Prison Break

I just finished watching season 1 and season 2 of Prison Break. I never thought I'd love this TV series. What is so interesting about breaking out of prison anyway, right? But because friends has been telling me its good and I also read it in some blogs, I decided to download it from the internet. After watching the first episode, I am hooked!

It took me 3.5 days to download all 44 episodes and has been hooked up on watching 6-8 episodes a day! I went to work looking like a zombie for 3 days in a row just because of Prison Break. Can't wait for season 3 to begin!

The Cast:

MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Wentworth Miller) is a desperate man in a desperate situation. His brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Dominic Purcell), is on death row and scheduled to die in a few months for an assassination Michael is convinced Lincoln did not commit. With no other options and time winding down, Michael held up a bank to get himself incarcerated alongside his brother in Fox River State Penitentiary. Once he's inside, Michael - a structural engineer with the blueprints for the prison - begins to execute an elaborate plan to break out Lincoln and prove him innocent of this sensational murder.

With the help of his cellmate, SUCRE (Amaury Nolasco), Michael begins to align himself with a disparate group of prisoners, including former mob boss JOHN ABRUZZI (Peter Stormare) and CHARLES WESTMORELAND (Muse Watson), a man some believe to be the infamous skyjacker D.B. Cooper. On the outside Michael has only one ally, his defense attorney and longtime friend, VERONICA DONOVAN (Robin Tunney) - who also happens to be Lincoln's former girlfriend. Meanwhile, Lincoln's 15-year-old son, LJ (Marshall Allman), is now adrift without his uncle Michael's positive influence in his life.

Rounding out the cast are DR. SARA TANCREDI (Sarah Wayne Callies), whom Michael ends up visiting in the prison infirmary more than he should; senior correctional officer BELLICK (Wade Williams), who is determined to keep a close eye on his new prisoner, and the powerful WARDEN POPE (Stacy Keach), who forges a close, almost father-son relationship with the new convict.

PRISON BREAK combines the hope of "The Shawshank Redemption," the camaraderie of "The Longest Yard" and the tense procedure and spectacle of "The Great Escape." This intriguing new series will reveal additional pieces of the puzzle each week as Michael carries out his daring plan to mastermind the ultimate prison break - and solve the far-reaching national-scale conspiracy that landed his brother there in the first place.

I did too, for only two (2) days while I was in the Philippines. Been waiting for the Season 3.

Believe me, I finished watching the season 1 in 14 hours ata, non stop yan ha.

i haven't seen season 2 :(. ang bagal kasi ng husband ko. hindi pa nga niya tapos yung season 1 eh. i read it nalang sa internet. how did you download it? was it free?

JO said...

Hi Raquel,
More than 14 hours ka siguro, kasi season 1 have 22 episodes eh.

Hi May,
Yes, you can download it for free, though it will take you a lot of time. For me, I paid $10 for 1 month downloading, about 100GB [max yata]. I'll bring you a copy of season 2 if you like. Just email [darcel260 AT yahoo DOT ca] me your mailing add and I'll mail you the CDs once I get to Manila.

Prison Break is so popular here but I still haven't watched a single episode. I guess I'll have to join the bandwagon and get a feel of what the hype is all about :)

hi jo! i watched it for three nights lang... actually, on the third night, season2 ep20-21 nalang, hehe.

i didn't think i would like it too but i did! I am now an official Wentworth Miller lover! the role suits him well. Ano ba namang mga mata yun?! para akong natutunaw! ok, i digress, puro wentworth nalang instead of gushing about prison break. pero really i can't wait for season 3! :)

JO said...

Hi Junnie,
We don't check pirated CDs here... don't know lang sa pinas... thanks for the heads-up.

Hi Liz,
I will bring you a copy, if you want to... see you soon.

Hi Melissa [AnP],

Hi Verns,
I didn't like Miller in season 1, I guess its because of his body tattoos... medyo turn off kasi ako sa mga tattoos eh. Pero once he started to wear civilian clothes, I like him na. ",)

Hi Gracita,
Hehehe... buti na lang at hindi lang ako yun nagpupuyat para panoorin ang PB.

may said...

magkikita ba kayo ni kuya (junnie)? give it to him nalang para hindi ka na gumastos. :)

Raquel said...

I think you were right, Jo. Pinanood namin May 1 (Labor Day) sa pinas from 11am to 2am ata, tapos tinapos namin kinabukasan. Btw, downloaded from youtube namin nakuha ang PB.

JO said...

Hi May,
Hopefully magkita kami ni Junnie...

Hi Raquel,
Ang galing din ng youtube no? kaya lang i find the quality very poor. pero puwede na din pagtiyagaan.
