Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_3'); })Alias is a Spy Drama (2001-2006) by J. J. Abrams about Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner), an agent for SD-6, black-ops division of the CIA, who discovers that, whoops, it wasn't a black-ops division of the CIA so much as a faction of a powerful terrorist group called The Alliance; so she becomes a double agent. She then discovers her father, a supposed salesman, is also a double agent for the CIA. Sydney then has to divide her loyalties between a team of good men at SD-6 who simply don't know their boss is the devil, and a team of mostly good men and a few pricks at the real CIA.Pretty much a show full of Impossible Mission episodes, with a twist — Sydney must perform her mission for the CIA, while appearing to be performing her mission for SD-6. There's also a large element of soap opera though, as she learns all kinds of secrets about her parents and their Mysterious Past.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_2'); })Unusual for its willingness to embrace a fanciful Story Arc about a centuries-old prophecy. The first four seasons all featured a subtle, never explained Myth Arc about an Italian inventor with a penchant for odd drawings and fanciful words. Somehow this 15th century prophet is still relevant today. His designs have been implemented and his writings dissected. And apparently the global intelligence community has nothing better to do than go to war over every piece of technology he might have even glanced at.Notable for the fact that the show was ReTooled three separate times. Each time, character relationships and roles changed in fundamental ways. The show is also notable in the sheer number of A-grade Hollywood actors who partook in the series, ranging from the main cast (Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper are but two examples), to memorable recurring players (Quentin Tarantino and Djimon Hounsou as two more examples).Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_content_1'); })One of the leaders in Wig, Dress, Accent.Not to be confused with the Marvel Comics book Alias. For the TV series adaptation of the comic set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, go here.

Death by Origin Story: Syd was perfectly happy with her job(s) and life and had no interest in digging up dirt on SD-6 — until she told her fiance she was a spy for the CIA. He lived maybe 5 microseconds after that. He was fine until he left a message on her answering machine using a wiretapped line. If he'd only paid attention...

Happy Fun Ball
 Alias / int_1ae71783
comment
The recurring image of a red ball, suspended in midair, which is revealed to be the Mueller Device, a plague carrier. In "Truth Be Told", Sydney steals one from Taipei. In "Almost Thirty Years", she and Vaughn find a room-sized one in Taipei as well. And in "Search and Rescue", it's revealed that Arvin Sloane and Elena Derevko have built a city-sized one over Svogda, Russia. It's been dubbed by fans "the Happy Fun Ball". No, you should not taunt it.

Parental Abandonment
 Alias / int_297ab1b9
comment
Parental Abandonment: During the first season we learn that Sydney's mother apparently died in a car accident when she was six. However, at the end of the Season 1 finale, we learn that she faked her own death and now leads a criminal organization. Upon meeting Sydney for the first time as an adult, she proclaims, "You must have known this day would come. I could have prevented all this, of course. You were so small when you were born. It would have been so easy." Repeatedly. One thing is consistent through all the reboots and changes is that Irina is not trustworthy and won't be there when Sydney needs her. Sydney, of course, repeatedly trusts her over and over and over in spite of this. Jack also counts, considering in the first season, Sydney seems to have no personal relationship with him whatsoever. She describes Jack as cold and emotionally distant, having never been there when she really needed him.

Lingerie Scene
 Alias / int_355bc288
comment
Lingerie Scene: "Phase One," Notable in that this aired literally seconds after the Super Bowl, but a year before the Janet Jackson incident so the Moral Guardians didn't make too much noise. It also was actually the lowest-rated posts Super Bowl shows on record - you have to go back to 1975 for a worse performer. Sydney is quite often shown in lingerie when getting dressed or getting undressed. Passage I/II: Jack (and the audience) gets to see Irina Derevko in bra and panties, and she gives her 'husband' a good, long look. Just to establish that Irina is still smokin' hot, which she is, and to remind us that Jack isn't over her, which is probably true. More like unquestionably true. The question was what did he (and their daughter) mean to her?

Sherlock Scan: This happens frequently, done by almost all protagonists and villains alike.. In Detente, an op is almost aborted when they realize the mark they have very little intel on is staying in to watch his football team on the telly. Nadia and Sydney come up with an infiltration plan from a single glance at his hotel room through a surveillance camera, which gives them all the clues they need to immediately conclude the man has a long-term girlfriend who lives off his money, likes to party, is bored and angry with him, and is currently in the hotel bar looking for some fun at her boyfriend's expense.

