    Season 3 of Prison Break takes us back to a familiar scenario. Michael Scofield is trying once again to break out of prison. Only this timeSeason 3 of Prison Break takes us back to a familiar scenario. Michael Scofield is trying once again to break out of prison. Only this time the setting is different. Last season's finale ended on a tense note. It gave us a glimpse at what looked like a more brutal and darker place to be locked up when compared to the Fox River Penitentiary of the show's first season. It showed a lot of promise.

    Unfortunately it doesn't quite live up to that potential. "Sona" comes off as quite tame compared to Fox River. Shocking considering the lack of guards. The sense of anarchy that could have been in place is sadly lacking. That's not to say there isn't a sense of urgency. The lives of these characters are still in danger, and it's still a joy to watch them try and survive. Even if the story isn't up to par with the excellent first two seasons.

    The mystery grows larger. Unfortunately this season is lacking in big reveals, or really any reveals at all. It leads to the whole season feeling more like a side-story rather than the next big chapter in the story of Michael and crew. A few shocking developments take place and some new players are introduced while older ones are killed off, but it's lacking in all of these categories when compared to previous seasons.

    That's not to say the show isn't still enjoyable. It's just lost some steam. I was still on the edge of my seat in every scenario. Even when it was completely obvious they writers were just teasing us with some tension that we know the characters would wiggle their way out of consequence free. The show is still at it's best when it's using it's brain. Watching the heroes and villains constantly play a game of chess in order to stay ahead is as thrilling as ever. Prison Break still provides plenty of satisfying moments where a plan comes together and our crew makes a narrow escape. It might not live up to what came before, but there are still plenty of reasons to follow this story.

    I give season 3 an 8.5/10.

    Whether it was always planned or the result of mixed reviews for season two the writers and producers saw fit to return Michael Schofield toWhether it was always planned or the result of mixed reviews for season two the writers and producers saw fit to return Michael Schofield to his original remit, namely breaking out of a high security prison.

    This time the prison is located in Panama and while this third season never quite recaptures the quality of the first it certainly heralds a slight return to form. For me the main problem in this second escape attempt is that Michaels escape from Fox River took a huge amount of pre-planning to accomplish, it seems unlikely he could repeat this feat so readily. Despite the tense storyline and interesting characters it is not always as easy to suspend ones disbelief once again.
