This should be the last nail in the coffin to house Alias.

Sydney Bristow will be portrayed as pregnant in the upcoming fourth season of Alias. This along with the move to a slot competing with Survivor and Joey next season should seal the show's fate. Look for all kinds of ominous, repetitive, circular Rambaldi prophecy talk. Cue the heavy strings!

I hereby predict that Lost will go down the tubes in the 2006 season, so enjoy it while you can. J. J. Abrams so far has a proven track record of producing brainchildren that retard after two solid seasons. (Also, all of his female characters possess a similar body type that I find unattractive, but that's for another time.)

I'm concerned about this development with Alias too. But the fact is JG is pregnant. And I'd much rather they deal with that somehow than start shooting her in closeups all the time, and hiding her behind countertops and grocery bags. The show revolves around Sydney getting into action scrapes every week. If she suddenly stops... they have to have a good reason why.

I guess I'm saying this potential "jumping of the shark" was thrust upon them. They had no choice.

And, as you point out, Alias hasn't ever been as good as the first two years anyway.

See my latest post on the matter for more doom and gloom. At this point, I assume Bad Robot just wants to get to the "magic" 100th episode so syndication is easier.

I don't know if you've watched Felicity, but I have. (I'm married, so I'm exempt from criticism.) The first two seasons were pretty good -- not as groundbreaking as was advertised at the time. But things turned really, really, really dark for the third and fourth seasons. The mood of the show was always like one of those bad gloomy plays girls write in speech class, but the show evolved into a weekly exploration in misery with some occasional humor.

Plus, whatever semblance of decency was achieved toward the end of the final season was destroyed by a last-minute unnecessary explanation of an alternate universe. (Hmm... sounds like another show I watched...)

I too have watched Felicity (my excuse is that my girlfriend at the time was very much into it). The first season I found quite enjoyable, but even starting with the second season it turned, at best, decent. I never watched the third season as it aired as the local UPN station (carrying it because we didn't have a local WB) threw it into some awful Saturday at 10pm time slot and in the final season it was up against West Wing which I was much more a fan of at the time.

I did catch the finale arc (nyah! Time travel/alternate universe - kill me!) and caught up with some of the third and fourth seasons a couple years ago when I had digital cable and got WE.

I don't really know what my point was except that I also felt similarly about Alias' seasons (first one was very entertaining, second was decent), so maybe that's just my opinion of Abrams' shows.
