Reminder: Eureka and Alphas Premiere Tonight on Syfy!

I haven't had much time to talk about the new summer TV shows I'm excited about, but the premieres are already here! Eureka returns tonight at 8pm with season 4.5, which will include a guest arc from geek queen Felicia Day. It'll be followed later by the series premiere of Alphas. Don't know what Alphas is all about?

Check the official synposis from

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 Academy Award nominee David 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).

It's got one of my favorite squinterns from Bones, plus looks like a pretty cool spin on the superhero thing. Yes, I know, there's so much super hero stuff out there already, but I've got to give each one a try if it looks good enough! 

Will you be watching either of these shows tonight?
