So has anybody else been watching Alphas on syfy?  I swear it's about a bunch of Adepts and a Technomancer.

it is, though there powers only work, because they're unique. You couldn't play a guy in shadowrun, who's only power is Strength Boost. Or just hyper-senses.
Hicks is just any generic gunslinger adept. And the girl only has the Influence spell or power.

This is probably, what an average fluff awakened (Magic 1 or 2) is supposed to be and live, but sr players need more...

Well, it's gotta start somewhere.

It's not a bad show, I just hope the plot evolves past the "new evil alpha of the week" plotline. So far, and with the last episode, it's doing that; but I want to see IF they can live up to this new direction.

It's a show my wife & I both like. Nobody is "super powerful"... yet, and every power seems to come with it's own personality flaw. I love it, and I want to see it evolve!
