Three Years of life wasted . . .

Tonight was the Series Finale of Alias – a show I got hooked on through DVDs shortly after it’s first season released to the medium.

Season 1 and 2 – great TV! Cliff hangers every episode, villains you love to hate, and characters so complex you think you will never understand them. Then the network stepped in put a kibosh on the vehicle (Rambaldi) and wrecked any possible arc for character development.

The Series Finale was predictable, and poorly done. The special effect in the last half season where horrible and the stories were underdeveloped and thus underwhelming.

I had hopes, and dreams for the end. I wanted them to redeem the last 3 seasons and finish strong. Instead they left me feeling like I didn’t care. They didn’t make me care.

The final screen read, “Thanks for five terrific years.” As a fan I say, “Thanks for 2 terrific years and can I have the other 3 back.”

You can the D out of CTI but you can't take it out of TeDiuM

Those of you from CTI know the tragedy of the tale.

3 co-workers become great friends - work on a project of epic proportions together and find in the process how well they compliment each other. They even create a name for themselves. Well - as fate would have it one leaves the company - creating a whole both at the company and in his own existence. In the months that follow the 3 began to look for new ways to use their collective strengths - and strike upon and idea.

Needless to say TeDiuM will make it's triumphant return soon. To quote a great movie . . . "We are on a mission from God"

Check back soon for new updates soon.
