    While Digest's main focus is daytime, some of us also get a little--how to
    put this delicately?--obsessed with certain prime-time shows that strike our
    soap-loving fancy. ALIAS is one of them. As a spy show, it offers more
    breathless excitement than many Bond films; as a relationship drama, it's as
    affecting as FELICITY in it's heyday. Imagine our glee when it won the
    coveted post-Super Bowl spot, then exceeded our expectations.

    It started with a gripping mission in which our butt-kicking heroine, Sydney
    (Jennifer Garner), basically brought down a plane, then continued with more
    intrigue and great supporting performances from Victor Garber (Jack), Carl
    Lumbly (Dixon), Greg Grunberg (Weiss), and guest star Rutger Huaer (Geiger).
    In the end, two shockers: Evil mastermind Sloane revealed that not only has
    he been manipulating everyone for ages, he has a new operative who happens
    to be a dead ringer for Syd's best friend, Francie. The chilling pan to the
    real Francie's corpse was the definition of cliffhanger.

    But who are we kidding? The scene no one could stop raving about was when
    Syd and C.I.A. handler Vaughn (Michael Vartan) strode toward each other, and
    the camera spun dizzily around them in that kiss, which could not have been
    more perfectly executed, given how long we'd waited.

    Action, torture, a kiss to end all kisses--it was a good night to be an
    ALIAS fan. One episode superbly captured the thrill ride that is ALIAS,
    while exploding it onto a new track as a gift to loyal viewers and a hook
    for newcomers. Simply put, this show rocks. Let the obsession continue....
