“Alcatraz” Series Premiere Review

January 18, 2012 | Posted in Television | By


I just watched the Series Premiere of “Alcatraz” which aired this past Monday January 16th. Luckily I have a DVR so I finally had the chance to watch it tonight! Within the first 10 minutes of watching I was hooked! This show is filled with tons of action and drama. It has a lot of twists and turns that you would never even see coming. The story is amazing and keeps you at the edge of your seat the entire time! I’m extremely excited for this series and I can’t wait to see what happens next week!

SYNOPSIS: When San Francisco Police Department DET. REBECCA MADSEN (Sarah Jones) is assigned to a grisly homicide case, a fingerprint leads her to a seemingly impossible suspect: JACK SYLVANE (guest star Jeffrey Pierce), an Alcatraz inmate who died over 30 years ago. Given her family history – both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, RAY ARCHER (Robert Forster), were guards at the prison – Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued. When the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent EMERSON HAUSER (Sam Neill) tries to impede her investigation, she becomes doggedly committed to it.

“Alcatraz” airs Mondays @ 8pm on FOX
