Product Description

After escaping from prison, Lincoln Burrows & Michael Scofield are on the run with one goal in mind â?" clear Lincolnâ??s name and uncover the hidden $5 million.

At the close of Prison Break's terrific season 1, the motley crew of convicts successfully accomplished the title. So naturally, season 2 becomes about the manhunt, where the best-laid plans of Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller)--concealed in his body tattoo with his escape route and hinted at throughout last season--get thrown for a loop. First, he and his convicted brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) are torn between fleeing the country and staying to clear Lincoln's name, which draws them deeper into a conspiracy that surpasses even the President of the United States (Patricia Wettig). Second, they're simultaneously pursued by Agent Kellerman (a terrific Paul Adelstein); prison warden Bellick (Wade Williams), now a bounty hunter; and a new pursuer: FBI agent Alexander Mahone (William Fichtner in all his bug-eyed glory), whose intelligence makes him a worthy foe to Michael, and whose pill-popping habit makes him just unstable enough to be interesting. There's also a new sinister lackey for the Company named Bill Kim (Reggie Lee, whose constant grimacing smile is a result of being instructed to act like a "customer service representative" while arranging for characters to be killed off, the actor reveals in commentary). Meanwhile, the other escapees scatter across the county, eluding the FBI as they try to reunite with their loved ones--Abruzzi (Peter Stormare), C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar), and Sucre (Amaury Nolasco)--or settle scores (in the case of T-Bag, played by Robert Knepper). But lest you think the series will split in 10 different directions, there's always the money hidden in Utah by fellow prisoner Westmoreland that will eventually lead them to cross paths again.

Season 2, taking place outside prison walls, doesn't have the claustrophobic tension of season 1; instead, it becomes one long Fugitive-esque chase, which lost interest every time it kept shifting to different characters' storylines. There are more baits-and-switches than you'd care to keep track of, and more than a little suspended disbelief. But the intriguing center of the drama will always be the way Michael's forced to think on his feet when his grand plans hit their snags, whereas in Fox River he was most assuredly in control (it also forces Miller's stoic acting to loosen up a little). Moreover, his unexpected feelings for Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), who was found overdosed in her apartment at the end of season 1, further complicates Michael's disappearance plans. The DVD includes several candid commentaries by cast members and show creators, and an Easter egg that alludes to the "death wall" (number of casualties) the show's writers kept in production offices. --Ellen A. Kim

Format: DVD
As the second season of Prison Break opens, things get moving along rather quickly. Michael (Wentworth Miller), Linc (Dominic Purcell), Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar), and John (Peter Stormare) have escaped from prison and are on the run. After going their seperate ways, shady FBI Agent Mahone (William Fichtner) arrives on the scene with one main intention: stop Michael and Linc from escaping the country. In the meantime, T-Bag (Robert Knepper) goes to some great lengths to get what he wants, and Captain Bellick (Wade Williams) is still hot on the brothers' trail. The conspiracy that was apparent in season one is even more farther reaching here, as revelations are made that will cost everyone involved dearly, and by the end of the season, not everyone that has been here since the beginning will still be standing. What makes Prison Break so good is that the show never relents from it's break neck pacing. This could easily be a bad thing, but the minds behind Prison Break manage to keep the constant flow stable enough so you never know what to expect next. Even with the major change of scenery for the main characters, the show stays more compelling than ever as it becomes a high octane game of cat and mouse. Undoubtedly one of (if not the) best shows on prime time network television today (and on Fox), Prison Break just keeps getting better, and by the end of the season finale, you'll be salivating for more.

I know the opinions about season 2 will be more mixed than season 1, but I personally believe that season 2 is just as exciting as 1. The only difference is that there's a change of scenery and a focus on some different characters. But I still find Prison Break to be one of the best shows on tv right now and just as compelling and heart-pounding as ever! Prison Break still manages to be intriguing, simple enough to follow, with great characters people really care about. In particular, Paul Adelstein (who plays Agent Kellerman) does a really fabulous job this season, whereas last season he was more of a minor character. And unlike Lost, this show actually manages to answer questions and move the plot along. This season has also held steady in the ratings unlike some other shows, which must mean that it's doing something right. As always, the biggest weakness is that it's as ludicrous as it was first season, but this is fiction. If I wanted reality, I'd watch a documentary. And I don't think it's really any more unrealistic than any other action drama on tv today. I give this season 5 stars and can't wait to see what the writers will cook up for season 3.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Gloria J. Brown on April 1, 2007
I am a PRISON BREAK die-hard. Monday nights are reserved for my favorite show PRISON BREAK. Season One was full of plotting and planning and ended in a victory break out. Season Two picked up on the most awesome adventure, with twists and turns. Every character brings a seperate life to make the show whole. Each episode leaves you in suspense and wanting Monday to get here quickly. The show is so well written that you can't help but stay glued to the TV for 60 minutes and anticipate "scenes from the next show" . Very few DVD's make it to my Home collection, but I own Season One and am anxiously awaiting the release of Season Two. This is definitely a show you will NOT want to miss!

The first question that I think many people want answered is whether the 2nd season is as good as the 1st. In my opinion it is not quite as "good" as season 1. One could tell that season 1 was worked out to the finest detail, every step of the way, it was simply a brilliantly crafted plot, filled with suspense and wondering what was going to happen next.

Season 2 is also very suspenseful, with some great twists inbetween. The characters are still very deep and convincing. But one cant't help but notice that the storyline sort of falls apart towards the last 3 or 4 episodes, where one got the feeling of an ingenious plot in season 1, season 2 had the effect of "well this is what happened, now it can go in any direction". What I'm actually trying to say is that season 2 did not quite play out in that same clever way in which season 1 did.

That being said, it was an a highly entertaining season(2), that will keep 1st time viewers on the edge of their seats the entire time. I highly recommend this box set, simply because even with the drawbacks, it is still my favourite tv series and I think die-hard fans will enjoy it immensely.

Hope this was useful.
Regards from South Africa!

Prison Break the best show i've ever watched. I'm such a huge fan and nothing would distract me on my Monday nights when Prison Break was on I turned the world off and enjoyed my show. I'm very pleased with this season and the writers do such an amazing job just when you think to yourself where is this going to go your just amazed at the outcome. The actors on this show are absolutely fantastic whether you love them or hate them. They all bring something to the table and each storyline is great. It's just very edge of your seat it drives you crazy i just hated waiting every week to watch the next episode. Michael Scofield aka Wentworth Miller is so amazing to watch because the guy is a genius and he knows how to get himself out of every situation and your always wondering what his plans are next. The writers did a wonderful job with the season finale i felt every emotion in one episode and was shocked at the end. I cannot wait for this season to come out on DVD and i can't wait for next fall for season 3 i'm already going through withdrawals. For anyone who has not watched this show i highly recommend watching both seasons you won't be disappointed i promise it's very addicting you won't stop.

Yeah, but you can't fast forward and HAVE to watch the entire episode K*VILLE to get to it. We hated the K*VILLE part so much, we just waited until PB Season 3 came out and started there. No help what so ever. Maybe just my DVD player, but I don't think so. Okay if you can let it run for an... Read More
