        @narrator Unfortunately. It had is faults, but it was beginning to become the next Heroes for Syfy channel. Ah well, least we got Warehouse 13, Lost Girl and their upcoming series Defiance which will bring back the program to its roots

            This films proposed cast (hope everyone is confirmed soon) is pretty f*cking ace. Despite my reservations, I know I'm going to see this film in theaters, so I just hope the script and directing works to the benefit of all.

              Sucks that Alphas was cancelled with a cliffhanger ending.
