Prison Break is the best show. It doesn't delay things like on Lost which made me hate the show and not watch it ever again. It pushes the story line and always has an exciting episode.

Start watching it if you don't but be warned that it may be a bit hard to go along with it because there was some important things in earlier episodes.

Yeah, it doesn't delay things...except for....you know, that whole prison break thing.

Anyway, glad to have it coming back.

It's great - the only non-comedy show I watch. I wouldn't say that they don't totally delay things though, since they're always finding ways to stretch it out (eg. giving Michael that other cellmate for an episode so he couldn't do any work on the breakout). Still, you're right, it's certainly not like Lost, with so many questions and so few answers - they move it along at a steady pace.

Shame the show's premise only really allows for 1 or 2 seasons at the most, though, since he's only got, like, what, one month to break out? But hey, then again, 24's been going for 5 years and only 5 days have passed in that.  roll eyes

LMAO, how true, Beamer. Oh wait.....

I'm glad the show is finally coming back, and after on the same night as 24, that should make for some great television. I hear that they're going to do like Lost and have flashback that will let you know why they're in prison, it may also change how you feel about your favorite character.

My brother is a gym teacher here in Chicago and the teacher's daughter who attends the show is one of the characters young version in the flash backs, I am going to see if he can get any of the plot lines out of her.

A little girl? T-Bag? No, I don't think so. But you do what you need to do to get info out of her. That's all I'm going to say about that.

'Prison Break' may copy 'Lost' and do flashbacks? Hmmm, if this is true, then I guess there is a way to stretch out the season a bit longer.

Possibly, but a lot of people I talk to don't like the flashbacks on Lost, so does everyone this it's a good move? BTW, I love the flashbacks on Lost.

I don't really care about most of the characters on Prison Break, so I say bad thing. And T-Bag is interesting, but I don't want to see him making sweet, sweet love to 7-year-old boys.

The flash backs help set up some story. In Lost they use flashbacks to show the background of people which isnt very important.

And prison break dont stretch it out, they have obsticles. In Lost, they have all this crap like computers, and hatchs and others. Nothing new comes out in Lost...ever.

You're from America though, so you get them before anyone else. YOU try waiting 3-12 months for new episodes to make it to you.

I've been waiting since November to see the thrilling conclusion of the fall finale. I managed almost without killing someone. But I meant the people who live here in America. Anyone here watch the show when it airs? Or do they download?

I like how they are stealing LOST'S idea of flash backs, good episode.  As for the little girl that my brother teaches, the only thing she is saying about the plot is that in one episode her "dad" beats her, she was actually pushed around and hit during taping but they told her they cut out the hit in the face. I guess she was only on the set for a short time.

They only did the flashbacks because it would take an entire season to show what happened first before they got to the cool break out strategy.

I hope they dont kill the show by dragging it out TOO long like Lost did.

SBS is a super-liberal channel that caters to Australia's multi-cultural market. They show foreign shows during the day, and their original programming usually consists of news and documentaries. There is some good stuff they have to offer, though, such as South Park in a great 8:30pm Monday timeslot, and plenty of borderline soft-core foreign porn movies at night.  wink

Just because they're doing an idea that another show has done recently doesn't mean they're stealing it.

Really? Is that the channel Prison Break is on down there?

New episode tonight (that's gonna get old since there's a new one every week), looks like an interesting episode too. More of Warden Pope.

Prison Break is on Channel 7. SBS and ABC mainly cater to either Australian or other non-American programming (SBS has a lot of foreign-language programming, ABC has a lot of british shows). Channels 7, 9 and 10 are the more mainstream channels - 7 and 9 are often in direct competition with eachother over the 30-50 age demographic, Channel 10 seems to cater more to the teen-30 age group.

Anyway, Airbag, apparentally this week they're doing a special that goes back and explains everything that's happened in Prison Break up to this point, so if you're going to start following the show, now seems like a good time to do so.

Special seems to me like lazy clip show. I watched the first 14 episode of pb in a marathon run because my cousin burnt me a dvd of it. Now I just download weekly anyways I never saw that special because there was probably no need.

Well, in a way they are stealing it from LOST because LOST is doing very well right now.  They aren't going to try stealing the idea from a show that has been canceled.  I know many shows have done this but for right now that is probably why they are doing it.

Well if Lost didn't create it, then they must have stolen it from another show. Probably a show that got cancelled? Can we stop talking about stealing ideas? The idea for the flashback came a long time before Lost, Prison Break, or probably television. Maybe the movies did it first?

At least Prison Break isn't doing the flashback thing every week. And when they did the flashback episode, they didn't have the characters run into eachother before they were supposed to meet. Except when Linc ran past the spanish guy.

In TV Guide or something, it said after watching that episode, your alliances with a character would change. Did that happen?

I liked this weeks episode, I wonder what's up with that guy, did he really forget, or what?

I didn't know that 'special' episode was going to be on last night. I really wanted to see a new ep. But I still got shivers down my spine when they played all the coolest bits with that mad music.

No, it was a special behind-the-scenes one they did which sumed up everything from the beginning to now in Prison Break.

It was aired in Australia, I don't know which country you're from so I don't know if it was the same episode.

I live in the states, Amigo. So it might have aired here. Although I'm sure if it did FOX would have had a commercial for it, at least during last mondays episode.

Yeah I hate it when shows do that. It's pathetic. Like when Frasier did an episode a few years earlier. It had Frasier with short hair because nothing can be done about that and they had Daphne wearing a hat run into Frasier and Niles and apologise. It was lame.

I think it might've aired there, since the voiceovers had American accents. It was called "Prison Break: Behind the Walls" or something... either way, it definitely would've aired there a while ago, since it only covered the episodes that have aired down here, and we're still pretty early into the series. The last episode that aired here had Michael getting Falzone arrested in Canada, and ended with the black guy (C-Note or whatever his name is) joining the break, so that gives you an idea of where we're up to.
