Re: Watching Alias...

If you look into it, you'll find many many many similarities with the Bourne novels. Last spring NBC aired a two parter adaptation, with Stephen Dorff as XIII and Val Kilmer as the Mongoose. Critics shot down the miniseries (they were more or less right given the leads) but it's kinda tough to top the Bourne movies. But the spirit was there, very faithful.

Re: Watching Alias...

One of the things I really liked about Alias in the early seasons was how almost every episode ended with a cliffhanger, which made the week-long wait for the next episode a chore. IIRC, that was something they dropped around the middle of the series (perhaps it just got old?), but even rewatching on DVD, if you just plan to watch one episode at a time, and an episode ends on a tantalizing, edge-of-your-seat note, you can't help but watch "just one more". Next thing you know, you're on your 5th episode... They're almost like Ruffles chips -- you can't just [watch] one.
