In early 2011, Syfy had a choice between two different shows about people with superpowers. As we all know, they ended up choosing "Alphas," but they still aired the pilot for the other one. The pilot episode of "Three Inches" premiered last Thursday night with no advertising or announcement. There won't be any more, but this is an interesting glimpse at what could have been. Would you want to see this developed into a full series? Do you think it would have been better than "Alphas?"
Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. While this isn't a huge surprise, given the significant drop in ratings for the second season, it's still sad for those of us who did keep watching. Come on Syfy, you aren't going to at least let them have a proper conclusion? You're just letting the series end on a cliffhanger? At least we can hope they end up replacing this show with a new original series we can get sucked into. Even though it'll likely be another reality show. Or wrestling. Damn it.
Are you sad to see Alphas go? What was you're favorite moment of its short run?
It's that magical time of year again, when we can watch new episodes of some of our favorite summer shows in the winter. Last night, Syfy aired christmas episodes of three of its best shows. Do they resolve anything from last season? No. Are they cannon? Who cares? They are awesome.
