When it came to whether to watch the pilot for Alphas, there was a strong conflict. On one hand, there’s my rule to avoid watching the SciFi network, however they’re misspelling their name now. On the other hand, in this household, we watch David Strathairn. I’ve been a fan of his since The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd, and Mrs. Nat’s TV, while not having quite as long a history, is more intense about it.

The good news is, there’s no such conflict with further episodes. This is a cheap X-Men clone, dignified with a great actor in the Professor X role, and he fills it well, but there’s nothing else going on here.
