Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on January 17, 2012

Alcatraz is not created by JJ Abrams, but he’s a producer, and his influence is all over it. It feels like Lost and Alias and Fringe: slick production values, the pilot throwing a lot of mysteries at you, supernatural elements, the same music from all his shows, and characters that you’re not sure if they’re good or bad. Unfortunately, it didn’t grab me as much as the aforementioned shows’ pilots. That said, it’s a science fiction show with a network TV budget and a hot blonde girl as the lead, so it would have to be pretty bad for me not to watch it. And it’s not bad at all. Just a little disappointing, I guess.
