Alphas is one of the Syfy channel's science fiction dramas. Alphas premiered on the Syfy channel on July 11, 2011 and ran for eleven episodes. The series is produced by BermanBraun and Universal Cable Productions. Although there were rumors that the show had been canceled, the Syfy channel renewed the show for a new thirteen episode season. Alphas refers to human beings who have super powers or abilities. Alphas is about a group of five people with super powers who work for the Department of Defense in an investigative capacity. Over the course of the first season it is discovered that there is an evil group known as Red Flag that uses super powered people to break the law. Another interesting aspect of the series is that it takes place within the same world as two of Syfy's other popular shows. These shows are Eureka and Warehouse 13. There are multiple main characters that the series focuses on in each episode. The first major character is Gary Bell. Gary is an Alpha with the ability to use and control wireless signals. Gary's ability is referred to as Technopathy, and he is autistic. The next character is Rachel Pirzad. Rachel's character has the ability to enhance any one of her senses to an extreme degree, but only at the cost of her other senses. Dr. Lee Rosen is another major character, but he is not an Alpha. He is responsible for helping the government find and help Alphas, and to use his team to fight evil or destructive Alphas. The next Alpha is Cameron Hicks. Cameron's power is referred to as "hyperkinesis", and allows him to have much better reflexes and accuracy. Bill Harken is another Alpha. Bill has the ability to increase his endurance, speed, and other physical traits for short periods of time. The last major character is Nina Theroux. Nina has the ability to force people into doing whatever she tells them to do, regardless of their personal desires. In conclusion, Alphas is another superhero show that has been met with mixed reviews. This show has been criticized for doing the same things as every other superhero show. Fans, and some critics, have praised Alphas for making the characters more human than other superhero shows. This human edge has come from the characters having limits to their powers to make them seem less superhuman. Regardless of the critical response, Alphas had the fan and network support to come back for a second season.
