‘Alias’ takes on the gaming world: I’m not a big gamer, but this could temp me to start.
The main character — agile, clever and impossibly beautiful superspy Sydney Bristow (played by the agile, clever and impossibly beautiful actress Jennifer Garner) — could easily hold her own with the gallery from “Mortal Kombat.”
Add in the fact that “Alias” and its epic, sometimes shocking sometimes schmaltzy storylines can be as engrossing as “Metal Gear Solid,” one can convincingly argue that “Alias” is really just a video game that happens to come on your TV every Sunday night.
Apparently my homeboy Marshall plays a prominent role. As it should be.
