  2. Jake says:

    It looks great. It sounds like they’re trying very hard to convince the slack-jawed idiot types who watch CBS procedurals to give it a try too. Good luck with that.

    If you don’t know, Jorge and Bethany are doing an Alcatraz podcast called Diego’s Soul Patch. It’s going to be great!

    Hey, Luke, it would be great if you gave the show a chance before judging it based on promotional material. There is enough garbage on TV these days to warrant wishing for something new and interesting. Let’s not wish the show ill before it even airs. I, for one, have followed Abrams since Alias and love his work. It is true that not everything is as wonderful as LOST but even LOST had a couple of rocky seasons. In the end, if you get attached to the characters and the story and you’re left wanting more every week that will go a lot farther than the stupid reality shows the dumbed down the greater audience loves to watch these days! What I worry about most is that it WILL be a great show and like many other really good shows it will get canceled because the dumbed down audience has lost the ability to recognize good programming, good writing, good acting and good directing.

    I’ll be watching! But I hope it doesnt take away chances for Terra Nova. It seems Fox is just waiting to see how Alcatraz does, to decide whether they’ll cancle terra nova or not. please dont hate me for liking terra nova?! lol.

    J.J. rules and willing to take chances. Can’t wait for the two – hour series premiere on January 16th but I’ll watch more episodes to come On Demand when the season or series is over.
