Re: Alcatraz

Welcome the 4400... I mean Alcatraz.

I thought that this would be quite different. And I'm a bit sceptical, but we'll see.

JJ is less lucky with his shows recently, but I'll certainly watch the pilot. smile

Re: Alcatraz

Doesn't look too bad!

"Mid-season 2012", is that basically January/February 2012?

yikes

Re: Alcatraz

It reminds me a lot of Fringe meets The 4400, 4400 for the premise and Fringe just because that trailer looks a lot like the trailer when Fringe was premiering.

Re: Alcatraz

Hmm watched the first 2 episodes (in the wrong order accidentally smile)

Plus:
Mysterious
No family drama (it is FOX so I was expecting some)
No nauseating characters

Minus:

Reminds me too much of cop shows, I do not like cop shows.
It is on FOX

Fears:
I got a feeling that we will have very slow plot development.
I bet most of the season will be "inmate of the week".

Overall It is on my watchlist. Will drop it if it gets boring.

Re: Alcatraz

I'll probably wait to see if the show is safe, because I wouldn't want to waste my time if it gets cancelled.

Btw... lol

Re: Alcatraz

Too much procedural, not enough mistery. Still not sure about this one.

Also on the positive note, nice to see Hurley back on TV, always liked him. + The main actress' boobs.

Re: Alcatraz

Yeah it was ok.... guess I'll give it a few more episodes and see how it goes. I really hope it doesn't turn into prisoner of the week, though I think it probably will  sad

Re: Alcatraz

was ok but nothing special so far, I find the main characters to be a bit boring but lets see what happens

Re: Alcatraz

Only watched the pilot so far (was too late to start the second episode.

It didn't really blew my mind. It's ok but the ending of the pilot kind of turned me off in a big way in terms of "too much in the retard level" with a lack in credibility with the Neil character.

Spoiler

Unless the Warden of the past was a family member or something, why would he be friend with a very young guard who doesn't seem to have any ties with him and who almost wet his pants looking at empty cells. Doesn't make much sense.

Spoiler

Also, it just happens that the heroin has more links to the backstory than I could have with my mother. When you watch a lot of stuff, that kind of surprising elements doesn't surprise you anymore.

Will stick around for a bit but it's not set in stone.

Myka : You slept with her didn't you ?
Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Re: Alcatraz

This is Fringe in every way...except Fringe is good this was slow paced and kind of boring. I rather 1 more episode of Fringe than a season of this. Didn't watch the 2nd episode maybe its paced increase...I just in no rush to find out.

Re: Alcatraz

Yep, it was OK... I guess.

Just one thing. If they know the prisoners will return eventualy, why the hell nobody wait until their return at Alcatraz? Why not simply put a couple of agents there and wait?

Re: Alcatraz

If I am not mistaken, this Sarah looks a lot like Sarah in this show...

But it would mean that Survivor or what-the-hell this screencap is from is fake  yikes

Spoiler

And for those who didn't get it, that last one was sarcasm.

...where did I put that rat's ass I could give?

Daemons are benevolent or benign nature spirits, beings of the same nature as both mortals and gods, similar to ghosts, chthonic heroes, spirit guides, forces of nature or the gods themselves.

Re: Alcatraz

I've finally had some time to watch both episodes and I liked them. The main duo is likeable and Emerson is mysterious enough. And I wouldn't say that the show is heavy on procedural stuff... it's actually quite "easy" to watch. I'm curious how the main storyline develops. The first "shocker" wasn't too shocky.. I figured out that

Spoiler

Lucy is from the past

somewhere in the first half of episode 2. wink

Dear Sir, may I join your club? 5 episodes in and the only thing different is that now they chased a guard. It's just way too formulaic. How many disappeared people were there? 300? That makes quite many boring seasons... tongue

They mention in every single episodes so far that there is 63 missing ppl. Have u even seen the episodes? becuse even in the intro they mention it.
