The weekly, hour-long TV adventure series Alias wasted no time in establishing a high level of suspense. Its first episode, "Truth Be Told," ran a full 65 minutes, with no commercial interruptions -- and be assured that few viewers were willing to leave their seats for the duration. Jennifer Garner starred as college student Sydney Bristow, who during her senior year was recruited into SD-6, the shadowy "special operations" division of the CIA of which her father, Jack (Victor Garber), was a top functionary. Given a crash course in martial arts and high technology, Sydney still did not quite appreciate the gravity of her mission in life until she inadvertently caused the murder of her fiancÚ. Thereafter, she kept her profession a secret from everyone she knew -- and did her best to stay at least one step ahead of whatever enemy happened to be after her during a given episode. Created by Felicity's J.J. Abrams, Alias made its ABC network debut on September 30, 2001. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Disc One contains episodes 1-3:

  • Truth Be Told (pilot episode)
  • So It Begins
  • Parity

The new Buffy? by cammelltoe April 12, 2005 - 6:17 PM PDT

I feel like an ad man for saying it, but, if you enjoyed Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you would be doing yourself a great disservice by not taking this series for a test drive. The same elements that make Buffy so enjoyable--- solid acting, good dialogue, lots of kung fu fighting, genre splicing/reconfiguration and clever plotting--- are alive and well here. The 2 big differences are Alias functions in the mythical land of spys and conspiracies (as opposed to vampires and prophecies) and focuses on the drama of being a grad student (as opposed to a high school student). Whatever you think of Buffy, this is good genre television and is worth your time.
