Alphas on Syfy HD - Page 3

post #61 of 228
I can see why the big networks passed on this show, but I think it fits perfectly on SyFY and I hope they keep it around for a long time. The savant is really growing on me and so did the guy that is super lucky. I can do without the strong character, something about his attitude rubs me the wrong way. The head of the whole thing to isn't acting the best, but overall, this is an excellent series.

And Cameron used his powers to do two things - step on the guy's shoelace and throw a baseball at a cell tower!! Wow. The writers really should tone it down a bit. LOL
While I agree, I was disappointed, I have to disagree with you on Cameron. He rescued the girlfriend from the mob through an (extremely unlikely) series of moves that got them to the second (uninhabited) level. Doing extremely unlikley things is what he is good at. He also stuck a bunch of pencils in the ceiling on the rebound from a doorknob.

I would never describe it the way you have. To me it's just another remake of Mutant-X, X-Men, Heroes, and maybe a few others. The only differences are the characters and setting. I just don't see much creativity here, I'm afraid. It isn't a total waste of time, but it is HARDLY excellent.

Perfect for the SyFy channel. Like the other shows on this rapidly-downward-spiralling channel, I found ALPHAS to be formulaic, generic, and derivative.

This week's episode was polarizing, to say the least. I liked if, though. The pheromone boy was a scary dude. Call me meanspirited but I can't say the death of the arrogant agent bothered me. The only reason he died was his refusal to accept Rosen's strong recommendation to stay away. From the beginning, the guy had screwed things up by meddling in areas he didn't understand. The new agent looks a little better if only marginally so. Anyway, I think Alphas is a decently entertaining show.

It is cheap and dirty Sci-Fi, definitely not for everyone, but I enjoy it (so far).

Again, I liked this weeks episode. It was fast paced, and had some interesting personal conflicts and twists. I hope the episodes stay good.

I really dug the twist in this week episode. Making the most sympathetic character the "villain" was a nice change of pace.

TV Notes
'Alphas' Beams up Brent Spiner
By John Sellers, TheWrap.com - August 2nd, 2011

Brent Spiner, the actor who memorably played Data on "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and in subsequent theatrical films, will guest-star on an upcoming episode of "Alphas," Syfy announced Monday.

Appearing in the September 12 episode "Blind Spot," Spiner heads up an impressive list of geek-friendly guests set to perform on the cable hit, which stars David Strathairn as a psychiatrist guiding an elite, secretive team of government operatives who have a neurological condition that gives them special abilities.

Crossover alert! On August 15, Lindsay Wagner, a.k.a. the Bionic Woman, will reprise her recent "Warehouse 13" guest role Dr. Vanessa Calder.

"Firefly" alert! Summer Glau appears in the August 22 episode "Catch and Release."

Other upcoming guests include Alaina Huffman ("Stargate Universe"), Garret Dillahunt ("Raising Hope") and Peter Wingfield ("Caprica"). Additionally, "Lost" alum Rebecca Mader also appears in the September 12 episode along with Spiner.

All of this news pleases us.

"Alphas" airs Monday nights at 10 p.m. on Syfy.

That was quite a surprise to me. This Monday's episode was really good. We now understand the "you are on the wrong side" comment from the first episode. Things are a lot more complicated now. It will be interesting to see how things develop from here.

The preview for the next episode had Lindsay Wagner in it - which is supposed to air August 8 (not the 15th as in the TV Notes article). I thought it was too much of a coincidence for her not to be playing the same character. That means Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Alphas are all in the "same universe"? For some reason, while I could buy the Eureka/Warehouse 13 crossover, I can't quite see Alphas sharing with either of them.

Agreed, the last episode was the best one shown to date. The show does look formulaic, as an X-Men riff set inside a crime procedural. But there is a nice mix of characters and the setup mythology looks to have major potential to develop into something better as the show progresses.

The show is from the same producers and writers as X-men and 4400, so they're mostly remaking their own works. Personally, I don't even see it that way. Just because someone is making another superhero show doesn't make it a remake of something else. Sure, it's another show in the same genre, but there are also dozens of different superhero comics that come out every month. I don't see why we can't have the same thing in TV shows.

