I love JJ Abrams, so I am really looking forward to this show. Not a big fan of most of the stars, but hopefully I can get into it.

I watched it and I really liked it.
They need to do something other than just capture all of the 63s. I'm sure there will be some other twists and turns along the way.
I did forget that with JJ Abrams stuff you really need to pay attention TO EVERYTHING.

I watched the 2 hour premiere & liked it. I think that, like LOST, it will take a period of time to capture audience attention due to having to really pay attention. As aklein said, with JJ Abrams programs, you really have to watch everything because little things may be more important than first assumed.

Hubby and I both really liked the 2 hour premier. Lots of questions to answer. We will definitely keep watching.

Did any of you Losties catch when Jorge said "last time I was on the island..." my hubby and I both grinned at each other when he said that! Up until then everyone else called it "the rock" so I'm thinking they let Jorge say it as a nod to Lost. :biggrin: Also thought the score was very Lost-ish, which is a good thing!! Loved the first half of it, we'll watch the second part tomorrow.

^^ I love seeing Jorge back on tv! I just finished watching the second half, and I hate to say it but I really did enjoy it, I'll have to add it to my long list of Monday night tv shows.

I agree with Debbie, I think this show is going to be very detailed oriented with mysteries within mysteries...very LOSTish for sure.

I love how they are using the Alcatraz as the main plot.
I thought it was a great opening show.

Finally watched both episodes on Hulu. I'm personally a fan not only because it has a Lost soundtrack and vibe to it but because it also features SF (and Jorge)! hehe

I actually really enjoyed it! I'm anxious to see how the prisoners have managed to stay the same age as they were when they were at Alcatraz.
