A Final Alias Fix

There are three shows on TV that I watch whose season finales are this week: 24, Alias, and American Idol (no comments on my choice of television, please). Alias typically airs on Wednesday nights, beginning right as American Idol's results show finishes, so there is usually no conflict. However, all three shows are running two-hour season finales. Alias wisely doesn't want to go up against the ratings juggernaut that is AI, so it moved its finale to tonight - where it will go up against the 24 finale.

In L.A., I had DVR, so this would be no problem. Here in Portland, I don't have DVR, but I have a solution, so if you're in the same bind I am, here's your answer. ABC.com streams old episodes of some of its shows free of charge, Alias included. All of the season's episodes are available, so I'm counting on the finale being posted sometime in the day after it airs. Now I can watch all my finales.

By the way, if you like Alias, this may interest you: a charity auction of props and wardrobe from Alias. The big items (as expected) are Rambaldi artifacts and Sydney's alter ego outfits, but if you're built like Sloane, Dixon, or Weiss, you can get some nice suits for cheap (assuming the bidding doesn't go nuts). I guess what remains of the show's fan base is female. For $0.99 (no bids yet), I think I can make this one look better than Weiss did (with a few alterations, of course).
