Nine times out of ten, when my friend Bill recommends a show for me to TiVo, it’s usually something dreadful like Dancing with the Stars or Lost. So, when he told me that I had to watch Fox’s new series Prison Break, I rolled my eyes, and reluctantly agreed.
I guess even a blind Bill occasionally finds a nut.
I realize that I now have zero credibility after recommending the God-awful Over There – I waited on this review until I watched three episodes – but I implore you; give me another chance. Prison Break rocks! Here’s your plot rundown:
“An engineer (Wentworth Miller) installs himself in a prison he helped designed in order to help his brother (Purcell), a death-row inmate who insists he didn’t not commit the crime for which he’s been sentenced to die, escape.” – “Borrowed” from imdb.com.
My barometer of an entertaining show usually depends upon whether or not I can keep track of time. One example is Battlestar Galactica. I am so wrapped up in the story that when the episode is over, I am surprised. As I watched this week’s episode of Prison Break, I couldn’t believe that the hour went by so fast. This is a show worthy of your time.
