Premieres Monday, January 16, 2012. I am really looking forward to this one.
Looking forward it. Could use a brain bender show about now.

How is this any different than the "Prison Break" show that was on Fox before? Because you know there is going to be prison escapes to make the drama flow. I lived through the whole prison escapes thing four times in over 17 and a half years working for the state of Texas prison system. I think I'll pass on this show .

Different premise than Prison Break. Takes place in modern times and delves into the history of a prisoner who died decades ago while incarcerated there and is the suspect of a current investigation.

My impression of the preview (but I could be wrong) is that they will have a criminal of the week from Alcatraz's past come forward and they will have to figure out who it is and investigate the criminal's methods from the past to apply to current day to catch them.
Essentially a plot like: Dead hookers showing up with X traits, who in Alcatraz used to do it? Hmm matches the profile of prisoner Y.
How is this any different than the "Prison Break" show that was on Fox before? Ummm, maybe because in Prison Break hundreds of prisoners didn't vanish 48 years earlier and start to come back. Just a thought.

It has a lot of top notch people behind the production.

Looks "4400"-esque and with JJ Abrams behind it, I'll definitely be checking it out ...
though after watching the trailer in the OP, perhaps I don't need to watch the pilot now. :D