They did a good job with the crossover not really affecting the Alpha universe. The crossover was quite understated. If you didn't already watch Warehouse 13 you wouldn't have known her character came from that show. We saw her with the purple gloves in her first appearance and then knowing about government secrets later. Otherwise, she's just a doctor from the CDC. In any case, the show is getting better and it was a good spotlight for Rachel.

Q&A
‘Alphas’: Misfits of science find the sweet spot
By Geoff Boucher, Los Angeles Times' 'Hero Complex' Blog

The most promising new sci-fi series on television? Our vote goes to “Alphas” on SyFy, which lives somewhere between “The Office” and “The X-Men.” The show gives us a “misfits of science” team of special-ability civilians (along with one grouchy FBI agent) who would fascinate Fox Mulder — they could use his help, too, to sort out the slow-reveal conspiracies that are taking the Monday night show toward its two-part season finale.

The series has some intriguing guest stars in the mix (Lindsay Wagner, Summer Glau and Brett Spiner among them) and our Geoff Boucher recently sat down with the show’s head writer, Ira Steven Behr (executive producer on both “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “The 4400″) to talk about the sh0w’s ambitions.

GB: One of the key things for any show in its early life is to pinpoint the tone that will be its signature. What can you tell us about “Alphas” at this point?

ISB: One of the reasons I joined this little parade was for the chance to do a show that exists in the sci-fi universe but was clearly meant to be a character-driven show and was clearly meant to have humor as a major element — character humor as opposed to slapstick or farce. I think the tone of the show is interesting. It’s very fast-paced at times. One of the things we decided to do after the pilot was speed up the look of the show with lots of hand-held camera and a lot of energy in the scenes to make it as real as possible. OK, so people don’t necessarily have this level of ability in the real world — at least not yet although some seem to on YouTube — but we can keep it real and keep it natural as well as that sense that these are kind of the odd ducks doing a job that they are not meant to do.

GB: Sometimes for a show it’s important to know what needs to be avoided. What does this show need to avoid to succeed?

ISB: Speaking only for myself, I’m not attracted to more procedural elements of the show. There are a ton of procedurals on the air; do we need another one on the Syfy network? It gives us a nice framework for the show but I don’t think we should get caught up into scenes or episodes that could be played on another series out there. One of the things that we’ve done so far [in the completed episodes that have not yet aired], we’ve managed to make every episode different than the one that came before. It’s definitely not cookie-cutter. That’s what really interests me in terms of being on this show; you’re giving the audience a wide range of storytelling. We’ve done an episode that is, in my view, a procedural show and then we’ve followed it with a very strong character-driven episode where we put the humor in the foreground. We’ve had spooky, intense episodes and then something with a different feel completely. I’ve done this kind of [show] before when I did ”The 4400″ where originally it was going to be ”We’re going to do 4,400 episodes because you meet one of those people every week” but then the thing was, no, you really don’t want to do that. We played with the franchise literally every season. I’m not sure we’re going to have that kind of freedom here but I think that Season Two — if there is a Season Two – will definitely build on Season One in lots of ways but it won’t repeat Season One.

GB: The emphasis on improvisation and dialogue overlap, giving the show a nice crackle. You’ve had the cast to do it — people like David Straithairn, Ryan Cartwright and Malik Yoba — but I’m wondering how their performances come back to you and tilt the characters that you write on the page the next time around.

ISB: I spent eight years in the “Star Trek” universe where actors could not change a word. I’m not exaggerating. They could not change a word without a call to the offices. It was a lot easier, we were on the same lot [at Paramount], we could go down and talk. They were all pretty good about it; because of the whole 24th century thing, if they just on-the-spot changed a line it can make it slangy or too current. So what I’m saying is they knew that and it wasn’t a problem. But in that setting there wasn’t an opportunity to do what we’re doing with “Alphas.” And you’re right, it does require people that can do it and actually achieve it. If you can’t do it, stick with what’s written or else it will go sideways. Again, the naturalistic quality, the reality of an on-the-spot, living, breathing moment and the reaction to it is kind of cool. And you know we’re talking about two different things, too, when we’re talking about improv and the ad lib. The extra line that someone throws in at the end of a scene or to punctuate a moment, that creates that crackle and it’s a great button — that’s one thing. Then there’s the ad-libbing within the written dialogue where people go “off book,” as we say. That’s the stuff you have to listen more closely to [at rehearsals] and hopefully work that stuff out before they hit the set because you want to make sure the intent and the information is still there even if it’s dirtied up and changed to come more comfortably out of the actor’s mouth. These guys are pretty great and we talk it over with them and we have writers on the set.

