Critic Consensus: Alphas reaches its prime in its second and final season, bolstered by higher stakes and the reassuring presence of David Strathairn.

Alphas certainly didn't reinvent the genre, but it provided a nice balance of witty dialogue, impressive effects, and three-dimensional characters.
Compared to last season, it looks like Alphas isn't dragging its feet this summer, but, instead, continuing the fun, frantic pace of the season finale.
From early in this story it looked like all the pieces would be back in their respective boxes by the end, and that was exactly what happened. They also didn't develop much in the way of new story threads to run.
But what's really interesting about the show is that you also see the crippling side effects of these powers, which gives them an added sense of humanity.
This premiere had no shortage of high intensity Alpha abilities, action, and conflict. It continued the overall conspiracy from season one, but the stakes seemed much higher this time.
