Uncovering Alias: An Unofficial Guide

Stafford, Nikki

  • Find out what the show was really about.

    TV Guide called it “one of TV’s most enjoyably escapist hours ever.” Alias took Jennifer Garner from relatively unknown to a huge superstar. This show consistently appeared on critics’ Top 10 lists throughout its five seasons, has a large, devoted following, and won two Emmys and a Golden Globe. There’s no denying it: Alias is a smash hit. But what is the show about? Ask 10 viewers of the show and you’ll probably get 10 different answers. Even Alias ‘s most diehard fans can’t help but feel a general “huh?” after every episode, despite being able to follow the overreaching arc of this excellent show. But Uncovering Alias is here to help solve the viewer’s questions. Written as a companion to the show — but not a substitute for it — Uncovering Alias features

    • biographies of the recurring cast members of the show
    • a map of Rambaldi artifacts that have been uncovered by Sydney or other operatives
    • a list of terms used by agents on the show (and a brief history and explanation of how the agency works)
    • a list of the best sites on the Web
    • a trivia quiz
    • a history of the series and its various accomplishments
    • an extensive episode guide to the first three seasons, including analyses of each episode, highlights, an outline of each missions in case you missed it, a list of the James Bond–like gadgets used, music featured, locations Sydney travels to, and continuity errors for the nitpickers
    • sidebars listing fun facts such as the many uses of the number 47 in the series, the languages Sydney speaks and when, and more.
