alphas season 1


I like to call this show a mix of X-Men and Heroes and other drama/action tv shows that have come and gone over the years.

I credit advertisements for getting me to watch this show because without them, I don’t think I would’ve ever heard of it. And it would have been better if I hadn’t heard about it because it’s not a great sci-fi. Why?

For starters, there are absolutely no characters I like or can even relate to. Usually, there’s someone who has a sense of moral justice and you associate yourself with them, or their powers are so cool, you wish you were them. But no, none of that. Well, okay, some powers are cool, but the person with those powers is such a turn off, none of it is cool.

Even the Xavier/Magneto characters in the show suck. I have no respect for their cause and their actions or the way they conduct themselves and talk.

Perhaps all my issues with the show can be blamed on the underdeveloped characters and stories, but that should be no excuse. I’m seriously struggling to get through the second season right now.
