    Alcatraz

    Did anyone catch this show last night? Any thoughts? Thought it was interesting. A few clichés but that was to be expected. I was a HUGE Lost fan so I like jj Abrams. This show has some potential. I'll keep watching for sure. I'm excited to how the story unfolds. Btw The River on ABC premieres Feb 16th and I'm freaking pumped for that show. Hopefully these shows turn out well

    My only thought from the 5 minutes I watched, what is Hurley doing off the island!?!?!

    I watched, didn't really consider it to be the riveting show that they're trying to go for. Was decent but for sure won't be a show that I feel like I need to see every week.

    I hope there are frequent reveals and not a ton of drug out mystery.

    I'll DVR it for times I can't find anything to watch. I don't know if it'll be appointment television.

    Re: Alcatraz

    The part I saw with some chick and Hurley talking to a bartender or something seemed very forced and not engaging at all, Monday is Pawn Stars night anyways.

    Re: Alcatraz

    Liked the show. Was not a fan of the the women cop. They should have got a different actress. Not eye appealing at all and not a great actor. Not sure what they were thinking when they cast her. The criminal guys were cast very well.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Ha. I like pawn stars, but most of it is forced/staged, too.

    As far as Alcatraz goes, I thought it was pretty good. I liked the early LOST seasons, but thought that it got a little too far out there for me by the end. Hopefully Alcatraz won't get too ridiculous.

    I'll second this. That guy must only do swimsuit models.

    The River looks more interesting to me. I plan on giving that a shot.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    I was pumped to watch it and thought it was absolutely horrible. Switched away after the first half-hour.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Alcatraz

    I'm a big LOST fan too so I was pretty excited to watch. It was good but not everything I was expecting. I'll keep watching for sure to see how it unfolds because it drew me in enough to have big questions.

    If you think the lead singer of the Dixie Chicks was hot then you would like her. You know the little chubby one on the dixie chicks.
