I wathed the new episode last night.

A bit silly, but very good.

She looked really cute in her jeans/white vest/bandana outfit.

Just have to mention the last scene...realisation slowly spreading over Jack's face...brilliant!

I can't wait until next week now...

Great, now you've seen it discussion time.

Why the hell did they just leave it up to the French to bring Sark to the States?

It was just too obvious he was going to escape. :D

It was also painfully obvious that Dixon's kids were going to in danger.

And as for that poison necklace thing - surely they could have thought of something better than that. :(

Sorry, rant over.

Yes, I see...

The neckace was stupid, I'm OK with Sark being brought back by the French, he did have someone on the inside to help him escape, so even if the US did escort him, it would have still happened.

The kids thing was very obvious, but I liked how the Covenant tricked them, and the whole double bluff for what they really wanted.

I loved the fact that Jack noticed what Lauren said.

Hated Laurens Dad. Looks like Spy Mom will be back if the story is heading the way I think.

Spoiler -

She will be. :(

You know for sure?

Excellent!

There were rumours

She demanded more pay per ep, and they wouldn't do it, so she didn't sign up.

I love Spy Mom! Can't wait!

I'm going to start watching S2 again now!

:D

OK, so the first 4 episodes were quite fun. I can only assume that I missed this the first time round due to the fact that anything I've ever seen on Sky has turned out to be shit. dark Angel, Jake 2 pointing cunting 0 - all rubbish.

But it was 1 in the morning when they looked inside that suitcase and gasped, and I *had* to find out what happened next. Suhweet. Only annoyance is that Jennifer Garner reminds me far too much of my crazy ex.

Do you know the significance of the number 47?

When I was looking at an episode guide the other day they pointed out all the times it appeared and it's a hell of a lot.

You know, I've never noticed it.

What episode guide was it?

I've got the oficial companion book for season 1, which is lovely.

Don't think they did one for season 2 though.

Boo!

I love that bit with the briefcase!

Glad you're liking it so far!

I noticed this too. Here are a few -

SPOILERS up to S3:

There were 47 artefacts.

Page 47 had that picture.

An evelator stopped at level 47 in one episode

Server 47 was used in another (something important but I can't remember!)

More too which I can't remember.

Pretty cool stuff.

I'm looking for the site at the moment but found this in my searching -

The symbol <0> is the sign of the "Magnific Order of Rambaldi". This symbol is shown in one frame of the opening credits, right before the word Alias appears.

A mini interview with Ricky Gervais about his role on alias:

Office Star's New Alias

by David Hochman

TV Guide Online: Aside from The Office, you haven't really acted before. What was it like starring in a big TV action-drama?

Ricky Gervais: The hardest part was keeping straight-faced. Everybody around me was in black and cool and wearing Gucci and Armani and guns, and there I was in a jumper looking like a country fisherman. I couldn't take myself seriously. I just pretended to be Jack Bauer from 24.

TVGO: Who do you play?

SPOILER

Gervais: All I can tell you is he's a very, very bad man indeed. An international terrorist. Let's just say he's somebody I most certainly wouldn't like to sit next to on an airplane.

TVGO: Still, it sounds like a pretty cushy gig compared to the BBC.

Gervais: I admit, it was hard not to become a diva. The first day, I was intimidated. The next day, it was old hat. The third day, I was blasé and by the fourth, they were lucky I showed up.

TVGO: Is Jennifer Garner as beautiful as she appears on TV?

Gervais: Not compared to me, actually. People will realize why they had to get me on the show. They needed my body.

TVGO: What was your most surreal Hollywood moment of the week?

Gervais: Aside from Jennifer Aniston saying the name "Ricky Gervais" [when she announced the Golden Globe winner], it was looking out in the audience and seeing Danny DeVito, Michael Douglas and Jude Law staring silently at me. All I could tell myself was, "Say something, you idiot!"

TVGO: What did you learn about Hollywood?

Gervais: Contrary to popular belief, people in Hollywood aren't hung up on agents and helpers and how they look. At least not all the time. But more to the point, I realized I am a writer and not an actor.

TVGO: Does this mean you're not staying stateside?

Gervais: I don't want to pop up as a Mr. Brit on every other television program. I've done it once. Now I need to go home to where it rains and where I can walk everywhere.

TVGO: If NBC's upcoming version of The Office goes badly, will you care?

Gervais: Nope, because it doesn't matter to me. I've done my bit. I wish them all the luck in the world. Two hundred and fifty million Americans don't know me or The Office. It's like somebody doing a cover of your song. You don't hang about the studio going, "No wait, don't sing it like that. Softer. Softer!" So my life's not going to change

Rightio.

Finished S2.

Liked last episode.

Fortunately S3 will have to wait a couple of weeks so I can come up with my own feverish speculation.

This episode is one of my favourites, I love it!

I hope you've been taping them off Bravo!

Or are going to start downloading.

I've just come up with a mega theory for what's going to happen at the end of season 3, only 6 episodes left until it finishes.

Season 3 develops really well, Sydney is almost like an entirely different person.

Not surprising I suppose, after that finale!
