Alphas, Season 2 (Syfy, 2012) Alphas suffered from an unfortunate case of second year syndrome. Its winning premise became lost in a season-spanning story arc, which promoted dramatic grandiloquence over compelling self-contained episodes. Though still very watchable, the programme subsequently (consequently?) was canned, its potential sadly unfulfilled.
42 Word Review: Alphas, Season 1
Alphas, Season 1 (Syfy, 2011) An endearing, often humorous SF action/drama about a ragtag taskforce of Alphas — people with super- (or more accurately, trans-) human powers — who search for self-identity while battling their more maladjusted counterparts. Ryan Cartwright gives a standout performance as autistic technopath Gary Bell.
