Season 1 - Episode 6

Since Scofield's transfer was cancelled, the woman in Montana tells Kellerman to take care of Burrows quickly. He has an informant call an inmate in Fox River to kill Lincoln. The only form of identification of the inmate is an elastic bracelet. Veronica (Robin Tunney) avoids Nick Savrinn, until she realises that he is trying to help her all along, when he hears that the anonymous phone call to arrest Lincoln came from Washington D.C. Meanwhile, Michael (Wentworth Miller) realizes that to complete a digging job inside the walls to some pipes, he needs to spend a good block of time there, which has been proving difficult as he has to keep coming back to his cell to make count. After explaining this to Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), he is told that the only time count doesn't take place is during a lockdown. Michael manages to disable the prison's air conditioning. T-Bag (Robert Knepper) returns from the infirmary, where he is given a new cell mate, Seth. Since the A/C is off, the inmates suffer in the heat, leading T-Bag to start a fight with Geary, who then initiates a lockdown while some of the prisoners are out of their cells. The prisoners riot and break into the prison cell control room, in which T-Bag opens all the cells and then finds a set of keys, giving him and the rioters access to the entire prison. When news of the riot reaches the sick bay, the prisoners there also riot. After taking out the guard, they trap Dr. Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies) in the adjacent room. Michael uses a tracing of a devil from his tattoo to provide the coordinates (calculated using Hooke's law, also referred in this episode as hooker's law) needed to collapse part of the wall. This is vital to his escape plan as the wall prevents the team from entering a pipe that will take them to the infirmary. Meanwhile, after Lincoln is ambushed by T-Bag and his men, he holds new CO Bob Hudson hostage, who tries to escape, but T-Bag takes him to Michael's cell, where he learns of the escape pla

Season 1 - Episode 7

Turk misleads Lincoln, by sending him into a secluded area, where he attempts to kill him. However, after the two men struggle, Lincoln pushes Turk over the edge, where he soon dies. Back in Michael's and Sucre's cell, T-Bag is keeping an eye on CO Hudson, who knows of the escape plan. Abruzzi enters the hole and helps Sucre with breaking down the wall. Sucre, a devout Roman Catholic, struggles with drilling through a depiction of the devil. Also adding to the dilemma is the fact that gas pipes lie behind the wall, and that drilling in the wrong place may cause a fatal explosion. However, together they are eventually both able to drill strategically placed holes and manages to break it down to see the pipe on the other side. Sara is still trapped in the room, where the rioters almost break through, and try to set fire to it, where Michael manages to arrive through the vents and rescues her from them. However, the rioters follow her and Michael, who try to evade them. Sara asks how Michael knows about the pipes and he replies by saying that he has had PI duties to clean up toxic mold in the pipes. Soon, Michael is able to knock out one of the leading inmates and rush to an exit. However, when they arrive, a sniper, sent by Govorner Tancredi, who is adamant to do what it takes to rescue his daughter, aims at him. Michael quickly ducks as the pursuing inmates are fired at and Sara reunites with her father. Veronica and Nick arrive in Washington D. C. and receive the address from the placed phone call, a payphone. The payphone is next to the building of the company the Vice President uses. The phone rings and Veronica answers it. The caller tells them that they are dead. In a panic, Veronica and Nick run away from the payphone. Michael returns to gen-pop and reunites with Lincoln before heavily armed SORT teams invade the prison and force the inmates back to their cells. In Michael's cell, the team discuss what to do with Hudson. Michael, Lincoln and Sucre want to

