The coffin housing Alias to be covered with dirt

Alias is officially dead. To no one's surprise, its move to the slot opposite Survivor killed most of its ratings, in spite of attempts to reinvigorate the show with new characters.

For anyone who wants to see the show in its former glory, reruns of at least the first season are running in syndication, and, of course, DVD sets of the first four seasons are available. Those who came to the show late might be surprised to discover a series that juggled multiple subplots and ended every episode with a cliffhanger. They might also be shocked to learn that Syndey actually had a personal life away from her complicated work life. And, anyone who knows anything about J. J. Abrams' Felicity would see touches of that show in the first season.

Now all we can do is speculate about how exactly the show will be "revved up" for the end. Will the show end in a giant shocker cliffhanger? Will Ben Affleck sneak in? Will Rambaldi resurface?

I agree with you. Alias used to be so good - especially Seasons 1 & 2, before it turned into a soap opera every week. I think the start of this season showed hints of its former glory, but what a letdown. Every episode seems contrived and I have lost interest in the characters themselves. Sydney used to be so interesting, but... alas, Alias....

It doesn't help when they show three months worth of reruns back to back. I hear there's a two-hour comeback in April and then new episodes are set to go each week. I'm hoping to see a little Rambaldi action myself. Maybe a little Espinosa (yay, Zoe)!
