Product Description

Discredited by the government after revealing the existence of Alphas in Season One, Dr. Lee Rosen (Academy Award nominee David Strathairn, Good Night, and Good Luck) must re-assemble his now defunct team to face the growing threat of Alpha extremist Stanton Parish (John Pyper-Ferguson, Fringe).With the help of tech-genius Skylar (guest star Summer Glau, Firefly) and memory recorder Mitchell (guest star Sean Astin, The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Rosen and his team must work together to uncover Parish’s chilling plan. But with a mole in their midst, can they overcome the dangers that surround them and stop Parish before it’s too late?

Amazon.com

While fans and first-time viewers of Alphas will be equally disappointed to note that the science fiction series comes to an abrupt end with this sophomore-season set, they may take some comfort from the fact that the show went out with much of the high quality of writing and performances that initially attracted audiences intact. The second season's story arc also gave promise for a greater degree of action and suspense following the revelation of the Alphas' existence by Dr. Rosen (David Strathairn) at the conclusion of season one, which in turn ratchets up renegade Alpha Stanton Parish's campaign to wage war with humanity. New characters with great potential are also introduced (or brought back for more screen time), most notably Summer Glau's tech savant and Sean Astin as a sort of human recording device. And again, what drew a following to Alphas remains the carefully crafted characters, from Ryan Cartwright's autistic with extraordinary information-processing capabilities to Laura Mennell's Nina, who struggles this season with her power to coerce individuals by her force of will. Performances also remain strong, with the always capable Strathairn anchoring his cast of Alphas; unfortunately, their good efforts, along with those of series creators Zak Penn and Michael Karnow and their talented production team, couldn't generate a third season for the show, leaving the fate of the Alphas--and the world at large--in the lurch. As it stands, their two complete seasons remain an engaging and entertaining effort. The three-disc season-two set is rounded out by a gallery of deleted scenes and a gag reel. --Paul Gaita

    I have seen 5 of the 13 total episodes slated for release. I'm glad that show wasn't cancelled and was renewed this season. Season 2 picks up where Season 1 left off, as Dr. Rosen and his team of ALPHAS investigate and track down Stanton Parish, the leader of "Red Flag:" a terrorist organization with a hidden agenda.

    There are plenty of new surprises such as the introduction of new ALPHAS and character histories. For example, in episode 4, "When Push Comes to Shove," Nina's past is revealed and highlights how she used her gift to control others with dire consequences.

    If you loved season 1, you gotta keep up with season 2!

    *some nonspecific spoilers*
    Normally cliffhanger endings piss me off but in this case I will make an exception. Loved it! Love the character developement on this show. Love that they brought back Summer Glau. Love that they have Sean Astin. Love that the girls get to be the ones who save the world with their minds instead of the boys with their guns. Love all the new questions that this episode brought up. I can't wait for the new season!

    The major reason I continue coming back to watch this show, week after week, is that it takes a new spin on superpowers. Take Gary for instance: he has a tremendously useful ability, but he's also autistic. Or Hicks, whose ability comes and goes with his confidence. They're normal people landed with extraordinary skills, and they deal with them as if we would. Not to say that other shows/series like X-Men or Heroes don't do this, but the way Alphas handles it makes it unique. Nearly every ability introduced has a very in-depth scientific explanation, and many of them seem entirely plausible! To me this creates a fresh spin to the superhero genre, and connects the extraordinary to our reality in a way much closer than other titles within the genre.

    Basically: I love this show and hope others do too :D

    All I can say is this had better not be the end or it will be the sorriest, saddest ending to a show I've ever seen. Got to admit though it makes for a very enticing cliffhanger.

    I watched this show when it was on SyFy and remember that, at the time, it was a bit slow. Now, 2 years later, I just binge watched both seasons and found the stories and characters to be more interesting and the show better paced than I remembered it.

    Are there flaws, absolutely, but there was a good blend of character development and interaction, decent acting with only enough melodrama to keep things interesting, a major bad guy with many minor villains, and an interesting storyline that threaded its way quietly in the background in season 1 and became increasingly more visible in season 2 culminating in a major "event" at the end of season 2.

    There has been some comparisons to X-Men although I personally think the main similarity has more to do with the governments overzealous "us" versus "them" mentality which is a common theme in many different mutant, alien, and other simialar movies, TV series, and graphic novels. There was even some of that in Hero's.

    Speaking of Hero's, in hindsight I think I did what some others might have done when Alpha's was on and that was to compare it to Hero's. Even though Hero's also had its flaws it was a landmark show and, although it might have been unfair, Alpha seemed like a poor substitute for the special effects and scope of Hero's story.

    They say timing is everything and after watching Alpha's again I think if this show had come out last year or this year it would have had a better chance at survival.

    Now for the rant... unfortunately, unlike Eureka and Warehouse 13, both of which ended after Alpha's, SyFy did not give Alpha enthusiasts any decent closure with the show.

    I really, really liked this show A LOT. The characters had REAL depth, the acting was excellent, and the storyline was great. This was a mature show with great talent from the actors, writers and directors.

    I absolutely hated the cliffhanger ending with no closure. It's obnoxious for networks to do that. Basic human decency would call for a final post-season show with closure for viewers. I hope one day that becomes the norm for those shows that get cancelled. Otherwise, they are torturing viewers. Some of us aren't able to sleep at night from lack of closure!

    Some of my favorite characters were Gary who was so lovably quirky. Dr Rozen was superb, but that's no surprise. Rachel was wonderful. And Cat added a lot. To tell the truth, they were ALL great, and they worked well together on screen.

    I just don't understand why some of the other really stupid shows out there get good ratings, when a quality show like Alphas doesn't make it.

    For those who said this is too much like X-Men, I disagree. X-Men is comic-book like with very extreme characters. X-Men has great effects, but who cares? There's not much nuance going on there in terms of the characters in X-Men. X-Men has that superhero flashy in-your-face quality to it. And Alphas has real people living everyday lives like you while struggling with the very real struggles of life with extra abilities, which for some of the Alphas are DISabilities. Very real characters with lots of psychological depth.
