    I know over 500 people that watched prison break and they want to see more of prison break. We want prison break back on fox. This series was excellent throughout the entire run, but they stumbled at the finish line. This is one show where killing off the main character actually did more harm than good. With all that they went through, dodging the constant barrage of bullets, the countless betrayals, and the endless pursuits, to have Michael undoing come in the form of amore

    I know over 500 people that watched prison break and they want to see more of prison break. We want prison break back on fox. We love the shows and i love then to because i like it when they were trying to break out the prison they showed team work. We wanted to know if you guys could make more shows please. You can't just stop the tv shows there. You can make them keep going like making them go back to prison but Michael could be on death row this time and Lincoln could break him out this time but make it harder for him to break him out. Please make more showsmoreless

    This series was excellent throughout the entire run, but they stumbled at the finish line. This is one show where killing off the main character actually did more harm than good. With all that they went through, dodging the constant barrage of bullets, the countless betrayals, and the endless pursuits, to have Michael undoing come in the form of a circuit box (although ironic, seeing as how Linc was the one originally suppose to die by electricity in a prison). Michael was much too smart to meet his end in such a manner, even under pressure, he was quick on his feet in far more dire circumstances to be bested by a fuse box. And the whole brain tumor angle should have been left in the past. I can understand Michael's sacrifice, but I think it should have been Sarah's freedom in exchange for his own scenario, instead of killing him off. Sometimes the less dramatic option is the most effective, and I think it would've been a better alternative for this series. I would've rather seen Michael standing next to the circuit box with that smug smile on his face while the FEDS arrested him, especially since they were hellbent on stopping him and they failed. They could have sent him back to Fox river, and ended with Linc coming to visit him with an escape plan, bringing the show full circle. Just would have made more sense IMO. Other than that, great show, ending just kinda hurt the overall product.moreless
  • even though the ending sucked it was for the best

    okay, ive read everyones review, and it did confuse me abit when i saw that at the end of episode 22 after seeing his grave (and one would think his death was down to the tumor) that it would have been because of that, but the episode after was not necessary at all, it didnt make sense to put teabag and gwetchin and then also the general all in the same prison, seems abit of a coinsidence, but after all of them signing the agreement in episode 22 and getting ammunity from all their charges, even though they probably had loads of cctv of all of them atleast killing someone, they still had to go and do something silly and release another episode where they have a video of sarah in a random warehouse killing christina.



    anyway I have also seen there are alot of people saying that michael is still alive, but i dont think that is the case at all seeing as there is a tombstone in the end of episode 22 where there is a 4 years on scene, so michael will not be coming back, however it does give the impression that because we didnt see what happened at the end of 23 but just a prison door with the lights off, it can be assumed that michael is still alive and the body in his tombstone is not of him, but lets not run to any assumptions, i think the ending should have just been left at episode 22, the 90 minute spin-off was not needed.
