"Alphas" is a new science-fiction TV series that began airing on the Syfy channel earlier this month. The story revolves around five superhumans who use their abilities for good. However, there are others gifted with similar powers who abuse them for criminal means. Our five heroes are led by Dr. Lee (played by the talented David Strathairn) to deal with these adversaries.
During last week's Comic-Con "Alphas" presented this real, showcasing the show's premise:
"Alphas" will air every Monday night on the Syfy channel for the first season's dozen episode order. The show is co-written by Zak Penn (who brought us the enjoyable faux-doc with Werner Herzog, "Incident at Loch Ness) and directed by Jack Bender (a very accomplished TV director who, among many among credits, was responsible for some of my favorite episodes of "Lost"). Tonight is Episode 3: "Anger Management."
