Also notable for the fact that the show was {{ReTool}}ed three separate times. Each time, character relationships and roles changed in fundamental ways.

ways. The show is also notable in the sheer number of A-grade Hollywood actors who partook in the series, ranging from the main cast (JenniferGarner and BradleyCooper are but two examples), to memorable recurring players (QuentinTarantino and DjimonHounsou as two more examples).

* OutOfOrder: The airdates of the season two episodes "Phase One" and "Double Agent" were swapped. "Phase One", which completely [[ReTool retools]] the show, was given "Double Agent"'s post-Super Bowl timeslot to attract new viewers (it didn't work -- it was the lowest post-Super Bowl ratings since 1975) and "Double Agent" had some new scenes shot to fit the revised continuity. Additionally, the ending of "Double Agent" where [[spoiler: Francine is murdered by her double]] was tacked on to the end of "Phase One" instead, explaining some of the inconsistencies [[spoiler: like why Francie jumps Will and starts making out with him apropos of nothing]] in the episode proper.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSeriesHasLeftReality: starts off as a relatively cut-and-dry TuxedoAndMartini-style spy drama. Gradually, over the course of five seasons, the show introduces more and more science fiction elements until eventually you've got prophecies, immortality, city-sized balls of {{Synthetic|Plague}} HatePlague (or something), [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking special bees that are incredibly venomous and totally docile]], and more.

* BadAss: A basic requirement for being a regular character on this show.
** Especially true of Jack Bristow.

* LastNameBasis: [[Justified trope Justified]] when used by characters in any setting that retains a military-like command structure (CIA, SD6, APO), but you'd think when she's ''in bed with him,'' Sydney might be able to call him Michael? She also almost never calls Dixon by his first name.

* HowsYourBritishAccent: Happens a few times. Sark uses [[FakeBrit David Anders's]] natural American accent once or twice, for example. There is also an episode where Sydney and Vaughn are undercover as Russian spies, and when a real Russian spymaster asks them how their English is, Sydney says a few words in heavily-accented English in order to avoid undertaking a mission. However, as elite {{Deep Cover Agent}}s, they ''should'' have flawless American accents, and the spy calls their bluff.
