Alias tv seriesSydney Bristow is a young, athletic, college graduate who was recruited her freshman year as a secret agent for SD-6, a top-secret branch of the CIA. After a few years - after Sydney confides her lifestyle to her boyfriend, the evil head of SD-6 - Arvin Sloan, has him killed. Sydney learns that SD-6 is part of a rogue international agency called the Alliance of 12, out to rule the world. She becomes a double agent, working with the real CIA to bring down SD-6 with the assistance of her handler, Michael Vaughn, and her estranged father Jack Bristow  - also a double agent. Along the way, Sydney fights various rival agents, rival terrorist groups, and traitors all the while keeping her cloak-and-dagger lifestyle a secret from her friends.

For seven years, Sydney Bristow believed she was working for a covert branch of the CIA, named SD-6. However, when she tells her fiance of her job, Arvin Sloane, head of SD-6 and an old family friend, has him murdered. With this life-shattering event, Sydney learns not only that SD-6 is a mercenary group of terrorists, but that her father, too, works for SD-6. Sydney then works with the CIA as a double agent, trying to bring down SD-6 with her father, a second double. This is only the beginning of a path of betrayal, murder, lies, and disbelief. Sydney Bristow pushes through trials of love, learns the truth about her mother, loses a friend in an utter form of incredulity, pitfalls herself into months of torture and puzzlement, and is tormented with countless revelations to come.

Trivia

Sydney says to CIA Agent Michael Vaughn, "The L.A Kings are in town next week." She also says that they are playing the New York Islanders, and she suggests that they go. This episode was aired January 20th 2002; the Kings actually played the Islanders one night before this episode aired.

Will Tippin's sister, seen briefly in the pilot episode and several other episodes, is played by Jennifer Garner's stand-in, Nancy Wetzel.

Jennifer Garner auditioned five times for the part of Sydney Bristow.

Jennifer Garner's opening narration which was used throughout Season 1 was literally phoned in. She was working on location and had to read it down the phoneline to J.J. Abrams who was recording it on the other end.

Sidney's CIA code name is Mountaineer. This is an inside joke, as Jennifer Garner is from West Virginia. West Virginia University is known as the Mountaineers.

While working at APO, the agents have these following code names: - Sydney: Phoenix - Vaughn: Shotgun - Dixon: Outrigger - Marshall: Merlin - Nadia: Evergreen - Jack: Raptor - Rachel: Oracle - Thomas: Sidewinder

The two children who say, "Bad robot!" in the Bad Robot logo are the children of series creator-executive producer J.J. Abrams.

In Joke: In the pilot episode, when Sydney is caught sneaking around at the party, she lies to the guard, by saying that she will get in trouble with her boss "Ron", if he finds out she'd been drinking. Her boss at SD-6, Arvin Sloane, is played by Ron Rifkin.

The number 47 is used repeatedly throughout the series. Examples: Marshall expresses a desire to improve a camera design so that it has 47 exposures; the keycode Will needs to get into a computer room in order to retrieve data on SD-6 is 4747; the crate at the Vatican which contains the painting with Rambaldi's cipher-key has a 5-digit catalog number ending in 47; page 47 is always significant in a Rambaldi manuscript; and of course, there are 47 parts to Rambaldi's magnum opus. In episodes of season 3, Sydney tries to retrieve memories of when she is abducted, as she is dreaming... Masked men take her in to a room with the number 47 largely printed on its doors. Interestingly, the Star Trek TV shows also feature the number 47 many times (it's usually seen in their monitors). Also server 47 is the number of the server that Sydney needed to get information from to take down sd-6.

For her birthday, star Jennifer Garner was given a pink bicycle by series creator J.J. Abrams. Being the first one on set, she would often greet the production crew by ringing the bells on the bike's handlebars.

The Rambaldi Clock cost about 5000 USD to make.

Miscellaneous: Sydney Bristow language abilities: The Czech and Hungarian languages sounded absolutely ridiculous on the show, not to mention all the pronunciation mistakes.

Amsterdam was a Dutch soldier in the year 1642 when he stepped in front of a sword to save the life of a Native American girl during a massacre of her tribe. The girl in turn rescued Amsterdam by weaving an ancient spell that conferred immortality upon him. It was also prophesied that he would not age until he finds his one true love, and only then will he become whole and ready for mortality.
