The first female James Bond! This series had it all" violent action, sinister villains, exotic local, shocking plot twists, and butt kicking sexy heroine!

I had never watched this series when it was televised, but decided to take a chance with 6 Swap A DVD credits and order it for free. I was very pleased with this series, which I think is in the same genre as the Kiefer Sutherland series "24". I loved 24 for about the first three seasons. After that, it was all about torture and I couldn't stomach it. This series has the action and adventure of the heroine going out as a spy, but also battling the forces within her company, which are rather sinister. I watched this series over a period of about 2 months. I just spent another 6 credits ordering Season 2!

Haven't finished all episodes yet, but great so far. My wife likes the fact that she has a super hero-woman to enjoy.

WARNING: A well thought out script.

"My wife has watched this show since the beginning, but I never have as it interfered with my sleep schedule. After recently buying a new DVD player I was anxious to get started watching something. I bought "Alias Season 1" and "Six Feet Under" (which I would also recommend highly). Anyway, my plan was to watch one episode a week, or at most a couple, so I could make it last. So I'm thinking I can get through the 22 or so episodes in 10 weeks. Try 2.Thats right! I would watch like three a day. I was addicted. Conversations in my house sounded something like this..."Honey, come eat dinner."
"No, I'm watching Alias.""Honey, help me with the groceries."
"No, I'm watching Alias.""Honey, I'm pregnant."
"Wow, thats great, we'll talk later, I'm watching Alias."I'm really serious. Every episode would end on such a cliffhanger you had to see at least the beginning of the next episode. But then the middle was so good you wanted to see how it would develope. But then another darn cliffhanger and you were locked in the cycle for good. I can't wait for Season 2. I pre-ordered it at 3 in the morning because that was a minute after I finished Season 1. I'm thinking about starting AA (Alias Anonymous) until I can get my fix."
A great first season

"Alias is, simply put, one of the best shows currently on TV. Few shows (especially action series) are able to move at such a fast pace, yet retain a truly human element throughout. The mark of a good show is the ability to keep the viewer begging for more, and Alias is a master at this, with every Act and/or episode ending capable of making me groan simply because I have to wait for the conclusion.Jennifer Garner leads a superb cast as Sydney Bristow, a double agent for the CIA who, until recently, had been working for SD6, which she thought was a secret unit of the CIA, but is really part of a shadowy organization known as the Alliance. In this first season, she has to keep her affiliation with the CIA a secret from both her friends and with her coworkers at SD6, while finding out about the details of her mother's death, and her father's role in both the CIA *and* SD6.The DVD set is presented in widescreen, with some documentaries, a gag reel, a few deleted scenes, and a handful of commentaries (the best of which being the cast commentary for the season finale). Aided by good writing and direction and a few well-placed instances of "stunt" casting (Patricia Wettig, Roger Moore, and a delicious turn by Quentin Tarantino), Alias is not to be missed, and this DVD set should be a joy for fans (even if the special features are a tad too sparse)."

"J.J. Abrams confirmed to TV Guide Online that the first season is being preped for release:"There are going to be a lot of great special features," he says of the mult-disc set, wich is slated to arrive in stores on Sept. 2. "When I filmed the pilot, a good friend of mine shot like eight or nine hours of behind-the-scenes footage and did interviews with most of the cast. So, in addition to a number of other really cool features, we're going to edit together a behind-the-scenes piece on the making of the pilot.""
