Posts Tagged ‘alphas’


Well, after a sabbatical of ages, it’s time to once again post about America’s true pastime, (No. Not baseball.) TV shows. There have been an onslaught of new series this season, as well as many veteran, returning series. Though many shows struggled this season, ratings wise, many of those were magnificent shows. I will attempt to do those shows justice, and recognize them in a top 10 best shows of the season list. Many networks (Cough, cough. The CW) stepped up their game, this season, and gave us surprisingly great shows, with solid storylines. Choosing only 10 shows, from a season full of amazing shows will be a difficult task, but I shall attempt to do so…

 

1)  Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (ABC)

Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was an attention grabber from the very beginning. The show has a magnificent cast, and great storylines, that weren’t completely ripped from the plethora of Marvel movies that have been published. Shield has presented itself to be a unique show that expands on storylines that weren’t necessarily shown in the movies, etc. Shield, for me, is almost like a replacement for LOST. (Don’t start rioting over that comment) Shield has the same amount of mystery (At least in the beginning) as LOST, and it keeps you wondering and guessing, until the season begins drawing to a close. I’m not one to rally behind a Marvel production, simply because it’s Marvel, but Shield has shown great promise, and it is definitely a show worth checking out.

2) The 100

The 100 (CW)

Let’s all praise The CW, as they finally have 3 shows that are mentionable (which is up from only 1, that they had last year)! The 100 began late in the season, and was captivating from the very first episode.  I am a huge fan of post apocalyptic/Science Fiction type shows, and the 100 is just that. Basically, the 100 is about the last remaining individuals of the human race, and their struggle to survive. The generation lives on a space station, the Ark, as it is known, and they face the danger of extinction as the life support systems begin to fail. Realizing that they only have months to live, the established government decides to send a group of juvenile prisoners to Earth, which has been irradiated from nuclear war, to try to set up a colony. When the teens land on Earth, they find that all is not what it seems, as they encounter indigenous people who don’t necessarily want their territory to be disturbed.  Arguably, the teens are up against Oliver Queen, who is in the forest hunting them. All in all, you simply must give this show a look-over. It’s rare that I recommend a CW show, so trust me on this one.

2.5) The Tomorrow People (Looks like I had 11 favorite shows this season. I knew it would be impossible to choose only 10…)

The Tomorrow People (CW)

Okay, Okay, I know what you’re thinking. How did two CW shows manage to make a top 10 list? Even though, The Tomorrow People may have slightly ripped off Jumper (Does anyone remember that movie?), it still turned out to be a pretty great show. The Tomorrow people is centered around a group of paranormal individuals who have special abilities, i.e, teleporting, telekinesis, etc. These individuals are engaged in a secret war with an organization known as Ultra. Basically those are the bad guys who want to eliminate the paranormal population. The show has a few unforeseeable twists and turns, and keeps you engaged throughout the season.  Though the future of this show hangs in the balance, I feel that it has a fighting chance, in terms of a renewal. All said, The Tomorrow People is an interesting show that is worth checking out.

3)  Crisis

Crisis (NBC)

Okay, all of you haters calm down. There’s always that one doomed NBC show that I cling to every season, (The Firm, Deception) and this year it’s Crisis. Crisis surrounds a group of elite students from a private school that are kidnapped, and leveraged to get their affluent parents help the kidnapper expose a government experiment (and possibly exact revenge). So far Crisis has been engaging and interesting throughout. Each episode the kidnappers seem to be one step ahead of the agents who are tirelessly pursuing them. Crisis has all of the makings of a great show, but it is simply missing the ratings. The show has mystery, government conspiracies, and much more entwined in it to create a gripping series. Plus, Zac Efron’s girlfriend plays a lead role in the show, so, there’s that… Though the show may be a one hit wonder, I definitely suggest you check it out.

4) Arrow

 

Arrow (CW)

An unheard of anomaly has occurred, and the CW has three shows that are in my top 10 favorites. Arrow is the veteran show around the CW, and it has continued to be a success. This season is a bit more slow-paced than the first, which is why it didn’t land the #3 spot. However, many new developments have occurred since we last saw Oliver Queen. (NO SPOILERS). The vigilante has become a bit more restrained, and not so much of a, well, vigilante. Of course many things from Oliver’s past come back to haunt him, and towards the end of the season a major character falls victim to an enemy of the green arrow. That’s all I’m saying in regards to story progression! Of course, Arrow continues to present the crime fighting action that we all love, and the character progression continues this season. If you haven’t watched Arrow, you simply must!

