Fantastically Fun Fridays: July 20, 2012

Last summer, we reviewed the series premiere of the SyFy show Alphas; this summer, the show is back for a second season, with the season premiere coming on Monday, July 23 at 10 pm EST.  This season introduces several new regulars, including Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Rudy), C. Thomas Howell (Southland), Lauren Holly (NCIS), Steve Byers (Immortals, Total Recall), Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactica) and Noah Reid (Rookie Blue). Summer Glau, who has appeared in both Dollhouse and Firefly, will guest star in several episodes.

Here's a description of what we can expect from this season of Alphas:

The new season picks up eight months after last year’s stunning season finale with the stage set for an explosive turn of events at the Binghamton facility (the Guantanamo of the Alpha world) that could have devastating, far-reaching consequences.  Dr. Lee Rosen, having exposed the existence of Alphas to the unsuspecting public, finds himself discredited and imprisoned by a government desperate to cover up his stunning revelation. Some of the team have disbanded and without Dr. Rosen’s care and guidance, have regressed to their old, destructive ways. They must now battle their individual demons, reunite and try to save their own.
And here's a promo clip for the series as well:

With the new cast members being added to the show, it looks like it could be a very interesting season!

Here are some other fun things we found for you this week:

Happy weekend, everyone!  And stay cool.
