Alphas
« on: Jul 14, 2011 at 12:53 AM »


Alphas follows a team of ordinary citizens whose brain anomalies imbue them with extraordinary mental and physical abilities. Taking the law into their own hands, the unlikely team, led by Dr. Leigh Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Oscar nominee David Strathairn) investigates cases that suggest other Alpha activity to uncover what the CIA, FBI and Pentagon have not been able, or willing, to solve. These gifted individuals must balance their quirky personalities and disparate backgrounds with their not always visible powers as they work to solve crimes, stop the ticking time bomb and catch the enemy.

Just halfway through. Pacing's off at the start but it seems to pick up.

What Dan said.

But it's good to see Vincent Nigel-Murray employed again so soon after his death.  ;D

Just finished it. It's good. The best compliment I can give it is, it's not Heroes. You probably won't see the characters taking themselves way too seriously like in that one.

I liked that they introduced the roots of a mythology and a roadmap for future episodes during the second episode. Although I liked the pilot, I was afraid that it was just going to be an "Alpha of the week" kind of series, much like what they do with Leverage's "heist of the week" formula.

Lindsay Wagner, TV's original Bionic Woman, will guest star as Dr. Vanessa Calder in the 5th episode of Alphas. Since Dr. Calder is a recurring character in another SyFy series, Warehouse 13, her appearance here establishes Alphas, Warehouse 13, and Eureka as sharing one main universe, with more crossover episodes likely in the future.
