Saw an ad for it last night, it was touting that the law now has a mind equal to Michael's on the case. Now that they are 'prisonbroke' it'll be interesting to see how they deal with them as fugitives--particularly if the show extends to 3 or 4 seasons. I wonder if the whole Fox River setting will be abandoned completely.

Anybody know how Prison Break will run since it is starting so early? I didn't like such a big break last year, but if this runs through the spring I don't see how that can be avoided.

Looking forward to some new episodes of great television after a long summer of repeats and dumb reality shows. Hopefully this season does not disappoint.

I'm pretty sure they'll be using the same schedule, since it worked out pretty well for them last year. ABC is adopting this same type of schedule for Lost as well this year.

Looking forward to this, after watching the season one DVDs.

Hopefully, the writing is better this season since they know they have a full 22 episodes to fill, unlike last year. Alot of the episodes starting feeling like they were just stretching things out, which got annoying.

Maybe T-Bag will get caught and go back to Fox River. If not, I'm gonna miss the prison setting a little.

I had heard they were thinking of changing the title of the show to 'Prison Break: Manhunt!' this year, which would be kinda' cool (as well as more authentic since they're now done with the Prison Breakin' part of their adventure), but I guess they scrapped that idea. Too bad.

Catch it, you already know they broke out of prison. I started watching midway through the season, and want to get the dvd's to see what i missed. It is a good show, and at least watch Monday to see if you like it.

The season will take a break during the world series.

I agree-great show. However, it will help to know a little about the characters. I have to think they will do a brief "reprise" (I hope that's the word).

Not to mention one character in the group might spoil the outcome of a certain event in the tool shed during season 1....

William Fichtner is going to be a great addition to the ensemble cast. 21st can't come soon enough.

I do love this show - but the way they ended last season - ya know with them all running rampant in that field with the cops gaining on them - well I didn't know if they were going to get caught or what would happen - then I see the preview and it is all spoiled for me. Not that I didn't know they would get out or something - but I didn't know how they would get away (jumping a train). I really need to stop watching previews!

It's called Prison Break, not Breaking Out Of Prison. Prison Break works before and after. We can't call it Prison Broke can we????

You also need to stop posting spoilers for those of us who have managed to avoid the previews until now. (j/k)

I agree. He really showed some chops in a lead role in 'Invasion' last season, so it will be nice to watch him in what appears to be another good role here.

A possible spoiler re: Dr Tancredi

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Spoiler  
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Although she looked awfully 'blue' at the end of last season she's listed at imdb under season 2 episodes.


I liked the storyline with her and Michael and I don't know how the show would work without some sort of love interest for the main character. It's not like he's going to have time to meet someone else. Nonetheless the recap for last season says she overdosed-- which to me says dead.

Two words for ya': stomach pump. She'll be around to continue the smoldering, coy dance of forbidden love that she and Michael developed last season.

The definition of overdose most often used in law enforcement and the medical profession: "any time that medical attention is needed as a result of the ingestion of an illicit substance or OTC or prescription substance that has been taken recreationally."

Death can be a by-product of an overdose, but it isn't a requirement.

Close. The title of the season premiere is called "Manhunt".

What a great show this is. I can't wait for the premiere tonight and adding William Fichtner to the cast just puts it over the top for me. That's huge.


After this, that new show Vanished looks promising as well.

I think Fox is going to own Monday nights again, football or not.

As have I. I'm unsure how good this will be, but I'd like to give it a test run.

Looking forward to it, even though last year did start to drag, the one thing that made it intriguing was that there was a goal for the season (to break out) It'll be interesting to see where the show goes now that it's more of a "fugitive" show than an escape show. I suppose the possibilities are endless, the characters have all been well-developed, I figure it has the potential for 3 or 4 good seasons.
