Alias

Am starting to work my way through the first series. Its really difficult to break away from it, and could imagine being really frustrated watching it weekly as there are cliff hangers at the end of each episode!
Its interesting to see JJ Abrams work before Lost.
Each episode ticks over at a cracking pace. Helped by the atmospheric beat driven background music. This is replicated in Lost. I presume in both shows it was programmed by Abrams himself.
Of course enjoying Alias is nothing to do with Jennifer Garner being quite hot in a multi-lingual, kung-fu kick-ass way.

I'm a big fan of Alias and those amazing cliffhangers.

It eventually gets to the point where you have to watch it from mid-episode to mid-episode otherwise you're always swinging from huge cliffhangers to facile resolution in easy steps, leaving the prog very hard to put down.

I hadn't realised JJ was responsible for Lost as well but you can kind of see it -- cliffhangers being more important than story arks. More than a passing similarity with 24, too.
