No reaction to this yet? I'm the least qualified to start a conversation about this cause after the first season I hardly watched. So, I can't say exactly how cheesily convenient it is that Sloan is the boss of APO team. Reminds of Stone Cold losing his co-GM spot then coming back as Sheriff, just to have an excuse to have him on TV.
Just as I was saying to my buddy "Yo, remember the show just after the Super Bowl a couple years ago that opened with Garner in that skimpy lingerie?" we get a (much better) reprise to open this show. Wow.
Speaking of APO - new setting, just like 24...same crew, just unlike 24. We'll see how it works.
It was a Season 1 re-set only now they are secret good guys instead of secret bad guys. They can put Jennifer Garner in as many different tight skimpy outfits as they like (and I do like) and have her beat the crap out of a bunch of different bad guys but this show will only really catch on with the general viewers when the story lines get less convoluted.
I'll keep watching - it does make a good viewing combo with LOST

I love Lost, so I decided to watch Alias. I hadn't really followed the show because of its timeslot, but I'd heard some of what happened in the first three seasons. Still, this episode didn't seem like a good jumping-on point. I've missed too much (exciting-sounding) backstory.
I thought it was a pretty good show. Not the greatest, but I thought it was an improvement on last season. I'm glad to see Marshall alive and well (last year's finale they never said what happened to him after he died.) Too bad they killed the villian, I was starting to like him, then they killed him. He's no Sarc though.
ABC definitely knew what they were doing putting Lost and Alias back to back, both shows got their highest rating yet.
Originally posted by odessasteps Apparently, they are phasing out the Rimbaldi stuff, which is my favorite part of the show.
Iguess the Lena Olin contract issues HAVE been dealt with finally.
The Rimbaldi stuff was mind-bogglingly bad, in my opinion. It's very hard for me to suspend my disbelief when the twists and turns of the story just get crazier and crazier by the episode. I'm happy for them to return to some more 'down to earth' types of things.
The return of Sloan made me groan out loud. Seriously - Why would ANYBODY IN THE WORLD trust this guy, much less people who've been betrayed by him time and time again. However by the end of the episode I was digging the whole thing enough that I could let it go... for now.

Quite a dramatic episode to get us going for the new season. After the zillion soundbites from our cast about how epic this is going to be, we eventually get down to start the show. The first challenge is started immediately, and the winner gets flint.
