Alias; The Following

Media Monday: Alias

So, I started watching Alias last week on Netflix, and I just couldn’t get into it.  I really, really wanted to.  I mean, hello, kick-ass spy chick, lots of intrigue and over 100 episodes to feast on.  But I never really bought Sydney as a spy.  Two pieces I loved?  Her portrayal of the grief in losing her fiancee.  It was fabulously done, and made me root for her.  The second?  Bradley Cooper, of course.  What’s not to love there?  So to say I was disappointed that I didn’t care for the intrigue bit is a bit of an understatement.

The Following premieres tonight after Bones, and I can’t WAIT to watch it!
