Prison Break Season Premiere

What an odd combination of both jumping the shark and becoming more interesting at the same time.

The shark jumping part, obviously, is that like, in general, we've seen the dude bust out of a prison before, so there's no real tension in all that. And the evil prison dudes thing has been done better in other movies and television shows. Beyond that having all these same guys in the same prison is beyond ridiculous. And, lest they head into Lost territory they better tell us something about The Company fairly fucking soon.

And yet... the scene with The Girl In The Bar is excellent. As are the last two minutes of the show. T-Bag becoming even more evil is also fun.

So... my verdict is the show could implode into awfulness very soon if they are not careful, but it has also demonstrated that it can return to greatness.

It's still up in the air.
