TV Talk! Prison Break back for another season
Prison Break back for another season
Airs Monday, August 21, 2006
When Michael Scofield's (Wentworth Miller) brother, Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) is convicted of murdering the Vice-President's brother and sentenced to death for a murder he didn't commit, he devises an elaborate plan to free his brother - by taking away his own freedom. "Just when I thought the last season of 24 would finally grind my teeth to the gums, along came Prison Break," said one reviewer.
"Prison Break reminds me of Lost," said another.
Everyone's opinion will differ, however, many seem love this show.
The Plan: Michael spends months preparing a plan to free his brother from execution by breaking him out of prison. Michael is a structural engineer (with an Ivy League education) and happens to have access to the blueprints of the prison, so he has the map tattooed on his entire body (it is disguised as drawings). Next step, getting himself incarcerated at the same prison, which he achieves by committing armed robbery.
Once inside Fox River, Michael manages to not only get in touch with Lincoln, but gets himself involved in a prison work program, which allows him access to the areas he needs to complete his escape plan.
This is a white-knuckle drama that shouldn't be missed.
When is it on?: FOX Mondays at 8pm EST.
Starring: Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller, Robin Tunney, Peter Stormare, and Amaury Nolasco.
