I also (finally!) started watching my Alias Season 1 DVD's. I've only managaed to watch three episodes thus far. I'd forgotten so much. Francie's fiance, the rather lo-tech looking CIA offices, Syd believing her mother dead, and the hostility between Syd and Vaughn. Granted, she did have some trust issues when she first met him. Nothing like having your fiance murdered by your boss, discovering your father has lied to you most of your life, and then being informed you are working for the very people you think you are trying to bring down. I suppose it could sour you on people even when they are as cute as Michael Vartan. :)
As for last nights Alias, I don't have much to say so I'll forgo the cut tag. It was a solid, if not spectacular outing, with at least an interesting twist at the end.
