Alphas is a new series on Syfy that has a premiere date of Monday, July 11th at 10/9c. It will be a 90 minute premiere, so adjust your DVR players accordingly.

The quick judgement is that this show is a “rip-off” of Heroes. But in saying that, you’re not thinking about how Heroes was a rip-off of X Men, and so on and so forth. While No Ordinary Family took the “these superheroes are related” route, this time we’re getting a group that is actively working together like a team. It reminds me of Leverage in that way. If Alphas will succeed in holding our attention on its own merits, that is yet to be determined.
