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 realistic
I am so sorry this show has ended but if there is ever a tv series that could be turned into a movie even if tv special this would be it, I would love to see a two hour special showing everything about this show.
I loved how they show alittle history on alcatraz it deserves to be remembered.
What ashame to cancell a great series that for a change made the viewer think. This program had a outstanding cast and plots to go with them. Now you our going to leave us with those mindless singing programs . The characters inter action was great and I waited each week to try and figure out what the cons would do and how the team would catch. Very few good programs on and now you have trashed one. Bad move Fox, now I will watch even less of your programming .
What a great cast & premise! I just bought the entire season on Blu-Ray. You can't leave this hanging with so many questions unanswered. Please bring it back or at the very least, do a mini-series to wrap things up. I will be watching the news...You will make a fan for life if you do!
Fox you dont understand how ignorant you are being. Any good company would look at these reviews of such great shows and not cancel them. No wonder that you are one of the worst companies around even slightly connected to TV. You should really think about what you cancel next time.
This was a great show! Very disappointed it was cancelled. It was different from other shows which made it interesting to watch and anticipating for the next show. FOX messed up. It's sad when a network lets go of a show that had awesome potential.
Alcatraz is one of the most exciting TV series I have ever watched. If there haven't been many viewer, it may be because there hasn't been enough advertisement. I even love watching the reruns. It is so disappointing to know so far that they aren't going forward with a season 2.
From the creator of LOST comes this fresh new show with great story lines and on the edge of your seat entertainment. On October 12th this will come out on DVD and I have already reserved my copy from Amazon.com. FOX BROADCASTING has a reputation of making bad decisions of bringing new show on the network. The production companies spend quite a bit of money on optaining a cast/crew/making the pilot and then orders 13 episodes and then for the most part cancels a show if they don't get PERFECT ratings in 13 weeks or less. This one show had the potential of taking LOSTS place. Now here is the present>> JJ Abrams has Revolution that starts on 9/17/2012 I have already seen the pilot and I want more. Knowing how this business works it will get a 13 episode run and either NBC will cancel it because production costs are too much or the ratings are too low. Some shows need 23 episodes to see if it will work NOT 13. Networks WAKE UP. Look at Time Warner's DALLAS? 3rd episode and it was granted a 2nd season do you see what CBS has missed out on? EXPLAIN this to me as I have been in television/radio for 28 years. (OH I DON'T WANT AN EXCUSE THAT CABLE SHOW'S ARE DIFFERENT DALLAS WAS A CBS SHOW)
My family and I really enjoyed this porogram and was really upset that they stopped and eand this program. I wish that they would get rid of the crappy shows that they have on and get shows like this to be in front of them. I mean like whats the point of making a show for 1 season? The amount of good actors in this show makes it worth while watching.
Rebecca needed to be older as well as a little hard boiled but with a soul. As the young actress, though no fault of hers, needed to stand up to Emerson at times. As Emerson came off as a bully. And he really was more of a jerk as time went on. Growing and growing on my nerves. As wished that if an older actress that played Rebecca would had told him off and to shove it where the sun did not shine. But I loved Soto and Lucy as you knew all about them. Really they had soul and they cared. As Lucy apologized in the end for keeping both Rebecca and Soto in the dark. As Lucy and Soto would had made a great couple, as she deserved much more better than Emerson. Like Sam Neil but his character was so unlikable.
This show has all the ingredients of becoming a big global favourite. The cast is brilliant, the storyline complex and mystifying. Each episode ends leaving the viewer feeling that they can't wait for the next! Then, from out of nowhere, an exceptionally good show is cancelled while other less entertaining shows remain in Fox's armoury.
I hope everyone involved in the show quickly finds other employment, they deserve it.
I thought this was one the greater shows that fox has put on. Its up there with Lost and it makes sense because they are both done by J.J Abrams. This show should have never canceled. There was the perfect mix between action and comin sense to make the perfect show. BRING IT BACK!!!!!
Serious guys!!! Fox network has the ability to find the most awesome and best shows out there, and then cancel it within a few episodes. Then they sell it to another network which then runs like 3 to 6 Seasons of that series.
Come on Fox, you want to be a decent network, wake the hell up, finish what you start!!!
l Love this show,or is it a mini series?! Anyways, love the story and cast. Can't wait for it to come back, and find out what is going on!! To me this is pretty close to Prison Break! Which I loved also.
