Not bad, so far, and I have seen the first two episodes. Definitely intriguing, though I can see how it might go sour after a while if they cannot keep it fresh and interesting (kind of like what happened to "Alias", another Bad Robot sh... read more

Alcatraz, the prison that would earn the nickname the "Rock" was the ultimate American prison. For 29 years, moisture has nested in prison that kept the country's most notorious criminals and put them away from the rest of the world.

Cancelled Shows Ending with Cliffhangers (21 tv items)

"In what would turn out to be Alcatraz’s final episode, Sarah Jones’ main character Rebecca Madsen supposedly dies (spoiler alert) and it is revealed that the show-premise phenomenon occurring at the prison is happening all over the country. Two big cliffhangers, zero resolution."
