  • A bit disappointing...

    I've discovered Alias not so far ago and enjoyed it very much throughout the 5 seasons. However, I don't think that finale did justice to the series. Some points were not so great, especially the Rambaldi storyline. I mean, come on! All that excitement around Rambaldi, all that time spent collecting artefacts and the writers only came up with immortality? What a disappointement! What's more, I did not really understand what the story about the stars falling from the sky added to the already dense plot. To me, the worst of all was the missiles storyline! I thought it was so out of place! What good would it do for Irina to bomb Washington and London? You tell me... About Thomas Grace's death, I thought it did not make any sense all the more as the pretty Rachel Gibson told him she would have said yes if he had asked her out... Last thing, I would have liked to see Jack live on to be with his daughter in the end. They both have survived 5 seasons, why suddenly decide to kill him? To make him a hero? *sigh* Jack was not necessary to bury Sloane, the underground gallery could have collapsed by itself...

    All in all, I think I was waiting for something better after watching 5 seasons, a kind of worthy goodbye to this world I felt part of... Anyway, Alias was a good show which introduced talented actors. Too bad it had to end! Farewell Jack, Irina, Sidney, Vaughn, Marshall, Sloane, Sark...
