Questionable Decisions Abound On 'Prison Break'

November 18th, 2008 11:22am EST
Prison Break
Things are starting to heat up on "Prison Break" as the ol' gang inches closer towards uncovering the secrets of Scylla. The double crosses will continue to pile up, and in true "Prison Break" fashion, the body count probably will as well. Before all that though, there is a matter of drilling. Lots more drilling.

Where is Tom Cruise when you need him?

Michael (Wentworth Miller) needs surgery (remember that massive tumor that he has growing on that freakishly genius brain of his?) and he is refusing to get it. Mahone (William Fichtner) tries to convince him to go get the tumor ...

One Step Closer To Scylla On 'Prison Break'

November 11th, 2008 11:26am EST
Prison Break
With Termie out of the picture and The General thinking that everyone is dead, the gang on Prison Break has a little window in which to find Scylla before it is moved. Will they take advantage of this opportunity? Or will Bellick's death be in vain?

Mourning

Everyone is in a very somber mood after Bellick's sacrifice. It is kind of hard to believe that the level of grief the gang is feeling over Bellick's death is so high, as until quite recently he was despised by pretty much all of the major characters. Then again, these guys (and gal) have been through quite a lot together...

Sad Times On 'Prison Break'

November 4th, 2008 12:18pm EST
Prison Break
The body count has been significant this season on "Prison Break," and last night it climbed even higher as two more major characters were lost, including one that has been around since the very beginning. Throw in a few more plot twists and you've got yourself one heck of an exciting episode.

From torturer to torturee

Picking up from where we left off, the gang has captured Termie (Cress Williams), and they are trying to coerce him into calling The General (Leon Russom) and telling the big dog that everyone is dead. That will allow them to break into The Company facility and ...

A Long Expected Betrayal On 'Prison Break'

October 21st, 2008 10:54am EDT
Prison Break
This week on "Prison Break," the gang finally was subject to a long-expected (at least by viewers) betrayal by computer wunderkind/all around dirtbag Roland. While this plot development was hardly a twist, there were enough interesting tidbits, plot developments and action to keep things rolling and provide us loyal viewers with another exciting installment.

Those were the days…

We start off this week with an exciting flashback from Lincoln's past, back in his days of depravity. Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) and his companion have a job to do, and it involves brute force (hence why ...

This Week on 'Prison Break:' Blood Feuds, Indecent Proposals... and Vegas!

October 7th, 2008 12:16pm EDT
Prison Break
The best season of "Prison Break" thus far was season 2. Sure, purists had a problem with it ("they're no longer in prison!); but as far as unpredictability, craziness, and sheer fun are concerned, it was unmatched. Well, that might all be about to change. Season 4 might have started off a little unevenly, but if the past few episodes are any indication, the journey to the season (and perhaps series) finale is going to be quite a trip.

Not So Strange Bedfellows

We left off last week with T-Bag (Robert Knepper), having just fled from a suspicious associate at Gate, frantically r...

'Prison Break' Recap: Changing

September 30th, 2008 10:54am EDT
Prison Break
The great thing about "Prison Break" is that even when it does enter the occasional rut of repetition and predictability (and honestly, there aren't many shows that don't), things usually don't take too long to get back on track. That is why it was only a matter of time before the show broke away from the "card an episode" format and we received an exciting new installment that advanced several storylines.

A Day at the Track

Ok, so just because the card an episode formula from the past few episodes was not utilized this week does not mean that there were no cards involved. They ...

Not Just On TV Anymore: Favorite Series Are Now Just A Click Away

Not everyone has TiVo. As nice as it would be to come home late from work or class and be able to flip on 30 Rock or SportsCenter even though they aired hours before, some do not have that luxury. For some, if a show is missed, it is gone forever. The luckless viewer is resigned to hope for repeat airings or, for those most unfortunate, future syndication. However, a new day has dawned for those left in TiVo's shadow.

Now, many of the major broadcast and cable networks have engaged the possibilities of integrated marketing. With the increasing popularity of the Internet and the prolife...

'Prison Break' Recap: Breaking Into Federal Buildings In 30 Minutes Or Less

September 23rd, 2008 11:50am EDT
Prison Break
Thanks to fare such as "24" and "Prison Break," Monday night has become synonymous with over-the-top, illogical, nonsensical, but nevertheless eminently enjoyable escapist programming. Naturally, with an all new episode of "Prison Break" airing last night, that trend continued. And it was good. "Prison Break" good (which really is a classification all of its own), but there is one caveat. If there is one thing that "Prison Break" usually isn't, it's formulaic. However, in recent weeks, the hunt for the data cards has become just a little repetitive. Thankfully, there is enough jolly o...

