PRISON BREAK – FOX- Series reboot – Eps 1 & 2 review and a few thoughts

 

I’ve been looking forward to this series coming back for quite a while. Seeing Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller on Legends of Tomorrow made me realize that maybe their story wasn’t quite done yet.I don’t want to give too many spoilers away for anyone who has not seen the originals 4 seasons, but they made it very hard to bring the show back to life….deadly hard.

Some of initial grief I have heard about the first few episodes is that the show is too political. I don’t see that. I see trying to take a storyline about Prison Breaks and making it fresh. This crew has broken out of just about every construct on the face on this earth. Why not let them take a crack at one of the most hellish prisons in the world that happens to be in Yemen? Simply being American can make them a target.

It looks like the entire gang minus Willian Fichtner is back. It was so cool seeing Robert Knepper back as Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell. His deliciously evil character has evolved a bit in this new series but he still has that edge. I’m watching episode 3 tonight and so far I have been very entertained. Season 5 Trailer below.
