Product Description

The action explodes in ALIAS' phenomenal fourth season. When Sydney leaves the CIA to join a powerful new Black Ops unit, she has no idea of the reunion in store for her. Family secrets are revealed and old adversaries come together for a year of betrayal, suspense, and breathtaking surprises. It's nonstop excitement -- from the spectacular two-hour first episode to the stunning impact of the season's final seconds. Experience all 22 heart-stopping episodes of season four in a sensational six-disc set. ALIAS features "the best acting and most addictive plot lines on television," raves CNN.com. Now with exclusive bonus features, including a conversation with Jennifer Garner, bloopers, deleted scenes, and more, this spectacular set makes TV's most exciting show even better.


True to form, at the beginning of its fourth season J.J. Abrams' Alias proceeded to reinvent itself yet again--and the results looked quite a bit like the first season, but with a decided twist. Super agent Sydney Bristow (Emmy nominee Jennifer Garner) found herself once more working for a covert secret-ops group that was "off the books" and headed up by Arvin Sloane (Ron Rifkin) as she was partnered with... Hey, wait, wasn't Sloane a bad guy before? Well, yes, he was, but having been "rehabilitated" from his evil ways, he's now Sydney's new boss--nevermind the fact that he's trampled all over her life in more ways than one--and head of the CIA's new super-secret division, APO (for Authorized Personnel Only), which also includes all of Sydney's old friends, as well as her dad (Victor Garber) and love interest Vaughn (Michael Vartan). But as Sydney and Vaughn struggle with their budding relationship in the wake of his wife's death, and Syd also comes to realize her father may have had quite a bit to do with her mother's abrupt disappearance, a few monkey wrenches are thrown into the works. There's the emergence of South American agent Nadia (Mia Maestro), who's Syd's half sister--and the daughter of Sloane; the reappearance of Syd's nasty nemesis, Anna Espinosa (Gina Torres); a Sloane doppelganger (Joel Grey); and a mysterious cabal intent on harnessing the power of the legendary Rambaldi device.

Alias was definitely all over the map during its fourth season, and a few off-screen factors managed to take their toll onscreen as well. The end of a real-life relationship between Garner and Vartan gave Sydney and Vaughn's scenes a lack of romantic spark, but at the same time a decided tension, as the two warily circled each other and deepened their relationship; they clicked best in the episode "Welcome to Liberty Village," in which the duo infiltrates a Stepford-like suburb as a picture-perfect couple. And the absence of Lena Olin, as Syd's mother, was definitely felt, as her character became a looming presence despite little screen time. Where Alias succeeded this year was in the dramatic impact individual episodes had: "Nocturne" was a captivating tale of Sydney in the throes of deadly hallucinations; "The Orphan" affectingly fleshed out the enigmatic Nadia's background; "In Dreams" (directed by Garner) probed the subconscious of bad guy Sloane, who wasn't as evil as you might think; and "Mirage" forced Sydney to impersonate her mother in her father's fevered dreams. Don't worry, there was plenty of action--especially in the season's final episodes, which prominently featured a deadly Sonia Braga--and despite its ups and downs, Alias remained one of the most intelligent, compelling dramas on television. --Mark Englehart

I'm an admittedly big fan of "Alias," so you'll probably have to take some of my comments with a grain of salt. Season Four, for the most part, is likeable and fun, suffering only in comparison to the heights the series reached in its first two years. Even though "Alias" creator J.J. Abrams seems to have run out of ideas regarding the series, he's established the characters and situations well-enough so that series can continue on sheer momentum for a while.

