Where will you be the evening of January 16?

huh, interesting. I haven't heard or seen anything about this on television  :-\

Quote
“We’re only a month or so away from the premiere of J.J. Abrams’ latest TV presentation, Fox’s Alcatraz. As is to be expected from a show with Abrams’ name attached, we don’t know much beyond the basic concept: inmates from the notorious Alcatraz prison vanish in the past and begin appearing on the streets of modern-day San Francisco. The latest teaser for the show doesn’t really provide any new information, but it does play up the mystery and make me want to watch the show, so I suppose that counts as a victory.”

I've been patiently waiting for the premiere of this. I've seen a few promo's for the show, but nothing on par with say Terra Nova which was hitting me over the head with it every 5 minutes.

FYI, I'm gonna watch The Rock tonight before the show airs. The move that is, not the wrestler.

Pilot





Jorge Garcia


Parminder Nagra & Sam Neill


The Pilot sets up some interesting storylines that has the potential to have a good payoff down the road, that is if they get that far. As far as the first hour goes, even with a cool premise, I'm not feeling it with some of the characters, especially that of Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones). She seems oblivious about the whole scenario pertaining to Alcatraz inmates that suddenly return 50 years later without having aged a day and just accepts it as is. And she seems a bit to young to really care about the history of the inmates. The only connection she has is that she finds out later that the man that killed her partner was in fact an inmate himself and who also happens to be her Grandfather. As for Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto (Jorge Garcia), who I really liked on LOST, he just doesn't have much to do except follow Rebecca around. Granted, it's only one episode and I'm willing to give the writers a pass as they set up the series. But I was expecting a lot more from him than what we get in the series opener.

Emerson Hauser (Sam Neil) is the mysterious one that will offer the viewers the chance at for plenty of digging with regards to who he is and what his endgame is,. which kind of gets addressed somewhat at the end of the Pilot. I purposely avoided spoilers and really didn't allow myself to over think the series leading up to the premiere last night. So I was kind of surprised to see....

*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*
Spoiler (hover to show)

This being a J. J. Abrams show, I of course kept my eye out for any mention of the number 47. For those that don't know about J.J., he has pretty much put this number in all of his series from Alias to LOST to Fringe and now Alcatraz. So, let the 47 drinking game continue on. Take a shot everytime you see or hear the number pop up.....


'47' Drinking game begins now......


Like I said earlier, the series has a lot of potential and I will stick around as I have faith in J.J. fixing some of the problems and making this a kick-ass series. He has never disappointed me and I don't think he will here. I'm along for the ride. I gotta point out that Jeffrey Pierce has a knack for playing roles that have ties to the past and somehow resides in San Francisco, as is the case in Journeyman, Episode 5: The Legend Of Dylan McCleen. Just an observation.

Ernest Cobb



Jason Butler Harner, Jonny Coyne & Joe Egender


Joe Egender


Sarah Jones & Jorge Garcia


This episode was more along the lines of what I was expected in the Pilot. Much better overall when it came to pacing and what each member of the team will in fact be asked to do. This episode follows Ernest Cobb (Joe Egender), a sniper sent away to Alcatraz. He of course returns 50 years later and starts sniping more innocent victims. The crime itself wasn't the interesting part for me, it was how he carried himself in his cell and how he try's to outsmart Chief Warden Edwin James (Jonny Coyne), who runs the Prison that I found to be more entertaining. The biggest reveal came at the end when we see...

*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*SPOILERS*
Spoiler (hover to show)

Cobb: There are 47 slats in the picket fence.....

I really should have waited to start the '47' Drinking Game with Episode 3, becaue I am fuuuuuuuuuuuucked up!!! All of Episode 2 was 47 this and 47 that.....

I'm going to have to check this out. I like this kind of stuff. Just cautious of the past shows leading me down unending paths (take note of American Horror Story).

There's other stuff on Monday night but I should be able to squeeze it in or on demand.

I know you have plenty of stuff on your Watchlist right now. But I think this is definitely right up your alley for sure and is well worth getting on board for.
