Ok. It's a bit obvious you people don't watch SyFy.... And that's ok.

Alphas is an action-packed thriller from writers Zak Penn (The Avengers, X-Men: The Last Stand) and Michael Karnow.  In the series, five ordinary people are brought together to form one extraordinary team of Alphas -- people with the unique power to stretch the capabilities of the human mind giving them superhuman physical and mental abilities.

Operating within the Defense Criminal Investigation Service of the U.S. Department of Defense and led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn), an expert in Alpha phenomena, the team investigates cases that point to others with Alpha abilities. As they work against the clock to solve this new brand of crime, they must prevent their own personality differences and disparate backgrounds from interfering with their ultimate mission to catch the enemy.

I would watch it what I am really excited for is the return of Eureka and Warehouse 13 I love those shows. Alphas looks interesting and I will give it a try. It sucks that all my shows are either canceled or gone. Like Smallville, No Ordinary Family, Heroes, Kyle XY, Wolverine and the X-men, and other shows it really leave me with only SyFy channel to watch because they have the shows I like all the other network shows are really stupid and bad except for Supernatural of course.

I agree. As usual the trailers made it look so good. Then the actual show let us down.

I watched this last night. I LIKED it. It was well done on all levels and am looking forward to more episodes already. ScyFy channel finally managed to get a decent show for a change. Here I am thinking about dropping cable because 99% of it is crap and then this comes along. Ha. No, I would recommend ALPHAS to any Comic Vine regular or anyone else.

Due to the fact it is decent quality, it will soon be cancelled because that is how television programming works. *sarcasm*

@Kal'smahboi: I happened to be home when the encore presentation aired. I saw 95% of it, missed the very beginning, but it was really good. I imagine they will show a repeat of it again. I do recommend it.
