It looks like FOX has another hit show in their hands with Alcatraz. I just watched the pilot episode on Hulu and it blew me away. It looks great, it sounds great and it kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. The actors in the show perform wonderfully, including the fan favorite “Hurley” from LOST who is a main character on the show. The music adds to the suspense and atmosphere perfectly and the storytelling and pacing are just right.
The show reminds me of Fringe with its sort of sci-fi crime thriller / mystery theme which can only be a good thing.
Can’t wait to see where the show goes next. In the words of Dr. Soto (Jorge Garcia aka “Hurley”) “Is anyone else’s head exploding?”
