Alcatraz is Fox's latest "hit" show and Bad Robot's latest offering to the world of sci-fi/mystery/procedural crime television. It has already been hailed by some critics as the best new show on TV and a game changer for the Fox network.

I watched the first half of the pilot, then had to stop viewing and attend to some fatherly things. As I watched the first 30 minutes I was excited at what I was seeing, like I was bearing witness to the next Lost, which having Jorge Garcia in my face definitely helped. When I sat down to finish watching the show, I decided to watch it all anew, no interruptions, no distractions. I am probably going to get a lot of guff for this, but this may be the worst pilot episode I have seen, ever, and I watched the pilot for Four Kings.

There is a lot of style in Alcatraz. »
