    I'm 5 episodes into the season and I'm very impressed at how quickly and dramatically the show has changed it's direction. It actually suprised me, as the first season was painfully slow last season and character development was incredibly weak. Everything is almost a polar opposite of that this season, characters are starting to show depth, the story finally has a true direction.

    Hope

    (as of episode 5, "Gaslight") Alphas is back for season 2, and it's better than ever. With a new lead character Kat and a ton of great guest stars, Alphas is really delivering this season. The show has really taken a queue from the viewers and has made this season more personal and dark, and it's really come a long way since the pilot. Gary is still hilarious, but now Rachel, Nina and(as of episode 5, "Gaslight") Alphas is back for season 2, and it's better than ever.

It'd be a shame to cancel such a great show (even better considering it's on SyFy) just based on ratings. Alphas is truly one of the most underrated shows on television. Expand

    Alphas evolved greatly in its second season. Season one was an enjoyable diversion about interesting people, boosted mostly by some great actors (specifically Strathairn and Cartwright). Season two became a lot more. It became an intriguing look at good, evil, and the gray in between. And it featured phenomenal character development and examination.

Season two was a suprisingly sophisticated exercise in storytelling. So very sad that we won't get a season 3. Expand

    All in all, the Alphas season premiere is competent and enjoyable when it comes to action and pacing, but this show (especially given its modest budget) will rise and fall on the continuation of the character development begun in Season 1, and the jury's still out on that front.
