Anybody Else Watching Fox's Prison Break?

Yeah, I watch too much TV.

But, okay, so Lorie from Polipundit says the guys who developed 24 developed this show as well.

You might not think that a prison break could provide the basis for a whole series, but so far, it's working. Not really too much padding. Some, but it seems like it's meaningful down the line (while the hero tries to break his brother out of jail, the brother's lawyer is trying to clear his name). It's not like 24 style padding, where every time Jack is in transit and they need to kill five minutes one of his family members gets randomly abducted.

It's a lot like Escape From Alcatraz, but that's a good thing.

Anyway-- worth watching.

Funny, though, that the 24 people have created a new series that has the same problem as the old one, only worse this time. If the series is a hit-- what do you do for next season? You can't possibly have the hero try to break another family member out of jail, can you?

Angela Landsbury on Murder, She Wrote famously had a large circle of family members and friends who could be killed every week. Can they do that with Prison Break?

And, just curious-- let's face it, every time Angela Landsbury showed up, someone got killed. I'm not detective, but did anyone ever suspect it was Angela Landsbury herself killing everyone, setting someone up as a patsy, and then "solving" the murders she herself committed? Just saying, when someone just suddenly shows up for 300 consecutive murders, maybe you want to stop listening to her "theory of the crime" and start asking about her alibi.

Why did people keep inviting her to visit them? Didn't anyone realize that it wasn't a good idea to invite Auntie Angel of Death to their wedding?
