The first few episodes of the first season do not have the "My name is Sydney Bristow..." introductory monologue; neither does the later season 1 episode "Q & A." By midway through the second season, the opening narration (which by that point was no longer recited by 'Jennifer Garner') was replaced altogether with a recap of previous episodes. See more »
In the UK the sixty minute version aired when premiered on Channel 4, but because of the early time slot of the show (5:30pm) cuts to violence were made. The scenes in Taipei were Sydney is tortured were all cut and we only see this section of the episode when the flashbacks end and the episode's timeline catches up with the character in Taipei. Throughtout the series' duration on Channel 4, cuts were made frequently to the violence and sometimes bad language. See more »
Watching Alias is not quite as enjoyable as drinking bile.
Alias is the story of some pretty-faced college student who is recruited by the CIA to run off on her little spy missions (a pale rehash of just about everything ever filmed on the subject of espionage). The real CIA should be ashamed of this portrayal of their work. It appears that everyone on this series, ESPECIALLY Jennifer Garner, have matriculated at the Block of Wood School of Acting.
The fact that THIS has been beating The X-Files in the ratings this season is a valid argument in favor of devolution. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be beating The X-Files by too much, so maybe this won't last too much longer.
