LOVE this kick butt agent

Jennifer Gardner is great in every episode. I was busy raising two small children when this show was on air so I missed out on it. I have been catching up & love this show. Every character is perfectly cast. And bonus - a young Bradley Cooper is in it! Highly recommend.

Fabulous entertainment and the actors are stellar. Romantic and intriguing all the way keeping your interest with many interesting twists and turns. Jennifer Garner is amazingly versatile and gorgeous always! Michael Vartan is incredibly good and compelling as one of the most charismatic and beautiful men I have ever seen on the screen. Why is he not already a MAJOR triple A star as I feel he is far more handsome and wonderful than many other A stars out there. Timing perhaps - needs a new agent maybe! All in all I was so sad to finish all the seasons through 5!

The Most Dramatic, Intense Season to me
Verified purchase
Season 3 was a big reset in the show certainly and sadly for me not a particularly popular one among fans. The biggest reason for this disdain seems to be the road block in the Sydney/Vaughn relationship, I don't watch shows for character romance personally and had no problem with this whatsoever. The other is the removal of Will and Francie from the show and as a result the decrease in emphasis on Sydney's home and social life. I liked Will's on and off investigation storyline in season 1 and Francie's double trouble arc in the back half of season two and the show was different without them for sure. I still loved the increase in intensity this season brought though and that's why for me it's roughly equal with season 2, ahead of the also very popular season 1, as my favorite of the show. Season three of Alias wasn't meant to warm hearts or really even to get to know the characters better- which I understand some people will have issues with- it was meant to bring an aggressive, dark twist to the overall show almost every week and it almost always succeeded in doing that. This is the most mysterious season of the show for sure- I don't think the other four seasons combined keep the audience and/or and most of the characters in the dark as much as this middle season of the show- and I for one have always loved that approach.

I started watching Alias in the dark in the early morning hours via TNT reruns- there would be five or six episodes straight one, maybe two nights a week- and I think this season more than any other excels in that type of format. If you watch one or two episodes a day (or more) on DVD I think you'll probably like season three more than the original run audience as well. Maybe it wouldn't have played as well watching one episode a week with all the time to think about the characters, their lives, etc. built in. I was essentially holding my breath from one episode to the next in five or six hour bunches and didn't have time to focus on anything but the cliff hanger that just ended the previous episode. Regardless of how I watched it I was completely hooked by season three when I first watched it and I am still hooked.

I consider the episode "Conscious," just before the halfway point of the season to be one of the two or three best of the series and to this day I still only watch it the same way in which I saw it for the first time- at night, in the dark, and in silence as I refuse to let anyone disturb me while this one is on the screen. It has to be one of my 15-20 favorites TV episodes of all time from any show. The episode "Full Disclosure," just two episodes later is an instant classic as well that closes out the big story line of the first half of the season beautifully and then at the very end starts the big story of the rest of the season in absolutely stunning fashion. Season 3 is what I'd call a dedicated arc season whereas seasons one and two were more balanced between arcs and characters. For me the story emphasis was amazing because I thought the arcs were good enough to warrant the extra attention. Many people did miss the personal touches from the previous two years though and I do at least understand this criticism, I just don't really care about it that much when I'm as engrossed in the stories as I still am when watching season three.

Wow!

Wow! Holly Hook has done it again with an action packed introduction to her new Deathwind series. The author managed to immediately grab my attention by diving straight into this novels drama filled plot. This is a fast paced book which doesn’t slow down – not even on the very last page. Holly Hook has an amazing gift which allows her to keep the reader on the edge of their seat throughout. This book is full of action, suspense, betrayal and drama. The author has done a brilliant job of making this novels plot move seamlessly.

