I Miss Alias
After last night's Dollhouse, that's pretty much all I have to say. I got this image from Alias Media, it's hard to believe Alias has been gone almost three years now. I've watched my five seasons of DVDs countless times, yet I still laugh, cry and watch with excitement every episode. I think it's safe to say us LTA bloggers have put Alias on a pedestal that can never be reached by any other show. Our expectations for shows like Dollhouse are through the roof, so it's no wonder we feel disappointed. I can't help but wonder (channeling Carrie Bradshaw), would we be so discouraged if we didn't have Alias to compare these shows to? My initial thought is no, we wouldn't be, but it's not like other shows haven't evoked similar human emotions to the characters and plots (Lost, Firefly...). I think that's what I'm looking for, a show where I actually care about the characters and care about their stories. Is that really so much to ask?
