Prison Break S2 DVD Release!

leave a comment »

The second season of Prison Break will go on sale August 21st….

Honestly, I’m quite excited to see how it runs together upon second viewing.  I’m actually bummed it comes out so late.

That date will probably overlap really closely with the season premiere, if they stick to premiering earlier than everyone else.

Prison Break 2.22- “Sona” Recap

with one comment

Let me start off by saying this season finale for Prison Break far outranks last season’s weak ending. Who would have thought they could weave it all together and leave it open for what is now a very anticipated season 3 for me.

The Good:

  • Glad T-Bag got his due, and looks to be stuck in the slammer in Panama for awhile…..Odds are he’ll get out, but I’m sure he’ll be put through alot before then.
  • That setup where the scientists (or whatever they are) say breaking out again is exactly what the want Michael to do. It’s almost like they are the Others, only Fox’s version….What do they want him out for?!
  • The twists and the turns…..I thought Kellerman was on the good…turns out he still is a little conniving. My only question, was he killed, or did those shotguns all miss him. Somehow, seeing as he’s been cast in the Grey’s spinoff, I think poor Kellerman will bite the dust. But….I am intrigued.
  • Also….how about the demise of Bill Kim…..I didn’t like him much, and kind of saw the shot from Sara getting him

The Not so Good:

  • The overall creepiness. Not really bad….I just know I never want to be stuck in a Panamanian prison, or wherever the heck they are now.
  • So is all that money just sitting at the bottom of that pond?

No complaints really….

I’m intrigued to see where this goes, and I’m glad the finale lived up to the hype I’ve given it. All of the 3 previous episodes felt like finales, and that is good, because Prison Break seemed to have dipped a little in the middle.

All I know is…..I’m ready for August…..and Season 3 (a full season!)

Still missing Heroes on Mondays, but the season finale for Prison Break should compensate for that.

Prison Break- Michael has to save Lincoln….Kellerman is clearing Sara’s name….T-Bag is caught….Bellick is in prison…..Sucre has to save Maricruz…..Lots of stuff to be resolved in this finale.  I’m looking forward to it, seeing as I’ve been with the show since the beginning.

24- I think I remember something involving Jack interrogating Gredenko….honestly, I need to stop watching the previews.  Of course, I never can remember them until the next week’s episode starts. I’m hoping for some major revelation, but I wouldn’t count on it.

Prison Break- “Fin Del Camino” Recap

leave a comment »

So this episode was again particularly satisfying.  Things are shaping up for a decent finale.

Bellick, Michael and Sucre team up, all with different motives, to try and catch T-Bag, only to be swindled into a trap.  I thought it was a nifty set up that T-Bag pulled off, but they sure didn’t seem too concerned about the cops barging in on them.  And Bellick winds up with a bullet in his leg, preventing him from getting away.  Apparently the Panamanian police didn’t see the group of fugitives leaving the crime scene.

Alas, Bellick is behind bars again…only this time in a Panama prison.

T-Bag didn’t slip away for long, and ends up in a showdown with Michael.  There were plenty of great T-Bag quotes that I found funny…..the quip about getting his legs tattooed was up there with the Sawyer line about Nikki in Lost.  

Linc manages to get beat by Mahone, leaving an interesting setup for the final episode of Season 2.  It’ll be interesting to see if Mahone makes a break for it in Michael’s boat or not.  I was glad that they set up Mahone as still caring about his family back home.  He really is a good character, no matter how bad he has turned out.

I also almost forgot about Kellerman….I’m surprised he didn’t bite the bullet, literally, this time around.  I think his fate is sealed, considering he’s making his way to the Grey’s spinoff.  I’m glad to see he is helping Sara out by testifying to her claims about the conspiracy….If he follows through with it…..That’s another question.

So tonight has a couple of decent offerings….On another note, I really miss weekly installments of Heroes.

Prison Break-“Fin del Camino”- Sara is apparently already on trial, and I have the feeling she’ll be placed into prison…An interesting premise would be to see how she gets out, and how/if Michael would be able to help in any way.  Michael is also on the lookout for T-Bag.  It’s clear he’s not happy that he got him out, and he seems to feel responsible for all his mayhem.  I’d be surprised if T-Bag was caught,killed, or anywhere in between, considering he’s a highlight of the show…even though he’s crazy.  Anything’s better than Haywire, in my opinion.

24-8:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.-I’m hearing there’s yet another mole in CTU….I would think it’d be way too obvious if it was the new leader of field ops, whose name I’m blanking on, or Nadia (who hasn’t done ANYTHING, so it shouldn’t be her).  I think it’d be a huge surprise if Buchanan was a mole, but considering he’s one of my favorite characters, I’d hope not.  We may not even find out tonight….I’m thinking accusations will fly though.  I’m wondering what choices the Vice-President makes tonight too…..We’ll see.

::sigh::  No Heroes……At least The Office returns next week.  That’s a relief.

Tonight is somewhat back to form, considering Prison Break is back on.

Prison Break- Last we saw, wasn’t President Reynolds stepping down as President?  Seems like it’s been awhile since it was on, but I think it was a mere 2 weeks ago.  I hear Sara may turn herself in to help Michael and Lincoln….Say it isn’t so!

24- Tonight should be a highly action-packed episode, as the Russian contingent attempts to launch a drone carrying one of the nuclear suitcases….of course, who knows what will happen with that eerily suspicious vice-president at the helm.  I’ll catch this one tomorrow night, so no spoilers for me!

Geez….I really miss Heroes!

