Jennifer Garner explodes in Alias’ premiere episode as the latest hottie small-screen secret agent. Your remote finger may get itchy when she starts cuddling her fancy lad boyfriend, but—hold that dial—he’s quickly dispatched after being deemed a security threat, leaving Sydney the time and the rage-induced moxie necessary to kick ass. Oh, and kick ass she does. Although we worry that Alias may have some of the conspiracy confusion issues that The X-Files has fallen victim to, you’ll find that watching this spry little sexpot kung fu fight her way through masses of bad guys ain’t a bad way to spend an hour.
