User Reviews

One of the best shows of the series.
15 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They saved one of the most humorous shows for the last, as we get an episode that is filled with laughter from the beginning to the end. This show was a pleasant surprise and a big reason that the series ran for another year.

It begins with escapes from other prison camps and Burkhalter believes that there is a 'safe house' where prisoners are being taken out of the country. He warns Klink that his camp maybe next on the list of escapes. With the help from Hogan, Klink hatches a scheme where he will let prisoners escape and that will lead him to the safe-house. So Klink, along with Schultz, goes through some funny activities in order for the prisoners to feel comfortable enough to escape. And when Klink decides he will be a hostage for the escaping prisoners, it will lead to only more laughs.

An enjoyable episode that was a laugh from beginning to end. A nice way to end season five with a show that is witty and memorable. Good watch.
