got rather heavy after that - ridiculous plot lines and Sloane's crazy obsession with Rembaldi, clones...
The cast are terrific - Jennifer Garner's such a terrific actress and she's surrounded by a stellar cast - Victor Garber, Michael Vartan, Ron Rifkin..
It really is a great show - if you don't mind the confusion now and again and just watch it with an open mind, take it for what it is - a really great series!
