Syfy's Big Night: 'Eureka,' 'Warehouse 13' and 'Alphas' Premiere Tonight (Watch Previews)
Consider it "Monday Night Football" for geeks.
Syfy is unveiling the new Monday night lineup tonight they're calling "Powerful Mondays" with the season premieres of three original dramatic series, including new seasons of "Eureka" and "Warehouse 13," as well as the series premiere of the brand new "Alphas." If superhuman superabilities are your superfavorite, this is your supernight.
In its fourth season, the popular series Eureka follows U.S. Marshall Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) and the residents of Eureka, Oregon (home of Global Dynamics, an advanced top-secret research facility) as they explore the far outer limits of science, technology and geek-chic sexiness - getting themselves into a non-stop series of surreal messes in the process (including space ships and time travel).
Part "The X-Files" part "National Treasure," "Warehouse 13" follows two supernaturally gifted Secret Service agents, Pete Lattimore (Eddie McClintock) and Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) as they run down new top-secret artifacts for the government's Area 51-like "Warehouse 13." The series is in its third season.
"Alphas" stars Academy Award-nominated "Goodnight, and Good Luck" star David Strathairn as he trains a five-person team of supernaturally gifted crime fighters as they learn to expand their powers and fight criminals with powers similar to their own. "X-Men: The Last Stand" writer Zak Penn is at the helm of this latest Syfy offering, and if anyone can capture the challenges of superbeings, it's Penn.
