At the start of this season, for Prison Break, I had my concerns about the direction in which the series was heading. But, I hung in there with the third, fourth and fifth episodes that aired after Labor Day (when the first two episodes of this season were run back-to-back).
Those subsequent episodes, that aired before this evening, sorta/kinda gave me what I was looking for…yet there was also enough there to keep me on guard…and keep my aforementioned concerns warmed.
In fact, coming into today’s airing of episode six, I was somewhat mentally prepared to find Michael Scofield wearing swim trunks, on water-skis, getting ready to jump over a shark in a tank full of water.
Guess what? It never happened.
In fact, this evening’s episode was right on point in terms of bringing the twists, turns, and suspense that you would expect from an episode of Prison Break. The scenes with Wyatt and Mahone were great. (The casting of Cress Williams as Wyatt may be the best thing that they’ve done this season. He’s great.) And, now we have Gretchen and T-Bag together. Lastly, you just know something is coming down the pipe with Roland Glenn…
Prison Break, Season 4, may not be up there with the first three seasons of the series (yet) – but, it’s starting to look pretty good after what I saw today.
