BarryP.Oct 28, 2008fantastic premise. It grows on you. You have to see the development of Slater's characters hate for himself. It is such a study in contrasts, and Slater does a terrific job of jumping from persona to persona.… Expand
Dec 14, 2010Christian Slater delivers a brilliant performance portraying two characters who are a split personality. They are the same man but different to one another, so there are parallels between the characters which makes for a difficult job for the actor who somehow makes this look easy. One of the supporting cast has the same job to do; two connected characters in one man and unfortunately doesn't pull it off. one character is complete while the other is too emotionally dead and without personality. It's only toward the very last two episodes that he begins to 3 dimensionalize the spy character. Sadly, this is another brilliant series that has been cancelled. I am beginning to get annoyed with the networks lack of follow through.… Expand
MikeSNov 21, 2008I think that the reason that this show is getting canceled is that an automaker is the sponsor. This is a very well written show that does a terrific job every week. Someone else should pick this up. Lot's to like here!… Expand
MarilynB.Jan 10, 2009Original and should bring it back!!!
JavarioF.Feb 9, 2009I notice that either the alias or the actual news reviews actually responded. With the garbage in the media via musical or visual, it was great to see something interesting on television. The television show had more style, depth, and intrigue than a lot of movies. Anything movie-worthy should have a chance on t.v. With all that being said... "Bring it back @ NBC!" What if NBC had a show as huge as Alias? Oh wait, wasn't that My Own Worst Enemy? I believe it was, but what happened? It was canceled! I think the main flaw was probably character depth. I think the problem was that the simple minded couldn't follow the intricate story-line. Maybe if the show builds in depth, maybe it could possibly return. 10 all the way, just needs more location, and breaking down the events to the simple minded low rating reviewers. I see more garbage in the media that would be the stepping stone for the late show that previously passed away. Key points.. i think some people may feel the show was rushed..Maybe it was, but it was still great in it's short life span. If revived, take consideration of the criticism so the appeal shall grow. But, I as long as many other wish for it's return... bring it back, bring it back!!!… Expand
RussR.Dec 27, 2008Engaging, at times edge-of-your-seat spy thriller with an interesting rogues gallery of "normal" and "supernormal" characters. Unlike so many excellent shows of the past (non-crime drama or comedy) network shows, I hope it doesn't get cancelled.… Expand
DavidHOct 22, 2008I had high hopes and even set up the DVR to record all new episodes. However, after just one episode (think it was the second one), the wife and i were less than impressed. I do like Slater but found the plot and the characters to be a bit tired and cliche.… Expand
