I was very excited to watch this television series when it came our originally because it was a big hit and I seemed to be the only person on the planet who wasn’t watching it. I have to say that I was somewhat disappointed when I did watch it. It was not as riveting or interesting as I hoped. That is not to say that it does not have its moments. Unfortunately for me they were too few and far between. It seemed to me with all its government conspiracy stuff to be a rip off (and a poor one at that) of The X-Files without the aliens. Nothing is as it seems and everyone is evil in this show. It is all a little too far fetched for my tastes. We are even expected to believe that the nice blonde wife from ‘Thirtysomething’ Patricia Wettig is now the evil vice-president of the United States who will go to any lengths to get what she wants.
For those few of you who are not familiar with the show the basic premise is that Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell – Blade: Trinity), the no-good brother, is set up for the murder of the brother of the Vice President of the United States, Caroline Reynolds (Patricia Wettig – City Slickers, Guilty by Suspicion). He is sentenced to die for the crime. His structural engineer brother, the good one, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller – Underworld, The Human Stain), gets himself arrested and placed in the same jail as his brother. Before his arrest Michael, who helped design the jail, has thought up an elaborate escape plan in order to free his brother. Once inside he has less than a month to put the plan in action.

At the end of Season 1 this motley group of inmates busted out of jail and was now on the run. Season 2 begins with them trying to stay one step ahead of the law. Just because they are out of jail does not mean they are free; life on the outside proves just as dangerous for them. A nationwide manhunt is underway plus the two brothers know they cannot trust every member of their group. Michael (played by Wentworth Miller) and Lincoln (played by Dominic Purcell) are risking everything in order to uncover a government conspiracy
The series has come full circle by the beginning of the third season in that lead character Michael Scofield (played by Wentworth Miller) is back behind bars again. This time it is no cushy American jail, but a dirty and dangerous Panamanian jail. Michael is locked up with the wonderful T-Bag (played by Robert Knepper), Bellick (played by Wade Williams) and Mahone (played by William Fichtner). In a case of role reversal, his older brother Lincoln (played by Dominic Purcell) is on the outside trying to get Michael out of jail.
Season three provides the same type of action, suspense, drama, and the occasional plot twist that we’ve come to expect from Prison Break. It feels kind of incomplete and rushed at times due to the dastardly writer’s strike. As a result the season ends up only being 13 episodes long.