GB: I really enjoy the fact that the characters are conflicted about their abilities and uneasy about their place in the world – no one on this team would ever wear a cape and deliver a speech during a fight.

ISB: These people — with the exception of Bill Harkin, who is FBI [and portrayed by Yoba] — none of them really have a right to be doing what they’re doing. And if [Straithairn's character] Dr. Rosen or anyone else was putting together a TV team of investigators and cops and muscle to work on cases and go after these powerful, dangerous people, this would not be the team you would pick. You’d be looking through the Alphas catalog and you would pick different people. They aren’t what you expect. And that’s the sweet spot for the show.

Watched this week episode with Gary the Rainboy and FBI Guy. The show's okay, but Gary can be taken only is small doses, not one of the main subjects for an entire episode! At least tone than the whiney voice "Respect the Badge!"

I also hope that Brent Spiner is going to play a "regular" character and not some looney scientist type that he usually portrays.
post #75 of 228
I liked last night's episode they took on something different than your standard Monster of the Week formula. In general this show has a different type of rhythm to it.
post #76 of 228
They need to find a way to tame Gary. At this point they've kind of written him into a corner, he is soooo annoying it's detracting from the show. Maybe they can find an alpha that can half way fix him so he's not so grating.

I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I was expecting that this show would turn out to be nothing but one group of Alphas going after other Alphas, or another group of Alphas. This was different, Alphas using their abilities to solve crimes not involving other Alphas. I enjoyed it.
post #78 of 228
I am pissed at the "super senses chick" interrupting the hot brunette girl right when he had her shirt off and was headed for the pants. Apparently being an Alpha doesn't make you a considerate roommate!
post #79 of 228
That bit was played for comedy. She should have just quietly tip-toed out of the room, but they deliberately played it broad slapstick rather then subtile. If it had been Gary I could have believed it, but not Rachel.
post #80 of 228
Finally watched this weeks episode. It was great to see the Dr. from Stargate Universe in another show. She sure looks great.

Excellent episode, not another alpha episode, just a good story. The autistic kid cracks me up.
post #81 of 228
I thought Bill and Gary Great Adventure was a nice show. As in the interview above, they are shaking things up episode to episode - the episodes are different from one another. Most of the events in this episode were entirely driven by Bill's character. We didn't even even see the real point of the scene at the beginning of the episode (what information did they grab?), but it just led to Gary's arrest and then Bill finding about about the kidnapping and so forth.

Do not mess with Dr Rosen or he will ****ing SHOOT YOU IN THE FACE!
post #83 of 228
Alphas=X-Men
Dr. Rosen= Charles Xavier

Red Glove (Red Robe, whatever the hell they're called)= Brotherhood of Mutants
Mute Girl (Gary's Girlfriend)= Magneto

This show has X-Men/Mutant-X written all over it.

Fine with me, with how good this show is, more shows should rip off the X-men then. They can learn a thing or two from that awesome super hero story line.

I said this a while back. I was reminded that it isn't so much the framework, but the implementation that makes a good show. Despite my earlier feeling, I am growing to like the show.

Gary and Rachel had some very, VERY good moments last night. Nina and Cam had a couple of, AHEM, moments too.

TV Notes
Checking In on 'Alphas,' the Summer's Most Promising New Drama
By Maureen Ryan, AOLTV.com

In my 'Happy Endings' piece earlier, I noted that I'm using this week to check in on shows I won't be able to write about during the September premiere crush. Today's program: Syfy's 'Alphas.'

The bad news is, 'Alphas' doesn't return until Sept. 12. The good news is, you have almost two weeks to catch up on this Syfy drama, which has turned out to be surprisingly good, especially in recent weeks.

I say "surprisingly" not just because much of Syfy's recent scripted fare has been lightweight, unambitious or slipshod (or all three), but because so much could have gone wrong with this particular show, which follows a team of investigators with superhuman abilities.

