I received an IM from a reader yesterday asking me where my review of the “lame Prison Break finale” (his words) was. I told him that it had been sitting in my drafts for about 4 days, I just couldn’t be bothered to finish it. I didn’t want to slap it together, like Paul T. Scheuring did with the script for this finale. I can’t remember them all now, but this episode had so many random elements thrown in, like men in a lab talking about Michael Schofield’s predisposition to escape, and the three main characters running from a murder that could quite easily have been explained as self-defence. They really seemed like they were pushed for time. After hyping it up all season I’ve decided that these guys don’t know how to tie things up properly while opening up a new chapter. What a disappointment. Anyway, there were a couple of things that were good. Michael taking the rap for a crime he didn’t commit was pretty good stuff. And the look of the prison he will be attempting to break out of next season seemed very different to Fox River. Unless he helped build it of course.
