24 - Season 1, 11:00 P.M.-12:00 A.M. Sorry to admit it, but I lost interest in 24 near the beginning of last season, and have been unable to get back into it since. That being said, the show has had some great seasons, and though people debate which one is their favorite, none for me have ever outdone the thrilling first season, and its thrilling conclusion. Spoiler alert The death of Jack's wife (followed by the now infamous silent countdown clock, reserved for only the most solemn of '24' events) was simply the most unexpected, surprising and fantastic ending that I could have possibly fathomed. Unlike other shows, this shocking event also taught us that important people actually die in 24, which made future seasons all the more exciting. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Season 2, Becoming (1 and 2) I knew I wanted to put a Buffy finale on this list, and I had a difficult time choosing between Season 2 (the one I ultimately selected) and Season 3 (because Graduation was pretty awesome too...). However, I decided that nothing topped the delving into Angel's past and Buffy's realizing that she would have to kill him (Angelus). Then throw in that Angel's soul gets restored after all, but Buffy still had to send him to Hell...you know, to save the world (as Angel's blood is the only thing that will do the trick). Man oh Man, talk about tragedy. This was definitely Buffy at its finest... Alias - Season 1, Almost Thirty Years Episode after episode of Alias 's first season would conclude with a giant cliffhanger that made you go crazy waiting for the next week to arrive. So, it shouldn't be surprising that nothing outdid the Season 1 Finale's cliffhanger. Spoiler Alert The giant Rambaldi device is destroyed by Sydney, simultaneously releasing a ton of water. While Sydney manages to get through a closing door and escape the tidal wave, Vaughn is seemingly left to drown. However, most importantly, Sydney finally comes face to face with "The Man" and her season ending words are..."Mom?" (who mind you, was supposed to be dead; thus, Mom is not only not dead, but alive and evil). Friends (1994) - Season 4, The One with Ross's Wedding (1 and 2) Since our finale list has been heavy on the dramas, it's only fair to recognize a comedy finale. Friends had a few great season finales (also loved Season 5's One in Vegas), but I am especially partial to this one, as it also happened to be the first episode that I ever watched of the series (what a great way to start)! This episode was a comedy of errors in relation to all things Ross's wedding, culminating in his marriage-ruining "Rachel" slip at the altar. However, I also loved this finale as it was the beginning of the Chandler/Monica pairing, which provided great new direction for the comedy in its later seasons. Prison Break - Season 1, Flight Like 24 , Prison Break for me was a show that couldn't maintain the excitement of its earlier seasons. Nothing outdid the show's first season (in my opinion), which you might have guessed, climaxed when the guys actually achieved the show's title and broke out of prison ! We had some serious violence in this episode; I will never forget T-Bag's hand getting hacked off. Other huge revelations: Sarah ODing, Steadman's alive!, the President gets assassinated and the guys don't catch their plane, thereby setting up Season 2. What have been your favorite season finales?
The two-hour Prison Break finale is just right there--this Friday already?--and there's still a lot of questions raised, especially with the episode that aired last week. Lincoln's shot, Sara's in captivity, and Michael's got to choose between the two. And we all know the finale won't give happy endings to at least two people. So, what exactly? I fear I don't have answers, but there are some clues as to what might happen. Which means this--the next paragraphs contain spoilers. Consider that a warning. Okay. Surely you've heard about some details that SpoilerTV leaked out--that Michael will die. Apparently, the flash-forward last scene in the finale will see Linc, Sucre, Mahone, Sara and her kid visiting Michael's grave. Apparently, the events surrounding the death will be expanded in the extra two episodes that will be released on DVD. Apparently, he decided to sacrifice himself to save Sara, because he figured he'll die anyway, with him having a tumor and all. That sounds pretty valid, but I thought, they can't just give this one up that easily, right? The only thing I can definitely vouch for is that there will be more than one death in the finale. E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos leaked that there'll be two male deaths, and two females will be taken hostage. She also says a female character will bite the dust. (Speculation alert: Christina?) Add to that the character who'll take a bullet to the chest (Linc?), the character who returns to Fox River, and the character who ends up in an electric chair, and we have more questions all of a sudden. Perhaps the big question, especially for MiSa fans, is this: are they going to have a happy ending? I thought they would, but suddenly everything's up in the air. "We literally cried tears of joy at the present-day ending of Prison Break," Dos Santos spilled in her column. "The future ending of Prison Break, on the other hand, brought a different kind of tears. There's quite some time between the present and future endings, so technically, Michael and Sara do have a happy ending." And they say that time gap is roughly four years. Hrmmm. If she's referring to a different Michael--will the kid really be called Michael?--then you can imply what I'm thinking here. Ahh, the heck, let's just watch it this Friday. Source Here

