      Tips (48 hours after the special product is invalid)

  • Michael Sacal

    It looks like a worthy successor to Misfits of Science, but without the comedy (or the cool rocker that shoots bolts of electricity).

    • Darkness

      Funny, this is exactly what I was thinking!

    • topoopon

      First thing I ever saw Courtney Cox in! And yes… me too!!!

      • Tania

        Aw! Misfits, c’mon! I’m loving what I see of Alphas plus I caught a glimpse of the excellent Callum Keith Rennie. Love Yoba and Strathairn.

      • Tom

        Betas: We made your car with the sticky gas pedal.

    • harry

      you are so awesome for mentioning that Michael Sacal!

  • George

    Finally Sci original which is screaming potential. I’m still mad caprica canellation. I’m dismayed by BSG:Blood and Chrome won’t have any Ron Moore involvement. Hopefully Syfy will consider picking up 17 precinct.

  • sam

    ryan cartwright? yes, please!

    • Theresa

      I know. Mr. Nigel-Murray is back.

    • Bukola

      so that’s where he went! so sad he was killed on bones. looking forward to all his quirks in this new show.

  • Felix

    Intriguing….I like that the superpowers are sort of low-key and (vaguely) plausible. I’ll wait and see if it’s cool or if it’s the next Heroes.

  • JOsh

    So it’s X-Men?

    • Captain

      Yeah, basically. It seems every superhuman-human show nowadays is a blatant X-Men rip-off.

    • Darkness

      More like Mutant X. Which is also an X-Men ripoff. But even X-Men isn’t an original idea really. Sci-Fi anthologies from the ’50’s had similar characters and stories.

    • Robin

      Think of it like X-men on Xanax.

      • anitamargarita

        Xanex… meaning they are less anxious?

  • Justin

    Love it. I’m in!

    • Justin

      I’m also a fan of Malik Yoba. Good actor.

      • Doobie

        I’m a fan of anyone who’s name almost spells yoda.

  • moe

    Ok, Josh, I will agree, it’s got a level of x men too it ( the majority of the charachters are similar to other x men characters if your read the comics, like I do) however, comn man, did you see the Fall Line up for this year, even though it’s on sci-fi, it has a lot of potential.

  • sherimoonzombie

    Looove David Straithairn. Add in the adorable Ryan Cartwright and I’m thinking I may be watching Syfy for the first time ever.

  • Sean Lanes

    How much you wanna bet it won’t last 3 seasons?

    Expect LOTS OF TALKING AND LITTLE ACTION because Syfy can’t afford to show sfx all the time!

    • Captain

      The way shows get cancelled nowadays you’d be lucky to get 3 seasons. This looks like it might be expensive so unless its hugely successful, expect it to be cancelled in a season.

    • Michael Sacal

      Three seasons on Syfy? Hilarious…

  • sunsetsnow81

    Looks very promising. I will tune in.

    • Doobie

      I predict that it will be over in one season. I guess I’m an alpha. Who knew?

  • Carlyle

    It looks full of potential. Hope it’s great and has engaging depth. I’ll admit though, I sighed at the black character having the power of being a super-strong hothead rage machine. I won’t touch that one.

  • MikeRosen55

    Holee flurkin schnitz! It’s Mr. Nigel-Murray.

    Looks good and plus it’s got David Strathairn, but I guarantee SyFy will find a way to muck it up. They always do.

  • Vicky

    Mr. Nigel-Murray!! Hurray!!

  • psb1962

    looks like no ordinary family to me…i’ll give it a chance..
