Back on track? It may be on a track, but it's a completely different one than it started on. As a viewer from day one, it was a moderately entertaining episode but it was simply a Buffy/Angel script shoehorned into Alias characters. Same for the next one, the Angel castoff writers trot out the good old 'character hallucinates and turns evil/hurts friends' script.
Too bad the show left the intrigue, plotline, and continuing story on the cutting room floor, leaving me with scraps. It's Sunday afternoon syndicated filler at the moment. There was no such thing as a throwaway episode in Season 1.
And before it's brought up, anyone who complains about Rambaldi never watched the show to begin with, cause he's been in it since the start.
Exactly why I stopped watching again. I think I'll just pick up the recaps on Television Without Pity because they're vastly more entertaining than Alias itself. I had such high hopes that the writers from Angel would help out, and while I'll admit to it being way early in the season, what I've seen thus far is lame-o. I'll go back and watch the first season discs for a show that's got so much energy crammed into one hour that it's sometimes hard to just sit there and watch.
