Storyline

An innocent man is framed for the homicide of the Vice President's brother and scheduled to be executed at a super-max penitentiary, thus it's up to his younger brother to save him with his genius scheme: install himself in the same prison by holding up a bank and, as the final month ticks away, launch the escape plan step-by-step to break the both of them out, with his full-body tattoo acting as his guide; a tattoo which hides the layout of the prison facility and necessary clues vital to the escape.

Trivia

It was originally between Johnny Messner & Eric Dane for the role of ''Lincoln Burrows'' in Prison Break, Fox couldn't decide between them and they went with Dominic Purcell instead. See more »

Goofs

The two brothers and the other convicts are all going for the D.B. Cooper's five million, which was stolen several decades ago. There are design changes in the US Dollar bills so how are they going to use the buried five million? While there have been several design changes to US currency, this does not mean the money cannot be used. It is still considered legal tender. However, money taken in the D.B. Cooper heist just showing up all of a sudden in circulation would be a little eye-brow raising. See more »

Quotes

User Reviews

This looks like a show that will be a hit!
29 August 2005 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I have been seeing so many advertisements for this show and I decided to check it out and it's surprisingly good! The acting is well done and everything else. The show is about a guy named Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) who gets arrested and framed for a crime that he didn't commit and now his brother, Michael (Wennworth Miller) installs himself in prison for one reason, to get his brother out of jail! FOX had better not cancel this one! Because I'm tired of the FOX network canceling all these other good shows that have potential and they put them on nights where they can't win and they have way too many reality shows! Plus all the good shows that FOX cancels last for 1 or 2 seasons like "Tru Calling", "Dark Angel", "Fastlane" just to name a few. But hopefully this show might last with all the good reviews from all the newspapers and magazines.

User Rating: 10/10

BOTTOM LINE: FOX SHOULD HOLD ON TO THIS ONE!
