Review: Alias - Resurrection

It's the truly awful season conclusion.

Well, the less said about that the better. There are some episodes of television where it's kindest just to point and laugh.

Crime Against Logic, Number One:

It's a fun idea having Lauren disguise herself as Sydney to destroy the CIA base. But they go too far, and give her a body suit that miraculously makes her look *exactly* like our Syd. With the extra height and the gerbil cheeks and everything. We used to only be able to do that with the Fabulous Francie's Cloning Machine. Next season, Jack Bristow flies to Mars, disguised as Brad Pitt.

Crime Against Logic, Number Two:

Sydney uses the exact same Miracle Technology to convince Sark that she's Lauren. With a voice modulator and everything. Hatefully poo.

Crime Against Logic, Number Three:

Katya. Her character has changed completely - there's no reason for her to be working with Sark and Lauren, and yet she is. That's pure todge. Made worse by her bloodhound-like ability to track down Lauren to Vaughn's torture garden. How?

Crime Against Logic, Number Four:

Lauren's last words. If you'd just been shot by your worst enemy, and were falling to your death, would you yell out the combination to a safe? Or would you say something snippy?

Crime Against Logic, Number Five:

The cliffhanger. Syd's reading really old news and Jack appears from nowhere. Tish.


Sloane and Nadia skip off hand in hand, obviously to have jolly adventures in a much better TV show.