5) The Blacklist

The Blacklist (NBC)

Oh, NBC, how proud I am that you finally found a durable and lasting show. The Blacklist is one of the most successful shows of the season, as it was renewed about midway through its debut season. The show centers around a career criminal who has been on the run from authorities for years. One day, he simply turns himself in to the FBI and wants to speak with one agent, and one agent alone. Elizabeth Keen. Reddington, The international criminal, offers up a blacklist with criminal names galore, in exchange for immunity. A Task force is assembled, including Keen and Reddington, and the cases begin. However, all is not what it seems, and Reddington’s motives aren’t exactly clear. I find that this show has everything that a person could want. It has the police drama aspect, much like L&O, as well as the mystery, and underlying conspiracy. Of course, the cast is what truly makes the show. Names such as James Spader and Meagan Boone make the show what it is. If you haven’t seen The Blacklist, I highly recommend that you check it out.

6) Elementary

 

Elementary (CBS)

It’s Elementary, dear reader, Elementary. Of course if you’re a proponent of the other Holmes based show, ‘Sherlock’ and haven’t seen Elementary, you don’t know what you’re missing. Elementary takes a character that has been around for ages, and modernizes it, and redefines how we think of Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Of course, Watson is played by a female, which is an interesting spin on the tale. The two lead roles are played by Johnny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu, and the interactions between the two truly make the show what it is. So if you’re an all around sleuth, and love a good crime based drama, you should definitely check out Elementary.

7) Perception

Perception (TNT)

Perception is a show that I will rally behind, indefinitely. The show centers around a brilliant college professor and part-time FBI consultant. The genius professor, Daniel pierce, suffers from schizophrenia and suffers many hallucinations, that sometimes help him solve the cases that he consults on. The show has an ensemble of great cast members, and the storyline is indeed solid.  The show is a crime solving drama with a unique twist. The show highlights the side of mental diseases that many of us never realized. Perception is definitely worth your time, and I recommend you check out both seasons 1 and 2. Get ready for season 3, premiering this June!

8) Chicago Fire

Chicago Fire (NBC)

Another epic series from the great Dick Wolf! Chicago Fire is on its second season, and it is still going strong. The storylines never cease to engage me, and the drama is off the charts. The show presents story arcs that always run smoothly, and its unique ability to tie in with rookie show, Chicago P.D. makes it that much more interesting. I can see Chicago Fire being the new L&O and being around for a long while. Of course, I highly recommend that you check out Chicago Fire.

9) Revolution

Revolution (NBC)

Alright, Alright, settle down. We all know Revolution has lost the fast paced mysterious drama that we all loved in season 1, but season 2 has managed to keep my interest. Of course, a good bit of the intrigue from season 1 has been revealed, but there’s still plenty to be told in the final episodes of season 2. The patriot story arc has been going way too slow, and I feel that the show needs to speed up (Cough, we all remember The 2nd season of The Walking Dead…). However, I feel that Revolution has a good bit left to offer and if it somehow manages to pull in a 3rd season, I will be looking forward to it. So go ahead, check out Revolution seasons 1 and 2!

10) The Mindy Project

The Mindy Project (FOX)

We finally arrive to The Mindy Project. The underdog of television, and the phoenix that rose from the smoldering ashes. The Mindy Project is a lovable comedy that had a wary future after both of its season finales. However, even though the masterminds at FOX aired the episodes out-of-order, and received dreadful ratings, The Mindy Project has endured! Aside from all of the surface issues, The Mindy Project is a solid and quip comedy that is hard not to love. And to all of those haters out there, Go watch Hart Of Dixie, or something… #MindyMixer

 

Well, there’s more than a few shows that I had to cut from my list, but they definitely deserve recognition. Revenge is still serving it up nice and cold and The Following is still revolving around eerie serial killers. I also must mention Law and Order: SVU, as everyone seems to be abandoning our 15 year veterans, for Voight and his rookie team over at Chicago P.D. P.D. is a great show, no doubt, but we have to realize that no one beats Benson and the team… and in conclusion I think I owe a few past shows a shout-out. A ‘In Memoriam” remembrance, if you will..

 

Let’s all remember these shows that would make my top 10 list, any day, any time…

Alphas:

Alphas (2011-2012)

Yes, I’m still in sorrow over the loss of Alphas. Perhaps if Stan Lee were involved, we would have gotten more than 2 seasons. Anyway, if you get a chance, give Alphas a look. Definitely a worthy show that died well before its time. RIP –

 

Last Resort:

Last Resort (2012-2013)

Okay, so here’s another show that left this world before its time. Last resort was a pretty epic show, no matter what anyone says. Daisy Betts and Andre Braugher made the show magnificent, along with a little help from Scott Speedman. Though the show wrapped up rather well, with its series finale, I still wanted more. However, with the upcoming arrival of TNT’s new eerie naval set drama, The Last Ship, I do hope that the void left by Last Resort will be somewhat filled. Do check the single epic season of Last resort, if you get a chance. RIP –