Not only has 'Alphas' successfully avoided many of the pitfalls that have bedeviled other superhero-flavored projects, it's done a good job of balancing character-driven moments with taut, well-paced storytelling. Not every episode has been an unqualified success, but the Aug. 15 and Aug. 22 outings, to name my favorites, were truly excellent, if not downright badass.

It's annoying that only the pilot for 'Alphas' can be obtained for free online. What is Syfy thinking? The pilot is serviceable, as I noted in my review, but this is a show that could probably snag a lot of viewers if it were easy to sample subsequent episodes, several of which are better than the pilot.

You might check to see whether your television provider has more episodes available on demand, or, if you're intrigued enough by my recommendation, here's a representative batch of episodes to snag from iTunes or elsewhere after watching the pilot: 'Rosetta' (which first aired Aug. 1), 'Bill and Gary's Excellent Adventure' (Aug. 15) and 'Catch and Release' (Aug. 22).

The last of those episodes featured Summer Glau playing a very Summer Glau-ish role -- Skylar, a street-smart, rebellious Alpha who cans build almost any tech out of spare parts and household appliances. But the episode didn't merely rely on Glau's solid skills and her intrinsic appeal as nerd bait; there was much more going on in 'Catch and Release.' One of the best things about 'Alphas' is that it has has wisely wrapped all the characters in layers of alliances and conflicts, all of which have gained heft and complexity as the first season has progressed.

The actions of Glau's character posed a special challenge for the team, given that she used to be one of them, but her cautionary tale was just part of the show's promising mythology, which is not off-puttingly dense but which -- fingers crossed -- should supply interesting developments and moral quandaries down the road.

It all so easily could have gone another way, and if I hedged a bit in my initial review, it's because we have ample proof that premises like these are ridiculously easy to screw up (swing by your local movie theater some time if you don't believe me). But so far, 'Alphas' has generally good pacing, lively direction and the cast has proved itself up to the material (though, truth be told, cast members Ryan Cartwright and David Strathairn are operating on a whole different level at this stage).

Still, all the team members are dealing with a number of conflicts and dilemmas, emotionally and professionally. These aren't necessarily people who work well in group settings, the team's government minders have a mysterious agenda of their own, and there's a rogue Alpha group out there called Red Flag, (which, as I reported here, will figure prominently in the show's Sept. 26 finale).

It's all promising stuff, but I'll admit that I expected 'Alphas' to be far less interesting than it is. It hasn't avoided every pitfall, and it's a little worrying that the "freak of the week" episodes have sometimes been weak, given how often the show may have to go to that well. Still, 'Alphas' has gotten a lot right, and as I watched the first season unfold, I kept compiling a mental list of all the things 'Alphas' is not:

It's not 'Heroes.' Unlike that meandering NBC show, 'Alphas' has a clear sense of who each character is and where he or she is going. Sure, at times, the characters are a bit too predictable, especially Malik Yoba's Bill Harken, a former FBI agent and the show's Hulk-tastic Alpha. But it never depicts having a super-skill skill as a tragedy or as fodder for pointless adventures that never really have complicated, realistic consequences.

It's not 'X-Men' Lite. Sure, 'Alphas' echoes that iconic comic-book and film series at times, especially since 'X-Men: The Last Stand' scribe Zak Penn is one of the show's creators. But when 'Alphas' invoke the superhero canon, it's subtle and intentional, and the nods in that direction (most of which involve Dr. Lee Rosen, David Strathairn's "Professor X" character) aren't overbearing. And there are differences: The X-Men obviously save the world a lot, but the canvas of their adventures is bigger and they essentially work for themselves. What makes the Alphas' situation intriguing is that members of the team live in the mundane, ordinary world and spend their days working for the government, chasing down other Alphas and solving unusual crimes.

Rosen appears to be increasingly uncomfortable with the government's methods and goals, and Strathairn is a perfect vehicle for the good doctor's doubts and protective instincts. Without overplaying the role, he makes you understand how much the reticent team leader cares about his employees, and it's painfully apparent that he sees both sides of this knotty situation. He knows the Alphas would be more or less functional if they weren't part of the team, but they'd be less fulfilled and far more prone to getting in trouble, and they are certainly able to accomplish much more with governmental resources. But what is the government's endgame and who are the real bad guys here -- rogue Alphas who don't want to do the Man's dirty work, or a government who ships rogues off to be "studied" at a secure location?

