Prison Break series 1 was one of the most original television series I have seen. Season 2 tended to stretch the imagination a little bit, and so I didn't expect much from series 3. Due to the writer's strike this season is much shorter, but I think this really works in PB's favour. Because we are treated to 22 normal episodes squeezed into just 13 episodes, the action is fast and the plot is constantly evolving at high speed. It makes for very exciting viewing.
For me, William Fichtner (Mahone) and Wade Williams (Bellick) steal the series and both play superb roles, each having their own personal struggles.
Sadly I feel this series falls short because it leaves you asking huge questions from a very early point. For example, my nagging thought was "'The Company' had such influence and power over everything in Series 1, so why couldn't they just get Whistler out by pulling the usual strings?". It was also pretty disappointing to finally realise who's side he was on. Of course getting him out the easy way would make for boring viewing, but you have to wonder whether the plot gets a little too thin in places?
Either way, I did enjoy this series and the fantastic way in which each character evolved in yet a new and fresh direction. Also it was great to see Scofield in the last episode showing his true strengths - I'm looking forward to Series 4...!

When you look at the intelligence and the quality of the first Season and the pace and the depth of the second, what was missing was the dark and gritty side and Season 3 has that in all 13 episodes. It is more dark, we see the violent side of Michael Scofield and the emotional side instead of his clam persona. The setting is scary, brutal and an image of hell. Sona is without a doubt, the scariest prison you will ever come across. The inmates run the yard, people die and nobody comes out alive. The writers were really clever with Sona, it is the setting that we get to see Michael's different side. The side where he is not only brains but aggressive. I think the star of the 3rd Season is Alex Mahone's character. He has become more important as the show goes on and the newfound respect he finds with Michael is great for the show. With the sweaty and heated feel of Panama and the dark, rainy, hot and brutal reality of Sona.........this Season is brilliant and is the best of the lot in my view.

The starting point of the original series was that a structural engineer was going to break his death row brother out of prison by getting sent to prison himself and then using his tatoos, and his work helping the prison governor construct a matchstick model of the Taj Mahal, to tunnel out of a maximum security prison and get to Panama. Naturally, the brother was the victim of a vast conspiracy on the part of the shadowy forces controlling America, a conspiracy which boiled down to giving the vice president's brother a nice house and a set of false teeth.

So far, so not exactly cinema verite.

Some viewers have obviously felt that season 3 was stretching the plausibility of the story. This doesn't do justice to the wild implausibility of what has come before. The plot of Prison Break is total gibbering nonsense from start to finish. Season 3 is as silly as seasons 1 and 2. It's absolutely brilliant.

If you want a serious, thoughtful attempt to capture the complex, ambiguous relationship between criminal and governmental structures, watch the Wire; personally, I watch Prison Break because it's nonsense on stilts, but nonsense with a completely addictive narrative drive, played out by a fantastic set of character actors.

If you took seasons 1 and 2 for what they were - the best fun on TV - then season 3 won't disappoint you.

Prison Break is one of the best shows ever, and the first two seasons prove it. The third season will slightly dissappoint at the beggining, but later on it becomes much better and more in the spirit of Prison Break.

This season has Michael Schfield, Brad Bellick, FBI Agent Alex Mahone and T-Bag incarcerated in Sona, a hellish Panamanian prison, with no gaurds, no order and no chance of escape. I don't want to spoil why, but Michael is forced to try and break out another inmate, James Whistler. This will only be possible if he forges alliances with other inmates, and his brother, Licoln Burrows. Through out the season, you will see Lincoln do seemingly random tasks, which you only understand later on as they escape plan unfolds.

The only things I can find wrong with this season, is that due to the writers strike there are only 13 episodes instead of 22. Also, it would have been much better if they kept up the pace from the second season at the beginning of this one.

Overall, I think that Season 3 of Prison Break is worth it, even if it does very slightly dissapoint. The good news is that Season 4 will be a full season with 22 episodes, and the return of one of the most loved characters in the series.

Excellent series. Loved every minute of this set. So much so I was compelled to buy the remaining series as well. We had a Prison Break marathon and didn't want it to end. I am not going to ruin it buy giving you plot out-lines etc except to say, action packed, on the edge of your seat stuff with plenty of eye candy for the ladies!! Well worth the purchase!!
