Show Summary

Alcatraz is from LOST and Fringe mastermind J.J. Abrams. The mystery-thriller stars Sarah Jones as detective Rebecca Madsen who is investigating a case connected to a prison inmate who died 30 years ago. Her investigation and connection to the prison leads her to work with an unlikely ally, comic book lover Dr. Diego 'Doc' Soto (played by Lost's Jorge Garcia), while a government agent named Emerson Hause (Sam Neil) tries to intervene and stop her investigation. As Madsen and Soto team up, the mystery of Alcatraz is revealed: inmates that were thought to be dead for years are roaming the streets of San Francisco, continuing their crimes from fifty years ago. As they look into the history of Alcatraz and government cover-ups, they discover that this one prisoner is just a small part of a bigger threat connected with the prison in Alcatraz.

  • As legendary as it's name sake, this viewer has unanswered questions...

    Alcatraz was a terrific show and the final episode left me with so many questions. what happened to the other prisoners? how were they coming back? where they able to catch them all? These questions and more surely other fans had as well, and I believe that a second season is viable - or at the least, a sorta 2-hour TV movie to better wrap up the series... Who's with me?moreless

    i was so excited when this show came out. but as one of the guys in comments said, its not a one long story thing. each prisoner has his own story and he will get captured in the end of the episode. i liked the first prisoner in the first episode so much but i haven't seen much of him. and she is really hot for a cop its just not realisticmoreless
