ALCATRAZ & LOST GIRL


Two shows began tonight, ALCATRAZ & LOST GIRL...


ALCATRAZ is really two TV shows. The first is a standard crime drama, except that the criminal is known pretty quickly and he just has to be found before he kills again... oh, and he's also a criminal who disappeared from Alcatraz when it closed about 60 years ago... and he still looks the same. (That's the second TV show -- a standard (?) JJ Abrams what-the-hell-is-going-on premise probably to be played out with tantanlizing hints over as many seasons as the show runs.)

The execution is excellent. The cast is terrific. The writing is good. But we've seen both of these shows before, just not mashed up into the same show. (You can write the pitch: it's [INSERT A] meets [INSERT B].)

A = a JJ Abrams show, pick one
B = a crime show, pick one

LOST GIRL is an appealing succubus story. The characters are very attractive, and the action is interesting and even a bit surprising, perhaps -- with a little SPARTACUS type gladiator-style action in the middle of the premiere. This seems to be an import by the SYFY channel of a show that is in its second succesful season in Canada.
