• Prison Break, Season 4, Episode 6 “Blow Out”

    Posted by on September 29th, 2008 · Comments (3)

    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…

    Good stuff.

    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.

      Yeah, I’m enjoying it, too. I don’t even worry about “jumping the shark,” etc. I just sit back and enjoy the show. :)

      Cress and Gretchen both come from Nash Bridges. I’m glad that both of them got jobs. Cress is so badass and that eerie intro music is so on point. Cress is playing one of the most chilling/cold bad guys of all time. In my opinion, Break is becoming more like 24 than 24 was! So far, they have put in a couple of out there scenarios, but Cress brings it back to the real!

      T-Bag and Gretchen’s encounter was interesting. I wonder if they hook up with Scofield and Co at the Crew’s Digs near the docks. I’m waiting for Wyatt to go all Terminator on them and ivade their sanctum.

      Jumping the shark? Guess what each episode is formulaic BUT so what!!!??? I watch this show for that seat of the pants action that it provides. Like I said, it’s become the new 24, since 24 is rebooting…….
