    Alcatraz




    Anyone watching this new show? (Probably not because it's right in the middle of the oh so spectacular Raw, but I figured any who watches it could discuss) It's produced by JJ Abrams (Lost, Fringe, Cloverfield, Super 8) and stars Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and Jorge Garcia (Lost).

    Really good first couple weeks of episodes imo. What do you guys think for those who've seen it?

    Re: Alcatraz

    I have been watching it actually, haven't seen tonight's episode (because it is indeed in on during the "oh so spectacular Raw", lol) so don't spoil it for me, but I really enjoyed the first two. I was a HUGE Lost fan, still believe it is the greatest TV show of all time as a matter of fact, so I had high hopes for this one and it hasn't disappointed me so far.

    The inmates and guards at alcatraz on March 21, 1963 vanished and are showing up in the present (2012).. and they didnt age.. basically time travelling.. it's a really good show actually.

    Thanks Joe

    Well, that's why ya gotta watch the whole episode, lol. Definitely not something you can just pick up anywhere and know what's going on.

    Yeah, I love the show so far. I was really hoping that we'd get an answer as why Lucy was some sort of doctor/psychiatrist for Cobb back in 1963 and was the same one to get shot. Hopefully we'll have an idea behind all of this time travel and how it works in the next few weeks. Anyone know how long this season is?

    Wikipedia has twelve episodes listed, with the last two having the same date, so I'd say that many with the last one being a 2-hour finale.

    Interesting. Usually shows like this have like a 24 episode run. I guess this will make every episode more meaningful. :o

    Watched the first episode and plan on watching the other two tonight. I really like it so far. The one thing I thought was a little dumb was the girl detective and Diego should have been waaaaaay more dumbfounded by the apparent time travel aspect. I know they will obviously address it but it seems like they should have been a little more WTF about the whole situation.

    Cool premise though and originally I thought the convicts would be the good guys somehow but they make
    it very clear that these guys are bad dudes.

    Re: Alcatraz

    What part? Where she shows up as his psychiatrist or when he shoots her?

    Both are in the second episode though. He shoots here in the present day around 3/4 of the way though and she shows up as his psychiatrist back in 1963 at the very end of the episode.

    Yeah, she got shot when she was standing near the window about 3/4 of the way through the episode. Then the very last scene is the same chick in 1963 talking to Cobb (the guy who shot her in the present day) as what appeared to be a doctor or psychiatrist of some sort.

    Re: Alcatraz

    I watched the 2 hour premiere and liked it so far. I agree with Dan though -- I think everyone just accepted this craziness a little too easily. Looking forward to getting to know more of the creepy Sam Neill character (not sure of his name) and how much exactly he knows.

    I'm still waiting for Jorge Garcia to say "dude"...and I find it a little funny he is always called "Doc". Just can't get used to that...

    Another good episode tonight. Interesting twist having Madsen help the dude escape the bank robbery. I'm really getting anxious to find out how these guys aren't aging when going back 50+ years.

    Re: Alcatraz

    I'm still on the fence about this show. It's a bit too much like Lost: presenting too many questions without answering small pieces of them quick enough. Also, it's a bit too systematic. The show starts and presents a new "escapee," they delve a bit into his story in the past, search for him, more back story, find him, the end.
    It's far too easy to tell where this will go, or if it will get any better, but I'll give it a couple more episodes.

    Very interesting ending to the last episode, seems like there's something living under Alcatraz... the return of the Smoke Monster, perhaps? :p

    It's on Mondays on FOX at 9/8 Central, so it's on the same time as Raw, which is a problem for some people here, I would think...
