Fast moving and exciting
12 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best Prison Break episodes for a while, probably the best so far in Season 3. It was fast moving, exciting, and ended with a classic Prison Break cliff-hanger at the end. With lots of action and events all packed into one episode, it did not disappoint.

From a critical perspective, there were some slightly strange, rather intangible moments, but it does remain to be a show which appeals to its viewers by being believable, unlike shows like Lost and Heroes.

This season has finally kicked into action and everyone will be disappointed after the next episode when there will be another long period of time before the next offering of the great TV series!
