For any of you who read my blog regularly and have really good memories, you'll recall I'm a big Alias fan and was quite distraught over the fact that they had killed off Michael Vaughan at the beginning of the season. I stated the only thing that would make me even remotely okay with this (outside of resurrecting Vaughan from the dead, which hey - I still think is possible) was to bring back my absolute favorite character, Sark.
So I'm sitting there watching Alias last night and the episode was one of the better ones so far this season. I've found it a little slower, maybe because I'm not super thrilled about these new characters, although I'm warming up to Balthazar Getty, but the blonde chick is still not in my good books yet. And I miss Sydney's ass kicking, although given the impending motherhood thing, I'll give her a pass on that and at least the pregnancy sets up some good comic relief from the normally stoic Jack.
But, to make a short story long, after the episode last night they showed scenes for the next episode and who's coming back, but Sark! Oh Yes! Oh happy day!! I actually did jump up off the couch and bounce in a circle clapping my hands and squealing like an idiot. Seriously people, I'm beginning to think I shouldn't be left unsupervised. But Sark is one of those characters that you watch/read and think 'damn if there was ever a character I wished I created, that's the one'. He's fun, he's evil, and he's cute as hell while he's doing it. And every now and then you get to see his cool facade crack and fall apart.
They're also moving Alias back to Wednesday night's, which I'm more than happy about as well. It'll follow Lost and I get my two hour JJ Abrams fest back. And JJ will be happy to know, that this move of bringing Sark back, provided it is for more than one episode, may just get him back on my Chrismakkah list. I know how upset he was at being knocked off earlier in the year.
