    What do you prefer and why.

    As much as I think 24 is amazing and set new standards, I believe Alias is a better TV show overall as it has less limitations. It's set around the world and spans on multiple years.

    I personally favor Alias.  A lot more variety.  24's main thing is always about terrorism.

    Haha, I think a lot of people are going to reply that they prefer Alias in this thread. And I'm one of them. Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love 24, but Alias is cooler because it feels more cinematic, epic, globe-trotting, etc. etc. Alias is my #1 favorite show, 24 is #3. (Lost falls between them.)

    nothing will ever be able to touch Alias it's the best Spy show ever.

    i always tried to get people i knew who watched 24 to watch Alias b/c really the shows are the same except Alias has a female lead and doesn't take place in 24 hours.

    and come on Jack Bower would never be able to pull of an alias as well as the incredible Sydney Bristow.

    I am going to with 24 just because there is so many twists and turns and makes it so interesting. 
    but dont get me wrong Alias is definitely up there

    Definitely Alias.24 is boring in my opinion and I never liked it.Alias,I think is something different from other action/adventure series.It has great actors,excellent playing,relentless action and what makes it so fantastic to me is the disguises and all these different looks.Alias was,is,and will always be my favourite show.

    ^^ I agree that 24 is boring. I couldn't watch it after the first season... and it didn't really make me want to watch episode after episode after episode....

    I'd already watched a majority of Alias before I had ever seen a 24 episode. Putting that aside I favor Alias to 24 because of Rambaldi and his artifacts as well as memorable characters like Martial, Dickson, Vaughn, Renee, Anna, Sloane, ect. 24 is a great action based show but Alias has the mystery factor, and in 24 you are pretty much guaranteed that by the end of the season Jack will have stopped the terrorists.

    I'd put the first two seasons of Alias up against the 2 best seasons of most series, including 24. However, when it comes to the entire canon, 24 was quite simply better and more consistent over its entire run.

    Alias. Better characters, more fun, more comedy, better plots, better cast, plus a sci-fi twist. Alias all the way.

    I love Alias but 24 is much more realistic. There are no myths and prophesy in 24. Jack Bauer doesn't have to wear a wig and shake his ass to catch bad guys. I vote for 24. That being said Alias is much more funnier. 24 doesn't have a Marshall.

    I like Alias because it isn't as realistic. Meh maybe it's just me or I'm being hypocritical because 24 is high up in my sig than Alias.
