Anyone watching SyFy’s new show Alphas? And yes, I know I watch a lot of TV — I’m surprised my brain hasn’t melted out of my ears. Writing?… oh, yeah, I fit that into the commercials sometimes… 😉
Anyway, I’m not really sold. It’s been two episodes now and I still can’t remember anyone’s name! Not a good sign.
The old guy is a little too passive. The hot, angry guy lost his anger waaaaaaay too fast. The strong guy… seriously? The strong guy? Couldn’t they come up with something else? I like the guy who can see the electromagnetic spectrum, but I suspect he could easily get annoying. And who thought it was a good idea to have three women who all have long, dark hair? I can’t tell them apart right now.
For now, Alphas has a stay of execution in my TV schedule. I usually give questionable shows 2 or 3 episodes, because pilots often suck. Alphas might get 4 because it‘s so hard for me to give up on a sci-fi show. Nevertheless, combined with Eureka and Warehouse 13 (love, love, love both of those), Monday night is a great sci-fi night.
