    Can't believe there wasn't an official thread yet. I assume others watch this show. Some 24 fans maybe?
    Tonight's episode was almost as predictable as last weeks episode of Lost. Hope the writing on both shows picks up again.
    Anyone have any idea what season 2 will be like? The Fugitive? I heard Michael was suposed to loose his marbles once they broke out and Lincoln would take charge in clearing his name.
    From the preview for next week it looks like the spook is in trouble. You don't want to cross a company man. He'll be out for revenge. He may even help Lincoln. Although I doubt Lincoln will want it.
    I can't imagine this series lasting more than 2 seasons. How many seasons did The Fugitive last?

    I can't believe you decided to make a thread on this today of all days. Every single day after Prison Break this whole year I'v wanted to start a thread on it but have been too lazy.

    Anyway, I thought tonight was an awesome episode. I love Michael's acting (the actors acting and the character's), I think he's just brilliant. It was really disappointing at the end to hear haywire say "who are you again?" I was so angry.

    And you mentioned that you found this episode to be too predictable. I'v found that with many previous episodes but I had no idea what Michael was thinking here. It didn't occur to me that Haywire might help him until I actually saw him.

    That's better

    That was a lot better than last weeks episode, and next weeks looks great.

    Soon

    Second season is suposed to be them on the run trying to clear Lincoln's name a la The Fugitive. Lincoln will take charge while they're on the run, because Michael is supposed to loose his marbles for real. Can't imagine it going past 2 seasons. The supporting cast would have to change drastically.

    Wink Wink ... a little birdy tells me its the best episode of prison break he's ever seen! And he's seen it so I'm sure he knows ...

    it basically sets all the rest of the plots into place for the remainder of the season and man they're sexy

    i downloaded (from BT) and watched the first season. i thought the premise was dumb when the show first came out, so i never watched it. i've kept up with the second season shows weekly.

    i think its kinda like a modern-day shawshank redemption in a way-- with more plot and more characters. sometimes it seems that there is almost too much plot and too many things that go in the characters favor. but with some suspension of disbelief the show is very entertaining.

    ...oh and the doctor chick is pretty hot too :)

    Well they haven't even broken out of prison yet here...:rolleyes:

    Though I have been enjoying the show I think the second season will really struggle to survive (I'm very surprised they even made one!). I just don't think there's enough to draw on to make 'The Fugitive' seem interesting.

    No turning back now

    It looked like it was going to be 2 steps foward 40 steps backward again. And I thought it would turn out that they would fail, but the conspiracy would be exposed some how. Now after seeing the preview I guess they're going for it. I can't believe Michael's confession though. The hunt is on.

    Wow,

    Prison Break should have made it on these forums a week before it was on air :D

    I have to say (hands down) this is by far the best TV Show out today. It keeps you on the edge. I can't wait to see next weeks and if they are going to get out :)

    I was disappointed with last weeks episode not because it was a bad episode, but because in the previews they made it look like they were breaking out this episode. So I was really disappointed when I looked at the clock during a commercial break and it was 8:55.

    And did anyone notice that they played the House music during this episode? I thought that was cool.

    If they got right to the point they would not keep you on the edge nor keep you coming back watching more and more ;)

    I missed tonights episode. Of all the episodes to miss... I miss the one were they finally break out. :eek: Who died? The old man? Michael's cell mate? I saw all the other guys in the preview for the finale.

    Every time I see a commercial for this show I want to watch it. Do I like Prisons? No. Am I interested in the escape of criminals from prison? No. Am I interested in the plot at all? No.

    The men in all the previews are delicious! I would watch the show just for the remote possibility that these two might get it on:

    I liked the show and watched all eppisodes, its kinda adictive (think 24) but the acting could use a lot of work.

    Edite- Is it me or is the main star a swiss army knife? i mean he has everythign planned, to good in my opinon.
