JJ Abrams new show ‘Alcatraz’ started on FOX last week. As a fan of Alias, Lost and Fringe, I was really looking forward to this. Did it live up to my expectations? Yes.

It has a great premise and a central mystery, the latter that only Abrams knows how to craft so perfectly. Sam Neill grated on my initially, but if I think back to when Fringe first started, the character of Walter drove me mad and he is now one of my favourite things about the show. So hopefully the same will go for Sam Neill! I was also pleasantly surprised to see Parminger Nagra on the cast. Won’t say anymore to avoid spoilers but the pre-premiere trailer is above for anyone who’s curious.

Sarah Millican

Sarah Millican is an up and coming English stand-up comedian, who won Best Newcomer award at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and has appeared on several tours and television.

Prior to her first comedy gig at the age of 29, she had never set foot in a comedy club before. Her husband left her in 2004 after seven years of marriage, but on the flip side this left her with some hilarious material to draw upon. I think the reason why I find her so funny is the way she delivers her punch lines so sweetly in a slightly venomous way. Hope to see more of her in the future.
