ABC (ended 2006)
seasons 1and 2 hands down are the best.
i got into Alias during season 2 after my grandparents kept telling me how much i'd love the show. i watched 1st season on dvd and to this day when i watch it it still feels new to me. seeing this poor woman's life fall apart and then her getting back up and trying to right it and go back to normal was so interesting to see in the first season. 2nd season was just awesome b/c it felt like it got kicked up a notch and the shocking take down of SD-6 that everyone thought would be part of the story to end. the Sydney/Evil Francie fight will go down as the best fight in tv history, that was amazing in every sense of the word. the only thing i don't like about season 2 is how they killed Francie and ruined poor Will. it was sad to see Sydney lose her friends.
i can't believe a lot of people don't like season 4. i loved it. APO was so awesome and more daring. the opening scene to the season where it was made to look like Sydney compromised a mission and then she quit through me for a loop until i realized it wa just an act. the season just felt like it was back on track after the slowness and weirdness of 3rd season. everyone seemed as happy as could be, there were little mentions of Sydney's life durng season 1, and the fights and costumes were awesome.
season 3 was the slump. i won't say i hated it but i won't say i loved it, i was in the middle. i hated Lauren so much and i knew she was bad and was waiting for it. the scene where she shot Sark's father i was jumping up and down like an idiot b/c i was so happy that Sydney and Vaughn could get together now haha. now i like Lauren she's one of my fave tv characters.
season 5 is ok i just wish Jennifer Garner could have done more. it was a little boring seeing Sydney out of commission for the first half of the season. i did not in any way that they killed off Nadia is was so sad and so wrong. i really liked Nadia and just thought it was stupid for her to have died. Rachel and Tom were nice additions to the team. i liked how Sydney was able to help Rachel out with her situation she was going through with The Shed (bad fan can't remember the name of the organization Rachel worked for before APO) and being able to show someone what she wished she knew when she found out about SD-6.
Alias was the perfect show in every way even if it wasn't all that great at certain times. it had everything: family, romance, betrayal, murder, spying, action, drama,etc..... what more could anyone ask for?
for an season overall i have to go with season 3... I liked the twist with Lauren... But after the season 5 hiatus the show went back to what it use to be likein the early seasons which i really enjoyed...
For me it's a tie between Season 1 and 2. Can't really decide which one I like the best - the SD-6 years are kind of one whole thing in my mind.
Then it comes Season 3, 5 and then 4.
1. Season 3! - It's the best season! Am I the only one, who thinks so? o.O
Hmm, I dunno.
I loved S3 because Lauren made it phenominal, but Sydney's story about not knowing the past 2 years was going nowhere, then all of a sudden it's revealed. I guess that was a bit of a downer.
Then again, the whole relationship triangle between Syd-Vaghn-Lauren was amaze, and it was nice to have a season where Sydney didn't think her father was evil every 2nd episode!
Definitely missed Will, but I might have to say S3 is the best.
