Kathi's TV Show Recommendations

Alias

Alias

Sydney Bristow was just a hard-working college student by day when she was recruited to become an ass-kicking superspy. Little did she know, her father and mother had a few secrets of their own. Alias chronicles Sydney's life from becoming a double agent, to working for the CIA.

"I started watching Alias at the end of the first season, and I haven't stopped. Alias is the kind of show that is filled with suspenseful storylines and surprises that can either make you cheer or make you yell naughty words at your TV! One of the most sit at the edge of your seat while watching tv shows ever. "

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Aqua Teen Hunger Force (a.k.a. ATHF) is an animated comedy shown on Cartoon Network as part of (and the most popular show on) Adult Swim. The series features three fast food items, the Aqua Teens, whose purpose is to solve crimes. As the series progressed, the crime-solving was abandoned, though many episodes still involve villains. The title of the show is a misnomer: The characters have no major affiliation with water (though many episodes involve their neighbor's pool), they aren't teenagers (their ages are never really established, but they do pay bills and live on their own), and they are rarely shown as any kind of a force. "Hunger" seems to be the only word that has a bearing on the characters' lives. There is also little emphasis on continuity between episodes: virtually all of the recurring cast members have died at least once. The focus is instead on character interaction and a pervasive form of brutal, ironic humor.
