5.0 out of 5 stars A treat for the converted fan and a must for everyone else, 10 Dec 2005
This review is from: Alias Seasons 1-4 - Limited Edition Box Set (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [DVD] (DVD)
I was quite a late convert to alias and have since watched all four series over the past year or so buying each one separately. I wish I would have hung on and bought the box set. Although the packaging is basically the same as the separately available sets just with an extra all encompassing sleeve, you do save money if you buy all at once.
From the start of series one the action doesn't let up, Sydney Bristow is one of the strongest female leads to appear on television for years , all through the four series there are very strong female chararcters I won't digress to give too much of the story away. There are sub plots that run through entire series aswell as plots that cross the entire four series, its rare for a tv show to treat the viewer with enough respect to presume they have seen all the previous shows.
With the succes of "lost" by the same creator, alias has found an increased audience, but if you've seen lost and are an alias fan you must be like myself who cannot stand who slow and drawn out 'lost' is. Alias is just bam bam bam, one great scene after another, with intelligent story lines I couldn't put my finger on one boring episode. The end of season cliffhangers for the most part are jawdropping and inspiring, the great thing about the box set is you don't have to wait for months to see the next one.
The extras are also great on the sets, the bloopers reel are especially a treat whereas on most discs these are predictable and totally unfunny, I think the seriousness of the show makes the outakes all the more amusing.
I defy anyone to watch these series without becoming totally engrossed in the world of Alias, a cult series which does not get the audience it deserves, especially in the UK where it swaps from channel to channel every other series so much that you don't know where your up to. So buy the lot and book a week off work.
