  • It’s puzzling that the return of Prison Break takes so little advantage of all that potential, and offers up a incarceration saga that is by turns mechanical, grim and overly convoluted. Show More

  • Now it must find a way to become more than a routine action drama pitting plucky good guys against amoral, robotic bad guys. It's got the characters who can do that, though, and it's also streamlined its story enough so even a new viewer can figure out what's going on from tonight's back-to-back premiere episodes.

  • Like any over-the-top, conspiracy-laced concept, "Prison Break" will only work if viewers are giddily enticed to jump aboard the Willing Suspension of Disbelief Express. Show More
