AKA

It's out of control. Someone please tell me they have had this sickness before. It's wretched. It won't stop and there's absolutely nothing I can do about it. At least right now.

I'm talking about an addiction. I'm sure we're not the only ones. There must be others who have had this trouble sleeping, this inability to focus on anything else. For whom there is no cure but more poison.

I'm talking about ALIAS. I'm talking about being so into a show there is nothing else in view. We must figure out what is going on. We must keep watching. We must get another disc in the mail tomorrow.

We've only just finished Season Two. And the season finale was over the top. I was churning it over in my head all night. With the noisy neighbors (see post below) I barely got any sleep at all.


And man Vaughn is Dreamy. That's a two syllable word. Dree-mee.

yes. i am a recovered alias addict. well, maybe not completely recovered as i am avidly awaiting the final season to come out on dvd.
they really know how to keep things interesting, don't they?
i think it might be easier to take a break from watching if you stop the episode about 3 minutes before it ends. then everything is just hunky dory most of the time.
do you ever feel like going over to your neighbors and pulling a couple of sydney moves on them?

Good to know. I'm not alone. I think you're right, though and that if I only stopped it earlier, it would all be fine.

I could totally throw down on those neighbors. They'd never even know who hit them...I just need to find the right wig...

I think it's a good thing that the whole series is done so you don't have to sit and wait until the next season. you'd be a basket case of adding another shower where you'd have to wait! :)

You are not kidding. I'm bad off enough as it is!

I, too, am a recovering Alias addict. You know this, of course, as Season 4 sits at my house waiting for you to borrow it. I will save any general Alias comments for after you've gotten through more seasons. I would, however, like to let you know that when I pulled up your blog and saw the beautiful Michael Vartan, I got a lovely fluttery feeling in my stomach. *sigh* Give me a jingle if you want any company for any of the viewing of Season 3--I'd be glad to join you for a viewing of any episodes. :)

anne said...

We should recieve Season Three disc One in the mail tomorrow. Tomorrow night around 8 the viewing will begin. And likely continue until midnight or so...

Dree-mee-er than Jude Law???

anne said...

I think I'm mostly over my Jude phase.

Mostly.

I too like Vaughn... lovely to look at. I admit, I just loved that show but then something happened, it started goin downhill for me. I have not seen the last 1 or 2 seasons. I've lost track. I'm hoping to see them sometime but I'm not in a hurry.

anne said...

As I am watching them all in a row, I think they will continue going pretty well. But I'll let you know what I think about it all. It will be easier to analyze that way too. See where the downfall is. If indeed it exists... :)

Carbon said...

Oh it exists my friend, that's why the show ended... it started down the path of suckage ;-)

anne said...

C'mon, Maki, I'm trying to keep these rosy glasses on. You're no fun...

I'm like that with The Young & The Restless. I can't miss my story. Been watching it for 28 years.

anne said...

Wow. That's a really long time. I guess you really are a fan... :)
