Has anyone seen Prison Break?

The series. I'm on the 4th season, episode 5. The series is so damn addicting (went through 5 episodes just today). What did you think of it? Please don't ruin it, all I know is there's a sad ending, just from looking at reviews.

It's a pretty good show. Got a little out there near the end but still good. I don't know if your conclusions are necessarily correct either. I'd stick with it and keep an open mind.

I found the first season excellent, the second very good, and after that it went downhill very fast (I didn't even watch the last three or four episodes)

Overall it was a great show, but they never managed to recapture the highs of the first season.

By the middle/end I wanted Tancredi to just be killed off or something. Proper annoying character.

Was close to being killed numerous times.

I thought the first two seasons were the best of the series. I did think that the dialogue at times was a bit cheesy, but overall I loved the series. I was a tad disappointed with the ending, but still amazing.

I love this show! I was devastated when I finished the series. It's so depressing when you're coming up on the last few episodes because you know there's nothing left.

I really enjoyed the first 3 seasons or so, then I just stuck with it after that to see how it would end.

Still a solid series, IMO.

I hate these shows's format

They keep adding new twists in the story that makes it unbelievable

Just a way to milk the series

Prison break and burn notice come to mind for this type of never endning cliff hangers

Very good programme seen it twice, once when originally on TV and once again recently when joined lovefilm (like netflix).

Second time did notice the unbelievable far fetched stories more in the later series but still very enjoyable. Reminded me of 24 when everything was falling into place then there was another twist to drag it out some more.

But even despite that still in my top 5 series.

Not at all. How can anything that ends with a four years later tag and the main character dead be considered a cliff hanger? I think that's as solid an ending as you could hope for. But in today's cynical world I guess some people are like: well we didn't see Michael die so maybe he is still alive .....

He has some kind of disease. You think its gone but his nose bleeds in the last episode which is foreshadowing that it came back. I find it hard to remember exactly. I loved the first season but it just went nuts....

This show was awesome at the beginning, but like many things in the entertainment industry, they try to milk it for all it's worth, and unfortunately they milked this show dry in the end.

Yeah, Lost is a prime example.

It go so weird and twisted, there was no way to bring it to a reasonable end.
