Blowing up their premise during the Super Bowl show in the second season worked in the short-term with the search-for-Sloane and Francine storylines but hurt the show in the long-term.

It was the right idea, since the original premise had become repetitive and unbelievable; how could Sloane continue to trust Sydney as a top agent when she constantly "failed" in her missions? But the problem is, when you tear something down, you need something better to replace it with, and they didn't have that. They rushed into it and changed things too abruptly at network insistence, rather than taking the time to resolve it organically and work out a strong way to continue the series.

Re: Finally catching up with "Alias"

What I don't understand is how Sid did not know that her father also worked at SD6, and only happened upon this realisation in the first episode. By the first ep, Sidney had worked for SD6 for, what, 7 years? After the revelation came and Jack was strolling around the office like he belonged there, it seemed as if everybody - Marshall and Dixon in particular - knew Jack, and knew that he was Sidney's father. It makes no sense.

Re: Finally catching up with "Alias"

no she didn't. he was working in a different part of SD6, but after the pilot he moved into the Credit Dauphine office and Marshall and Dixon probably knew him before or got to know him well between the pilot and the first regular episode...
