Waller Directors: Jonathan Milott & Cary Murnion Distributor: Lionsgate Premiere Release Date: theatrical & VOD, September 18, 2015 How good is COOTIES? The first twenty-five minutes or so (minus an opening sequence that will validate every vegetarian in the audience and make everyone else question fast-food chicken forever) could easily be mistaken for a quality comedy pilot about elementary school teachers on HBO or Showtime. Then the […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Jennifer Johnson, Daniel Pyne Director: Aaron Lipstadt Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 26, 2012 It’s not just San Francisco. That’s pretty much what we learned on the season finale of ALCATRAZ “Tommy Madsen”. Warden James (Jonny Coyne) has sent inmates from The Rock (and maybe other places) all over the U.S. Why he is sending these people to the present day – some 50 years into the future – is unclear. It actually is even less clear than when the whole […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Leigh Dana Jackson, Coleman Herbert Director: Eagle Egilsson Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 26, 2012 While billed as the season finale of ALCATRAZ, the first episode of the two-hour finale was more of a setting the stage for the second hour which was actually the finale. In “Garrett Stillman”, the Alcatraz retrieval crew is on the hunt for Stillman, a notorious thief that in the present day is once again up to his old ways robbing three armored cars in order […]Read On »

As the Fox thriller series ALCATRAZ has progressed, we’ve learned a little bit about the mysterious Warden Edwin James (Jonny Coyne) as flashbacks have revealed some of the strange things he’s been up to in the 1960s – many of which could be indirectly or directly responsible for the inmates disappearing and now suddenly reappearing in present day San Francisco. It’s in these flashbacks where many questions have come up such as “What’s behind the mysterious door, what’s the Warden doing with the inmates blood and how does he fit into all of this?” ASSIGNMENT X caught up with the […]Read On »

In Fox’s new series ALCATRAZ, which has its first-season finale tonight in a two-hour block beginning at 8 PM, San Francisco police homicide Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) notices something strange is going on when the fingerprints of a man who supposedly died fifty years earlier show up at a homicide scene. She subsequently learns that Alcatraz Prison, where the suspect had been incarcerated, was actually shut down because all of the inmates vanished suddenly; they are now showing up in the present. If viewers have noticed a slight change in tone around Episode Seven of ALCATRAZ, executive-produced by J.J. […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Steven Lilien, Bryan Wynbrandt Director: Jack Bender Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 19, 2012 While the modern plotline in ALCATRAZ was damn lame, it was the flashback and side story that gave us the most entertaining aspects this week. The key issue about “Webb Porter” is that he has a matching blood type that will save Dr. Lucy (Paraminder Nagra) from being forever in a coma after getting shot in the early episodes. This is important to Hauser (Sam Neill) because […]Read On »

Like many J.J. Abrams produced TV series, ALCATRAZ is a mystery thriller with several different layers to it. It follows Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) and comic book store owner and Alcatraz expert Doc (Jorge Garcia) as they try to figure out why former Alcatraz inmates from the 1960s are returning to the present – and haven’t aged a day. At the heart of this operation is the mysterious Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) who brings the two newbies into the fold.

With only two more weeks to go with ALCATRAZ, the Fox series is building up to a Season 1 finale that is intended to wrap up many of the burning questions, but also open up a lot more if a Season 2 is in the cards. While speaking to reporters at Wondercon, executive producers Jennifer Johnson and Daniel Pyne revealed what they have in store and say they’re in the dark as to whether Fox is going to renew the show for a Season 2. “The last episode is all about Tommy Madsen,” says Pyne. “We focus on the guy […]Read On »
