The third episode of “Alcatraz” aired yesterday and we learned a little bit more of comic book writer and Alcatraz expert Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto (Jorge Garcia). Loved the shout out to Malcolm Gladwell’s “Outliers: The Story of Success”, when Soto is told he is on the team cause he has more than double the ten thousand hours needed to be an expert at something. This week the task force searches for a child killer who was beaten and severely mistreated when he was a prisoner. FOX is really proving itself to be the best network for great science fiction inspired shows and I am keeping my fingers crossed for a “Fringe” crossover. There are still a lot of questions to be answered in the series and I am really looking forward to learning more about how exactly the prisoners became lost in time and why they are now coming back. I am very curious to find out what happened to the warden and if he will appear in the series in present day. The flash back scenes of what prisoners went through while they were locked up, really makes you feel for these bad men and makes you wonder who the bad guys really are. “Alcatraz” airs Monday’s 9pm on Fox, I for one have my DVR set to record.
“Alcatraz” is Not Just a Tourist Attraction
