The world is ending… First, how about we all just take a breath and try to grasp the last few minutes of the season finale of Syfy’s Alphas. Did anyone else gasp with horror, freeze in place, and remain that way through the end credits and the first three minutes of the next show to follow? Well, I did. But I am also suffering from Alcatraz Syndrome, (for anyone who watched the season finale of Fox’s Alcatraz, you will understand what I mean). Am I right in saying we need a season three of Alphas – even just to find …Read the Rest

Alphas: Need To Know is the Breaking Point!

Everyone has a breaking point… Throughout much of season one, we explored the newness of Alphas.  We studied their connections to each other, their abilities, their coming together and becoming of what they are: a group of people who have made the choice to find more like them and protect them, help them, and occasionally tame them.  They clashed, sometimes painfully so, and latched on to each other as they …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Falling” Kat’s Past – To Lose My Life or Drugs Are Not The Way To Be Alpha or Human!

Hey Alphas! The “Falling” music score selected by Trevor Morris is hauntingly correct for the episode eloquently directed by series supervising producer Nick Copus. Featuring music from the popular band White Lies, “To Lose My Life” (2008) is heard in a nightclub rave. The song is perfect staging for Kat’s (Erin Way) undercover “Falling” mission! In fact it is one of this reviewers, and many thousands of Alphas fans, favorite …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Alphaville” or Hiding From What You Are May Not Be the Answer!

Welcome back Alphas! Doctor Rosen (David Strathairn) certainly has his hands full with the likes of murderous yet motivated Alphas antagonist Stanton Parish (John Pyper-Ferguson) and his apparent minion Dani Rosen (Kathleen Munroe), Doctor Rosens’ misguided daughter! As the video special featuring Matt Hastings (below courtesy of Syfy) indicates there is always a “downside” when it comes to life and special abilities, Alphas notwithstanding! We should all consider if Rosen’s …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Alpha Dogs” – or “The First Rule of Fight Club…”

Hi Alphas! Remember the first rule of Fight Club… The name of the game is conflict in this week’s Alphas from Syfy. Over the course of an hour, we bear witness to possible mind control, two attempts to grow up, a whole lot of fighting, and the potential results of careful study. Who said being an Alpha was easy? Alphas Dogs: Following up on a dead Alpha, Doctor Lee Rosen …Read the Rest

Alphas: “The Quick and the Dead” or “Why When the Doctors Is Away I Self Pleasure Everyday!”

Welcome back Alphas fans, All in all, our grade for Alphas is a solid “A Plus” and what follows in our analysis here on why we believe that is so! Subsequent to eight months of imprisonment, and after Doctor Lee Rosen (David Strathairn) unexpectedly announced to the world the existence of Alphas, the government classified him as a “psychologically unstable” as an excuse to keep him captive subsequent to his …Read the Rest

Alphas! “Wake Up Call” or “Opacity”

Welcome back Alphas fans! The family is broken. After the breathtaking season finale that took place far too long ago, Syfy’s Alphas have returned almost in real time – eight months later – and the fallout from Doctor Lee Rosen’s, (David Strathairn), very public revelation continues to bleed through their actions, minds, and lives. We have returned to a family splintered, broken, and frightened. The visceral agony they all feel …Read the Rest

Alphas – “The Unusual Suspects” – The Ninth Circle of Hell and Occam’s Razor

Welcome back Alphas fans! Who is the traitor? This very question is at the heart of what is likely the darkest hour so far for Doctor Lee Rosen, (David Strathairn), and his Alphas. This week on Syfy’s Alphas, both the writing and the story take a twisted turn that pits the Alphas against one another, forcing well-hidden secrets to light, and having potentially dangerous repercussions on the relationships that have …Read the Rest

Alphas: “Blind Spot” – Fringe Elements

Welcome back Alphas fans! So as the season begins to draw to a close, Syfy’s Alphas is pulling some old tricks out of its still-new hat.  One of those said tricks is the ever-popular back-to-school theme.  Monday’s lesson began with the first sentence of the entire episode.  “Possible Red Flag prisoner in our office.” Now, truth be told, it does not matter just how high-tech your holding cell is.  It …Read the Rest
