Edward's spy sidekick Raymond's field callsign is "Boy Scout." So was Michael Vaughn's, for a portion of Alias. I mean, honestly! I will admit that it's kind of funny that Vaughn's callsign was chosen because that's exactly what he is, while Raymond couldn't be more of an anti-Vaughn if he tried, but couldn't they have been a little more creative? Name him "Ken Doll" or something. Especially when it's mixed in with the first Sal's Pizza instance, Tony's stuttering, stammering tech man with all his crazy op-tech that is more and more Marshall Flinkman by the minute, and the fact that Christian Slater played a nerdy fall guy on Alias, I think they need to start making an effort to distance themselves from the other series. Homage is nice, but there's pastiche and then there's what the hell, show! Think of your own stuff! Anyone else irked by the similarities?
