Prison Break (2005)
Great Series That Beats Other Series Hands Down
During the popularity of Lost suddenly TV networks started to make shows with Lost type elements. These shows such as Invasion, Threshold and Surface were quickly produced and sold to UK TV networks who fought over them Channel 4, Sky One and ITV 1 got all of them between them. People were wondering what Channel Five would bring to the table. Everyone was surprised that Channel Five got Prison Break, an action series set in a prison, instead of another Lost knock off or made a British sci-fi series of there own. But soon the lost knock offs were being cancelled and Channel 4's ratings for Lost were dropping. Meanwhile Prison Break offered viewers something new to the Lost knock offs and was doing so great in the ratings in the U.S that there was talk of a 2nd and 3rd season.
Prison Break is an action packed series that requires its viewers to suspend disbelieve. If you ignore the gleaming plot errors take the series as it is you won't be disappointed. Each episode of Prison Break ends with a cliff hanger that makes you gag for More.
So it looks like Channel Five got the last laugh. This show is way better than Lost.
The O.C. (2003)
The O.C. rocks unfortunately C4 does not
I only watched this show because channel 4 took Smallville off for Big Brother and I saw the trailer for The O.C. which went like this,
"Heres the Story, kid from the other side of the tracks gets taken in by this understanding lawyer who's living in the O.C orange county where the beautiful people live. He starts to hang with lawyers geeky son who starts to live a little. He flirts with girl next door with leads to a fight with her rich boyfriend, did i mention this is where the beautiful people live. The O.C watch cause you know its going to make Dawsons Creek look like kindergarten.
I had nothing better to do and i thought the lawyer was a mafia lawyer and he need the kid for a job (sorry but i must have miss interpretation the trailer) and i was pleasantly surprised it was like Smallvile but with no supernatural and Sci-fi story lines. It's got me hooked i was hopping to watch it all the way through but i don't have sky and c4 took it of for big brother and with no Smallville no new friends am : totally board. C4 showed enterprise and stargate together and now there's jack all on.
Watch the o.c not big brother. Please.
