User Reviews

simply a standard promo
2 July 2013 | by (Calumet, Mich.) – See all my reviews

The director/executive producer: "Once every few years a show comes along that is ground-breaking, that is thought-provoking, that is compelling, that has a great story but also makes you fffeel & care about these characters. So I think Prison Break you know is one of those shows. . . . It's the thinking-man's TV show." After starting off with that load of bull-oney, it's not so surprising that this isn't so much a behind-the-scenes short as simply a half-hour promotional piece. "There was heart." How many promos have I seen with that line?

They did go a little bit into how they cast the Prison Break series but their comments were more illuminating for how much they revealed about how differently the developers and actors saw the series than me. If you're expecting to actually learn how they shot these shows, as I had been, you'll be disappointed.

Several actors commented on how they didn't see what the writers were gonna have happen next, while I didn't tend to have that problem with the series myself.
