Series We Loved: Prison Break

Prison Break premiered in August 2005. The show was an immediate hit and followed Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) as he engineered a daring escape from Fox River Penitentiary to free his wrongly convicted brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) from Death Row. With the prison break a success, the brothers, along with six additional escapees, were part of a nationwide manhunt headed by FBI Agent Alex Mahone (William Fichtner), who later was revealed to be working for The Company, a shadowy government organization that had initially framed Lincoln.

The action then moved to Panama where the tables were turned and Lincoln worked to free Michael from the hellish prison SONA. After eventually escaping from Central America, the brothers teamed with Homeland Security Agent Don Self (Michael Rapaport) to dismantle The Company once and for all by stealing SCYLLA, a device that contained the organization's most valuable secrets. Following a series of double-crosses, the brothers now find themselves racing to retrieve SCYLLA, which unbeknownst to them has landed in the possession of their estranged mother and Company operative Christina (Kathleen Quinlan).

Why we love it?
Well..it's not love exactly but i totally enjoyed the whole mystery and running and staff. Never missed an episode. Sometimes it became tiresome though...especially the 2nd and 4th season. It was again and again, going to prison escape and blah blah. Anyway, it still was making me anxious and i liked complex the characters were and how strong their relationships became. It didn't really have a good ending but what can we do....And when they ended the series with a scene 3 years after the event, at least the had the decency to create a movie to fill us of that period. It might not be the best series, but i still believe it was really clever and interesting. And well...i adored Michael's epic tattoo-idea XD


  1. They made a movie too?? I had no idea and I didn't want to start watching the episodes because it became famous the instant it arrived here....It was pretty annoying....

  2. Me neither..but when i started i couldn't stop :P
    And yeah they made a movie, for a part they skipped at the end of the series.

  3. Oh yes, I remember watching this show, the ending of the serie was so sad :/

  4. I loved this series! Can't believe it aired six years ago. Time flies.

  5. I just watched the first season of the show. Somehow I couldn't really get into it.

  6. I'm watching this series for the first time now. I'm up to season four. It's fun. I'm rolling my eyes sometimes and Micheal bugs me sometimes, but overall it's a fun enough show and I'm glad I started it.

  7. i started watching this series after it ended, but i stoped at the second episode, i really didn't like that show but i know a lot of people who are crazy about it.


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
