Alias, Season One

So the backdrop of me muttering impolite things about the sweater I'm knitting possibly for the shop, I saw the rest of the first season of Alias, generously loaned from alosersdream and ambermystery about a billion years ago.

First thought: Tammy is going to disown me completely. Vaughn (sp?) kinda bugs me and I don't really like Syd/Vaughn as a result. I tried! I just... gah. Sorry. It seems to weaken them both rather than strengthening anything. I've met Sark, who apparently everyone else will 'ship with Syd come a future season, and... well, I kind of want to punch him in the face, so I'm not sure I could go there either. Weirdly, I think I might be a total noromo for this series. I could've liked the random fling Sydney had with the ex-boyfriend who ended up being evil or something, except for the part where they seemed SOOOO physically awkward with each other. So, yes. No OTP for Sydney.

I am totally watching for the father-daughter bonding. OMG. I shriek with joy whenever they have Bristow Family moments. I'm so glad I sat through the clip-show episode just for the "Hi honey!" moment in the van that made me squeee for like five minutes. YAYYYYY. Maybe the fact that Syd's main role for me seems to be as a complicated daughter figure (to both Jack and Sloane) is what's keeping me from wanting to pair her up with anyone sexually? Who knows. Regardless, Sloane and Jack's respective relationships with their wives are much more interesting.

I keep really, really wishing that everyone would just stop with the Rambaldi crap. I had high hopes that this was just a small thread, but I have a bad feeling this is not going to go away. If I'm wrong, please tell me, because that would make my day! I don't understand why they can't run around being superspies *without* weird ancient mystics and stuff. This is why I miss the cold war! You could blame the Soviets instead of the RENAISSANCE ITALIANS! Though how badly did you want Mulder and Scully to show up when the FBI was detaining Sydney for being paranormal? Oh, I so did.

And what the heck? As soon as I warm up to Will and stop wanting him to get tortured a lot, he gets tortured a lot. Figures.

So, the season ends with Emily possibly-dead, Vaughn having been swallowed up by a magic 8-ball (TELL ME the window didn't look like that! It so did.), that one slimy guy all killed dead, Will not killed dead, and OMGWTFSYDNEYSEVILMOMMY, which was not at all a surprise, but very exciting nonetheless. This bodes well!

Oooo, what to watch next? I have DVDs that require watching and you must all vote, mwahahahah. Not because you care, but because you cannot resist the ticky boxes. :) (HEY! It's not that I can't make my own simple decisions... I just... er, like to make decision-making a team sport.)
