    I was wondering if you always do the same thing to watch Alias !
    Explain what you do before watching !!

    Me, I tell to my mother "shh !" and I put a tape in my VCR !

    What about you ????????

    :D

    Okay, for me, I check which TV has the clearest resolution, get a tape with enough room, put it in the VCR and watch! I tell anyone who disturbs me to shhush or bugger off!

    First of all i put a tape in the VCR and then you have to get comfortable, put pjs on and make sure your not hungry because it'll get annoying if you're hungry during the best show in the world.

    I sit on AIM and and tell all my non-alias buddies to watch it, cuz its gunna be great.
    Then they always say OK!
    Then they never do... its interesting hearing their excuses tho.

    Mind ya i have gotten a few ppl hooked... just not many.

    Have you noticed how hard it is to get someone to watch alias!?!?! I swear they need to move it to a night where people arent doing their homework they put off all weekend :) and a time where its not preceeded by a lame disney movie.

    Well, I don't even bother getting food, it's not like I remember about it. I'll get comfortable on the floor, remote in hand, hockey stick in the other, waiting to brandish it at someone who talks. (I love hockey!!) Sometimes if I'm lucky I'll watch it alone, but normally it's my sister all crowded up against me(*shudders* I hate it when people get too close), my dad on the bed, right behind me, breathing down my neck and getting spit all over me (*shudders again* I hate it when people breathe on me or look over my shoulder) And my mom is usually out in the kitchen raving for the whole hour about how stupid the show is...GRRR!

    I get food and a drink just in case you never know. Then I bug my friends like I do before every episode to watch it or else I'll duct tape then to a chair. I shut off all the lights so my family thinks I am sleeping peacefully so they don't bother me. Theres only so long you can go saying you didn't hear them screaming your name before they buy you hearing aids. Then I sit in the "comfy chair" and watch the best hour to tv. :D

    I put up my sign that says "Alias in progress...Do Not Disturb"...I put that at the foot of the stairs so no one goes up, then I get all comfy in pj's or whatever, put a tape in the VCR...this is all done a half hour before the show starts...just to be safe...

    I just try and find a TV where no one else is, take control of it, wait as patiently as I can for it to come on. Once it starts, I turn up the volume, tune everybody and everything else out. I never eat during it and I have to store all of the information in my brain so I can come here later and review it and I also think a lot while it is on, too. :)

    I get my pj's on like an hour before it, I get a tape ready at the same time. ALIAS nite is my
    Big-Bowl-of-Ice-Cream nite and also my popcorn nite and whatever else I want to eat. Although
    I start freaking out that I'll miss a sec of it so I run around the kitchen like a chicken with my
    head cut off trying to prepare. And I guess I turn the volume up like all the way when it's on cuz
    my mom is always going "Why is this up so loud?" Of course the only answer is "ALIAS is on!!"
    One time my dad changed the station the sec it went to a commercial and my sis and I just
    freaked out and yelled so loud. He changed it right back.
