TV Series Preview Of The Day: Alcatraz

I liked Alias and I liked Lost, so I guess I'll be watching this, too. I've been fascinated with Alcatraz since I did the tour in 1999. Kuh-REEPY joint, that. And as cold as an Eskimo's nutsack.

Sam Neill has creeped me out ever since he played Damien the Antichrist.

  1. Wow, he really did play Damien. I actually had to look it up. I love The Omen. I even love the 2nd one... but I've never seen the 3rd part, so I had no idea he was in it. To me, he's forever Dr. Grant.
    As for "Alcatraz" - looks interesting. I didn't watch "Alias" or "Lost", but I absolutely LOVE "Fringe", and enjoyed "Cloverfield" and the latest "Star Trek" movie, so I'll give it a shot.

  3. Looks like a winner! I love JJ -- he's got a quirky life view that appeals to me.

    I've never been to Alcatraz but have always wanted to visit. Briefly. With a boat closely moored and the motor left running.

  4. I've been to Alcatraz and it IS freezing, even in summer. San Francisco is not very far away and they could see the lights and even hear peoples voices across the water if the wind was right. The story I heard was that some of the inmates felt they could visit San Francisco on the astral plane. So, yes, very creepy! The Solitary confinement cell was just about literally, a hole. Definitely worth a visit :-)

  5. Yeah, I was there in June. Brr.

  6. What I found out the hard way is no matter what they say in "So I Married An Axe Murderer", the tour guides do not appreciate being called Vicky.

  7. I've been there twice, the first time with my then-BF whose grandfather had been a prison guard... on The Rock. The day we were there an ex-con (really sweet-looking old dude, of course) was signing copies of his autobiography. We asked if he remembered dear old grandpa (not really very "dear" - I'd gathered he was just like you'd expect, a real hardass), and sure enough, he said he did... Super creepy place. And yes, VERY cold!
