Alphas follows a clandestine group of ordinary people with superhuman mental and physical abilities. Led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen, the unlikely team takes on cases the CIA, FBI and Pentagon are unwilling or unable to solve going head-to-head with many of the criminal Alphas hiding among the normal population.

    Love this show! Best sci-fi on any network.

  • Javier

    YES, there should be less competition at 8pm. Hope its ratings rebound, it really deserves higher ratings. Amazing show.

  • Simon Jester

    I’m really enjoying this season as well. Hope more people discover this show.

  • cimmer

    Hmmm, moving the show in time might help. Where’s W13 going or are they flipping the times?

  • Simon

    WH13 is a full season this year and will be taking a mid-season hiatus so maybe that’s why.

  • cimmer

    @Simon, thanks.

  • Connman

    Love me some Lauren Holly!

  • Hillbilly

    As of last night Direct TV’s TV guide still has it coming on at 10pm. Guess i better set the DVR to record both times. Gotta have my Gary Fix. ;)
