Network: ABC, Airs on Mondays at 10 p.m. Original Telecast: June 18, 2012 ABC has long been trying to start a reality show franchise that it can own outside of THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE and DANCING WITH THE STARS powerhouses.

Now, they are trying to copy BIG BROTHER with THE GLASS HOUSE. Of course, this reality show made headlines before even airing because of the lawsuit […]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 »

Like many J.J. Abrams produced TV series, ALCATRAZ is a mystery thriller with several different layers to it.

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Leigh Dana Jackson Director: Jack Bender Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 11, 2012 ALCATRAZ has fallen into the trap of giving us a reason for these inmates coming back from the past and into inmates just returning from the past for whatever reason to do ill will toward innocent civilians. Whereas the first few episodes of the show, those that returned had a purpose, were sent on missions by someone or some organization and whatever damage they did along the way […]Read On »
