Alcatraz > Alcatraz Season Finale Review: Unlocking the Mystery > Comments Page 2
Sean: This may just be an oversight, but "Lost and IT'S infamous hatch" should be "Lost and ITS infamous hatch." "It's" = "it is".
I actually really like Lucy, I kinda feel sorry for her. The scene when she was talking ti Rebecca in the 'box room' (as I call it) was kinda touching. Honestly hope that she doesn't have anything to do with all the 63s coming back.
Does anyone know why Hauser insists on keeping her safe? Does she have a bigger part in the whole 'jumping' thing without maybe even knowing it?
I'm very intrigued...
yes the show got off to a slow start but bexame more intersting as the season progressed. theres a new twist to this show its refreshing.looking forward to the next season.
i loved the show im a kid at heart and love a far out mystery
Maybe I'm being nit-picky, but is anyone else bothered by the fact that the age difference between Hauser and Lucy just doesn't add up? He would have to be 50 years older than her now which would make him at least 75-80 years old, which Sam Neill is not. I'm sorry, but it really bugs me when shows do this kind of thing and think you're not going to notice. They should have used an older actor to play Hauser or at least made Sam Neill look older with make up. But I love the show and I love Alcatraz, visit it every time I visit SF.
Ghost death: the most idiot scene that i ever seen !
A enormous glass window in a psychiatric hospital corridor, really ???
This show is one of the most interesting concepts I've ever seen, Fox would be foolish to cancel it before it really gets a chance. (One half season is not a chance.)
I think there's more to Rebecca than meets the eye, and I get a feeling the warden was watching Tommy before he was ever in prison. (A feeling that was spot-on, from what the new creepy doctor said to him.)
I loved the season finale, and can't wait for S2. :)
I noticed that they went down Divisidero st in San Francisco, with a Mustang, like Steve McQueen did in the movie. That was a nice touch.
I think they could have done better with some of the episodes, but I still like this show. I'm actually surprised they gave us so much information in these 2 episodes then they have with all the previous ones. I think the show is a great concept, and hope they improve a little more if they get a chance at a 2nd season. I can't see them killing off the main character, so I would assume, they give her the blood with the silver in it for next season or they see that she did respond to the defibrillator. I hope they give this another season, if they do I will watch.
Please help me. How did the guy in the mental hospital end up with the key?
I think this show couldn't decide what it wanted to be, a procedural or a serialized mythology show. In the end it did neither particularly well. The makeover didn't really correct the fundamental flaws in the show either. Personally I would have loved to see a true serialized show with compelling characters. We got a new prisoner each week but I didn't care who they were or why they were motivated to commit these crimes. The main characters were not much better and when Rebecca flatlined I just didn't give a you know what! Maybe season 2 will be better but I fear we will never see it.
I personally do not watch a lot of tv. But I like this show and am very curious to see it come back for a second season. There are still lots of unexplained things.
Out of all the things in the show the one thing that bugs me the most is that they couldn't open that door without keys from 50 years ago, i mean really?
Throw some damn thermite on there, you go a bunch of guys trying to figure out how people time traveled\jumped into the future but you can't get through a door? That's laughable.
I kept watching this hoping they would explaine what happened or put some excitement or reason into the chases. Or at least give us a character of real interest that we could pull for. Only stand out is chain smoking doctor from the passed. I see no reason for this show to be given another season.
It looked like the beginning to me....
Cut off my first comment! I meant to say, the actress who plays Rebecca is bland, bland, bland, as is her character. She just never seemed interesting to me, although others may disagree.
And, as for the second comment that got cut off, I was saying: Now THAT's how you write an intriguing, unique character. I hope we get another season to hear the rest of his story; I am sure it will be fascinating.
In fact, my biggest disappointment concerning this finale was that I was so sure we would see the warden but did not. I am, sure, however, he was, and always is, there, just behind the curtain, pulling strings like the man in "Wizard of Oz".
I love Sam Neill in anything he is in, but feel he wasn't given enough screen time in this show. Dr. Soto is a good character, but I feel he was in Rebecca's shadow too much. And Lucy, well, we hardly knew ye. Again, truth be told, Rebecca, the main character, turned out to be completely uninteresting to me, but others may not feel that way. I just know that anytime the warden was in a scene, I was always waiting for that proverbial "other shoe" to drop. Don't trust him as far as I can throw him, and that maniacal grin is just this side of ridiculous. But would you want that smile directed at you, knowing that you may be caught up in something, as are the prisoners, that you will never be able to truly escape from? Now THAT'S how you wr
For me, this was a somewhat unsatisfying finale. Somehow the story doesn't seem at all finished, and I am sure the writers are counting on a second season to be able to continue to tell their story. Whether they will get that chance or not remains to be seen. I hope they do, though, as I suppose I will be watching.
The reviewer asked: "it still doesn't answer why the criminals only choose to commit crimes one at a time. Why don't they all go crazy and cause havoc at once?" I really believe it is because the Warden is playing puppet master in the present day, just as he did on the Rock. The former inmates have no choice but to do his bidding. How and why he is doing this is one of those things that remain to be seen; perhaps a second season will give us more answers. I believe the writers started out with intentions of having Rebecca be the star of the show; slowly but surely, to me anyway, the warden and Tiller began stealing the show from her. It doesn't help that the actress who p
A good premiere and good finale aren't enough. Most of the episodes were unwatchable. If it's renewed, I'll watch the premiere to see what happens with Rebecca. I really like Lucy. She shouldn't have been in a coma for 9 episodes!
