My youngest son is away visiting his Dad, went for a few days but has not come home yet so must be having a good time!!!
So the house is quiet, peaceful and I am not really sure what to do with myself.
My eldest son had a great idea.
While he was out shopping he saw something he thought I would just love.
Apparently I watched an episode of Prison Break with him a long time ago and really enjoyed it.
So he got the whole first series on DVD and we have to watch them together. That’s a whole 22 episodes.
Now for someone who never watches TV , falls asleep at the cinema, this could prove to be a hard task.
3 episodes down 19 to go !!!

You mean the last episode of series one? Terrible cliffhanger isn’t it?
Just this week I watched the last episode of series two. Aaargh!!!
I won’t say anything…

He’s never seen Babylon 5 then. Yeah it’s sci-fi, but it’s nothing like that shallow, simplistic Star Trek nonsense. It has a real story, actually many different stories, it’s incredibly deep. And there’s no pretentious tech talk.
Even if you’re not into sci-fi, it’s worth checking out. But prepare for the long haul, 110 episodes over 5 years (5 series). In fact, the entire story was written before the first episode was filmed. You don’t even find out who the real enemy is until the second year.
The first series seems like a tepid warm up, during which you might easily mistake it for typical sci-fi fare, but stick with it. Some way into the second series it becomes apparent that this is really something different. If you go back and watch the early episodes later, you’ll see all sorts of hints and clues that you completely missed the first time around.
Younger Son absolutely adores it! He says it is the best thing that has EVER been on television. I’ve never seen it as it’s always on past my bedtime.
Have you seen West Wing though? Now that is the BEST thing to ever be on television.
Well, enjoy! At least if they’re on DVD you can watch as much as you like, when you like so I’m sure they’ll make you happy for a long time to come! [I never used to watch TV till I came here but in the absence of Radio 4…]
Yes Ruthie , he is rather watchable….
7 down 15 to go…..
There’s one REALLY great reason for watching this show:
Yes I am enjoying them and look forward to watching the next episode.
See if i can watch them all before I go off to walk the GR20
oh, that’s so sweet. I love it. Who knows you may enjoy them.
I hope you’re enjoying it! It’s a great programme, not at all what you’d expect from a typical prison drama. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong, yet somehow all is not lost…
I’m just two episodes from the end of series two, but I won’t spoil it for you. 🙂
5 down….. 17 to go 🙂
