Now that Alias is gone, there are many roads this blog can take. I know that recently it's been a place to pick apart the finale for holes and indescrepancies and it has been very cool to see who remembers what from way back in season 1 and how it fits or doesn't fit into the finale. I understand how this picking might be a little unnerving for those of you were satisfied and happy with the ending.
I hope that it is understood that I can not satisfy everyone's wants and needs when it comes to publishing posts, expressing my ideas and thoughts- and it is not my intent to lessen your feelings for Alias or the finale. I opened this blog because I had ideas to share and some knowledge and insight about storytelling, writing and character development. I think everyone is aware of my thoughts on the finale, and I want to thank those of you who have supported me or who have given me the respect and allowed me to have those thoughts. I hope you feel that Jenn, SRG and I have given you the same support and respect. I justify my bitterness with how much I love and understand Alias, not just as a TV show, but as literature- a book on screen if you will. (Haven't you ever read a book you love and you get to the end and think, "What? That's it?")
I am happy that the blog has been a place of middle ground- some with great love for the finale and all it was and some who were left a bit disappointed and wanting more.
I would like the blog to become a place where we can talk about writing. I started blogging about Alias because of the storytelling, content, the plot and storylines and of course, the characters. Okay, and because of Michael Vartan. Haha! Talking about the writing isn't just about discussing our favorite quotes and shocking twists- but really digging into who the characters were, where the stories went right and wrong and how Alias got from point A, the pilot, to point B, the finale.
(Angie, Uncle and Donna- I hope you will contribute your writing knowledge!!!)
I would also like for us to talk about the production, the behind-the-scenes of making a successful TV show. How are shows like Alias made? What type of preparation went into making the show?
It will be interesting to read your comments as Jenn, SRG and I post about some of the nitty gritting of Alias and what made it exceptional.
If you have other ideas about how to keep Alias alive, and if you are interested in starting your own blog, be it for Alias or anything else, I very much recommend www.blogger.com. The site is free and easy- I post all my sites through Blogger. I would gladly post a link to your blog here and share the wealth.
I would love now to read your feedback about the new direction of the blog. Good, bad, ugly? What are your thoughts and ideas?
