Yeah, I know they're going to end up airing eventually, ABC knows the show has too large a fan base to just not finish off the series. But the question is when
they're going to air. It would be incredibly disrespectful for ABC to just dispose of the episodes as if they were garbage, by simply airing two hour blocks each week from the months of June-August. The show is already closing at the end of the season, and ABC should let the show go out strong promoting the final episodes, rather than letting the show drag it's dead corpse to the finish line un-noticed by anyone.
In my opinion, Alias
is a pop-culture phenomena and will be remembered for future generations. Whether people watch the show or not, Jennifer Garner is now a household name because of this show and for the most part, seeing someone else dressed in a red wig should instantly remind someone of Alias.
Not to mention it's numerous Golden Globe/Emmy nominations and wins. If 20 years from now, VH1 has some new nostalgic "I Love..." program, Alias will surely be mentioned as one of the hottest shows of the first half of the century.
My point is Alias
doesn't deserve to end quietly because ABC would rather premiere a bunch of new crappy-looking midseason shows that will probably be canceled come May. They should air the remaining 13 Alias
episodes and give everyone a chance to catch the final episode of this great series.