This season, like every other season, focuses on the adventures of a small group of CIA agents who work together. Despite the opening credits' insistence on the importance of series star Jennifer Garner, this season is more a team effort than ever before. There's Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner), who's a multilinguist and a master of disguise. There's her love interest Michael Vaughn (Michael Vartan), a decent straight-arrow of an agent troubled by his recent past. There's her father Jack Bristow (Victor Garber), who is alternately grim and emotionally unavailable, and her step-sister Nadia (Mia Maestro). They're led by the enigmatic Arvin Sloane (Ron Rifkin), a former CIA agent who turned into both a terrorist and a criminal mastermind similar to a James Bond villain and now claims to have been reformed. Sydney has a long history with Sloane, as does the rest of her team. As if to prove that you don't have to be part of Sydney's inner circle to work for the CIA, the remainder of the team (all in subordinate roles) include a geeky comic relief computer genius named Marshall, a strong experienced backup agent named Dixon, and a formerly occassional guest character promoted to series regular named Weiss, who serves mainly as comedy relief as well as Nadia's love interest.

An amazing thing happened in the last minutes of Season 4's penultimate episode "Search and Rescue": I had a feeling flood over me that I hadn't felt watching Alias since it was revealed Lauren was evil at the end of season 3's "Full Disclosure": I was hooked. It had been so long since Alias was the vital, nail-biting show of high excitement and high melodrama that I almost didn't recognize it anymore. Now, here was Lena Olin exibiting the full capacity of her greatness - equal parts loving mother and twisty snake, Jack was at the edge of his wits, Sydney was frantic and focused, and Nadia, thankfully, wasn't that important except to earn welcome gooeyness out of Olin. How exactly did this happen?

Season 3 was widely viewed as a disappointment at the time, but at the beginning of season 4, it seems fans like me were nostalgic for its chaos and ambition. To say the format for the season stretched the limits of credibility does a disservice to the limits of credibility. A top secret CIA agency under the control of Arvin Sloane despite his so recently having been sentenced to death for treason?! One with the lamest acronym in the history of acronyms (that being APO: Authorized Personnel Only)? No amount of Rimbaldi-artifact-transferring makes that swallowable. And the theoretical reconfiguation of the show, while noble, only made matters worse - a covert-op-of-the-week sameness took over in an ostensible attempt to make this look like season 1 again. But as this opened the door for plotlines that ranged from ridiculous (a Russian Stepford Village of secret uber-spies) to embarrassing (umm, vampires?), any number of us long time fans were about to give up.

I'm not talking about the show. I'm talking about amazon! Alias was on the list when I signed up for Amazon Prime and now that I've paid for the year it's no longer available in prime.

OK now I see how you do business, BS.

After the disappointment of season 3 to many fans, Alias goes back to basics. Alias basically started over. A new night of the week helped Alias grab its best ratings ever for season 4, and unlike the first 3 seasons most of these episodes play as stand alones, and with the complexity of most of the storylines, that may have helped new viewers jump into the action without needing to hear the back story.

Being a hardcore Alias fan, I didn't like the idea of stand alones at first. Part of the reason I love the show is the season long storyline that twists and turns after every episode. Having said that, the first two episodes of season 4 blew me away, with one exeption. The cliffhanger of season 3 isn't even resolved until the beginning of episode 2. That bothered me a lot at first but the more and more I watched this season the more I think it worked out brilliantly. The new plan to make stand alone eps they resolved it in such a way that didn't require you to have seen the cliffhanger of season 3.

There is a season long storyline that starts off slow, really slow, but toward the halfway mark of season 4 it picks up pace at a good speed and it well worth it by the end. The last few eps of season 4 are near perfection, but so are several mid way through.

The episodes in the middle are stand alones as I said but have a continuing storyline thats easy to catch on to but not the main point of the story. Two of the best of the season are episodes 6 and 7, "Nocturne" and "Detente".

The packaging is beautiful. Out of the 5 seasons of this show this set is the best to look at. It doesn't hurt that everyone in this season looks their best. A very nice set with tons of extras as well.

So if anyone has yet to see a full season and is just interested in watching a few (after seeing it you'll want to watch them all!) this is the one to grab since it's easy to follow and will get you hooked immediately.
