Loosing the plot...,
This review is from: Alias - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
I really enjoyed seasons 1 & 2. Series 3 was OK, but season 4 is a mess. Plotlines in Alias always were liable to enter the digestive system at the wrong end, and that was part of the fun. But the writers seem to have stopped caring now; making things up as they go along. The result is a story "arc" that traverses the digestive system several dozen times in the wrong direction, then pins a live frog on its black suit, stands on a bucket and says "bibble" to the viewers.
Nevertheless, the central members of the cast battle on regardless - although Dixon must be getting tired of playing the "redshirt" every other episode, and most of the time Nadia & Weiss just loiter around like spare parts. Shame because I think Weiss is funny and they really should have given him more to do.
I hear it picks up again in Season 5 - let's hope so. Although, I would not be surprised to discover that Pam Ewing dreamt the whole of season 4.
