Alphas: "God's Eye View"


It’s time for the big showdown between Dr. Rosen and Stanton Parish. The entire season has been building to this moment, but it lacks the predictable fireworks of the typical finale. Suffering from the gunshot he received at the end of last week, Rosen is barely holding it together while still hoping to avenge his daughter’s murder. “God’s Eye” chronicles the race against the clock by Bill, Kat,  Skylar, and others to stop mass murder around the world. A back-up generator sends them to Grand Central Station for a final showdown with Parish and his goons. It’s pretty silly that his last line of defense involves guys with machine guns. Where are the villains with super powers? Does he really want the plan to succeed? Alphas’ ratings haven’t been strong this summer, but they have remained consistent. There are some rumors that a third season is possible, so hope remains. The entire cast brings their best this week and offers a reminder about the strength of the ensemble. For more details on this excellent finale, check out my full review for Sound on Sight.

I've had a great time watching Alphas this season and writing about all the episodes. I'm trying to stay positive that SyFy will renew it for a third year. It's one of the best sci-fi shows on television and has the potential to do a lot more with another set of episodes.