Only back at the yacht, Michael notices Lincoln is gone and calls him- Alex Mahone tells him Linc is no cold-blooded killer, so he was overpowered and hand-cuffed, and the ransom is the yacht and the fortune he assumes to be in it, to be agreed in five minutes, now Mahone is even more wanted then the brothers. Kellerman's self-incriminating testimony and documents he brings get all charges against Sarah and Lincoln dropped, him arrested. Mahone calls Kim to fly over immediately. Alex calls his wife, to make her bring the kids for a holiday in her native Colombia, at Cartegena. Despite 30% blood-loss Fernado leaves hospital to report missing Bellick, who is already in jail and gets T-bag's company. Vendor Chaco gets Michael introduced to a local yacht owner to whom he suggests collecting the $100,000 reward on his head, then makes a better offer. Mahone called the police intending to frame the brothers for his intended murder on 'an Asian', but Michael refuses to hand over the money and Kim turns up early, with armed back-up; Mahone runs but is arrested. Kellerman knows the situation he is involved in, and expects to be assasined (unless we are towards a plot surprise,) so his transport to prison is arranged to get car trouble and a masked man shoots him. Chaco delivers to the brothers, who got away with the money and intended to run and never look back, a crummy boat with a priceless surprise: Sarah and the great news for Linc, with good hope for Michael. Just then Kim turns up, refuses the money, aims at Linc- and is shot by Sarah; the police arrives, chasing and trapping the trio- Michael takes the gun and pretends to take Sarah hostage, then lets himself be arrested and locked up in Sona. Malone calls his wife to forget he ever existed- from jail. T-bag expected to be released as agreed reward for baiting the brothers, but the man he hoped to bring him the good news says getting caught broke the deal.

Michael Scofield....GOAT. Let me rate each season for you 1: 12/10 2: 8/10 3: 9/10 4:10/10 People say that only the first season is good but that's only because the first season is so f****** amazing that it raises the standards too high! There are two regrets everyone in the world had. 1. Not watching Prison Break. 2. Watching Prison Break. After I finished the series their was literally a hole in my heart, do yourself a favour and watch the show

Best show I've ever seen and trust me I've seen a lot!

avatar

It's coming back for 10 more episodes

avatar

I can't wait for season 5! Michael Scofield is back at it again! I had a feeling there would be a new season after seeing Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell team up in The Flash as Captain Cold and Heatwave.

they failed on the season 5,they didnt show us how scofield survived the electricity blast.

Best show I've ever seen and trust me I've seen a lot!

The original concept of the show was excellent with a clear beginning and (possibly) end. It was filled with a strong cast and even better supporting cast with fast paced action and a big willingness to writes off characters even if they were enormously popular. Sadly, some terrible plot turns ruined the show and there was an entire brain tumor subplot that was a stupid element in the fourth and final season. They also lost a lot of fans by killing off a fan favorite only for the producers to write her back into the story later on. Conspiracy subplot went too far too. Series ending is a spit in the face until a revival series corrects it.

Season 1 tops every other season. I did keep watching though because it was immersive and I wanted to know what would happen next. I have yet to finish season 5, but I think the show should and could have ended with season 4.

First two seasons are a masterpiece.Others are pretty good though. 8/10 Micheal Scofield is a hero !

The Best Series If You Grew Up In The 2000s (Including Prison Break)

The O.C.

Sometimes a little bit of teen drama is exactly what I need. The story brings strong reminiscence of high school, filled with values about family and friendships. There’s always something positive about this show, maybe it’s because it’s always sunny in the Orange County. It brings the best feelings and no matter how many times I’ve watched it, I could do it all again. Its worthy successor is “Gossip Girl”, which was aired little bit later and I just love both shows so much.

Charmed

With all female leads, consisting of three sisters and a perfect balance between real life and fantasy, Charmed was easily one of my favorite things to watch. With such different personality types, everyone could always pick a favorite sister and with their witchcraft, everyone wanted a little bit of that magic for themselves.

Prison Break

The idea of breaking out of prison, or anything similar to it, hasn’t really been broadcasted on TV before. So, when Prison Break first aired, I think it’s safe to say that everyone was glued to the TV and just couldn’t wait to see what will the next episode hold. Even though the main characters are supposed to be hard-core criminals, they are extremely lovable. The show is very unpredictable, even if you expect the unexpected, you’ll still probably end up surprised.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
