Tube Watch: Thoughts on JJ Abrams’ ALCATRAZ

All right, after months without a show to get excited about, finally Alcatraz arrives.

Tube Watch: Is NBC’s The Cape worth watching?

I first saw The Cape's promo clip on tv many months ago, it strikes me like a Mask of Zorro + Batman Begins rip off in that the protagonist is a regular guy who takes on a secret identity to fight crime. I didn't remember much about the series until I started hearing the radio …
