One of the aspects that I always enjoyed about myself is that when there is a new big hit, big drama, I have to stop all life to watch this show, television series I always tend to simply ignore and shrug off the current TV trend. Shows like Lost, Heroes, and 24 I never got into, and to this day the only real television series I still enjoy watching are Law and Order and Star Trek TNG. This is based on a number of reasons, one being that I don't have time for television and two I enjoy watching movies much more than Television series. DVDs have no commercials. Another reason that I hate series like Lost is that you can't follow that shit if you miss one or two episodes. It isn't a TV show that I can enjoy without having seen every single episode because the storyline is just ridiculous. With shows like Star Trek and Law and Order each episode it's in own little mini movie that doesn't depend on other episodes, excluding the occasional two part stories. It makes these shows easier to watch and enjoy.
Now I can rant on and on why I hate Lost, but that isn't the point of this post. The point of this post is to say that I've found a series that actually hooked me into itself, and it's not a series like Law and Order it's a series like Lost that if you don't watch all the episodes you might not understand the entire story. The show that I really enjoy watching now is Prison Break, which started back in 2005. Now in it's 4th season I've really became a big fan of the show. One night about a month ago my roommate borrowed the entire season 1 DVD's from a friend of his and started watching them. It kind of became a nightly ritual for us to do our homework and then watch an episode. Soon though I was watching more episodes than he was, and in only six days I watched the entire first season. Then I was able to borrow the season 2 DVD's from another friend and those were watched in another 7 days. Then the second half of season 3, which is only 13 episodes, was online so I watched those in 2. Then all of what I missed of season 4 was online until now I am completely caught up with the story including tonight's brand new episode.
So yeah I kind of became a Prison Break freak. I don't know I really like the show. All of the complex planning that the main characters go through to achieve each seemingly impossible task is a lot of fun. Plus the emotional situations that all of the characters experience, especially the love between the main character Micheal and Sarah is incredible. Though this show isn't without it's flaws. I mean after 4 seasons of planning you would think that Micheal and his brother would eventually get caught or something would go wrong. The show does throw the brothers plenty of challenges but seriously every plan that they've done has succeeded one way or another. Which leads me to believe that this season is the final season, and personally I think it's gonna end with one of the brothers dead, but we'll see if that happens.
Needless to say I like the show a lot. Only two other shows that I can think of really enticed me into obssesively watching them. One was Survivor which I and my family ritually watched every Sunday for 4 seasons, and the other was Avatar the Last Airbender simply because I'm a nerd and it's the only Nicktoon to have any freaking closure.
So yeah Prison Break equals awesome go out and watch that shit.
