Here, we’re shining a spotlight on ten of the worst offenders when it comes to great TV shows that got increasingly more frustrating as time went by. The shows that started off fantastic and eventually got lost in the smokescreen of their own wheel-spinning.
Five years after Fox's Prison Break wrapped up, Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows are finally reuniting. Well, the actors who played them are. We knew that Wentworth Miller was already lined up for a guest spot in The Flash, and today comes word that his Prison Break co-star Dominic Purcell is also set to appear in the Arrow spinoff.
Those of us who loved Prison Break now have one more reason to look forward to USA’s upcoming new buddy cop drama Common Law. Dominic Purcell (a.k.a. Lincoln Burrows) is set to guest star in the series.
A certain former Prison Break star is set to make an appearance on House this season. From what I hear, House could probably use someone with prison-breaking experience, however that’s not what Wentworth Miller will be up to when he appears on the show. Spoilers ahead!
Last week, Starz announced that they were moving forward with Season 2 of Spartacus: Blood and Sand and word is, a former Prison Break star may be up for the titular role.
It’s time to take a quick look back at my Summer TV viewing list. From Mad Men to Prison Break and even a little Dr. Who, I made good use of my lazier hours this summer and enjoyed most of what I watched.
And the guest-star list for the upcoming and highly anticipated fifth season of Dexter just got a little bit longer as it seems a former Prison Break star has been signed on to appear in the series.
While the third season of True Blood isn’t set to premiere on HBO until June 2010, it appears HBO is already building onto the cast of the series, bringing in a former Prison Break cast member to play someone’s long lost brother. Spoilers ahead!
Seriously, what does Hollywood have against hyphens? It’s Eight Legged Freaks all over again…
The plot and character story arcs sound way too complicated for me to jump in at the fourth season. That said, when I was researching the premise of this series, I found that it actually sounds like it turned out to be a pretty good show (I guess I should have listened to everyone who’s been raving about it).
When it comes to Fox’s fall schedule, I’m not sure what I’m more excited about. On one hand, they’ve got some new shows coming out this fall, including the new J.J. Abrams series, Fringe, and on the other hand, there are quite a few returning series that I’m looking forward to, including House, Bones and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Between their fall schedule, which includes the new J.J. Abrams series, Fringe and their midseason line-up, which not only includes the return of 24 (oh, Jack Bauer, how we’ve missed you!) but also the new Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse, the future’s looking bright for Fox.
I was overjoyed the other day to hear that Fox’s popular show Prison Break will get a full 22 episode season this fall. The Writer’s Strike put a cramp into the shows groove this year, and only 13 episodes aired. Season 3 was far too short, and there wasn’t a real season finale – both frustrating, and unsatisfying.
Sweaty convicts, deadly alliances, government conspiracies…sounds like the perfect antidote to mid-season blues. Like 24, the clock is ticking and the action is high on this tense thriller. The November cliffhanger left us feeling like anything can happen – and probably will -- and even a few episodes will help to feed our escapist fix.
The idea of a female version of Prison Break almost sounds like some bad, chauvinistic joke. What, instead of tattooing the escape route on her body, will she just stuff it all in her handbag? The minds behind Fox’s hit are taking it seriously, currently developing Prison Break: Cherry Hill, which will star a character named Molly who will be introduced on Prison Break this season.
