Review

If you're of a certain age, you may recall a time when you were a real die-hard fan of television series. I was an avid fan of a little spy show called The Man from UNCLE when I was growing up in the 1960s, and while I think the show is a bunch of corn now, I sure loved it then for what I took to be true espionage excitement. James Bond movies have come close, but there's always been this sex thing and burdensome doomsday devices that take up most of the plot. I had to wait almost four decades to come up with something that created a fan's enthusiasm and excitement inside me that rivals what I felt about the old UNCLE show. That show, on Sunday nights, airing not on HBO or Showtime or any other fancy schmancy cable channel, but on plain old ABC-TV is the best spy show to come along ever in the history of TV. Am I exagerating? Yes. For good reason. This show is fantastic. Great special effects. Dense plots. Wonderful spy technology stuff. If somebody had made the CIA look this glamorous when I was a kid, I'd be Nathan Muir right now working out how to get Brad Pitt out of trouble or something. Going into its third season this fall, Alias is a smart, good-lucking, fun show loaded with action and suspense. Don't miss it.
