- "Alcatraz" is one mid-season show garnering some early buzz. From "Lost" co-creator J.J. Abrams, the show focuses on a secret government unit tasked with prisoners who once vanished from the famous island jail. In tonight's episode, the team tracks a former inmate who has returned to plant bombs in populated areas of San Francisco. (Fox, Citytv)
