It’s over–Alias has ended a five-year-run. Last night I felt like the proverbial headless chicken–my book club met to discuss DANIEL ISN’T TALKING (well-received, probably an average of three stars), then I had the finale of 24 up against the final finale of Alias. I was watching Alias on the computer and 24 on the tiny TV in my office, muting/sounding alternate sets as the commercials rolled across.
What can I say? My favorite TV shows, the only ones I make a point to watch, and they’re both gone now. Fortunately, they’re on the Internet, so I’ll be able to make copies and watch them again.
Alias was one of the most deeply-layered shows on television. I can see why viewership fell off in the latter years–if you didn’t stay up to date, it’d be easy to get Lost (pun intended–the creator of both shows is J.J. Abrams). If you like emotional drama, espionage, a little science fiction, and action, I suggest that you get the first season on DVD and watch it. If you’re not hooked, okay. But I have a hunch you will be.
Well, I have a busy week ahead so I’d better get moving. Alaska? Hubby and I are going on a week-long Alaskan cruise in honor of our 25th anniversary–which we weren’t able to celebrate last year. So I guess we’re celebrating 26 years now. (VBG)
P.S. Regarding 24: Horray for Martha Logan! Poor woman was married to such a weenie . . .
Have a great day!
