TCP#31: Prison Break

Welcome to the March 30th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes. I can't believe that it's going to be April soon! My apologies to my Couchers too for posting late. And this week's theme is Behind Bars. This week, we will feature movies or shows depicting any of the following situations: the lives of those behind bars or prisoners, how they ended up in prison in the first place, the sentence that they have served, the injustice and discrimination inside the prison walls, even the corruption that happens inside or the adventures and the chase that ensues when a prisoner decides to escape... I know you have seen a number of movies with this theme so I hope you can share them with us this week.

I am going to break out of my ordinary movie features and have decided to pick: Prison Break. This is a drama TV series which premiered on Fox. It was actually Hubby who told me all about it and ever since I watched it, I got hooked. It first came out in 2005 and was a hit back in 2006-2007. I think the series had four seasons. I enjoyed watching the first three seasons but found the last season dragging. Season 1 revolved around how Scofield intentionally got himself in prison in order to get his brother out and how he planned everything so he and his brother (along with six others) could escape the Fox River Penitentiary. Season 2 is about the Great Chase that ensues 8 hours after they escaped. The authorities are literally on their tails, tracking them down. Season 3 takes Scofield back in prison, this time inside Sona, a prison run by prisoners and is only guarded from the outside.

I just loved Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller). All I can say is that he is a genius! Who would have thought that his body tattoo is actually an escape plan? I also loved the characted of Sucre and of course, Lincoln Burrows and Sara Tancredi. It should be noted that while I enjoyed watching this series, I squirm at the sight of violence, coarse language and references to sex and drugs. As a parent, I of course wouldn't want my small kid to be exposed this kinds of shows.

So what's your movie for this week? Don't forget to enter your TCP entry's link URL in the MckLinky below:

THANK YOU for joining us this week on Tuesday Couch Potatoes. Our theme for April 6th is Easter/Spring Is Here. It could be any film that shows the tradition of Easter, or easter bunnies and egg hunts or it could be a Spring Movie, movies that came out during Spring season. Till next Tuesday Couchers! Take care and Happy TCP!
