Since we’ve finished watching Leverage, I’m looking for a new TV show. A friend recommended Alphas, which I’d heard nothing about. Looked up a very quick summary–it appears to be people with low-level superpowers who are working to stop other people with low-level superpowers from being bad guys.
Having seen the first episode, I have to say I like it. Five of the six Alphas are very well-drawn; a little simple so far (which is fine for the first episode), but distinctive. The sixth is a deliberate cipher, so that’s fine. The moral ambiguity with Red Flag and Rosen’s superiors is the kind of thing I’d expect to come up with this setup, and I’m glad it’s being established so early.
Small spoiler and additional note after the cut:
