Alias Mysteries Revealed!

Warning! Contains spoilers for Alias Season One!

I am utterly delighted to have introduced Gertie to the wig-centric gubbins that is Alias - he appears to be lapping it up with a fervour only previously seen in lifts, toilets and bushes. I'm glad I've finally got someone to chat it over to as the Wife has only managed to see the pilot and is therefore basking in the slightly misguided notion that it may actually be competent television.

Gertie's now up to the revelation on Page 47: that god-awful picture of someone who looks nothing like Sydney, despite the apparent convictions of the FBI agent endowed with The Wicked Witch of the West's nose. Even as the episode closes, Syd's trying to put her hair in up in a desperate 'hey-hey! Look! It's me!' You have to worry: this man has to pick out criminals for a living.

What's even more hilarious is that the production office realise this and have to address it in the next episode. But, thankfully, Gertie has already found out who this person is who's going to threaten the world with destruction.

It's Charlotte Bronté.
