    Caught the two hour pilot of Alcatraz last night (and have the next two recorded), I liked it quite a bit for some reason even though I found the dialogue quite cheesy. It should be a piece of cake to create interesting storylines each week. Sam Neill is awesome and I kept expecting an evil chuckle to end each scene. The score fit the mood of the show IMO. I am slightly concerned that the lead actress feels so miscast and unbelievable as a detective though.

    On a side note, as someone who doesn't watch many crime dramas I didn't realize how much violence they can show on broadcast television. Every few minutes someone else is being shot/stabbed etc

    Alcatraz episode 4 has already coined the best line of 2012 so far: "Hamburglar Escape Tunnel". One guess as to who might've said it!

    Yeah, the lead actress is horribly miscast. The charms of the show have me hooked and she's starting to grow on me. Surprising, because the casting otherwise is pretty spot on. And yeah, that line was pretty cool. I LOVE Hurley. They were so smart about how they fit him into the story. Handled so well that you can actually buy into it. Once again, makes you scratch your head about the lead...hoping that their decision factors in later on. Overall, it's a decent show that has a chance to be more than it is so far. Cautiously optimistic.

    Have no issues with Sarah Jones as lead. Had not heard of her before, so if she can grow to be the next Anna Torv-type lead, then cool. Especially when 6/10 of the threads on IMDB only talk about 'her rack'.

    Funny you should mention that... I am a great fan of 'racks' yet in episode one, where she is chasing the escapee, it was so obvious that they were a hindrance to her ability to run. Part of the reason why I have trouble with her character. Plus she just seems so...I dunno, lightweight, for a character who is hinted to have a lot of depth. Like I said, it's not a deal killer. Just a head scratcher.

    Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan Signed for Showtime Drama Series MASTERS OF SEX

    Looks like Paul Bettany dropped out. It's amazing the level of talent that tv is starting to bring in, drawn in by better storytelling than the movies no doubt. Hopefully the studios will notice and start making smarter movies, naaaah probly not.

    Anyone watching House of Lies on Showtime? I find it pretty entertaining.
