After watching the latest episode of FOX’s “Alcatraz” I am both more confused and intrigued. The latest inmate to appear in the future is Cal Sweeney, a bank robber who only steals safety deposit boxes. Eric Johnson does a great job as Sweeney and I hope to see more of him in the series and in general. What we learn this week in “Alcatraz” really just brings up more questions, why are the convicts returning to get the keys? who or what is in the cell beneath Alcatraz? and basically what the hell is going on? So far four inmates have made their way to the future and all seem just as confused as the audience. During a flash back scene we learn that Lucy Banerjee (who is still in a coma in 2012) planned on experimenting with the inmates memories, and perhaps that is why she was shot and while the inmates have no idea where they have been. Next week the first guard appears in 2012 and Robert Forester returns to the series. So far I am hooked on “Alcatraz” and really enjoy the stories taking place both in the present and in the past. “Be sure to check out this great series that is like nothing else on TV. “Alcatraz” air Monday’s 9pm on Fox, I for one have my DVR set to record!