 

The River:

The River (2012-2012)

Don’t start judging me, right away. The river was an epic one season show that was very reminiscent of LOST. (That’s right, I just went there). The river presented so many creepy mysteries, and all around strangeness. However, as usual, the ratings were the downfall of this great series. If you get a chance, check out the dozen or so episodes of The River. Great show, that should not have been taken from this world…. RIP

Okay, Enough reminiscing for one day. I do hope that this list and the previous one have given you enough shows to check out for a while. I Wish I could’ve added 20 or so shows in the top 10 list, however, that is in no way possible. Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D definitely wins the season in my book, and that is my top recommendation for this season. #HailHydra, and feel free to comment about these, and other shows! (Go easy on the criticism; I’m sensitive.)

Be on the lookout for Aaron‘s top 10 list, and see what kind of television legends he has listed..

Review:

Tonight’s Season 2 Finale Of Alphas Was Powerfully Magnificent! In Tonight’s Episode, Rosen Was Focused On Taking Down Parish. The Team Learns That Parish Placed The Photostims, In Power Boxes.

The Team Converges At The Station, And Learns That They Cannot Shut Down The Power, At The Station. Ultimately Rosen Decides Not To Kill Parish, As It Is What Dani Would’ve Wanted. The Photostims Then Activate, And Everyone In The Station Collapses. The Photostims Don’t Affect Gary, And He Is The Only Person Left Standing. Gary Begins Wandering The Station, Among The Presumably Dead Civilians. Gary Finds The Team, Along With Parish, Collapsed On The Floor. It’s Not Clear If The Team And Parish Are Alive, As Season 2 Draws To An Epic Ending. I’ve Been A Fan Of Alphas For 2 Years, And The Show Definitely Has Me Invested. Alphas Continues To Surprise, And Keep Me Intrigued, And I Will Remain A Huge Fan Of  The Show. Tonight’s Finale Left Us With A Huge Cliffhanger, And I Hope That The Show Returns For A Third Season. There Is No Official Word Yet On A Third Season, But We Will Inform You, If We Hear Any Word About A Third Season.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of  Alphas Was Magnificent! In Tonight’s Episode, Rosen Has To Deal With The Death Of Dani. Nathan Comes To The Office, And Takes Charge Of The Parish Investigation. In Tonight’s Episode, Gary Is Given An Alpha Baby, By A Mysterious Woman. The Team Later Learns That The Baby Is Part Of A Genetic Experimentation Program. The Team Finds The Lab That The Baby Was Being Experimented On, And They Shut It Down. Rosen And Cameron Conspire To Take Down Stanton, By Using Their Own Method. And Rachael And John Continue To Grow Closer. I’ve Been A Fan Of Alphas Since I Watched The Series Premiere, Over A Year Ago. The Show Really Is Able To Grasp My Interest And Maintain It. Overall, Alphas Is A Great Show, And I Would Definitely Recommend It. Watch Alphas Live: Monday’s At 8/7C. On SYFY.

Remember That Alphas Has Moved To It’s New 8/7C. Time-Slot. However, You Can Always Catch An Encore Episode, At 10/9C.

Review:

Tonight’s Episode Of Alphas Was Epic! In Tonight’s Episode, Cameron Attempts To Rescue Dani, Who Has Went Undercover, To Bust Stanton. The Team Must Also Deal With Dozens Of Dangerous Grenades That Stanton Is Planning To Use, To Kill. Cameron Is Able To Rescue Dani, But She Wants To Find The Grenades, In Order To Save Lives. Dani And Cameron Find The Grenades, But Learn That They Can Be Remotely Detonated. Dani Makes A Last Chance Attempt At Stopping The Explosion, By Standing Right Beside The Grenades, And Video Calling Stanton. Dani Was Hoping That Stanton Wouldn’t Be Able To Bring Himself To Hurt Her, Thus He Wouldn’t Detonate The Explosives. This Was A Fatal Decision, As Stanton Put His Feelings Aside, Detonated The Explosives, Which In Turn, Killed Dani. I’ve Been A Fan Of This Show Since It Premiered, Last Summer. I Was Skeptical That Season 2 Wouldn’t Be Able To Out-Do Season 1. I’ve Been Proven Wrong, As Season 2 Has Been Magnificent, And It’s Getting Even Better, As Each Episode Passes. Overall, I Would Definitely Recommend Alphas. Watch Alphas Live: Monday’s At 8/7C. On SYFY.

Remember That Alphas Has Now Moved To It’s New 8/7C. Time Slot. However, If You Miss The Episode, You Can Always Watch That Night’s Encore Episode, At 10/9C.
