What I'm Watching: March 26th

I've decided to include SPOILERS below so as to better review individual episodes. Be advised.

Prison Break: Season 2, Episode 21 "Fin Del Camino" (B-)
Some of the plotlines are tying themselves up nicely, and it's a thrill to see all the characters coming together again. The whole Sara Tancredi trial is a thread that normally wouldn't seem too interesting, but the addition, however implausible, of Kellerman as a somehow "reliable witness" is intruiging. The resolution with T-Bag is satisfying, and I'm hoping next week's season finale will be great, as long as Bellick and Kim aren't too obnoxious. I'd love to see Mahone sail off with Lincoln and Michael and for them to be on the run together next season, though that might get a bit ridiculous.

24: Season 6, Episode 15 "8:00pm-9:00pm" (F)
I had hoped this episode would be better than last week, but unfortunately some of its weaker plotlines have continue to spiral downward. Daniels' proclamation of the president's incapacitated state is wholly improbable and truthfully asking way too much from viewers as far as suspension of disbelief goes. The Rick Schroeder thread is hardly interesting, and it seems like the writers are grasping for straws. The saving grace is that Jack is finally nice to someone, and that story works well enough.

The Riches: Season 1, Episode 3 "Operation Education" (B+)The first thing I have to say is that Eddie Izzard is continually stunning. His dialogue is delivered in a very clueless yet unbeatably suave manner, and the writing certainly doesn't hurt. Minnie Driver also improves in this episode, and Shannon Woodward, as daughter Dehlilah, is excellent. The storyline is a bit far-fetched, but it is executed in such a wondrous manner that I'm continually excited for each new episode.
