Alphas' Season 2 Finale: When the Lights Go Down in the City

Alphas S02E12: "God's Eye" Disclaimer: I based this review on an advanced screener full of unfinished audio and special effects. In the past, Alphas screeners have been pretty close to what ended up airing, but I do want to acknowledge that my viewing experience may've been a little different than yours. That's all! After blowing our lids off last year with a big Season 1 finale, //www.tv.com/news/alphas-season-2-finale-when-the-lights-go-down-in-the-city-29889/


Hey guys, with Matt Fowler away on a Vegas Vacation this week, I’m tackling the Alphas review – as the show continues a very strong run of episodes going into next week’s season finale… …and fingers crossed that it is indeed just a  season  finale, as Alphas has yet to be renewed by Syfy. It would be a real shame if Alphas didn’t come back too, because it’s a really underrated, cool series that seems oddly overlooked, even by many genre fans. "Need to Know" showed just how ruthless Rosen and Cam were about getting to Stanton Parish, and it wasn’t pretty. They used some very nasty tactics to try and get information from Cornell – and every time I thought they might second-guess themselves and stop, they didn’t. Rosen actually going through with forcing Cornell to burn himself was especially intense. Read More... //www.ign.com/articles/2012/10/16/alphas-need-to-know-review

Alphas Review: Crossing Boundaries

" Need to Know " served an excellent stepping stone, as  Alphas  heads into its season finale next week and pulls together new and old plot threads. Rosen’s newfound vengeance quickly made itself known with Scipio, and even with his descent from empathy, it’s rather admirable how much leadership he still wields with his team. That’s not to say the unit isn’t fracturing in two under his guidance, but this fracturing is something that’s been slowly widening as the season has progressed. As Rosen continues on his dark path, his use of manipulation, blackmail and force are at odds with the team, as Kat probably put it best: //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/10/alphas-review-crossing-boundaries/#ixzz29U91RiIA

Alphas Season 2 Review “Need to Know”

I’m having a hard time figuring out who I’m supposed to be rooting for on  Alphas  anymore. When I used to feel conflicted about Rosen’s  Alphas  team versus Parish’s Red Flag , it had more to do with the possibility that both sides were trying to do the right thing in different ways. Now, especially after watching "Need to Know," I’m conflicted because it seems like everyone has become a monster. Rosen and Cam are so bent on vengeance that they’ve become completely disconnected from the people they once were. Rosen pushes his own team to their physical  limits and lets himself be provoked by a criminally deranged Alpha. Rosen used to be professional enough to be able to distance himself from that kind of reaction and clever enough to earn the trust of even the most guarded Alphas.

Alphas Review: The Final Embers of Humanity

" If Memory Serves " did one thing well, it was this: cementing Rosen’s transition from an empathic character into a man who is cold and calculating. Thankfully,  Alphas  actually did multiple things well tonight. But we really need to start with Dr. Rosen. The juxtaposition as we learned more and more about Mitchell’s memory banked on Parish and that Parish does regret some of the actions he takes, particularly the human cost. That came more into focus as Rosen began to leave his humanity at the door. Read More... //www.tvfanatic.com/2012/10/alphas-review-the-final-embers-of-humanity/#ixzz28vUlmuQ0
