Amazing show to marathon... so addicting! There is no way to guess what is going to happen next because the twists are very unpredictable. Only flaw I can find is the number of episodes! I wish there were more seasons, but the show wrapped up nicely and is an all time favourite!

I do like this show. It is always fun to follow a really smart character and see him/her come up with the most ridiculous solutions to problems and find their way out of impossible situations (even though it obviously becomes just that, ridiculous, after a while since every episode/season always have to exceed the previous ones). I admit that the show does feel like a hamster wheel from time to time, it constantly follows the same model: one person in a "prison" other people breaking them out, more people getting involved, someone holding loved ones hostage and so on. But I have to give it to the writers they really find a way to opt the game at the same time. I don't want to spoil anything but season 3 really blew my mind at first, it was truly epic.

Character wise there are both ones that I love and ones I hate. I have nothing bad to say about Michael or Sara however Lincoln is a complete waste of everyones time if you ask me. I get that he is kind of necessary to the plot (without him a lot of the drama would never happen) but it is just so annoying to have a character who is so stupid, worthless and driven by anger. I'm sorry to say I really hate the actors acting too. I always enjoy it when a tv-show introduces new characters that you hate at first but then grow to love thought, and that is something that this one does a lot. At the end you have come to sympathize with most of the characters. How ever that is another thing that is a little bit annoying with the show most of the lead characters seem to think that they are actually doing good things, which truth be told definitely is not the case. I don't have a moral problem with loving characters who do bad things for good reasons, as long as they realize and you can clearly tell that they know they're doing bad things. This does not apply to Michael, but to Lincoln and some other of the "good guy's".

One of my favorite shows despite my 4.5 star rating. The 1st and 3rd season are unbelievably well written but the 2nd and 4th are kind of a bummer. You can watch the first season 5 times and still find something you missed the first 4 times. The concept of giving your life away to save someone you love by breaking them out of jail touches the heart a little. The writers did an amazing job and the execution was impressive. I recommend this show to anyone who likes action dramas.

I loved the beginning of the show and breaking out of prison because it brought something new to the table. however towards the end, when they ended up in another prison and all.. there was no need for all that... still though it was good it ended where it did because it was falling apart at the end.
