Syfy wrapped up its night-of-a-million-three premieres with the series launch of 'Alphas' (Mon., 10PM ET on Syfy). The idea is to tap into that same sense of joy and wonder that fans got when they watched the first season of 'Heroes.' Remember when that show was great?
Well, it's not quite as everyman has a superpower as 'Heroes,' but there's a lot to like about the team we meet. For one, they're already organized as a team under an eccentric doctor, like so many comic book teams that have existed over the years.
To help ease us into this reality and these people, we're introduced to who will become the fifth member of the team. And in classic comic book fashion, they had to fight before they could all decide to get along. But that scene showcased everyone's abilities beautifully.
