Many on the Internet will tell you that Alias is a derivative, confusing and terrible show. Those people COULD NOT BE MORE WRONG.
If you want high a octane, exciting, thrilling ride - get this series...all seasons. The story might be a bit convoluted -- but come on...spies, hot women, and butt-kicking are prevalent throughout. Turn your brain off and enjoy.
Grat sound mix and good special effects make this a show you will keep coming back to. ,if you have a home theatre set up, crank it up and kill the lights.
PROBLEMS: Discs are of terrible quality. Noticed disc rot and parts of the disc separating due to poor manufacture (layers of disc at inside ring were separating) and show was continually skipping on all my DVD players, even computer drives that have excellent error correction. ABC Studios/Disney stood behind this product and shipped me replacement discs after I explained the problems and provided proof.
I did this because even my replacement sets had the same issue - please be aware of this before you order. Same issues even when purchased locally (FutureShop).
Series would have scored five stars if not for disc quality issues. If you order, check all discs for rot, discolouration and scratches. Look for bubbling and separation on the inside ring of the disc, and be prepared to return and/or exchange if needed.
