UK premiere of Alcatraz tonight on Watch

If you’re in the UK, remember to tune into Watch (Sky 109, Virgin 124) tonight at 21:00 / 9pm for the premiere episode of JJ Abrams’s (Lost, Fringe, Alias, Felicity) new US drama Alcatraz.

In the thrilling first episode America’s most notorious and infamous prison inmates are back, and seeking revenge …

The intense Alcatraz opener sees young San Francisco Police Department detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) assigned to a grisly homicide case, a single fingerprint leading her to a shocking suspect: Jack Sylvane (Jeffrey Pierce), an Alcatraz inmate who died over 30 years ago.

With both her grandfather and surrogate uncle, Ray Archer (Robert Forster), once guards of the prison — Madsen’s interest is immediately piqued, and once the enigmatic, knows-everything-but-tells-nothing government agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) tries to impede her investigation, she’s doggedly committed.

Madsen and Archer

Madsen turns to Alcatraz expert and comic book enthusiast Dr. Diego “Doc” Soto (Jorge Garcia) to piece together the inexplicable sequence of events. The two discover that Sylvane is not only alive, but he’s loose on the streets of San Francisco, exacting decades-old revenge and leaving bodies in his wake. And, strangely, he hasn’t aged a day since 1963.

Will detective Madsen and Soto team with Hauser and his technician, Lucy Banerjee (Parminder Nagra) in an attempt to stop Sylvane’s killing?

Either way, Sam Neill is in it. And Hurley from Lost. Can’t wait! 😀

Might get a novel out one of these days, if she doesn't get too distracted along the way.

  1. I love this show! I tried commenting earlier on my phone but it didn’t work. The first couple episodes were a bit implausable at points, but later on the show gets REALLY good.
