However, I think there are a lot of things that make this season worth watching and give the fourth season a fighting chance for being one of the better seasons. First of all, the first half of the season is excellent to watch - the attempts by Sydney to discover what happened to her in the past two years are interesting and well tied together in the resolution to this dilemma in the middle of the season. The second half of the season has its moments as well. The North Korea episode, while not a pivotal episode for the main themes of the show, was well done and intense. There is a glimpse of the humor that gave the show some charm in the first two seasons with the return of Will in one episode, as well as the episode where Vaughn pretends to be Sark. The return of Conrad (the monk in Nepal who originally sent Sloane on the Rambaldi mission) resolves what the documents were that he revealed to Sloane. The final episodes where The Passenger is revealed are also pretty well done, and the finale, while not as mindblowing as previous seasons, leaves the show open for the fourth season. Since the show won't be returning until January 2005, the writers have much more time to concoct a more intricate and satisfying plot.
While this is not the best season, it is interesting, worth-watching, and necessary to enjoy the subsequent seasons of Alias.
Credit the show's producers with allowing snark of this magnitude to be attached to the official product by buying a set. At least they have a sense of humor and an ability to not take themselves too seriously.
Alias the 3rd season was great, although it may not have been the most action filled year of the three, it was a building on Sydney's emotional aspects, as well as Vaughn's. I never missed an episode.It kept you on your toes, as well as on the edge of your seat.
Sydney is just a great role model, sure the clothes can be a bit scary, but the girl underneath is great, Jeniffer Garner, known as Sydney on Alias and in the movie Daredevil as kick-butt girl Elektra, also known for her lead role on the summer of 2004 hit 13 going on 30!
Alias had an awesome season, with a great cast, Ron Rifkin,Merrin Dungey,Michael Vartan,Greg Grunburg, Melissa George,Victor Garber, David Anders, CArl Lumbley, and Kevin Weisman. With plenty of great guest stars this season including: a return of Will, Bradley Cooper,as well as Mia Maestro,Isabella Rossellini, David Cronenberg and Quintin Tarentino.
In other words, what I'm saying is you have got to see these, they are great episodes.If you are waiting for the next season (season 4) in the states or just in the middle of season 3 in the UK, you have just gotta see this!!
We came into Season 3 expecting the action, the aliases, the suspenseful missions. But the fact of the matter is, Seasons 1 and 2 had the SD-6 situation to fall back on. The Covenant, our current terrorist organization, is not as deceiving, as involved. Sydney doesn't have the determination and motivation she previously had to take them down. And we, the viewers, certainly don't have the motivation to sit and wait for her to find it.
Lauren's all-too-obvious reveal as a double agent for the Covenant DID improve the season. Dramatically. Except for one thing: we, the viewers, refused to see the advantages of her reveal. Between the 'cow-bashing' on the boards and the letters of complaint to JJ, you wouldn't know that there was anything ELSE going on in the season besides Lauren being evil.
The love triangle was overplayed, yes. But after all the complaining from viewers, the tension between Syd/Vaughn, are we not happy with our resolution? And for those who have become sick of Syd/Vaughn, were you sick of the first two seasons too? Because if you think about it, everything leading up to Phase One was theirs, their tension, their struggle to hold back on their feelings.
So what exactly is it that we're all sick of?

Great series, 1,2 and 3, and hated to leave it at season three but I have heard so much about season 4 and 5 not being up to the high quality of seasons 1-3 that I choose to leave... Read morePublished on May 25 2012 by David B. Osborne
Let's make one thing clear. Alias is NOT 24; it's a cartoon, most especially this season. The decline of the series began in mid-season 2. Season 3 is bordering on the ridiculous. Read morePublished on Dec 31 2004 by D. Marois

Many rabid ALIAS fans like myself were extremely dissapointed with the Greek tragedy that has been Season 3. However, too many are quick to jump on the 'I hate Season 3! Read morePublished on July 8 2004 by Kyle Abney
I first bumped into Alias on C4 (UK) during the pilot. It caught my eye but because of poor scheduling I soon forgot about it. Read morePublished on July 7 2004 by Amazon Customer
First season wasn't too bad but after that it just went downhill. Plot is so ridiculous at this point that its downright hilarious. Read morePublished on July 5 2004 by Victoria
Most Alias fans agree that season 3 wasn't as good as season 1 or 2. I agree. It wasn't as good as season 1 or 2, but it was still a great season. Read morePublished on July 5 2004
