We finally get a few answers on FOX’s “Alcatraz” this week and for the first time in the series the time travler is a good guy. Jim Parrack takes some time off from fang-banging to guest star as Guy Hastings, the first prison guard from 1963 Alcatraz to find his way to the future. Parrack is great to see on network television and I hope we see Guy again in the series. Robert Forester is back as Ray Archer and with him are a bunch of revelations. Turns out Tommy Nelson is Ray’s brother not friend, which makes Ray Rebecca’s uncle! Also Ray knows about the whole disappearing from time thing and has seen his brother Tommy!! Now we just have to figure out why is Tommy Madsen so important, what he did, where has he been, why is he being hunted and why is he being such a dick. Very strong episode this week that really explores the big mysteries of the show. My curiosity about the series has never been stronger and it pains me to think we wont be getting any real answers anytime soon. “Alcatraz” airs Monday nights 9pm on FOX. I for one have my DVR set to record.
