All 13 episodes from the US crime drama executive-produced by J.J. Abrams. In March 1963 Alcatraz prison closed and the inmates were supposedly transferred. In reality, however, both the prisoners and the guards completely vanished. The reason for their disappearance was never discovered but now, in 2011, former inmate Jack Sylvane (Jeffrey Pierce) turns up, without having aged, and appears to be taking orders from a mysterious source as he once again engages in criminal activity. As Jack apparently no longer exists, catching him proves difficult for FBI Agent Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) and his team, Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) and Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia). To make matters worse Jack is not the only former inmate to reappear...

Don't expect an explanation
I really liked this series, and I bought it knowing that the studio hadn't renewed it for a second series. I had hoped that the producers would either wrap it up properly at the end, or at the very least have added an interview on the dvd saying where they intended to take it/future plot lines. Given my no spoilers limitation I can't say a lot more, but we are left not knowing the motivations and relationships of some of the main protagonists.
