    That is like the weirdest title for Alias..
    Never heard a title like that before
    I wonder what it could mean
    a Higher transition or something?

    i am soooo happy that we finally added an Ep. 11 thread. i was so afraid that the rumors of cancelling Alias was true and that JJ would do it in Ep. 10!

    and doesn't Echelon have something to do w/ a ladder? (is it Hebrew?)

    It's not hebrew. it's a mathimatical term. JJ wouldn't cancel Alias mid-season.

    "That Was Then" was on a trial run. So was the first few episodes of Alias. If ABC didn't get enough viewers for Alias it would have been canceled on it's trial run also.

    Probably. Most shows, possibly all, have only the scripts of the first few eps written. Depending on the ratings, more scripts may be written.
    What I dont get is that some shows get cancelled before they're even aired, like Greg Grunberg's show. It was cancelled when it wouldn't even premiere until next year.

    That's because a group of "random" individuals didn't like the pilot.

    "Truth Be Told" was shown to a group of people in a room. If they hadn't liked it, we would never have even heard of ALIAS. :(

    The shows go through exectuives that are on the board of NBC or ABC, etc. If the execs don't like it, it gone. Ever since the re-runs of Senfield where Jerry and George try to make a TV show?

    About the higher step on a ladder thing, maybe it has something to do with advancement in work. Vaughn wants to bring Marshall to the CIA, and have Will work for him too, so maybe it relates to that somehow. Just a theory! :)
