Prison Break: Season Two Series Premiere

This is the second season of this sleeper hit from Fox. The first season centered around Michael Scofield, a structural engineer who makes it his mission to get his wrongly accused death row brother broken out of a maximum security prison. In the season finale, a group of the prisoners do make their escape. However, the jet takes off without them, and plan B is to run for it.

The second season of Prison Break already reminds me of CBS' The Fugitive television show. In pursuit of the prisoners are the captain of the prison guards, Bellick, and an FBI agent- both obssessed with the chase like Ahab in Moby Dick. Entering the mix is Michael's love interest, the prison doctor, who he feels he needs to make amends for.

Of note, the series premiere is available on the Fox website, commercial free. Catch it live on Fox, Mondays at 8 PM.

Preliminary Grade: A
