Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Robert Hull Director: Nick Copus Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 Fox burned off two episodes of ALCATRAZ on Monday, making my life hell since I gotta do both hours. The first episode “The Ames Bros.” had a good deal of mythology and flashbacks that made it interesting to a degree even with the payoff being (at least for now) lame. The second episode, “Sonny Burnett”, offered little to none of this and was more of the inmate-of-the-week centered on […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “The Ames Bros.”

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Robert Hull Director: Nick Copus Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: March 5, 2012 How much of a baddass is Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) on ALCATRAZ? The guy must be in his ’70s (if we are to believe he was 20-something when he first began as a guard at the prison), yet could care less if he’s standing on a land mine, he gets shot and brushes it off as if a flesh wound and gets blown up by dynamite only to grumble […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Johnny McKee”

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Robert Forster Writers: Toni Graphia Director:  Brad Turner Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 20, 2012 I’m beginning to doubt the longevity of ALCATRAZ. This isn’t a show like FRINGE or SUPERNATURAL that can give us compelling and cool experiments and weird s*** happening all the time in a non-mythology story or even two or three episodes that will stand alone and we’ll be happy. The whole premise of the show is finding out why these inmates have traveled through time and are re-appearing and […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Paraminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Leon Rippy Writer: Jennifer Johnson Director: Paul Edwards Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 13, 2012 “A couple of things … You just killed a good man and my legs hurt.” – Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) on the ALCATRAZ episode “Paxton Petty” So that was pretty bad. The quote that I begin this review with was said toward the end of the episode “Paxton Petty” on ALCATRAZ but there were equally as bad lines throughout this episode but this one stuck out the most for […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Guy Hastings”

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne Writers: Bryan Wynbrandt, Steven Lilien Director:  Charles Beeson Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 6, 2012 So it isn’t hard to figure out the pattern of storytelling on ALCATRAZ, although granted “Guy Hastings” in terms of the overall plot was a bit of a change as it was a prison guard returning rather than an inmate. The pattern follows this general principal: Madsen (the getting hotter by the episode Sarah Jones) whines about something her father – an inmate in Alcatraz or her family has […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Cal Sweeney”

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne Writer: Elizabeth Sarnof Director: Brad Anderson Network: Fox, Airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: January 30, 2012 The biggest question coming out of the “Cal Sweeney” episode of ALCATRAZ is: What’s behind door No. 1? While the episode itself was another inmate of the week returning to modern day in order to cause havoc on San Francisco, kill a whole bunch of people and steal loot. It turns out that Sweeney (the inmate in question) wasn’t just wooing lonely tellers in order to get swag but instead a […]Read On »
