The best show on TV right now!!,
This review is from: Prison Break - Season 1, Part 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I don't like watching TV.. most of the stuff out there isn't all that but Prison Break definitely exceeded my high expectations. The plot is original and addictive - Wentworth Miller (definitely TOOOOO HOT for his own good) plays the part of Michael Schofield.. Michael and his brother share a complex relationship, but when Lincoln (the older brother) is put on death row for a crime he claims not to have committed, Michael sets out to rescue him.. he too commits a crime ensuring he's placed into the same prison, and thus an elaborate plan of escape commences... No one's ever broken out of Fox River before.. but Michael has one advantage. He helped design the place. Now he has exactly one month to get himself and his brother out of there. But it's not as easy as he thought it would be - he may have the blueprints hidden in an elaborate tattoo on his body, and he may have the brain of a genius.. but he never accounted for the actual prisoners.. how can he get his cellmate on his side? How can he get the tools he needs to escape... and how can he keep his plan hidden from his enemies? At times Prison Break feels a little like Shawshank Redemption, but way better as the suspense keeps you at the edge of your seat..
