[TRAILHEAD?] Alcatraz

This came from various blog sites that received a box full of Alcatraz stuff - http://LegendsOfAlcatraz.com
It leads to Fox's website and has a countdown to the first episode on Monday the 16th at 8:00pm with a message to join the adventure after the show.
Details of what was in the box and how the website was found (look at the picture with the circled letters at the bottom of the article) are here - http://badassdigest.com/2012/01/10/a-box-of-mysterious-alcatraz-stuff-shows-up-at-badass-hq/

you can elimate the surrounding clutter by just loading the iframe contents*
http://legendsofalcatraz.com/countdown

I don't expect an ARG, but it could be a good extension of the show, as JJ Abrams is behind it.

*(subject to change when the counter hits zero)

Oh well, an ARG to Alcatraz would be awesome, since JJ Abrams' ARGs are always cool (let's forget the un-ending of these ARGs for a moment, hehe)

Apparently we UK dwellers don't get this on telly til MARCH. Sad Still, I'll watch out for the game if it does appear! Stuff in the box looks fun, I'm wondering most about the flower...

So, it's a trailhead of some type, maybe just a game, but still! Yea!
Just checked the website again, menu leads to a thing, looks like it starts on the 26th? Also a twitter hashtag, ect.
God, I really hope this turns into an ARG, I've been wanting a non-grassroots one to play, but I always get in too late or it's a scam.

Alcatraz Site Updated

The menu gives a hint to get to a screen that has coordinates and twitter account with hash tag:
Spoiler (Rollover to View):
The letters that are missing are C M X I V which in Roman numerals is 914. That is the time of the riot to enter in the box:
@alcatrazlegends
#legendsofalcatraz
9:14 01_27.28.29_2012
N37 49.6062 W122 25.3793907
The coordinates are in the middle of Alcatraz but are very specific. Maybe a particular cell or room in there?

I need to brush up on my Alcatraz knowledge. Been needing something to research.

I did notice that! Hopefully soon we can get a decent screen grab to scan it.

just for the sake of completely clickable links,
the countdown URL redirected to
http://www.legendsofalcatraz.com/home
with some intro text, which then linked to the first puzzle
http://www.legendsofalcatraz.com/puzzle
and then the twitter link
http://twitter.com/alcatrazlegends
with an interesting photo of a mystery box!

AZ2024 is just Jack Sylvane's prisoner number; I did not see the QR code, but i hope it merely encodes the same.
