Prison Break: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

Prison Break: Season 2 (2006-2007)




Critic Consensus: Prison Break's second phase branches its inaugural season's focused narrative into a series of tangents on the lam, which may lose the interest of some viewers but does maintain the series' propulsive momentum.

Tv Season Info

The second season kicks off with the eight inmates-turned-fugitives facing their first morning outside the walls of the Fox River State Penitentiary. Led by Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), the mastermind behind the breakout, the escapees endeavor to stay ahead of the manhunt spearheaded by FBI Agent Alexander Mahone (William Fichtner). He begins his pursuit with a press conference to seek the public's help before taking a closer look at Michael's tattoos, which hold clues about his post-escape plans. Dr. Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), Michael's love interest and abettor, overdoses but survives, only to become a pawn in the political conspiracy as she tries to reunite with Michael. Disgraced prison guard Brad Bellick (Wade Williams) loses his job and joins the hunt for the Fox River 8 as a bounty hunter. While Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) sticks close to his brother Michael, some of the ex-prisoners pursue their own agendas: John Abruzzi (Peter Stormare) wants to settle an old score; Fernando Sucre (Amaury Nolasco) tries to halt the wedding of his beloved Maricruz (Camille Guaty); and Benjamin Miles "C-Note" Franklin (Rockmond Dunbar) and villainous Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell (Robert Knepper) each try to reunite with their families. However, the paths of six of the wanted men converge in Utah, where they try to recover the loot stashed by the legendary hijacker D.B. Cooper. Unfortunately for the fugitives, a shadowy government agent has ordered Agent Mahone to track down and kill the Fox River 8, and Mahone appears to be Michael's intellectual equal.

Critic Reviews for Prison Break: Season 2

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

More than is the case on many shows, its biggest thrills are plot based, with the writers trying to trick us as they pull the characters in and out of impossible situations. Unlike the plot twists, the acting has never been particularly distinguished.

September 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Now the show itself seems dizzy, as if reeling from a sudden, liberating intake of fresh air. The first two episodes are hectic, wild and disorientingly daring, with a couple of real jolts.

September 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Prison Break has clearly run out of creative gas. What was a darn good show in its first season has deteriorated badly in its second. The drop in quality has been so precipitous that I shudder to think what Season 3 will look like.

September 25, 2018 | Full Review…

A solid, tense drama.

September 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Freeing the Prison Break characters from prison also frees the show from the repetitive cat-and-mouse plots that dragged down the show in its first season.

September 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Michael and Lincoln are incidental to the action, which would be an interesting narrative approach were these subplots not so silly.
