|07:19 pm - Alias, anyone?|
I have decided to get myself hooked on the TV show Alias.
Anyone got a couple seasons on DVD I can borrow? I watch seasons pretty fast.
Until then, I'll just keep renting them.
I am, at the moment, partway through Season 1.

Aha, welcome back to the wonderful world of prime time serial drama. :) I never really got into Alias. Saw the pilot when it first aired, and it just didn't do much for me. I do still recommend House and Bones, though. And Monk when they actually get around to making new episodes again.
I second the recommendation for House.
Excellent. :) I could do without the occasional scene of gratuitous gore (this is also one of the main reasons I could never stay with ER for very long at a stretch). But the clever writing and Hugh Laurie's acting combine to form a sort of alchemy. He's the kind of sarcastic know-it-all that we wish we could get away with being in our own jobs.
See, I don't mind the gore (trying to get into med school myself, so I can't really be too squeamish) but I do like it that they don't go overboard with it.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
i third that rec, House is a freaking amazing show!
ya know i never got into that show, but I'm having the same feelings about Crossing Jordan, and I already own seasons of CSI which is like my heroin.
let me know if alias is any good
I'm enjoying it. It's simple and uncomplicated, and quite fun. They get a lot into each episode.
Haha. Tina seems to think I'm into the show because I find Jennifer Garner "hot", which is not the case. It's just sugary mind-candy: rotting my brain slowly from the inside out for fun.

One of the many shows that nontacitare
first got me hooked on, and I ended up more into than she. Though by now even I think it's gone on too long. (Hmm. X-Files-itis.)
My biggest and longest-standing complaint about it is the gratuitous torture scenes. And somehow Abrams has even managed to add that element to Lost
