    It's an awesome show that, prohibiting spoilers, will shock all the time. I didnt start watching until the middle of season 5, and t is an awesome show. Totally worth every minute of your time. Just try the first few episodes of season 1, I'm sure you'll get hooked.

    the show is like a big action movie and for the first season and a half theres a cliffhanger at the end of each episode. Like Presto said, watch the first few and if you like those, then ill tell you now it just gets better from there on in. If not, well then Alias isnt for you.

    Ive said it before, but in my opinion, the first two seasons as a story is some of the best television i have ever seen. Great characters, great story, great action and just brilliant all round.

    You are so lucky you haven't seen it yet. You have a lot of great entertainment in front of you, that is for sure.

    Enjoy this brilliant show!

    I am in the middle of the 5th season and I think it is going downhill. The first 4 seasons were great but no pregnant woman is going to be doing classified missions for a ghost organization. I will finish cuz I loved the first 4 seasons. Im just dissapointed with how season 5 is going.

    I'm a huge fan myself, but the general consensus is that the show started going downhill in S5, too many new cast members replaced classic ones, Syd being pregnant just wasn't appealing, etc.

    But on the other hand, the first 4 seasons were totally awesome, it's by far the best spy show I've seen so far. Totally recomed to watch

    If you don't buy & watch all 5 Seasons you are cheating yourself out of the most thrilling entertainment available.

    So far I would agree. I am in the middle of season 3. Once I get done with this series I am going to start watching MI5 and see if it is any good.

    I watched the entire 5 seasons over the summer, and thought it was a great series, just be careful not to read spoilers on this forum till after you watch them:-)

    The only problem I saw with the series is that it practically consumed my life for 5 years. Yes it is that good.

    yes it is definitly worth watching! if u get the first season you will be addicted and have to run to the store to get the 2nd and third... unfortunatly the 4th (at least for me) was not as good as the others... and the 5th completely tanked which is why it went off the air so soon

    I almost wish I could be watching the show again for the 1st time. It is so amazing when you see the first few episodes for the first time. I was so addicted back then. Who am I kidding? I'm STILL addicted! I watch the dvds all the time. The first 2 seasons were the best, 3 was good, 4 was ok, and I thought that 5 was better than 4 but COULD'VE been much better. I wish they got to make a movie or something.

    was able to watch only the 1st season on TV. last year i found the time to view all the other seasons in DVD. sleepless nights well worth it! once you pop a disc in your player, you can't stop!
