Fonzie on Water Skis

It's always sad to see it happen. I was afraid last season that Alias jumped the shark when Sydney and Vaughn hooked up ("They Did It"), and even more certain once Sydney became a regular CIA agent instead of a double agent (the Alliance is destroyed).

The first couple of episodes this season have now confirmed my fears. Consider the shark jumped.

Update: My brilliant wife just pointed out the continuity error from the cliffhanger episode last season to the premier this season. Last season, the old CIA station director (the bald guy) took the call from Sydney when she woke up in Hong Kong. But he is nowhere to be seen this season, and Dixon is now the director. Remember -- in show time, there was no delay between the cliffhanger and this season.

Update: Just watched the end of tonight's episode. You've got to be kidding. The new character is Mrs. Vaughn??

***SPROING*** That was my suspension of disbelief completely and finally snapping.
