There are very few things that excite me about television shows, but the name J.J. Abrams is one of them. I loved “Lost” and I’m a huge fan of “Fringe” (though, I must confess that I have missed 3/4’s of this current season because I was watching the entire series of Lost back in the fall and I missed too many shows to go back. I figured I’d catch up on DVD during the summer) and this series, Alcatraz looks like it is a combination of both!
Starring Sam Neill (best known as Dr. Grant from Jurassic Park) and Jorge Reyes (best known as Hurley in Lost) this show looks like it will be promising. I can only hope that Fox pairs this up with Fringe to have an entire night of crazy sci-fi, action and adventure.