Allie is a normal teenage girl apart from her slight quirk. She loves tornadoes! During her holiday instead of spending her time at the beach with other girls her age, her uncle takes her tornado chasing. Although all seems well at the beginning of the chase Allie’s life is about to be turned upside down. After a tornado hits their truck Allie wakes up in a foreign barn with the sound of peoples voices surrounding her. Allie later awakens again only to find out she has become the very thing she has spent her whole life fascinated with. Throughout this novel Allie is faced with her uncles repeated betrayals, the reason she was turned and the discovery she is not alone in her new life. During this book there were small hints of a love triangle between Allie, Tommy her best friend and Dorian another out breaker who Allie appears to have a connection with. Although there seems to be a love triangle it is not evident as that is not what the book was about. This novel is purely about Allie herself and the new life she is forced into. The only criticism I have for this book is although there is mention of a connection being formed between Dorian and Allie very little is mentioned about it. I would have liked to have seen more reason behind it and a bigger reaction to it.

Allie was an easy character to like she had to deal with large changes in a short space of time and her uncles constant betrayals. Both Tommy and Dorian were great characters in my opinion, some parts of their personalities were quite similar. This meant if you liked one chances are you would like the other.

Overall this was a fast paced book which I enjoyed apart from one small thing. This was a fantastic start to a new series and if you likes Holly Hook’s other books you will love this one as well. I would definitely recommend people try this books as soon as it is released.

I have to admit to waiting a couple of months before finally picking up season 3, regardless of that incredible cliffhanger at the end of season 2. The first eleven episodes deal with resolving Sydney's amnesia, coming to a close in the aptly titled episode 11, "Full Disclosure." Those eleven episodes, for what it's worth, are all outstanding shows with very little predictability and stellar acting from everyone involved. But then the show plummets into a state of limbo and encompasses an utter lack of direction. By the time episode 14, "Blowback," unfolds the show has hit rock bottom with the most boring "Alias" episode ever filmed. However, just two episodes later, episode 16, "Taken," challenges for the worst episode ever made, period. The final scene of "Taken" is so horribly written as to be painful; what makes it more so is that I know somebody got paid to write that rubbish! After that episode, however, the show had nowhere to go but up. The Rambaldi storyline picks up the remains and slowly but surely renewed my interest in what the characters were doing and where they were headed. It should be noted that during the first eleven episodes very little is even mentioned about Rambaldi and his devices and/or prophecies. I found this an enjoyable vacation for the show to take while the characters were never more interesting or more attractive to the eye. Sydney's mother is never seen, only relating online, in season 3, which is certainly a shame, but there are plenty of new and steadfast recurring characters to keep the show afloat and often very exciting. The acting, except in the aforementioned dud episodes, is as good as ever, Jennifer Garner leading the way admirably with veteran actors pitching around the corners successfully time and again. Ron Rifkin is especially memorable in many episodes. If you just finished season 2 and are simply aching for more, but are simultaneously apprehensive due to the many average reviews present for season 3, don't wait. I blazed through season 3 faster than either season 1 or season 2, the first eleven epsiodes in a matter of a few days, and I soonafter pre-ordered season 4 when I was finally finished. The first half of season 3 is superb; the next few episodes are a travesty to behold for any "Alias" fan; but the final shows bring it all back together and have the story back on track for a promising season 4. Thank you.

If Alias doesn't get better than Season 3, I quit

The merits of Alias are obvious if you watch seasons one and two. They lost their way in the third season, with frenetic action taking over -- taking too much time away from personal and interpersonal drama, characters acting out of character, and plots that were unbelievable even within the framework of a fantasy/spy/romance show. On any whim, the guys and gals would leave the CIA to go off on some rogue mission (where do they get the funding for all these insane worldwide operations?) and be back in time for supper, with no permanent repercussions.

I don't know if the Rambaldi stuff will ever go anywhere or not. But what made Alias special was the relationships anyway. And these have been folded, spindled, and mutilated in season 3. The season finale looks like another "good guy" is going to turn out to be a betrayer. I won't say who, but it is horrible that they spent three seasons building up a special relationship between two people who had big issues at the beginning of the series, and now it looks like they want to destroy all the trust that was built. Perhaps they are simply running out of ideas, and they are simply going to destroy all the characters we have grown to love, like one of those sick John Irving novels.

I never saw the series on TV, and I'm glad I've been able to watch the DVDs. I'm all caught up on the plot (implausible as it became) and ready for season four to begin in January. But unless they return to some of the scriptwriting sense and character consistency of the first and second seasons, I'm going to give up on it. I hope they can get back in the game. The first two seasons were magically good.
