Prison Break is an American serial drama television series that premiered on the Fox Broadcasting Company on August 29, 2005. The story revolves around a man named Lincoln Burrows who was sentenced to death for a crime he did not commit and his brother Michael Scofield’s elaborate plan to help him escape his death sentence.
Created by Paul Scheuring, the show is produced by Adelstein-Parouse Productions in association with Original Television and 20th Century Fox Television. The current executive producers are Paul Scheuring, Matt Olmstead, Kevin Hooks, Marty ,Brett Ratner.
The show is currently in its third season. The uniqueness of Prison Break is attributed to its serialized story structure, a similar format used by Lost and 24, and to its setting, as very few television series were primarily set and filmed in a prison. Its success and recognition as a prison drama revived interest in the genre following the success of Oz.
I’m a bit late, but the fourth season of Prison Break just started. Three shows have already been aired. I wondered how I would find these episodes. This episode was also pretty good. Even if you think that they wouldn’t really find a way to continue the narrative, it continues to be riveting. The crew is faced with multiple problems on a lot of different fronts. Will they be able to find a way through them?
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
