Plus, the show was just renewed for a second season! Now, I’m really here because I want to talk about this week’s “The Unusual Suspects.” It was was an episode that started off crazy, kept you guessing, and finished off with a surprising cliffhanger. It was so good. (more…)Tagged as Alphas + Categorized as Reviews – TV, Television
We started Alphas this season with a bunch of mythology episodes, but lately we’ve been getting more into the characters each week. The characters are the most important of this show, so I’m actually glad to see they’re getting their due.
“Bill and Gary’s Excellent Adventure” has Bill and Gary, obviously, pursuing a case together. Bill’s hoping that solving it will get him reinstated in the FBI. Which works well because Gary’s hoping to solve a case with his new partner, Bill. This episode was indeed most excellent. (more…)Tagged as Alphas + Categorized as Reviews – TV, Television
We’ve been spoiled by four mythology episodes so far on Alphas, which makes this week’s standalone episode kind of a letdown. That’s not to say it’s bad, but it’s just not as good in comparison. Still, it does get kudos for continuing the loved ‘character of the week’ trend from last week.
In “Never Let Me Go,” Rosen’s team, now a part of DCIS, investigates several deaths at a small-town high school and learns a little bit about ‘tough love’. (more…)Tagged as Alphas + Categorized as Reviews – TV, Television
Wait, did Alphas just pull out a full blown mythology episode this week? We’d already become familiar with Rosen and his team, were teased by what’s going on at Binghamton, and now finally introduced to Red Flag. Guess the naysayers are realizing there’s more to this show than we first thought.
In “Rosetta”, Rosen and the team try to find Red Flag, the group responsible for the attacks of the first three episodes. Meanwhile, Gary connects with an autistic woman named Anna who may be the key to helping them.Tagged as Alphas + Categorized as Reviews – TV, Television
Another week, another episode, and Alphas still hasn’t made me want to stop watching. Each week the show has been able to combine just the right amount of procedural, character development, and mythology to keep me entertained. With the third episode, “Anger Management”, they’re now gloriously stepping it up a notch.
This week, the team investigates something causing groups of people to go into a violent rage, making for some very intense and graphic tv for Syfy, and bringing in some much needed edge to the show. Things just got real.Tagged as Alphas + Categorized as Reviews – TV, Television
