I have been a huge fan of the show Alias since the show's inception (as well as j j abrams' other shows Felicity and Lost). Abrams has a bad habit, though, of leaving the writing to others during the second or third season (to start his next project), whereupon the show really "jumps the shark." I was not as excited about this year, though I did tape it and watched this week's episode this morning.

Though I feel halfhearted about the story-line since 1.) the real life romantic lives of the actors ruined the chemistry and 2.) Jen Garner is pregnant with Ben Affleck's kid, not Michael Vartan's. ( I don't care how good an actress she is, I can't get that out of my head. ) 3.) Since Sidney and Vaughn got mean. Part of the appeal was the girl next door/ boyscout 'real self' vs. their double lives as spies. Now that they are all just bad people, I can't relate.

However, I would like to make some call as to who "the body" is: I'm going with Vaughn. I know his chest was full of bullets, but nobody dies on Alias (kind of like the A-team...remember?). That will make it easier for Sidney to live happily ever after at the end of this season. Of course, I wouldn't mind if "the body" wasn't anyone important and "Will" took time off the overly sexually charged "Kitchen Confidential" on FOX (I have friend who's a cook who says he hates shows that try to make cooking's not.) ....anyway, yeah, "Will" could easily reprise his role as the hopeful and lovestruck "friend with potential."

All I can say for certain is that if it doesn't get better soon, I'll have to change the ringer on my phone. Maybe the "A-team" theme....

I think it was Aaron that suggested that it is Vaughn's father in the tube. Either that or the Make Your Own Kind of Music Guy from Lost.
