The Best Superhero Show is Back on TV!

Well, it sort of is the only one right now beside CW's Arrow, which has not started yet.  Anyhow, Alphas is back on SyFy.  You have heard of Alphas, right?  That was the show that dealt with a group of people who have super powers.  They continue to deal with their own issues while attempting to stop the bad guys.  They also locate and capture other people with powers (Alphas) who might be dangerous to others.  The show has really defined the characters and watching them work as a team and at times, not get along is certainly one of the many highlights.

These are normal people using their abilities to help keep dangerous Alphas off the street but is what they are doing really the best way?  Is putting these dangerous Alphas in a jail really the best thing to do?  Well, the second season will no doubt deal with this and others.

If you liked Heroes then you may like Alphas.  If you did not like Heroes then you probably will like Alphas. I find the chemistry among the characters to be superb in Alphas and am very glad it is back on TV.  Seaosn 2 came back on July 23 and airs on Mondays at 10pm.  Catch up with season 1 (only 10 episodes) on DVD or on demand - it is worth it!

FYI -the show will be full of sci-fi alumni actors this year with Brent Spiner (Star Trek TNG), Summer Glau (Firefly), and Lindsey Wagner (The Bionic Woman).
