    Alcatraz

    Did anyone get a chance to watch Alcatraz yet?

    I have it on DVR, but I won't get to watch it until tomorrow sometime.

    I had a chance to watch it, and I liked it. It's a slow build, but the characters are strong, and the writing is crisp and interesting. They've laid out a very cool foundation for a drama/thriller with some comedic relief. Well acted cast. If they can keep the steep twists and turns coming without it coming off as cheesy X-files/Lost wackiness, we'll be in for a good run.

    It wasn't bad. Definitely kept my interest. Where it goes from here remains to be seen though. Plus...it is on Fox, which means if it is a good show it likely won't survive a season.

    Fox has plenty of good shows that survive. Heck, they kept the X-Files on way too long.

    So far good show that has a neat mystery and I think writers have learned a lot from the failures of Lost.

    Not bad at all. They are setting it up so that any number of people could be good or bad. I'll keep watching it.

    I don't know what it is but every time I hear Sam Neill speak with an American accent, it sounds strange.

    It is a decent show though. I'm however just waiting on Justified to return..

    The reviews I've seen were generally not positive...but honestly? I thought it was neat. A good mystery behind the whole thing, some sci-fi elements blended in with a cop drama.

    It had good intensity though. Gravitas, I guess you'd say.
