The original Prison Break (2005-2009) is about a brilliant structural engineer named Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) who carries out a complicated and risky plan to break his brother, Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell), out of Fox River State Penitentiary before his execution for a crime he didn't commit. The show ran for four seasons and ended with unsatisfying, unaired TV movie called "The Final Break." Fortunately, Prison Break returned in 2017 with a nine episode revival (season five). Billie Doux wrote season reviews of the original series and TV movie, and individual reviews of the revival.
