‘Prison Break’ Season 1: What caught the fans’ eyes?
‘Prison Break’ was a phenomenon. It has been more than 4 years since fans haven’t heard a word about if the show is going to be back or not, but most of them are still hopeful. The show was a success, and it is no mystery to anybody. The plot is really interesting, the actors did a great job throughout the whole series, but let’s dive in a little more on why the show was big as it was.
To start with, Fox’s executives were worried about how the show would be accepted by the audience. The premise of the show is complicated and there was not a lot of hope it would perform well. But that was exactly why it was a success. ‘Prison Break’ is an extremely bold show, and it gives the audience a feeling that “things won’t work out” until they do. And that feeling is constant.
The first season kept the fans intrigued with how exciting it was in a “small” space. The jail was the main space for the first season. The feeling of claustrophobia was inevitable. Since the first episode, the pace of the show was set and did not change until the last episode. Action scenes, a lot of tension between the characters, and an unexpected ending to each episode.
When talking about the characters, it is easy to see why the plot was amazing. There is a constant development of the general storyline together with each character. Each one of them has a deeper story and as the show goes on, we start to understand more and more why they do what they do. Little by little, we understand their real intentions.
Curiosities about the show
It is interesting to see how fantasy could have an effect in the real world. For most of us, a television show is just entertainment, but to the government of the United States, it was more than that. The show was prohibited in 13 American maximum security prisons so that inmates would not be motivated to try anything daring.
Another curiosity that could explain why ‘Prison Break’ was so popular is that it could have been based on a true story. Two American brothers named Robert and Donald Hughes were on the run after Robert was accused by his mom, who suffered from hallucinations, of trying to kill her, and ended up being wrongfully arrested. Donald planned his brother’s escape and Robert was claimed innocent after a few years.
Is there any chance season 6 will exist?
According to Dominic Purcell, there is no chance that he is going back to the show for season 6. Purcell played Lincoln’s role, and he said that in a recent conversation with Wentworth Miller, who played Michael Scofield’s role, they both had come to the agreement that the show could go on without them.
What do you think as a fan? Do you think there is still a chance for the show to be back with or without the brothers?
