Having watched a lot of '24' and 'Lost' we were introduced to Prison Break by friends as a good alternative.
We bought the first series on DVD and sat down to watch it.
I wouldn't say its bad, but its not that great either. The story lines are pretty daft and far fetched and you can't help but think that this genius who is trying to break his brother out of prison could have thought of something slightly less convoluted and infinitely more productive.
The writers have added twists and turns that dont really need to be there in my opinion.
The end result is something that I can't help watching saying "that's ridiculous".
That said, the acting is pretty good if you buy it you're unlikley to stop half way through and not bother seeing the end - but the acid test for me is am I rushing to the shops to buy the next series after I bought the first? 6 months after watching it I haven't yet .....
