    Mine is Jack. He my favorite, cause he always looks the same whether he's furious or overjoyed. He totally own his emotions, well most of the time. He always does what has to be done, no matter how hard.

    Because she was well acted, well written, and you didn't know what side she was on most of the time, which made her pretty mysterious, and the best villain of the show.

    Jack, specially how ackward he was in his father role, and also because of the women he hooked up with.

    Weiss was also one of my favourite characters right of from season 1, when he constantly tells Vaughn to keep his cool and later in the series for his jokes.

    All in all, ALIAs had really well written characters

    As others have said, Jack.

    He always seemed to have the answers and knew what to do in every situation. From the first time he was ons screen (the "welcome to the family" speech), I knew he was gonna be my fav.

    Syd's my fave but there's episodes where I choose other people as my favorite. Irina's one of my fave's just cause she's always a surprise. Nadia for no good reason.... Marshall makes me happy.

    I love all of the characters but everybody has to shut up when Spy Daddy is on.  We always rewind the Jack Bristow scenes before moving on with the episode.  For me his was one of the most brilliantly acted and believable roles ever achieved - TV or BIG SCREEN.     Victor Garber's performance is unmistakably remarkable and I'll never be able to comprehend why he did not win an Emmy.  I'm pretty level headed but have to remind myself sometimes "Jack's not real".  If I could make a wish to the entertainment fairy I'd wish for a Jack Bristow movie in the theaters - I truly believe that Victor Garber's portrayal of this character on the big screen could become a 007 type cult icon.  (of course we'd have make sure SYD, WEISS, MARSHALL, DIXON, SLOAN, IRINA et al were involved in the project)  I feel very fortunate that a friend of mine asked me to watch the 5 Seasons of Alias with her on DVD.  The Jack Bristow legend is gonna stick with me for a long time.  Thanks so much Mr. Garber.
