Quotes

Michael Scofield: I'm sorry, Linc. I should have come to you. I should've asked for your help when Poseidon offered me the deal. I blew it. At the time, I thought if I dealt with it myself, the pain would only be mine. But instead I opened this Pandora's box. I wanted to make it better, but I only made it worse for everyone. And somewhere in there... I became a ghost.

Pacing is fast enough to forget the weaknesses
21 June 2017 | by lorddnarbsySee all my reviews

I like the 'city is a prison approach' but nothing really memorable happens in this episode. The dialogue that has been written for these characters is so poor, that you don't feel anything when they try to be emotional. This show is spoon feeding the audience the information though forced dialogue, because apparently we can't think and make connections for ourselves. Fortunately, the pacing is fast enough, so you don't dwell on these shortcomings.

It's a shame that the prison plot was resolved so quickly because now they rehash the overused conspiracy plot lines which are the far less interesting aspects of the show in my opinion.

On a side note: please develop your characters more, Scheuring. Don't use the old familiar ones on the sidelines where don't actual contribute much to the plot and use new faces which you don't give any development (because that screen time is given to the familiar faces; T-Bag, C-Note etc.) If you develop your characters more, than we actually might give a sh*t when someone gets killed of. There all completely forgettable, dull and bland now.

But to end on a positive note, the action and pacing keeps me interested and I will tune in next time.
