TV Notes: Alias 1x02

Reminder: Tubi has all 5 Seasons of Alias available to watch, for FREE! Sadly, I think they're airing the eps with a lot of the songs replaced (Boo!), but it's still a great way to watch the series.

1x02 "So It Begins"
Written by: J.J. Abrams
Directed by: Ken Olin
Airdate: Oct 7, 2001


What bugs me about this 1st scene is Sydney's arrogance! Like the CIA has been waiting for her to join them. So they could take down SD-6 in record time as she put it. Did she forget her dad has already been doing this job? But she's giving Vaughn all this intel like she's their sole answer. Love how he shuts her up by showing her the map of how big SD-6 truly is.

Continuity error: In 1x01 when Syd enters SD-6, the door from the white room opens on the left, here it opens on the right. Ooops!

We learn Syd & Will have known each other for 3 yrs.

I love Weiss!
"Impressive?" (Said to Vaughn after he convinced the boss to help Syd). "Balls of Steel."
Vaughn scoffs.
Weiss: "No, that's what I'm going to call you from now on. (To a passing guy). Hey, have you met balls of steel?"

TV shows will teach you: always cut the blue wire on a bomb.

Ah, yes...from now on nothing but cliffhanger endings!

Btw, I LOVE Sydney's home/apartment!
It's so darned cozy & Californian.

Gotta love that Syd is still going to college and pursuing a degree while working as a double agent. How does she keep up with all the homework anyway?

Wouldn't Syd know that meeting her dad out in the open like that was risky?
No wonder Jack chewed her out!

We first learn of Rambaldi!

How "experienced" does an agent need to be in order to be handler that just relays instructions? This bit about demoting Vaughn is a little stupid. Glad Syd doesn't stand for it.

This episode has my favorite music score piece!
The Spanish-flavored track is awesome! ♡

Marshall's so excited about his gadgets in this ep!
It's very cute!

This Lambert that takes over is such an A-hole, too!
And if SD-6 is tracking her why on earth did Syd meet her dad? I mean they probably wouldn't think much of it because Jack is SD-6, but as he told Syd, she was too exposed.

Hard to believe this is the first time Syd & Will have kissed...

Yep, let's have that awkward kiss moment be even more awkward by bringing up her dead fiance's belongings!
Great timing, Will!
