What I'm Watching: Prison Break

Prison Break: Season 3, Episode 3 "Call Waiting" (D)

This whole cell phone in prison thing is just not doing it for me. The guards having pulled out is a stretch, but this is just ridiculous. The boss gets calls and makes calls as freely as he wants, complete with a complimentary charger and someone presumably paying for his monthly plan? I was also under the impression that Panama was a decently large place. With the simplest of terribly unsubtle clues, Lincoln locates LJ and Sara remarkably quickly. A tiny bit of realism would not hurt this show. It is impressive in a bad way that this show can take two fascinating characters, T-Bag and Mahone, and turn them into entirely boring and bland wastes of space. I really hope that the "Company" moves up its timetable so that Michael will break out of Sona ASAP. I consider giving up on this show, but that is its obnoxious appeal - I cannot leave Michael stranded in prison.
