As a loyal fan of PRISON BREAK, I’m prepared to suspend my level of disbelief for one hour every Monday night — But last night’s episode was definitely testing my limits.
To start, is a seasoned FBI agent like William Fitchner really going to believe that after years of planning, Michael and Lincoln just drove off a bridge to their deaths?
Are Sucre and C-Note the dumbest criminals alive? (Well considering C-Note thought he could ‘pretend’ to be in Iraq when he really was in prison, quite possibly). But seriously — forget your family and loved ones, head to Mexico. You’re just asking to be thrown back in Fox River.
A note to Michael: If you’re trying to blend in, the ‘Forrest Gump’ look may attract some attention.
And finally, how many back-up plans does Michael have? Plan ‘A’ and ‘B’ have definitely failed, are we going to be halfway through the alphabet before the season is out. It seems as though Michael has contingency plan after contingency plan. Here’s a tip if you’re ever planning to break your wrongfully convicted brother out of prison. Ensure you have at least 26 back-up plans (one for each letter of the alphabet). If PRISON BREAK has taught us anything – it’s that breaking out isn’t as easy as it looks, not even on TV.
