Alcatraz - 1x

Postby DillingerFreak » Tue Jan 17, 2012 11:41 pm

Just watched first 2 episodes of this. Not too bad, Sam Neill is the standout character so far. Hard to picture Jorge Garcia as anything but Hurley though.

Seems like it could turn out like X-files (a la crim of the week vs storyline), but interesting enough to keep me watching the next few episodes.

Anyone else seen it?

Watched first ep last night, were a couple of things early on in that I thought was cheese factor. But Ill watch the 2nd one and decide whether to keep watching after that.

Second ep def raised it up a bit, sniper dude was mean as.

Pretty big JJ fan so will stick with it, can see it possibly going crim of the week as well.

I think once we start getting into who was behind it / conspiracy buzz it should get pretty interesting.

I just searched this up on IMDB and it doesn't even have a synopsis. Someone give a TLDR on what it's about and why it's good?

JJ Abrams, 1960's everyone incarcerated in Alcatraz just ups and disappears.

Cue today, prisoners just start turning up and going about manchurian candidate type behaviour.

Sam Neill investigates / knows whats going on.

First ep was ok, second ep was fucking retarded.

The detective work was pretty much "Yes Hurley, Alcatraz is by the sea. Hmmmm, sea....sea....C! C for catwoman!"

Also "all the victims were shot in the heart" three seconds after we see one get shot in the face.
