I was also surprised to find Mr. Bradley Cooper, and whoa, the show is a product of J.J. Abrams, the new Star Trek guy.
I used to listen to extreme metal in years past, but I've gone soft, and some of this show is dark for me, but it is thrilling. So this is Metal Jennifer Garner for me.
The season is very well crafted, but I feel it is played out too much in certain episodes, so I won't follow up with the next seasons. But that is how tv series go. It is nice how you can watch any episode in this season, because they fill you in with My name is Sydney Bristow intro. It was cool how she is a spy, then a double agent, THEN, she's part of a five hundred year old prophecy, the plot thickens; nice touch.
The soundtrack and original scores I dig. They've got Enya, 90's pop/alternative and an industrial rock thing going on, and the commentaries on select episodes are informative and insightful for the trivia buffs.
Season 1 wastes no time in getting started with the major story lines of the show yet somehow you quickly identify with the supporting characters and find yourself attached to their development as well. Will's investigations into SD6, the murder of Danny, etc. comprise some of the great moments of the season I believe. The balance between action and mythology on one hand and daily life, supporting character, etc. on the other was perhaps better achieved in this season- season 2 did this nicely as well though- than any other I've seen on television and if you're looking to find a fun, intense show that still lets you identify with the people you're watching then I think the first two seasons of Alias will be among the best you could ever hope to find.
