Prison Break 2 Premiere Video
Sorry for the delay in the little "surprise." Basically, Just Jared is teaming up with Fox to allow full streaming (at least) of the first three Season 2 episodes of Prison Break! Very exciting as you can watch these PB episodes as many times as you want… commercial free! If you missed the premiere last night or want to re-watch it… go for it!
UPDATE :: It seems this only plays in the US and doesn’t work on Macs! Sorry for everybody that falls in that category…
Now onto the recap… What a season premiere! The departure of one major character (RIP Veronica), the arrival of a new one, FBI Agent Mahone (thank goodness he was renamed from Buck to Alex), and what will the fugitives do next?
Veronica’s exit was expected (did her picture need to be removed from the credits that quickly?) but was ultimately sad. Were the two body bags really necessary? However it was moving to see a big man like Lincoln break down from hearing her die. Ouch. I guess the good doctor is the last woman standing. And yes, she is alive and we will not be seeing the last of her since Michael left her a cryptic message (what was with the dotted code on the bottom? — pictured above) in his signature origami crane.
(Continued before the jump)
Invasion’s Bill Fichter is an excellent addition to the show. His menacing and equally calculating Mahone is the antithesis to Wentworth Miller’s Scofield. So is Scofield really as clever as he thinks he is by leaving a scent of cookies for Mahone to follow? Or has Michael finally met his match? Although Mahone with a cheat sheet of the tats does not exactly make him too smart in my book. And what’s with the pill-popping? Sounds eerily like another Fox character. I’m looking at you, House.
It was so amusing to see Lincoln and Michael (aka Archie Ryan and Phineas McClintock) with the best disguises, and they were wrinkle-free. Must be some powerful fabric! Abruzzi’s high water pants were a vision in themselves. And that train sequence? Pretty intense. Very nice opening Fox. I’m still giggling over Bellick’s “I will gun you down Scofield!” By the end of the episode, it looks as if the gang has already gone their separate ways. And another prison break in store for the brothers? Stay tuned next week for “Otis.”
