|I would say after season 3. The repetitive storylines/plots.Also storylines that were stupid such as Sloane having a daughter with Irina Derevko. Characters that shouldn't have been added(Nadia).The whole Sloane back and forth evil crap. I watched this show from the beginning. But mid-way through season 4.Watching a full episode became difficult. Whether you're a fan or not. You have to admit to the crap that finally put the nail in the coffin.|
I totally agree with you. First, the affair between Sloane and Irina was out of characher and unbelievable : it put Irina's cover as Laura at risk, and it made Sloane even more of an **** : he was a monster but he was a good husband, his love for Emily was his only redeeming feature, the affair destroyed that.
The affair was a sign, along with Vaughn's marriage to another woman within 2 years after Sydney's death that consistent character development didn't matter on Alias, and that all the characters were mere pawns for JJ and co to play with.
Nadia's presence on the show never felt natural : her relationship with Sloane felt contrived, just like his ride on the good side for the sake of a girl he never knew. It was both boring and unbelievable. Her instant bonding with Sydney felt forced too, just like her relationship with Weiss. She played such a major part in the show that she only came back to die stupidly and that her death was not even mentioned by the mother who spent 20 years looking for her.
