Cast for her impressive ability to lie utterly still, just like Clooney’s wife in The Descendants.
Seriously…wouldn’t you be bummed to find out you’d been cast as George Clooney’s wife, and then you spend the entire film lying in a hospital bed with your eyes closed, not uttering a single word? At least Parminder Nagra has the advantage of being fully awake and functional back in 1960, even though it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever for a female doctor – and an Indian one, at that – to be working on Alcatraz at that time.
Hi friends! How was your weekend? I myself participated in and won my first scavenger hunt of 2012, because I am a GIANT DORK. Speaking of which, have you guys been playing Fox’s online game, Legends of Alcatraz? If you’re into puzzles and such, you should check it out. Otherwise, ignore this entire paragraph.
Last night’s episode of Alcatraz introduced us to re-appeared prisoner Johnny McKee, a dude who gets revenge against mean ol’ bullies by poisoning them in really horrific ways. This was probably the first criminal that you sort of sided with – after all, the dudes he killed were all jack-knobs, the type of guy who would cut you off on the freeway and then give YOU the middle finger. Man, what I wouldn’t give to be able to off some of those d-bags myself. (And if the cops come for me, I never said that. Okay? Okay.)
Last night also brought the return of Jack Sylvane, aka The Good-Looking One. He definitely has the best haircut of any of the returned Alcatraz guys, anyway. I mean, did you SEE that Moe-cut on Johnny McKee?! I mean, what IS that???
We also got a little bit more scoop on the overall Alcatraz mystery, as well as a couple of answers to some of our outstanding questions…although it was sort of disappointing to find out that Lucy’s mysterious ‘methods,’ as mentioned by Emerson Hauser last week, simply consist of the stuff we already knew she did – electroshock therapy and the like. Weren’t we expecting a little extra?? Did Hauser really think electroshock and a little couch therapy would bring Lucy out of her coma? REALLY?!?
I’ll be touching on all of that and more in the full recap, so please come back in a day or two and join me, won’t you? In the meantime, avoid any public swimming pools, and catch up with all of the previous episode recaps here! Thanks for reading!
P.S. – If I’m ever unlucky enough to be in a coma, I want the full Lucy Banarjee treatment – someone who does a thorough hair and make-up job on me each and every day (as well as somehow keeping my mouth closed so I’m not drooling all over myself). Thanks.
