After season two, episode thirteen, "Phase One", the show's prominent use of cliffhangers at every episode's end was abandoned for a more traditional (one episode, one story) way of storytelling. This was apparently done, due to demands from ABC executives who were under the impression that new viewers wouldn't "get" the show, and feared a drop in ratings. See more »

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 »
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
