I just read that FOX is cancelling “Prison Break.” I can’t say that I’m surprised or even too disappointed. That might sound strange considering that “Prison Break” is one of my favorite tv shows. (Stephen King said the same thing not too long ago in an issue of Entertainment Weekly.) I’ve followed the show without fail from episode one, season one. It’s still one of the first shows I’ll turn to when firing up the ole dvr.
So why am I not too disappointed that the show is coming to an end? Well, I think that it’s pretty much run it’s course. Truth be told, I wasn’t too sure that they’d be able to pull off a second season after breaking out of prison. But they did. The characters were interesting enough and the story moved fast enough that the twists and turns were a blast. The third and fourth seasons have been more of the same… but lately the show seems to be heading to a conclusion. And I have no problem with that. In fact, I’ll be there watching until the very end.