Not Even Bothering with the Accent
 Alias / int_43b154c9
comment
Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Melissa George as Lauren Reed. They wrote the character as American, cast an Australian who can do a serviceable American accent, and make her an American raised in England. The result was an Australian accent jumbled in with vague attempts at sounding American and English at different points. Inexplicably her parents, played by Raymond J. Barry and Peggy Lipton, Americans who were supposed to be doing American accents, would randomly use British inflections for no apparent reason. Even by the standards of a show where the accents were questionable much of the time, the Reeds' accents were awful.

Late-Arrival Spoiler: Oh yes. Everything from the pilot, with its Nothing Is the Same Anymore plot — Sydney's father is a double agent, her fiance is killed by Sloane, and Sydney becoming a double agent herself — but there are a few other things that you will find yourself spoiled for by looking at just about any press for the show: Sydney's mother is Not Quite Dead, and she's an ex-KGB operative. Sydney has a long-lost sister named Nadia. There are doubles of characters running around.

comment
Done, very much with a wink, in "Phase One"- the opening shot of the episode is Sydney in her black underwear and holding a riding crop. Immediately after the obligatory slow-mo shot, the guy tells her to put on the other one... cut to her in just as scanty RED lingerie. This episode, by the way, was right after the Super Bowl.

Villain Decay: One of the saddest things about season five is how it reduces Irina from a woman with complex loyalties and even more complex motivations to a simple Well-Intentioned Extremist Evil Matriarch. Most definitely a point of Fanon Discontinuity; Irina's storyline really ends when Jack lets her walk away at the end of "Before the Flood".

Most of the characters lives a marred by the death and/or betrayal of loved ones. It certainly doesn't help when our heroes are forced to work with the bad guys and double-crossers or the people they thought were dead but actually weren't.

There are other, more minor ReTools, but these are the major ones. Season 5 is sort of a Retool, but it's constantly changing and never settles. The interesting thing is that all of the original characters are maintained (minus Will and Francie) despite all of the changes in the show. The same might be said of any show, but in Alias all of the characters completely change teams at least once and repeatedly betray one another, some of them over and over, in ways that would destroy most real (and even most TV) relationships.

Part-Time Hero: Sydney tries this for a few seasons, but over the course of the show all of her non-Spy friends have either also become spies/gone into witness protection, or they are murdered, cloned, or cloned and then murdered, so she's pretty much forced to go all-in.

In "Double Agent", Sydney is in a swimming pool in In Cayo Concha, trying to attract the attention of Markovic's security chief. She gets a Sexy Surfacing Shot when getting out of the pool in Slow Motion wearing a blue bikini and both her target and the camera slowly pans up and down her body. Getting his attention, she makes her way into a cabana while he follows her, even taking off her bikini top to shower her Toplessness from the Back and he follows her inside... where he finds Vaughn and Sydney who easily overpower him.

Bad Ass Family: Almost; the characters are related somehow and sometimes they even go on missions together. It's dangerous enough to mess with Sydney, but if you mess with Sydney and Jack at the same time, you're just asking for trouble. Also, the two-part episode in season 2, "Passage", where Irina goes undercover with Jack and Sydney to India as a family of tourists to recover six stolen nuclear warheads, is a badass family vacation if there ever was one.

How's Your British Accent?
 Alias / int_d13e75b2
comment
How's Your British Accent?: Happens a few times. Sark uses David Anders's natural American accent once or twice, for example. There is also an episode where Sydney and Vaughn are undercover as Russian spies, and when a real Russian spymaster asks them how their English is, Sydney says a few words in heavily-accented English in order to avoid undertaking a mission. However, as elite Deep Cover Agents, they should have flawless American accents, and the spy calls their bluff.

Manchurian Agent: Martin Shepard, who was brainwashed to be a killer for SD6. In a clear homage to The Manchurian Candidate he was triggered by someone reciting a poem ("No Man Is an Island" by John Donne) then do whatever they said. He would then forget everything if it was recited again. After he began to break free of the conditioning, Shepard checked into a mental institution, and eventually broke free entirely, but not before helping Sidney. It's revealed he's the one who killed her boyfriend Danny under the command of SD6.
