What I'm Watching: Prison Break

Prison Break: Season 4, Episode 6 "Blow Out" (F)

It's a day at the races! Every single one of this motley crew looks positively ridiculous in their brightly colored hats and supposed disguises. I'm most consistently astounded by Sara's sudden terrific acting skills that she never possessed back in Fox River (I was about to say Sona - too many prisons to keep track of on this show. Except of course for now, where this is no prison). Having a show rely on a computer screen get to 100% every episode is quite the paper-thin premise, but then again, "Prison Break" loves doing that kind of thing. I don't like the idea of trying to make Gretchen sympathetic, and I don't really care that she has a child she had to give to her daughter for her to take care of. The ending scene did make me laugh out loud though, T-Bag running out of his office only to be knocked out by Gretchen, who asks the only appropriate question: "Who the hell are you?"
