3.0 out of 5 stars Well-made escapist action, 9 Aug 2006
By 
This review is from: Alias: Complete Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
This series is hugely enjoyable, with great action sequences and glamourous locations all over the world. Jennifer Garner looks fantastic in all her exotic costumes and the rest of the cast generally come across well.

Having said that, Alias does have its faults, which are more noticeable on DVD because you probably won't be watching the episodes a week apart. It's pretty formulaic and repetitive and the characters are mostly one-dimensional. Sydney Bristow is much less believable in her civilian life. She's just too nice to be a kick-ass secret agent and the idea that she keeps up her graduate studies inbetween her global missions is just laughable.

You need a big dollop of suspension of disbelief, but if you can manage that then Alias is exciting and fun. Maybe one to rent (as I did) rather than buy. There's not much going on beneath the glossy surface of this show.
