Alphas: "Gaslight" Review

I had never heard of the term "gaslighting" before, so when Bill said "Don't try to  gaslight me, Hicks!" I had to use the ol' Google machine to figure it out. It turns out "gaslighting" is an abusive brainwashing technique wherein the abuser makes the victim think there's something wring with them. As in, they're mentally deficient and imagining their problems. As an episode, "Gaslight" was a fun ride - evoking some of the haunted spacecraft elements of Event Horizon - that gave us a peek further inside Stanton Parish's agenda.

Alphas "Gaslight" Review: Gary's Anatomy

Alphas “Gaslight” Review

This week’s episode of  Alphas , "Gaslight" was a lot like walking through a fun-house at a carnival: at first, the the confusion is amusing, but after a while, you just want the insanity to stop so you can get out and get back to reality.

We got a bunch of hospital horror scenes but not much in terms of story progression or character  development. Read More... //www.tvequals.com/2012/08/21/alphas-gaslight-review/
