Webb Porter

























I really liked this episode more for the ending than the actual episode itself because of the fact that Doc and Rebecca are starting to piece things together about Hauser keeping secrets from them, especially about Lucy and her past involvement with the '63. Probably my favorite scene in the entire episode was when Porter was put back into Gen-Pop and the Inmates were yelling at the Warden to not let Porter have a cell on their block because his Violin would keep them up at nights. So what does Porter do? He begins to play, shutting them all up and getting applause at the end. Ha. Awesome.

Most interesting reveal at the end is that Porter's blood is enough to revive Lucy from her Coma. Very curious to see if his blood/DNA will have any effect on her in a negative way, like if she becomes homicidal like he is.

Garrett Stillman



























Although I liked this episode, particularly the character of Garrett Stillman, it doesn't instill confidence in me that the Season Finale episode is going to give us that big "what the  f u c k " moment I have been waiting for. As much as the creators of the show have tried to hype this up as being on par with LOST, it's not. Right now, Alcatraz is just an "okay" series, but it's certainly not "must-see TV". It doesn't help that they killed off Garrett Stillman at the end of the episode. So, there goes a cool character...............

Tommy Madsen































I thought the episode was good. Entertaining. But the ending, the big reveal just didn't have that 'wow' factor for me. So, they are able to track the Inmates with the lead that has been injected into them? Yeah? So. That's just an earlier version of the Ankle Bracelet for prisoners. I wanted something a bit more revealing. I spent th entire season, patiently waiting and they really didn't deliver on the promise they have been hinting at all season. The big cliffhanger at the end is that Rebecca dies on the operating table from injuries sustained at the hands of her Grandfather Tommy Madsen. She's not dead. Not for long anyway. It's gonna be up to Ray to track down Tommy and convince him to go to the hospital and have him give her a blood transfusion to save her. That's what the Season 2 premiere episode will be about.

Alcatraz: Cancelled; No Season Two

Well that blows. Talk about ending a series on a Cliffhanger.

Yeah, I enjoyed this show a lot, and it appeared to have a lot of places to go.  I am sad to see it cancelled.

I think shows like this, well actually any show that gets a full season pickup, should be required to shoot a wrap up episode that ties these loose ends up. If the show is cancelled, air it. If it gets another season, then use the existing footage as a flashback in the new season. It's  b u l l s h i t  that we invest our time into these shows to get  f u c k e d  over at the end.
