Roger Moore to appear in ABC's Alias next week
Posted 04 March 2002 - 07:07 PM
On the conclusion on last night's hit Spy series, Alias, there was a teaser commerical for next week which including an tagline screaming "and special guest star Roger Moore". The retired Bond will apparently play the head of a counter MI:5 agency in London.
For those of you who haven't seen the show or don't get it in their country, Alias is about a graduate college student, Sydney Bristow, who is recruited into an agency that is part of the CIA known as SD:6. Right after she announces her engagement to her fiance she finally tells him who she is working for. He is immediately killed and Sydney finds out that for years she has been working for a counter-CIA agency that is attempting to steal information from the CIA. Now Sydney is an ALIAS for the CIA working for SD:6, but giving all of the information to the CIA. If that isn't confusing enough, Sydney's father work for SD:6 as well, a person that Sydney hardly knows.
If you've never seen ALIAS give it a look see next week. It is a slick show that feels very much like Bond, and Sydney is one hot spy. Alias is on ABC every Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. EST.

The name of the episode is The Prophecy and it is Episode 16. I hope that helps.
16, we must only be up to about 6 or so, does that sound right my fellow Aussies ? Looks like we've got a bit of a wait yet.

Generally, the plots start in the middle of the show and finishes sometime the next week and are intertwined with sub-plots that start and finish at their own leisure. Nothing is concluded at the end of the episode so the show can leave you on cliffhanger each week. So I wouldn't be surprised to see Roger show up in the last ten minutes and the next week be the real Roger episode.

I definitely going to watch this episode.Will he be behind a desk? Or will he be involved in any action? It would be great to see him with a gun in his hand again. Maybe with a Walther PPK?
Sorry, Knight, but you already missed it. Pretty good episode, too. Roger was kind of a villain. He played the role very well. Not really involved in any action, but he was heavily involved in the plot. they left it open so Roger could reappear, but it didn't seem a definite.
And they had a nice homage to The Spy Who Loved Me in the teaser of the episode where Sidney is being chased throught the jungle near Rio and loses her pursuers by jumping of the cliff and then her yet unseen parachute opens. Cue the titles.
