Alphas Season one DVD set
The 1st season of the SyFy drama Alphas is out for general release in the US on July 17th, 2012, yet I have just gotten my hands on a copy of the DVD (Universal Studios Home Entertainment hasn't provided informations on a Blu-ray release yet).
You can pre-order the 3-disc DVD set on Amazon for $34.99.
Alphas Season 1 DVD will be released in the UK on September 24, 2012, available on Amazon UK and in France on August 28, 2012, available on fnac.
Brought together to form one extraordinary team of “Alphas” – people whose unique brain anomalies imbue them with superhuman mental and physical abilities – five seemingly ordinary citizens must take the law into their own hands while working within the government to investigate a new brand of baffling crime. An action-packed thriller starring an electrifying cast led by Primetime Emmy Awardr winner and Academy Award nominee David Strathairn (The Bourne Ultimatum) and guest starring sci-fi icons Lindsay Wagner (The Bionic Woman), Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation), discover a new breed of superheroes in Alphas.
Alphas is produced by Universal Cable Productions and BermanBraun and returns to Syfy with all-new episodes on July 23, 2012 at 10:00 p.m. Also Summer Glau confirmed she'll reprise her role as Skylar Adams.

I hope you enjoyed this first look! Let me know if there's something else you'd like to see.
Watching the deleted scenes ((most of them are discussions between Dr Rosen and other Alphas team members) makes me feel like I got a little bit of new Alphas. I would have expected commentaries or bloopers in the bonus features though; hopefully some will be included in the Blu-ray.
