Alias: Season 5 Photos
Tv Season Info
Cast & Crew
ABC's delicious spy thriller, which returned last night for its final run, calls for a pulp goddess, and Garner is a natural.
The contrast between this mundane dimension of Sydney's life and her athletic international intrigues was genuinely fun to see.
Alias actually got better as it wound down in this season, and the show was allowed to give us a satisfactory wrap-up.
Sadly, Alias jumped the shark by going ahead with the fifth season. But for fans of the show, it was nice to actually see the show have a final episode that wrapped things up. Too often, television shows just die in the corner with no farewell episode.
Alias is back to its roots with this episode -- great storyline, fast-paced action, the Rambaldi texts coming back into play, and some great character dynamics from previous seasons are all on display.
Audience Reviews for Alias: Season 5
Dec 03, 2019Jennifer Garner forces her real-life pregnancy into the fifth season of Alias, dooming the series to certain cancellation. When a new terrorist group called Prophet Five emerges APO must discover who its members are and prevent them from uncovering the secrets of Rambaldi. Turning Sydney into a pregnant super-spy is ridiculous and makes the character appear reckless. And the cast turn over (Michael Vartan, Greg Grunberg, and Mia Maestro all leave, special guest appearances not withstanding) is a mortal wound that the show just couldn't recover from. However, the addition of Amy Acker as a new villain is a highlight of the season, and Rachel Nichols brings a new energy to the show playing the Season 1 Sydney role of a black ops CIA agent who learns that she has actually been working for a rogue faction. Luckily ABC gave the show advanced notice of their cancellation so that it could have several episodes to wrap-up the series; which it does impressively well, delivering an action-packed, emotional finale and finally reveals the Rambaldi endgame. Cancellation ended up being a mercy killing for Alias, as Season 5 really struggled to find a direction and ways to continue the series.Dann M Super Reviewer
