Re: 'Alias' series on Netflix streaming in HD (finally)

I'm really happy to see Alias is finally on Netflix. I followed the entire series run from the pilot to the finale, but I haven't seen it since. I've been wanting to watch it again for years and now I finally can. I'll probably start it after I finish either TWD or Primeval.

I found that season4 started strange, didn't feel like the Alias we knew, mainly because of the "reset"... new location, new setup etc. and the stories were not obviously connected. But as the season progressed their were some story threads that begun to emerge, like the mysterious person that Jack and Sloan are looking for, or the "other" Mr. Sloane, Nadia's backstory, Jack's illness etc. and then the 3 part finale was fantastic.
I thought one of the problems with the show was that each time it rebooted itself, it stayed essentially the same. That season four rolled around and the CIA actually had a division run by Sloane was painfully, idiotically absurd. And far too many episodes started to use the "we need to grab this piece of technology and sabotage it/place a tracker on it" plot.

I liked season 4 a lot better in the second half when it went back to serialized storytelling. ABC mandated that the season be mostly standalone at least in the first half which made it just not feel like Alias at all.

Exactly. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the writers said they had no idea what they were doing for the first half of the season.
