OT - Prison Break is my dirty little secret

I am a grown-up (30), professional woman with a master’s degree. I am supposed to care about adult things like politics and world affairs (which I do to some extent). Or at least adult TV shows like Law and Order. I have never really cared about TV or celebrities, but since the first few minutes of the first episode, I have been completely obsessed with Prison Break. I see a lot of threads on bbs about Lost, Greys Anatomy, the OC, etc, but never PB, which makes me wonder if I am the only one…

I had all the episodes on our TiVo, but the TiVo crashed over Christmas and lost them, so I bought the 1st season on iTunes and put them on DH’s computer. He put them on my video iPod and I laughed and laughed. Who would watch TV on their iPod?

Turns out I would! (did, and will again!)

I am disappointed that they are going to do a 3rd season. I was hoping to be able to kick this obsession. Now my greatest worry is that Sara Wayne Callies won’t come back for the next season. Miller and Purcell are already tentatively on board, but no mention of Callies … And she’s pregnant in real life so ???

Isn’t there a genocide in Darfur right now? Aren’t we at war? Don’t I have my career to focus on? How can I possibly be so wrapped up in what happens on an eye candy show?

I saw on Youtube that many people actually download clips from the show and string them together into musical montages. I have not done such a thing yet, so I guess I am not as obsessed as I COULD be, lol (or maybe I just don’t know how to use the technology yet!)

Please tell me I’m not alone!

I love Prison Break, too! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

DH and I watch Prison Break too. I normally don’t care much for television but I have to say that Prison Break has delivered a lot more than I thought it would when I first heard about it.

BTW, there is an on going thread on Knitters Review devoted to Prison Break.

Count me in as a fan too! I’ve watched it from the beginning, although I did miss the big episode last year when they actually broke out!

I watched this week after not watching since the start of the season. We go out on Monday nights so haven’t watched it. So I was rather confused this week - what’s up with Mahone?? I’ve obviously missed a lot so I have no idea of what exactly he’s in trouble for?

OMG! I have been looking for SOMEONE who shares my obsession as much as me!

I have been such a die hard fan since day one…and Wentworth Miller is just drool worthy!

I even put my knitting down to drool over him. :roflhard:

Mahone is complicated…Im not sure how best to elaborate on him…

:?? Hes a brilliantly twisted genius, I think was DHs description.

I’d like to be the boys’ dirty little secret, that’s for sure!

I have PB joke to share with you! There is a legal exam writing company called Wentworth Miller’s Legal Exam Writing System. I am not making this up, and it has no relation to Mr. Hotpants.

DH is in law school and said, “I wonder if the first step in the system is to tattoo all the exam answers to your torso.”

Edited to say: apparently the guide was written by the actor’s father, so it’s not exactly no relation to Mr. Hotpants, just that he himself did not write it.

I love Prison Break too!!! :cheering: :cheering: :cheering:

I can’t believe they can squeeze another season out of it, but that’s fine with me!

:heart: :inlove: Wentworth Miller :inlove: :heart:

Nathalie!! You have to see that episode!! It was soooo good!

I think it’s amazing when you know what the outcome is going to be (obviously they’re going to break out of prison) but they still make it soooo suspenseful and tense and awesome. I could not even sit down for most of the ep – I was totally pacing around and DH thought I was nuts :roflhard:

My DH started watching season one on DVD and then sat me down and started over so I could see it. We’re a little bummed right now because we caught up last week (we had been DVR-ing season 2 while we watched season 1) and now we have to wait for new episodes. :verysad:

Ooh yes! I watched the first season just because there wasn’t much on (in New Zealand we have Channel One, Channel Two, Channel Three, C4 - guess what that stands for - and more recently, Prime) at that time. I knew Miller had become a sex symbol and I didn’t see it at all. Now I do, he has hot moments now, what a difference from the first season! It’s getting much more interesting. I’m also interested in the way the brother - Lincoln? - has changed from being helpless and borderline dependent on his brother inside. Now he is absolutely equal and up to the task of looking after himself and others - which in this context is keeping them from being caught again. Guess he’s more experienced at being a criminal than his clean-living architect brother :teehee:
What’s the state of events after the last episode? I’m assuming Sarah’s still in at the end of the series? She never slept with Michael (obviously!) so they can’t really work it in! Maybe they will keep her tummy out of shot.
What happens to T-bag (God what a creepy sleaze!)? And did he really think that after being threatened by a psycho serial murderer like him (one day I’ll get out and I’ll remember where your house is) and then finding out he had escaped from jail that his ex would be sitting in the same old house with the front door unlocked?

Ooh ooh!

I would be tempted to buy the DVD set, but some of the prison scenes were just to bad for my kids (even though they are teens) to watch. They would be too tempted if the DVDs were in the house. Maybe I could find it online somewhere.

BTW, I just had a chance to watch this week’s episode. Very good one.

I love Prison Break! I’m also a huge 24 fan, so I think Fox owns part of my soul. :teehee:

:happydance: New Eppy tonight!

Im pulling out the needles and getting comfy on the couch… :cheering:

{sigh} Wentworth Miller…

Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin. :oops: :heart:

At 8 pm on Monday nights, I will drop everything, including the knitting needles <gasp> to pay full attention to Prison Break.

Yes, I need help. My husband is quite glad that the escapees are now far, far away in Panama… hee hee. :teehee: :muah: :roflhard:

Finale tonight! :happydance: :pout: :roflhard:

CANNOT wait!!!

I can’t believe the season is over already :pout:

It was so awesome! Dark though. It reminded me of Harry Potter, when things just got really dark in a way that made everything that happened before seem like child’s play.

Gosh, the season went by so fast!!! Interesting storyline enders…

Next season looks to be very gritty.