The Hunt For The Cards Continues On 'Prison Break'

September 16th, 2008 10:18am EDT
Prison Break
So what happened this week on "Prison Break?" Did the gang find another card? Did someone get killed? Were there any major plot holes? Was it entertaining? No need for suspense...the answer to all those questions is yes. You shouldn't be surprised. This is "Prison Break," after all.

The Obligatory MiSa Pandering

Things kick off this week with a tender little moment between Michael (Wentworth Miller) and Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies). They look longingly at boats and talk about how some day, they will sail away together. That's all well and good, except for one little problem...

'Prison Break' Recap: Someone Dies, Lincoln Sweats, Michael Saves the Day

September 9th, 2008 10:29am EDT
Prison Break
Last week's lengthy, exciting, confusing and show-changing season premiere effectively (or ineffectively, depending on how you look at it) put the Sona storyline to rest and brought the action back to the U.S. New characters were introduced; both heroes and villains. There were awkward, inexplicable reunions, shocking losses, hasty exists, and of course the obligatory Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) brawl. So, how was the follow-up, now that the story arc of the season has been established? Pretty solid, even if it did lack an appearance from everybody's favorite Revlon Girl (Jodi Ly...

'Prison Break' Premiere is Sloppy, Yet Satisfying

September 2nd, 2008 10:36am EDT
Prison Break
Ahh, the long awaited return of everyone's favorite over-the-top, unrealistic, yet incredibly entertaining television series. No, we're not talking about "24" folks (although Jack will be back soon enough), but rather its erstwhile Monday night partner in crime, the incomparable "Prison Break."

Last season ended abruptly thanks to that pesky strike, but those clever writers still managed to lay the groundwork for another spectacularly unrealistic year. What followed was a wildly uneven, yet ultimately entertaining premiere, which began as a muddled mess and by its conclusion had co...

Top 10 Shocking Moments In Recent Television History

Audiences love television because it allows the viewer to become a voyeur. Great television, though, allows the viewer to identify with the characters on screen and become wholly immersed in the fictional world that’s being created. Television can also shock viewers.

In an age in which the viewer can become a fly on the wall in a Mafioso household or counter terrorist agency, it’s no surprise that audiences can be stunned by what they see on television. However, there are moments on the small screen that stick with us. Twists, revelations, and blind sides leave our mouths agape a...

Fox 2008-09 Schedule Is Solid, Surprisingly Straightforward

Eliza Dushku stars in Dollhouse
Usually this is the time of year when people are left scratching their heads, futilely trying to comprehend the four or five schedules that Fox has just unveiled for the upcoming season. This year, however, the folks at Fox have left the confusion of a year-round schedule to NBC, instead choosing to go with a much more conventional (and less headache inducing) Fall/Spring plan.

Fox has been doing fairly well recently, and it is safe to say that "American Idol" is no longer the only show keeping the network afloat (although it doesn't hurt, declining ratings and all). Therefore, it is...

Leave Them Hanging: Favorite TV Cliffhangers

Television is a medium that thrives on manipulating audiences into tuning in, and no narrative device is more effective at accomplishing that task than the cliffhanger.

5) The Simpsons: "Who Shot Mr. Burns?"

TV Stars We'd Like To See On The Big Screen

Television. It's a compelling medium in itself - but also frequently acts as a launching pad for actors chasing big screen dreams.

So, who should the next TV-turned-movie star be? Here's our Top 10 List to get you thinking.

10. Morena Baccarin. Beauty meshed with an all-around intriguing persona should make Morena Baccarin a natural pick for big film projects. Yet, somehow she's flown largely under the radar, instead developing a str...

'Monk' Season Finale Was Ripe With Sorrow & Drama

Monk
Picture a scene where a police captain waits by the shore for his friend, a widower desperately seeking his wife's murderer, to wash up. The two plotted to fake the second man's death, since he was being framed for murder by a corrupt cop, and the air is ripe with tension. Everyone in his life, all of his friends and family, believe that he is dead and are grieving.

Now this could easily be found in any common crime show, but if someone told me months ago that the season finale of "Monk" season six would feel similar to "Prison Break," I would've laughed in their face. Not the sweet, ...