Grey’s Anatomy Spinoff Updates

leave a comment »

So apparently it’s the week where everybody decides they want in on the Grey’s Anatomy spinoff.Wasn’t it just like a week ago they were talking about Taye Diggs being on it….. Now there’s a boatload of people aboard the project.

I don’t know about everyone else who watched Prison Break, but I think his casting in this pilot seals his fate as Kellerman.  Just a guess…I have no confirmation of that.

Somehow, I think this show will be doing just fine……it’s too bad they’ve decide to go the CSI route with it.  Hopefully this is the one and only spinoff it gets.

Monday TV Preview

with 3 comments

I apologize for the lack of a Sunday Night TV Preview…There was The Amazing Race, which was entertaining, yet disappointing who came in last….Apparently while sitting at those tasks for hours when they are confused, even if the clue tells them that spelling counts, they never think to double check at least once. How did Rob or Amber not check “The Phillipines”….they deserved to be eliminated if they didn’t catch that. Battlestar is still on the Tivo….it wasn’t all that exciting while I was watching, but I was pretty distracted while searching for apartments online…..Anyway, let’s get to it!

24-At least I’m forgetting what’s in the previews, because they always seem to spoil a lot. Last we saw, wasn’t that one Russian guard shot before he could talk to CTU? I think we get a visit to the ex-Mrs. Logan tonight. Other than that, should be an entertaining hour….as always!

Prison Break– On a break…no new episode this week!

The Riches– I saw a preview for this one, and never got a chance to watch the pilot online. Still, I’m intrigued. It’s not like I need another TV show to watch, do I? Sure….there’s always room.

Here’s a description of the pilot, courtesy of Zap2it

This new FX dramedy, created by playwright Dmitry Lipkin, follows the exploits of Wayne (actor/comedian Eddie Izzard) and Dahlia (Minnie Driver, “Will & Grace”) Malloy and their children Cael (Noel Fisher), Dehliah (Shannon Woodward) and Sam (Aidan Mitchell). The Malloys are a family of gypsy travelers, conning unsuspecting “buffers” (their term for ordinary, law-abiding citizens) out of money while driving the country in their beat-up RV. But when their RV runs a car off the road — killing its occupants — Wayne senses a golden opportunity; soon, the Malloys adopt the persona of the deceased couple (attorney Doug Rich and his wife Cherien), move with the kids into a fancy gated community and start a con like none they’ve ever pulled.

That’s it folks…..at least March Madness should fill some of the voids of this current repeat and showless time!  I just realized, no Survivor this week…or next!  What to do?!

Prison Break 2.19- “Sweet Caroline” Recap

with one comment

I’m starting to think my hunch about the end of this show being right. That said, it seems like they always find some way to extend it that much longer.

What the heck was up with T-Bag feeling the need to go around the back to get his luggage? Couldn’t he have waited like two minutes to get his bag? It sure didn’t seem like Bellick even had a clue he was there…..(He was talking to some lady at the baggage claim, I assume showing a picture of Sucre or T-Bag….Who knows…I can’t remember).

Instead, he goes around back, and still manages not to get the bag.

I thought for sure Maricruz had bolted when Sucre came back with those cherries….Actually, I forgot that Bellick was even on the lookout, so it was nice to see he found one of the guys….Where did he get the Tazer gun too?

And I’m sorry, but Bill Kim has to be the most annoying character on television right now. Can’t he ever realize that there are people over him that are more important. I don’t know if it’s just some personal grudge I hold against the actor that plays him (he is the guy with the snakeskin pants in Fast and the Furious, is he not?)…….But he just irks me. I really wished that as Michael left and Kim was there that he gave him a punch back.

I was totally expecting a torture scene, instead of that beatdown….Guess I’ve been watching too much 24 lately.

I wish Sara wouldn’t have fallen for the bait from Mahone. They sure did buddy up quick, but in the end I look at it as they were both just trying to work the other one over until one or the other got what they wanted….I didn’t buy it for a second…though, Mahone really looks stupid by letting her get his gun that easily….

I hope they wrap this up…now that President Reynolds stepped down, I’m not really sure what to think. Michael said they only had one thing left to do, and that’s disappear….I’m starting to think that’s what this show will be doing pretty soon too. Too bad….At least I’ll always have those Season 1 DVDs to tide me over…..

That was some good television.

Monday TV Preview

leave a comment »

So it’s another busy night in TV-land….probably the last busy Monday for awhile now….

Here we go.

Prison Break– I’m thinking we’ll see what happens with Kellerman and the President.  I also sense a looming showdown between Michael and said President.  She hasn’t shown her face on the show since season 1, so it’ll be interesting to see if she still has the same edge to her character.  I wouldn’t mind a little more interaction between Sara and Michael….seems like they’ve hardly spoken since the sweeps episode on the train.

24-It’ll be interesting to see where this one heads, after that attempt on the life of the President.  I think he’ll survive, but I’m sensing Hassad will turn evil in the coming episodes…The guy has literally done nothing since the beginning of the season….same goes for the girl at CTU….I don’t remember her name….Oh…probably because she does nothing but tell people she can’t log in or the servers are screwed up.

Heroes– My fave of the night….I hear there’s a new hero coming in. I won’t reveal now, but I’m pretty sure I know her powers, and if you’ve been reading most of the articles about the show, they probably already revealed it at some point.  Linderman should also finally pop up.  At least one thing’s for sure.  Peter will be in this episode…and Hiro better find the stinkin’ sword already!   Don’t miss the Spiderman 3 preview during (or probably after) the show.

Look for recaps after the shows.
