Prison Break Returns

It doesn’t seem like 12 years ago Prison Break burst onto our screens.

It was a breath of fresh air. Something completely new and different. It was also one of the few TV programmes that was liked by both men and women in equal measure. Partly due to Wentworth Miller being a bit of “hot stuff” according to the girls in the office.

It ran for 4 years and was nominated for numerous awards.

In April 2016 shooting began on the 5th series. Both Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller are back, slightly surprising as Michael dies at the end of series 4. There will be plausible reasons to explain how he is still alive according to Fox

This is one of the few programmes I watched regularly. Even after meeting Mrs OMG and the boys, and then Buddy coming along. I would record on sky + to watch whilst doing the night feeds. This was at a time when online streaming wasn’t even heard of. 

Binge watching whole box sets was reserved for true geeks who bought the DVDs. This was only once the whole series had aired. When it was on you had to wait a week, even longer when those mid season breaks started being introduced.

 Season 5 airs on Monday April 10th at 9pm on Fox in the UK. So you’ve a week to binge watch series 1-4 on Netflix to refresh your memory on what happened.

I for one can’t wait. I just hope it’s as good.
