Alcatraz The Series

I've caught the first 3 episodes of J.J. Abrams' latest series after "Lost", "Fringe" and "Alias". Abrams' penchant for one-word titles isn't the only point in common. It has that core group of 3 or 4 unusual characters mixed up in a completely wacko situation with a very wide mythology. And with the exception of "Lost", the other shows also have women as the spiritual leads. Pretty soon, if not already, Abrams will end up becoming a genre unto himself, like Alfred Hitchcock.

Hey, it's got Sam Neill in it. He gives good glower!
