I check in periodically. I log in and read comments, look at previously posted articles, browse news sites for information on the former stars of Alias and the many writers, producers and directors behind the show. Yesterday I realized, I completely missed the anniversary of Alias’ demise- the series finale.
I have been chatting back and forth with Page and Uncle (see the post below), throwing out justification for season 4 or lack of justification. We have been discussing the changes in Alias from season 1 to season 4 and how the lack of Executive support, horrible writers and an obviously tired cast and crew caused Alias to cave in on itself in season 5. Aside from all this discussion, which might seem harsh and more like a verbal bashing- I love that I can still pop in the DVD’s and watch all that is good about the show. I can remember key lines and certain moments that have defined the characters we love, and enveloped us in their world.
I will admit- I still get angry. I get frustrated. It is so easy to watch a season 1 episode and curse the sky- “Why? Why TV Gods, did you have to take away such a genuine program. Sydney had her whole life ahead of her!” I know it seems rather ridiculous now, to get all bent out of shape because of a TV show that ended a year ago. Some ask why I still post, why Let’s Talk is still standing long after the final moments of its purpose have come and gone. I don’t know. I can’t explain it. I just can’t let go. Not yet.
“We’ll find each other. We always find each other…”
She looks rather reluctant to say goodbye, doesn't she?
