    Summer Glau just happens to be in a lot of sci-fi. Consider how much sci-fi does it canceled, I don't blame anything on her at all.

    Hawaii Five 0 is doing awesome. My husband calls it James Bond lite. They have many guest stars. None of them can sink that awesome show.

    I just started watching this show on Netflix. I found out it was cancelled after I saw the first episode... I'm a few episodes in now, and I really like it! Why, Syfy, why? ...

    Ah, well. At least I know going into it that there are only two seasons.

    Yeah, I heard it ended on a cliffhanger. Hate that! >.< I still have to wait for the DVDs to come out so Netflix can stream it.

    Well I hope you enjoy it. It was great while it lasted. Syfy has some eps on, but their site stinks. I watch Face Off and it takes like a month before the new ep comes on.

    Finished up Alphas yesterday. It was kinda silly, but I enjoyed watching it while concurrently working on other things. Alphas is what I think of as 'lite' television: an undemanding story that I can follow while paying only partial attention to it. Alphas fits that bill.

    Alphas also requires a big, whopping suspension of disbelief to enjoy it, but hey, so do many other shows. I enjoyed Fringe, and that show required me to set aside nearly everything I know about real-world nature & science.

    True, but it's not a gut-wrenching cliffhanger IMO. The climax is what the viewer was led to believe it would be. I felt no sense of "OMG, I have to know what happens next!" The final scene did raise a brand new question about one of the main characters: an unfortunate decision from the showrunners, considering the series was canceled.

    Personally, I had been hoping that maybe this series would be a good replacement for the short-lived 4400 (4 short but good seasons) and Heroes (1 good season, 1 pretty good seasons, 1 meh season, and 1 horrible season).


    Alas, this series only got two seasons. Tis a shame, I thought it was getting fairly interesting. And that cliffhanger...One of the most frustrating cliffhangers of all time for me, because there is pretty much no way to interpret it other than the obvious...

    Sorry you didn't find out until now.


    It's a shame cause season 2 was quite good, I felt.

    I was looking for an appropriate thread to ask this question and I guess this is as close as it's going to get. I watched the first couple of episodes of Alphas back when it premiered. It didn't exactly reel me in. A few days ago, I was given the dvd's for both series. They are sitting on my desk as I write this. Tell me, if I hang with it, or start over and watch from the beginning, am I going to be happy I did, or is it a show that is memorable only to its most ardent fans?

    I like all types of sci-fi. I like character driven dramas. I don't have to absolutely love something to watch it, but I like to be entertained. I've heard, after skimming the threads here that the second series is really good. Should I pass these dvd's on or will I kick myself for not taking the time to check them out? Thanks in advance, I huess I'm looking for a little nudge...

    I found season two to be quite excellent.

    Besides, you were given them (I am assuming as a gift), so you don't really have much to lose.

    Oh! Thanks for mentioning it. I've been waiting and then started forgetting to check.

    I wish I'd come here sooner. I watched the series through last year, on Netflix, and kept it up on my fav list to watch for future eps.. I guess now I can take it off the list. Too bad, I really got to liking it.
