“Alcatraz,” which debuts on Fox in January, has the pedigree of an outstanding show. It was created by J.J. Abrams, it’s from the producers of “Lost,” and it stars Sam Neill, Jorge Garcia, and Sarah Jones, who’s a positively TERRIFIC actress (*cups hands in front of chest*). And I’m inclined to say nice things about it, because I like Bad Robot (the studio making “Alcatraz”) and I know one of the writers on the show.
That said, I can’t exactly say that this a remarkable promo. I’ve watched it three times, and I think I know LESS about the show than I did when the day started. It’s all, “Conspiracy! Handgun! Lockers! Blurry Sam Neill face!”
Come on, Fox. It’s not that hard to make a great promo for this show. I mean, there has to be at least ONE scene where Sarah Jones is in a tight shirt.
