Second series of the cult US prison drama, following the fortunes of a group of prisoners plotting a big breakout. This second season continues where the first left off, eight hours after the prison breakout. A significant development in this series is the introduction of FBI agent Alexander Mahone (William Fichtner), given the task of tracking down the eight escapees. The fugitives each follow their own journeys, which lead them across America, hotly pursued by the authorities. Episodes comprise: 'Manhunt', 'Otis', 'Scan', 'First Down', 'Map 1213', 'Subdivision', 'Buried', 'Dead Fall', 'Unearthed', 'Rendezvous', 'Bolshoi Booze', 'Disconnect', 'The Killing Box', 'John Doe', 'The Message', 'Chicago', 'Bad Blood', 'Wash', 'Sweet Caroline', 'Panama', 'Fin Del Camino' and 'Sona'.
Prison Break season two simply shouldnt work. Having effectively concluded the story arc at the end of season one, there was real cynicism as to whether the pace, energy and excitement could possibly transfer to more episodes.
Yet thats overlooking the sheer presence of the fascinating, twisted bunch of characters we got to know, love, hate and jeer at throughout the shows maiden season. And in many ways, the second series of Prison Break evolves into a logical extension. If youve not seen series one, look away now.
With Michael and Lincoln Burroughs, along with the other escapees, now on the run, the focus switches to keeping out of prison rather than trying to break into it (not for nothing does one of the shows creators cite The Fugitive as an influence). Thats no easy task though. On top of the media interest in them, there are the political forces behind the scenes that were slowly developed in the maiden season,
Once you add into the cauldron the simmering relationships between the escapees themselves, and the feeling of distrust that underpins them, the second season of Prison Break falls into place. And do you know what? Its genuinely as exciting as it was first time round.
Sure, the show takes the occasional narrative shortcut, and shows willingness to test the boundaries of realism as much as it can. But theres no getting away from it: Prison Break is relentless, exciting television, and when this second season concludes with a logical progression to whatll happen in the third, you cant help but demand more. --Jon Foster

Put simply for those that are new to this, its about one brothers plan to break his wrongly accused brother out of Prison by getting himself locked up enabling him to set about his intricate break out plan. Oh yeah, I forgot about the tatoo...
Season 2 continues where the first left us, the prison break out. Our group of cons are now on the run across America with Officer Brad Bellick and others in tow.
British-born Wentworth Miller as in season 1 plays Michael Scofield brilliantly, he continues to carry out his plan of helping his brother Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) escape following his ultra finely executed plan. Cool to the point of frozen, Scofield is a focused, finely detailed individual who is so driven you wonder if its all way too perfect.
On the run the brothers are aided by their motley crew of fellow cons who despite differences inside know the reward awaiting them if they are successful in escaping. One of the fellow cons and the stand out character for me in this whole programme is Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell played amazingly by Robert Knepper, at times his portrayal of this perverted, creepy letch is mesmorising. T-Bag also happens to be one of those characters granted the best one-liners in the show and Robert Knepper delivers them with aplomb !
Unfortunately this time around the escapees don't have it all their own way as in pursuit for this season is FBI Special Agent Alexander Mahone played brilliantly by William Fichtner (ex-Invasion). Along with T-Bag this guy is unforgettable, not only is he battling the brilliant mind of Scofield but he is also battling his own demons which enables Fichtner to demonstrate some great acting.Read more ›
Essentially, this series is all about the relentless pursuit of the escapees by a significant new character, Agent Mahone, played by the outstanding William Fichner. He is on an intellectual par with Michael and what we end up with is a real game of cat and mouse. Mahone is almost like a Terminator and his presence adds another layer of intensity to an already tense show.
Meanwhile, we see Michael attempting to locate Westmorelands $5,000,000 stash, clear both his and Lincolns names, reunite with the very pretty Sara Tancredi and flee the USA. Not only does Michael have to contend with Agent Mahone, he also has to evade, Kellermann, a now rogue Belick and the might(?) of the USA's finest law enforcement agencies.
One area in which Series 2 surpasses Series 1, is the embellishment in the secondary characters storyline's. T-Bag, Sucre and C-Note are given more screen time and, as a result, there is even more depth/emotions/humour there.
Sure the show is extremely far-fetched,but it is supreme fun and highly addictive, with lots of cliff-hangers. The finale is inspired (if a little over-the-top) and, for me, laced with genious and originality.
We are in a golden era of television, what with Sopranos, 24, Heroes, Lost, Rome, The Dead Zone etc and this is no exception!
Season 2 of Prison Break continues to captivate audiences with its nail-biting stories, intriguing characters & pulse pounding action. The pace at the start is frantic and as the season goes on some of the episodes move slightly slower than others but still remain thrilling never knowing whats coming next which leaves you with the 'must watch next episode' feeling, TV at its addictive best.
The show retains its high standard in this second season leading to a shocking cliff-hanger it will be interesting to see where prison break goes from here. If You haven't alreday get dug into Prison Break
