Dr. Sara Tancredi keeps giving Michael insulin shots using a regular syringe. Insulin syringes are several times thinner with short needles, which is why no diabetic prisoner in the USA goes to a prison doctor for his insulin shots 5-6 times a day. Moreover, she keeps giving him intramuscular shots of insulin instead of hypodermic. See more »
I wasn't sure how this show was going to be, it didn't look that interesting to me. I thought it looked more like a made for TV movie than an actual series. I decided to give it a chance and watched the premier last night. Let me just say that I'm addicted to the show after the 2 hour premier. This show was great, the acting, the characters, the setting, everything was done top notch. The show is filmed in and around Chicago, the prison they use for the setting was just closed a couple of years ago, it gives it a very authentic look. If you thought like I did(how can you make an entire series out of one prison break?), give it a try, you won't be disappointed. Besides, Fox made an entire season out of a 24 hour period.
