Trivia

When Will Tippin is down in the docks snooping around, he passes a freighter ship. The name of the ship is "Alba Varden", that is also the name of the ship from Lethal Weapon 2 (1989) where the final battle takes place. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1 minute) There is a scene with a ship yard, which Will Tippin is investigating. This shot of the shipyard was not actually filmed for Alias. It is in-fact a shot from Lethal Weapon 2. If you look carefully, this can be explained by the Name and Location of the ship; The Alba Varden, out of Hamburg and the 2 figures standing by the shipping container to the right of the ship. Look towards the end of Lethal Weapon 2 and you'll notice the exact same shot. See more »

Trend bender for the series
22 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

To this point the series was fun, but little more than that.

In spite of the strong themes, the early episodes were more or less letting JG play dressup and riff off early Mission Impossible scripts from the late 60s.

Again, all that was fun, and no one plays dressup better than JG, but even the dead boyfriend arc and the amorous reporter arc and the daddy issues arc (and my least favorite arc, the spineless CIA handler who looks like he escaped from a sitcom)-- even with all these, it was not really coming together.

In this episode Abrams and the gang took it up a notch, especially the close which (as other reviewers here have said) involved cutting off a finger and letting QT (yes, THE QT) pound the &%&% out of JG.

(QT rarely gives a good performance as an actor, and besides who is going ever say NO to him, but here is not bad).

Opens the gateway to long run that followed.
