So, I finally started to watch the new season of Alias this weekend. I had the first 4 episodes TiVo'd, so I had a mini Marathon yesterday. So far, I like the new season. My impression is that they are trying to make it new watcher friendly. Now that they have created their own SD-6, we will hopefully have a lot less Rambaldy talk. It also appears as if you can jump in anywhere in the season and not be completely lost. It seems more episode based rather than one continuous storyline. With that being the case, I may be able to convice my wife to watch it with me even though she hasn't seen the first 3 seasons.
