A - Z Challenge: P

P is for………………………Prison Break.

Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is on death row. He has been convicted of murder and his alleged victim was the President’s brother.

Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) is convinced of Linc’s innocence so he devises a meticulous plan to help him escape the notorious Fox River prison. Stage one is to deliberately get himself convicted so that he can set his plan in motion from inside the prison walls.

Sounds more like a movie than a tv show but this brilliant drama lasted four seasons and featured some of the best tv performances of recent years. The pick of the bunch has to be Robert Knepper’s portrayal of the despicable “T-Bag” who unbelievably ends up as everyone’s favourite character.

It consistently delivered high tension, action packed episodes and is a must-see for fans of quality tv.


  1. Never had an opportunity to watch this series.

  2. T-Bag was the man!

    Good choice, Ricky.

  3. I miss this show! Loved the first season best (and I had a huge crush on Wentworth Miller, or "Wenty", as me and my girlfriends called him).

    Hmmm... maybe I should Netflix this and enjoy it all over again.

  4. Alex, it's fantastic, you should treat yourself to a dvd boxset.
    Michael, just don't ask me to hold your pocket !!
    Jennifer, I can never decide if I enjoyed season 1 or 2 the best, I'll just settle and say they were both brilliant. 3 suffered from the writer's strike but it all kicked off again in 4. I miss it too !

  5. Great show and excellent little rundown!

  6. I've never seen it! What channel was it on?
    Thanks for signing up at my blog. I'm at the 300 blogs followed limit. But, if you will add my email (p.tillett@cox.net) to your autosend list, I'll be sure to read your posts!

  7. Thanks Matt.

    Pat, it was on Fox in the US and 5 then Sky1 in the UK. I'm pretty sure repeats are shown everywhere. Will sort your email now, thanks.
