I dont know if I should watch it or not...more Prison Break sounds good...but why not reboot it and shake it up a bit...coming back after a closure seems odd...will give it a try i guess

My god this is gonna be so trash...and season 4 already was. Will follow, I love escape plans!
Also, Sarah says "Michael died because was terminally ill", and that was season 4 ending. Then there was the "movie" where they let Sarah escape and Michael sacrifices himself, leaving the fact that it died because of that.
But now Sarah says it was because it was ill?? wtf?

It's same old trashy Prison Break! Feels like it might be better to binge though?

The movie is technically the final two episodes of season four combined. Some people saw it as a movie, others just saw them as regular episodes.

Only first season of Prison Break was sort of good. Rest was pretty much pure garbage.

You know the season where they actually are at a prison and are breaking out, instead of the garbage seasons where they are on the run or are in some weird prison thing in Panama? Yeah.. no.. pure gobble gobble turkey stuff.

In the flashback at the very beginning of the episode it showed Michael sacrificing himself. I assume Sarah is just trying to rationalize his decision by the fact he was terminally ill and was going to die anyway.

No. It could have easily ended at season 2 minus the last 5 minutes of the season, think of that as the logical conclusion of the show.

Going from Legends straight into Prison Break is weird.

But I'd like to think this is just an alternate reality with no dinosaurs.

Of all the dead TV shows, how on earth did they decide that Prison Break needs another one? I'm not opposed to reviving dead shows at all, but... Prison break?

Great first episode!

I'm cautiously optimistic and will continue to watch.

It helps that I only saw the first season so I never soured on the direction that they took afterwards.

I fucking loved it. It was so ridiculously OTT and stupid which is just what I wanted.The part where Lincon goes flying through the windshield, I actually burst out laughing. Also, T-Bag is still as entertaining as ever. The opening credits made me nostalgic as fuck. Loved seeing the ol' gang back together.


The dialogue from Michael's son, though. Hopefully he won't be in it much.

Conspiracy theory! Rogue gov agents! Break out of places! Mikes dead (or is he!!?!?) everyone else moves on with their lives.

There I summed it up for you.

Yep everything was wrapped up nicely at the end of season 2 and they went "this show is too popular, we need a bullshit reason to keep it going"

I loved prison break when it was on.

Was doubtful of the revival but i loved the first episode. Don´t think spoiler tags are necessary now but i´ll do them anyway since some haven´t watched yet. It´s all a scheme, you can tell by michael´s expression at the end. He wants to stay in prison and plays the memory loss thing because he wants to protect his brother somehow.

Also i actually laughed out loud when the dude flew straight through his windshield of his own car and just got up.

Will continue watching.

With some of these impressions here you'd think it's a really bad show but then i kinda like shows like Arrow and that has been somewhat trashy as well for certain seasons so...

I loved the first season of Prison Break. Maybe even the first two seasons. But anything beyond that I question why it had to exist. Almost as if they had not planned that far ahead and just started throwing shit at the wall until they ended up with throwing them into random prisons again and the poorly thought out illuminati shtick. It was just bad.

Skeptical of this new season, but will give it a chance.

why would you tell him that? lol

"Hey do you know this mosque out of millions of mosque in the world?"

"Yeah sure, easy!"

No, watch season 1 and maybe season 2 if you're curious. The jury is still out in this new one.