Former Prison Break star Lane Garrison has been released on parole, E! reports. The actor was released from the California Correctional Institute in Tehachapi, Calif., Wednesday. He began serving a 40-month term in November 2007 after pleading guilty to vehicular manslaughter and two misdemeanor alcohol-related charges stemming from a 2006 car crash. The accident killed a 17-year-old boy and injured a 15-year-old girl. Garrison, who was in a substance abuse treatment program in prison and served as a peer mentor to inmates, earned enough good-behavior credits to warrant an early release, according to Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Garrison, 28, will now enter an in-patient rehabilitation center to shorten his probation. Last week, Garrison agreed to a financial settlement with the families of the victims. Source Here

* Iron Man: Armored Adventures (7 pm/ET Nicktoons) This new cartoon based on the Marvel Comics superhero focuses on the adolescent years of Tony Stark. It tweaks some details of Iron Man's history by having Tony create his famous suit of armor and become Iron Man as a teenager, not as an adult. In the first two episodes, which air back-to-back tonight, Tony faces a personal tragedy and transforms into Iron Man for the first time. While trying to unravel some mysteries, he quickly learns there is corruption he needs to battle - as only Iron Man can. * Prison Break (8 pm/ET Fox) Hiring a sniper to shoot one of your own sons? That's mommy-dearest behavior for sure, and Christina's "security" guys will go after both Lincoln and Michael tonight. But with a handful of episodes left to go, our guys should live to fight another day. Against each other. Linc, T-Bag and Self are working for Pad Man, while Michael and Sara are not. As for Pad Man, he might be suddenly vulnerable, but that doesn't make him any less vicious. And he'll be on his way to Miami, too. * Ghost Whisperer (8 pm/ET CBS) In soap operas, people are never quite dead and characters are routinely brought back to life, so the soap actors sudsing it up in this episode should feel right at home with Whisperer's premise. Tonight a ghost haunts a soap cast that's filming scenes in Grandview. Among the guest stars appearing are soap vets Thad Luckinbill, Amelia Heinle and Lesli Kay. * Hatching Pete (8 pm/ET Disney Channel ) Disney stars Jason Dolley (Cory in the House), Mitchel Musso (Hannah Montana) and Tiffany Thornton (Sonny with a Chance) team up for this good-natured comedy, in which shy, overlooked Pete Ivey (Dolley) becomes a high-school sensation when he dons a chicken costume. Pete temporarily steps in for his gregarious friend, Cleatus (Musso), as the school's official sports mascot when Cleatus suffers an allergic reaction. The fowl dress awakens a dormant, natural performer in Pete, and everyone falls in love with the Chicken. But, alas, everyone thinks Cleatus is still inside - and he's more than happy to take the credit. * Numb3rs (10 pm/ET CBS) Charlie's mathematical genius is responsible for many FBI cases being solved and for the saving of countless lives. But even a genius occasionally misses the mark. Tonight Charlie's calculations are a bit off in a case involving a series of home invasions, and they have a devastating effect. Don suffers a near-fatal attack during a raid, due in large part to his brother's error. But is Charlie to blame? Source Here
Slowly, ever so slowly, we're getting a slightly better idea of what exactly Christina Scofield is up to. Then again, I blame the four month gap for my confused look which watching Prison Break's return last week--I think I did a handful of readings after the episode aired just to get back in the loop. So we're still out for the Scylla, then. Or something else--control of the Company? Again, I blame my attention span. Now that she's in the picture, everything's been thrown into disarray. Linc's suddenly a little confused as to what he should exactly do--follow the General and recover the Scylla so he can be free, or follow his "mother" (I'm considering his opinion of her, by the way) and lay low until things get swinging and he can be free. Mahone's a little torn in the middle too. Self and T-Bag are, well, not so. Perhaps a little surprised, but they're the guys who want a cut no matter what. I should get used to that idea again. And then mother wants son killed. Ahhh, the problem with knowing too much. Here's a spoiler for you: Lincoln won't die in tonight's episode of Prison Break. Don't believe all that rhetoric about a sniper pointed at him, a clean shot being reported, and someone going for the kill. I'm reading the episode description and it suggests otherwise. (And then there's the photo up there. See?) I don't know how they'll try getting out of it, but ultimately Linc and Michael will meet up and confront each other about what exactly they should do with Scylla. (It also means Michael will get to Miami without more problems, after last week's hitchhike from hell.) The time table was, according to Christina, two days. Tonight, those two days finally happen, and everything gets swinging--all those automatic weapons and fake IDs, making her much more of a bad ass than we initially thought. The General's bound to make a flub, and someone is, obviously, bound to die. And then there's the weird bit--T-Bag and the Indian embassy. I'm expecting it gets passed over when the two days pass. Prison Break returns tonight from 8pm on Fox. Source Here
