Missing the glory days of the first season of Tim Kring's Heroes? Looking for another superhuman series that will not face the same writing problems that No Ordinary Family and the succeeding seasons of Heroes had? If your answers to these questions are yes and yes, then Syfy may just have your new summer addiction.
Alphas is about a group of people brought together to fight crimes because of their extraordinary abilities. I've never passed on a show about humans with special powers so I'm definitely checking this one out. Plus, I'm already liking the characters' powers. At least they're not the usual flying, super strength, mind reading or invisibility abilities. I'm just hoping that the show will follow an intriguing underlying mythology while still keeping the plot mostly uncomplicated. Also, this show will be riding on its characters, so they better have good chemistry! (and character development's required too!)
So will you tune in when Alphas premieres this July 11/12? If this doesn't become a generic superhero show, then it'll definitely be a part of my regular TV habit.
Alphas is also penned by Zak Penn from X-Men: The Last Stand.
