"Alias."

Wednesday, March 02, 2005

It's been a long time since I watched "Alias." They lost me about the time Lena Olin was in it playing Sydney's mother. When they did an episode where she, Sydney and her dad Jack all went on a mission as a spy family, that was it. I hated all that Rimbaldi stuff, too. This is a guy who lived in DaVinci's time, right? Yet his gadgets were scattered all over the world in a time before jet planes or anything. It took a lifetime just to get to one place. I never bought it.

Anyway, I checked "Alias" out on a fluke and it was damn good. Gina Torres and her big, sexy lips are back as Sydney's first-season nemesis, Anna, who is a former K-Directorate agent, now freelance killer. Justin Sark is back as well. So young, so British, so evil.

Bad-ass chicks kicking each other's ass all over the world, Sydney's hot disguises, it's all back. Don't know if I'll stick with it (too busy), but it's definitely back to basics.

Speaking of Jacks, have you noticed how many Jacks there are on network TV? Jack Bauer from "24," Jack from "Will and Grace," Jack from "Lost," and the aforementioned Jack from "Alias." Not to mention the failed Jack (another Jack!) Black/Ben Stiller pilot "Heat Vision and Jack." And that's off the top of my head, I'm sure there are more.
