      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Prison Break's second phase branches its inaugural season's focused narrative into a series of tangents on the lam, which may lose the interest of some viewers but does maintain the series' propulsive momentum.

      Previous Ken Tucker Entertainment Weekly Michael and Lincoln are incidental to the action, which would be an interesting narrative approach were these subplots not so silly. Sep 25, 2018 Full Review Matthew Gilbert Boston Globe More than is the case on many shows, its biggest thrills are plot based, with the writers trying to trick us as they pull the characters in and out of impossible situations. Unlike the plot twists, the acting has never been particularly distinguished. Sep 25, 2018 Full Review Emily St. James Slant Magazine If the first season of Prison Break was a mostly enjoyable guilty pleasure, its second season has been, by turns, uninteresting, unbelievable and unwatchable. Sep 25, 2018 Full Review Tom Gliatto People Magazine Now the show itself seems dizzy, as if reeling from a sudden, liberating intake of fresh air. The first two episodes are hectic, wild and disorientingly daring, with a couple of real jolts. Sep 26, 2018 Full Review Scott D. Pierce Deseret News (Salt Lake City) Prison Break has clearly run out of creative gas. What was a darn good show in its first season has deteriorated badly in its second. The drop in quality has been so precipitous that I shudder to think what Season 3 will look like. Sep 25, 2018 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures A solid, tense drama. 3/5 Sep 25, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews Next
