    I read a preview in the TV Guide and it sounded good. (it was Colorblind) I was in Florida at the time, so I recorded it and watched when i got home.

    I was way, way late. I was browsing through TV show DVD's on Netflix and came across Alias. I thought it sounded interesting, so, I said why not? After the first couple of episodes I was hooked. I wound up buying all the DVD's. Now it is my second favorite show of all-time!

    when it first aired here in Australia I love it from the started and any show that get's me to watch the pilot all the way without changing halfway through or after five mins usealy means it's going to be a new fave show in my book.

    I loved the idea that it was a action show that had a woman as the lead in a strong roll who was a spy and I have never missed a single ep.

    By looking through a DVD site one night and saw the first season for a cheap price - plus I had a money-off voucher.

    Had the entire collection less than two months later.

    My boyfriend owns all the dvds and one day I was bored and put season 1 on and watched 3 seasons in a week and a half. I have a 2 month daughter so when I feed her etc, tv is pretty much all I can do That's why I managed to watch so much so fast.

    I asked my sister for her Lost DVDs. She had already lent them so I borrowed the Alias ones. I watched them and that was it.

    I started watching it when it was first aired on Sky 1, in the UK. I liked the look of it from the adverts, I think it was advertised during Buffy/Angel.

    I loved it right from the first episode

    A co-worker recommended the series. I found it available through my local library system. I saw season 1 and was hooked. I watched every ep checking it out through the library.

    Before seeing it I kind of thought it was some shallow over polished show based the attractiveness of the main character. But the show has some really well done plot and characters. It did get a little redundant toward the middle, but it had a strong ending that really tied up most of the loose ends in a satisfying way.

    I was in a DVD resale shop and saw the first season for 10.00 and remembered a family friend said it was good so I bought it and got hooked on the first episode

    My friend lent me her DVDs of I think the first 3 seasons because she was in love with Michael Vartan and convinced me I would love the show and she was right!
    I became a Sydney/Vaughn shipper right away and could see how easily she fell for him lol. I then watched the last 2 seasons when they aired on tv. She fell out of love for the show itself because the mythology became a little too complicated but since Seasons 4 and 5 were the first I watched on television, I just kinda followed the seasons without thinking too much into the mythology.
