Alphas: "Bill And Gary's Excellent Adventure" Review

This episode strayed from the formula that has been established on Alphas so far by having the threat the team faced be decidedly human and not another "evil Alpha of the week." I'm glad they did this, as it helped shake things up a bit and not have another ending, like Gary even referenced here (in an amusing touch and one of several good Gary lines this week), where the villain either is sent to the compound or ends up dead.