It's not sloppy. The show, saints be praised, does not use the characters' abilities as get-out-of-jail free cards. Sure, the woman who "pushes" people to do her bidding or the character who uses her finely tuned senses to follow trails can use their abilities to get information or figure things out much faster than regular people would, but generally speaking, the characters' abilities are deployed in service of brisk pacing and cool twists, not lazy shortcuts. And (shades of 'Chuck') their abilities can't always be relied upon to get them out of tough situations.

I wasn't overly enamored of the Aug. 29 episode, despite a good guest performance from Garret Dillahunt -- the "freak of the week" story seemed a little predictable and simplistic (a little 'X-Files' season 1, if you will). Still, the episode gave the very skilled Strathairn some compelling notes to play, and it's that kind of multi-layered, emotionally infused storytelling that's going to keep me coming back.

On that note, maybe it's now time to talk about what 'Alphas' is, instead of what it isn't. It isn't perfect -- the first few episodes weren't necessarily graceful as they laid the groundwork for later developments, and not all the characters are equally interesting at this stage (though Laura Mennell and Warren Christie have been well used as two wary team members who are beginning to learn to trust each other).

But from the start, one of the things that made me keep watching was the terrific performance of Ryan Cartwright as Gary Bell, an autistic Alpha who can effortlessly hack into cell phone traffic and other data streams.

Talk about a character who was rife with disastrous possibilities. Even if Gary was written well -- which he is -- it's often tempting for an actor to ham it up in a role like this, but Cartwright never overdoes it. Ever. Not only does Cartwright deftly make Gary a fully realized human being with complex desires and understandable emotions, he's also given the role dimensions I'm not sure it even had on the page.

Maybe Cartwright's stint as Lane Pryce's assistant John Hooker on 'Mad Men' helped him hone his skills in the dry comedy arena, but, for whatever reason, Gary has emerged as one of the most slyly funny characters on TV. Of course, I'm not laughing at him -- good God, no. Gary's relentless self-awareness and ferocious dignity would make that kind of mockery unthinkable. But Cartwright manages to make Gary the show's much-needed comic-relief by smartly underplaying the material and making it clear that Gary enjoys being a wild card.

At one point, the Alphas team was issued government badges, and the way Gary kept saying, "Respect the badge!" and "I'm a secret agent" never failed to crack me up. He's having the time of his life as an Alpha, and the fact that his job with Dr. Rosen has given him a chance at independence and autonomy is actually the point of the character. Gary is not a cookie-cutter "autistic character," he is a young man trying to make his way in the world, and whatever distinctive qualities he brings to the table make him more compelling, not more predictable. He and Strathairn really are reason enough to watch the show, and as long as the writers keep supplying them with meaty material, I'll keep watching.

As I said in my review of 'Alphas,' the "team of misfits" premise is one of the oldest ones in storytelling. Yet it's all in the execution, and while I can't assess the season as a whole yet, I'm enjoying 'Alphas' and the momentum it's developing. I almost didn't want to hope for anything with 'Alphas'-- we've been burned with shows like 'Heroes,' 'No Ordinary Family' and the U.S. version of 'Being Human,' and there was every chance we might get disappointed again.

But 'Alphas' is not just getting the basics right these days, the show understands that it can't just be about the characters' emotional dilemmas or their unusual adventures -- the show has to meld both those things in twisty, resonant ways. So far, it appears to be headed in the right direction, and if you watch those episodes above, you, like me, will probably want to know what happens next. (When 'Alphas' returns Sept. 12 -- speaking of nerd bait -- Brent Spiner of 'Star Trek' and Rebecca Mader of 'Lost' will guest star in an episode that finds the team "under siege by an undetectable Alpha.")

You could wait until Sept. 26 to watch an all-day marathon of the show's first season. Or you could catch up now, and together, we could see if these superhuman men and women live up to their ample potential.

Nice article for the show. Hopefully the network will announce a second season for "Alphas" soon. Even though the ratings have been weak so far (even for Syfy), the show has lots of potential.
