If there was ever a network designed from the ground up to take full advantage of Comic Con weekend in San Diego, it would have to be the Syfy Channel. Yes, even know, when the network’s sci-fi shows have to battle for space with reality TV junk and pointless “competition” shows.

Season 2 of “Alphas” premieres later next week: “Being Human” heads into its third season next year: And “Warehouse 13″ is gearing up for its fourth season, starting next week:
