For the month of August, TV Breakroom is promoting Alphas! You can already see the updated site look, but the real prize is below – a giveaway! Winner will receive one Alphas Season 1 DVD set and an Alphas t-shirt. Runner-up will receive an Alphas t-shirt. This giveaway is sponsored by Syfy!
Alphas is an action-packed thriller from writers Zak Penn (The Avengers, X-Men: The Last Stand) and Michael Karnow. In the series, five ordinary people are brought together to form one extraordinary team of Alphas — people with the unique power to stretch the capabilities of the human mind giving them superhuman physical and mental abilities.
Operating within the Defense Criminal Investigation Service of the U.S. Department of Defense and led by preeminent neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (Emmy Award-winner and Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn), an expert in Alpha phenomena, the team investigates cases that point to others with Alpha abilities. As they work against the clock to solve this new brand of crime, they must prevent their own personality differences and disparate backgrounds from interfering with their ultimate mission to catch the enemy.
In addition to Strathairn (Temple Grandin, Good Night, and Good Luck), the ensemble cast stars Malik Yoba (New York Undercover, Why Did I Get Married?), Warren Christie (October Road), Laura Mennell (Watchmen), Ryan Cartwright (Mad Men, Bones) and Azita Ghanizada (Castle).
The second season of Syfy’s hit series Alphas airs on Mondays at 10PM ET/PT with a deep roster of guest stars. New this season are Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Rudy), C. Thomas Howell (Southland), Lauren Holly (NCIS), Steve Byers (Immortals, Total Recall), Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactica) and Noah Reid (Rookie Blue). Summer Glau (Dollhouse, Firefly) who was a fan favorite last season playing an Alpha, Skylar Adams, will return for three episodes.
The new season picked up eight months after last year’s stunning season finale with the stage set for an explosive turn of events at the Binghamton facility (the Guantanamo of the Alpha world) that could have devastating, far-reaching consequences. Dr. Lee Rosen, having exposed the existence of Alphas to the unsuspecting public, finds himself discredited and imprisoned by a government desperate to cover up his stunning revelation. Some of the team have disbanded and without Dr. Rosen’s care and guidance, have regressed to their old, destructive ways. They must now battle their individual demons, reunite and try to save their own.

This is an awesome giveaway! Season 2 has been great so far, and as far as my super power, it would probably have to be teleport, just imagine the place in my head and be there.
It’s hard to think of an Alpha skill that wouldn’t have a down side. How about the Alpha version of Emotional Intelligence?
If I could choose a super power, I’ll choose space-time control because it isn’t only the control of timetravel and teleportation, it’s also control over matter and energy.
Gosh…maybe teleporting? (Just came in from a SLOW commute, lol!)
We are of course DVR-ing the episodes so I have only seen the first one. What a great start! I love these characters. Terrific Giveaway–yay SyFy!
Count me in! I wanna win!
I’d love to have super-strength!
Hope I am a lucky one to win.
Flight. Thanks for the opportunity!
I’d like to be able to hold my breath for a really long time and have great stamina so I could explore underwater places. Less realistically, I’d love to be able to jump into a video game or movie and live in that world for a while.
My superpower would be to be able to create stuff out of nothing!
Asking someone what superpower they’d love to have is like asking someone with a sweet tooth which kind of cake they want – it’s so hard to decide! The first thing that comes to mind, though, would be shape-shifting. I would love to be able to turn myself into a dolphin or a hawk…or a cute little kitten. >>
The power to acquire any other power would be awesome, assuming there are other powers.
Super intelligence! Even something like Mike Ross’ (from Suits) ability to retain any information – the ability to think yourself out of a situation (and potentially outwit someone) would be a great skill to have as a hero (or villain…)
Invisibility! I could stop crime, have great fun with practical jokes and avoid annoying people at work!
Either teleportation or mind reading!
I would love to have the ability to teleport because I love to travel. It would be amazing to be able to look at a picture and be able to be teleported there. Of course, I’d have to keep a picture of home on me at all times to get back home.
probably reading peoples minds
What superpower would you love to have?- I would love to be able to fly or supper speed because then I wouldn’t have to waste gas money just to go to the store for something quick. And I also could make it to school with no traffic and wouldn’t have to get there super early to find a parking spot.
I love this show! I’d love to have a super power similar to what Rosen’s daughter has. Perhaps the power of making people feel loved.
I’d love to be able to fly. There are so many beautiful sights in this world.
I want to have what Marcus Ayers had
I have yet to watch Alphas, but I just borrowed it from a friend. Can’t wait!
I love the Alphas so much! My fav show is Supernatural then comes Alphas!
Probably be able to fly. would save me a crapload on gas!
I want my Alpha ability to be increased instincts (season 1, arm-hair tingles). I think it would come in handy in any line of work / day-to-day living.
If I could have a super power, I would want to be able to control time. You could pretty much do anything.
I think it’d be cool to have Invisible Woman’s powers. Invisibility, to herself and close by, while also creating invisible force fields. Neat!
Alphas is one of my favorite shows. This is a great giveaway! I think I’d like to be able to move things with my mind or control the elements.
Mimic other powers
I would love to have the power to control the weather! Sure I’d need to keep myself under control or risk causing an earthquake or tornado, but it would be so cool! 🙂
