Drew Goddard to co-write Alias finale. This two hour episode should air on May 22nd.

Heh - since it's the series finale, that's quite a big sign of trust for Drew. Well done, DG.
Holy #(*$@#!!!

I worship this man, this is gonna be sweet!!!
Drew? Wouldn't it be an awesome twist if the finale ignored Sidney Bristow and just focused entirely on Rachel Gibson? And on Mr "Cooler-Than-Thou" Sark?

Heh. That episode "Bob" still cracks me up.
I was surprised when he got the 100th episode but this? Wow. You'd think someone who was writing on the show longer would get that.
Ignore Sydney? Noooo! I actually hate the way they introduced the two new agents this season (and I can't stand Rachel), I'm only now interested because of the event of the last two episodes. Congrats to Drew!
Okay, so we differ on Sydney and Rachel, but you gotta admit.. Sark. Totally Sark.
Sark rocks. Oh... and Drew does too :)

Drew is the KING of continuity. He's awesome at jumping into a series/season and reminding everyone of the tiny little continuity details that may have been forgotten and putting them front and center... and more importantly, making them MATTER.

I haven't watched Alias in some time (my wife and I have watched seasons 1-3 on DVD and are waiting for the last two seasons to come out), but I'm certain this series could only benefit from Drew's fine touch.
I remember how I became a Drew worshipper, after watching "Selfless".
Definetely one of the Buffy Season Seven finest moments, of course not later on he was also credited for "Coversations with Dead People", but as I remember reading somewhere, "CwDP", was credited for Drew and Jane, but was actually a larger effort with lotsa input by both the grand master himself and Marti Noxon.

Great for Drew. Really wonder what he'll do as a official staffer of Lost writign staff.

The boy has a bright future afead of him.
Sark is one of the reasons I'm excited about S5, Telltale (I cheered when he first showed up onscreen this season), so I agree wholeheartedly. I guess watching Rachel go through what Sydney had to in S1 was too redundant for me, although the actress portraying her does a good job.

You have to agree as well, Telltale, that the defining moment so far has been the return of Syd's mom...
Sure, it was a Keanu-goes-Wow moment, but I was also thinking, "Wasn't she dead? Twice? Sigh."
Well she wasn't dead at the end of season 4 so it was expected we'd see her again, just not this early.
Is Alias STILL on the air? Isn't it over? Didn't they like, blow her up or something? Am I the only one more concerned about whether or not Santos becomes the next resident president at the West Wing? Wasn't it terrible what happened to McGarry? Awwww.. Sydney who? I cannot believe for the life of me that this series has survived while so many better projects have crashed and burned. The editing can cause seizures. The storyline is the swiss cheese of continuity errors. Syndey changes costumes more often than Susan Lucci. None of the characters are realistically believable or likeable and in many cases defy the laws of physics by their very existence, and I refuse to believe all superspies look like they just walked off a photoshoot for Cosmo or GQ, even the geeky ones. Alias is a fashion infomercial parading itself as entertainment. ...Not that I'm bitter.

Alias has more in common with Mutant X than anything vaguely entertaining, and yet it thrives!

<.<

BRING BACK FREAKYLINKS! VR-5! STRANGE LUCK! LONE GUNMAN! BRISCO COUNTY! FIREFLY! TRU CALLING! DEAD LIKE ME! DOWN WITH ALIAS! DOWN WITH FAST-PACED, BRIGHTLY COLORED TELEVISION WITH PRETTY LIGHTS AND LOUD MUSIC TO HIDE THE FACT THE PRETTY PEOPLE CAN'T ACT AND THE PRODUCERS CAN'T WRITE.

So... you're claiming that Drew Goddard can't write? And that Amy Acker can't act?
Sounds good, kind of a shame that duties on M:I3 made it so J.J.Abrams couldn't write the finale though. Looking forward to the return of this show, 2nd best show on TV in my opinion (1 and 2 both returning in the same week, hoorah!), I'll definitely miss it.

"you're claiming that Drew Goddard can't write?"

I'm stating that even the great Drew Goddard can't save that sinking ship. The sooner Alias is over the better, far as I'm concerned.
