First look at Alphas Season 1 DVD set

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Jun 25, 2012 / 2 COMMENTS


Alphas Season 1 DVD CoverAlphas 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.

Bonus features include :
  • Extented version of the pilot with 18 additional minutes
  • Deleted scenes
  • Comic-Con 2011 panel discussion
  • Fan Q&A with the Alphas co-creator, executive producers and stars.

These specials will be detailed when taking a closer look at the discs.

Here are UHQ scans of the DVD cover, front and back, and the inside of the DVD...

FYI, the background i used is an acrylic print featuring a Summer Glau fanart (hey, this is a fansite after all), that my friend Fox012 offered me.

 
Here are screen captures of the three discs menus, showing the main menu, the episode index and bonus features for each disc.

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.

Thanks!
The UHQ scans of the DVD cover/inside cover is very informative.

As a Summer Glau fan, i wish they had deleted scenes from 1.07 "Catch and Release".
