5.0 out of 5 stars just as exciting as season 1, only with a change of scenery, June 15, 2007
This review is from: Prison Break: Season 2 (DVD)
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.

"And unlike Lost, this show actually manages to answer questions and move the plot along."

Oh c'mon Shelly, you know you love the continual mysterious patterns that surround the plot of LOST. If they answer the questions, they just create more as they go along. Don't worry they are only going to do three more seasons. Nice review!

Escape, I must admit that I quit watching Lost after the first season because I know from experience that JJ Abrams never answers any questions and drags things out (I used to be an Alias fan but gave that up too after 3 years of the Rambaldi nonsense and not getting ANY answers as to what was going on). So I guess it was my rational prejudice of Abrams I was thinking of when I wrote this review. *shrug*

Not that I hate all things Abrams - Felicity was a great show. If he ever does another straightforward relationship type drama I'll be there. But Alias and Lost, meh.

I know these comments are old, but you guys are wrong. Lost is incredible, and only gets better each season, or upon multiple viewings. Prison Break was also excellent, until Season 4 that is, then it got rather silly.

I never said Lost was a bad show but in general I find JJ Abrams' ways of making shows incredibly frustrating. He doesn't have a definite plan in mind and never answers the questions he poses in his shows till the very end and I just have not got the patience to watch till then.

I hated seasons 3 and 4 of Prison Break - never even watched them all the way through but what I saw of them were painful to sit through.
