Discredited by the government after revealing the existence of Alphas in Season One, Dr. Lee Rosen (Academy Award nominee David Strathairn, Good Night and Good Luck) must re-assemble his now defunct team to face the growing threat of Alpha extremist Stanton Parish (John Pyper-Ferguson, Fringe). With the help of tech-genius Skylar (guest star Summer Glau, Firefly) and memory recorder Mitchell (guest star Sean Astin, The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Rosen and his team must work together to uncover Parish's chilling plan. But with a mole in their midst, can they overcome the dangers that surround them and stop Parish before it's too late?

Clearly this was a series that clearly should have continued for at least another season. Whether one considers this to be a retelling of 'Mutant X', or 'Painkiller Jane', (or just a concept in its own right), this series had high quality story lines, production values and acting performances.
Add to that some quality CGI special effects along with a unique take on the flawed superhero premise, and this is a box set well worth adding to your collection (but make sure you get Season 1 as well if you don't already have it).
I enjoyed this on TV first time round, even more on watching without pesky adverts.

Like other people, I am dismayed that such an excellent series never made it to season three. Great originality, story telling and characters who add both depth and humour (I loved the character of Gary the autistic sauvant who "tells it like it is"). Also more plausible than "Heroes", against which it may perhaps be compared. Great scifi on TV has a history of not being so successful commercially on first showing (the original Star Trek for example only found widespread appeal in syndication). Doll House is another recent example and sadly so is Alphas but relish these few episodes because without series like this being made, TV risks heading for unoriginal, formulaic yet commercially safe and bland content.

Amazing!
I absolutely loved this DVD. Humour, drama, thrills, romance - it has it all. And as for the 'special talents' of each Alpha, just fabulous. I don't understand why this series has been cancelled.
