Alcatraz Pilot Series Premiere Review

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.

Hip-hop star Dmx in giant snake horror

Giant snakes have been slithering their way through sci-fi and horror films for decades.

In Boa, TV Superman actor Dean Cain encountered a prehistoric snake woken from hibernation in the Antarctic, while Jennifer Lopez battled a writhing whopper up the Amazon in Anaconda.

Arnie wrestled with a scaly giant in Conan the Barbarian; genetic experiments caused supersize reptiles in Komoda vs Cobra; and in Snakes on a Train (inspired, of course, by Snakes on a Plane) a cursed passenger released serpents from her body before finally turning into the gigantic mother-of-all-monsters that devours the entire locomotive.

Well, if that wasn't enough to get you hissing, reach for the anti-venom and brace yourselves for Lockjaw, starring rapper Dmx (pictured right) and released on DVD by Metrodome on May 10.

A voodoo curse, thought buried in the mists of time, reignites the fanged horror of the infamous Kulev Serpent - the gargantuan 'Lockjaw'.
