Alias Gets Good Again, Alias Gets Cancelled

So now Alias is cancelled, and rather unceremoniously, too.

The network slipped out the word that it would end its run in May, almost as if the news were micro-encoded in some kind of encrypted lipstick transmitter slipped into a holographic keypad in the laser-protected safe of a high security facility in the basement of a rave in Prague.

Or, more accurately, the network announced it in a press release flung out on Wednesday night before Thanksgiving (which all West Wing fans know is "Take Out The Trash Day"). Oh, well.

First Arrested Development, now Alias. If West Wing goes, too, I can only ask if network television is trying to chase me away.
