    The Great Escape

    Did anyone watch the premiere last week? I watched online on TNT's website and thought it was pretty good. The teams were on Alcatraz Island which was pretty cool to see. I didn't know Rich Eisen was the host so that was a plus. The 2nd episode starts in about 15 minutes.

    Yeah. I was hoping they would give them rudimentary tools and make them chisel through stone to get out.

    Did have a good chuckle watching team meth try to work out a math problem.

    Same here. I think it'd be fun.

    Re: The Great Escape

    I loved the premise but thought it was boring. Like Cyclonepride, I would have been much more interested if the entire challenge was puting them in a cell and seeing if they could figure out a way to get out if given a few tools an inmate could have gotten their hands on.

    I don't know if it would keep peoples interest long enough. It took Andy Dufresne over 20 years to escape.

    Re: The Great Escape

    I think the idea is great but it could be a bit tougher.
