What I'm Watching: Prison Break

Prison Break: Season 3, Episode 2 “Fire/Water” (C-)

This is like “Prison Break: Lightning Round.” How fast can Michael break out of prison? The sped-up version of the first season is far less interesting and often too dark to be entertaining. The alliances and such formed at Sona make little sense, and I was quite confused about how Michael let Mahone go and then how the Mayor let the wanted man live. How does the Mayor have a phone? Worse, however, than the prison happenings, is what is going on outside the prison walls. Why doesn’t Sucre just have his beloved fiancée just hop on down to Panama to come see him? Sure, it might be a little complicated, but at least give it a shot. And these really must be the dumbest criminals ever who point guns in people’s faces while orchestrating a massive secret plan that depends upon the messenger skills of the guy whose face the gun is in. Well, at least Lincoln thought enough to make a fake bird book. Yeah, that is likely.
