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.

Eight months in prison for Dr. Lee Rosen, he daring to blow the whistle on America's top secret - the existence of Alphas, people with super powers. Now the authorities need him to help combat the most dangerous of them: Civil War survivor Stanton Parish and his followers an increasing menace. Rosen's old team of Alphas is reassembled and a few added. Ahead? 13 episodes crammed with challenges, there no guarantee all will survive....

The show has a cult following. Glowing reviews tempted me to give it another try. Sadly again I felt an onlooker, not involved. Admittedly Season 2 is stronger than the first, special effects once more impressive. As before, the great assets are David Strathairn as Rosen and Ryan Cartwright as autistic Gary. The latter is great. A wonderfully quirky performance - Gary able to tune in to all electrical communications - no apparatus required, just his hands. Inclined to take everything literally, he best not be taken to funerals - he at the graveside loudly challenging the vicar's platitudes. Hilarious. Throughout he delights, a main reason to watch.

Modest bonuses - deleted scenes and a gag reel. Plummeting audiences led to cancellation. Although no fan myself (not from lack of trying), there can be no doubt addicts will welcome this box set souvenir.

The only reason this did not get five stars is because I know the excellent cliff-hanger ending will never be folllowed by a third season. I know it borrows (or is parallel with) Heroes and X-Men in many aspects, but the stories, characters and effects make it its own and I loved it. I think the story-arc has been done before, but that does not stop me watching countless western, or detective, or other genres of movie and tv series where the same has occurred.
