Hmm, torn.  
 I'm sure I'm really late to the party with this one, but did you all hear that ABC is apparently considering an Alias reboot?

I'm trying to decide how I feel about that.  

I've had some flirtations with fandoms since, but there is no denying that Alias was my one and only.  One could even say, S5 was a sort of reboot, so I'm curious what they'd do...would it be more like the new CW show Nikita, starting off years after the story we know, featuring new characters?  Or a true reboot, with a new Sydney Bristow, et al?  

It's odd to think of a show less than a decade old getting a "reboot", but I suppose it's a testament to the characters, and really, everyone involved that the suggestion was even made.

Oh man. Sydney Bristow is the character that got me back into the fandom mindset, and pushed me through writing a novel-sized ENT story (I don't do long fiction, and that's the one and only time I've done it). I lost track of Alias somewhere in third season, I think, but I'm a total Bradley Cooper fangirl now (Wil totally deserved to be with Sydney, waaa!).

Dunno, this is the second time this week I've heard "reboot" in reference to something less than 20 years old. I'm getting tired of this Hollywood mindset of reviving characters/plots/concepts and milking the fans. Can't we just have classics anymore?

Hmm. If they take out all that Rambaldi/mystical stuff, I might like an Alias reboot more than the original. Well, if the characters are just as good. Kind of doubt it will actually happen, though, with the Undercovers and Nikita reboot (I never watched Nikita; wonder if it was any good). I'm not sure if Undercovers will be good. It doesn't seem like a premise that can sustain a series since the guy and girl are already together. They've lost that tension of who's-going-to-end-up-with-who.

Interesting stuff, though. I love kickass girl spy stuff. :-)

Hmm, i dont know how i feel about this - i also watched La Femme Nikita and think the new CW version is going to be poor - these were quite iconic shows and 'rebooting' them does not feel right.

Though if they do it well, it could be goood.

Undercovers looks interesting.

Can't really decide how I feel about an Alias re-boot.
