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.

Awesome!!!!
13 December 2019 | by M7mdAs3dSee all my reviews

My favorite TV-Series ever

S1 is the best season I've ever watched in my life

S2 is Amazing, Alex Mahone was definitely the star of the season

S3 is really Underrated, yeah maybe it wasn't necessary and they could've ended the story earlier but that doesn't mean it wasn't enjoyable

S4 is probably my least favorite season in the series

And I like to think of S5 as an additional mini-season
