Revisiting Alias so soon after seeing the entire 5 seasons should have been a chore.
Instead, it’s a delightful opportunity to pick up on silly details left unnoticed the first time around.
For example, in the Season 1 episode entitled “The Coup”, Sydney Bristow finds herself having to infiltrate a casino in Las Vegas. In order to do this, she needs to make sure that Dixon’s hilarious disguise as a Jamaican ambassador fits in with the casino’s records.
She is briefed and it goes something a little bit like this:
So Sydney finds her way to some computer eventually and gets to work.
I like that bit: syd@ laptop$ open
Oh, and: syd@ laptop$ init razor-prisim
It’s all great.
Alright, lets see that “face recognition”.
lol I like Dixon.
Ok, what’s Will Tippin doing in the meantime?
You guessed it: being a little computer hacker himself!
Investigating secret organisation SD-6, Will finds himself forced to go up to some convict’s old office (which miraculously hasn’t changed in the 8 years he was put away) to download a file full of valuable information.
Why is it dolphins always prompt so much genius?
