Prison Break: Season 3 - Rotten Tomatoes

Prison Break: Season 3 (2007-2008)




Critic Consensus: Prison Break's third season relocates the drama back behind bars, but the series feels like it's just retreading old ground with a series of new contrivances in tow.

Tv Season Info

The third series finds Michael Scofield back in prison with disgraced FBI Agent Alexander Mahone, ex-prison guard Brad Bellick and villainous Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell. But Panamanian prison Sona is no Fox River---the inmates run the ruthless penitentiary on the inside while armed guards beyond the fence stand ready to shoot any would-be escapees. At the top of the prison pecking order is murderous drug lord Lechero, who tells the new inmates that disputes are resolved via the gift of a chicken foot, which signals an inmate's desire to fight another to the death. Lechero immediately distrusts Michael for fear that his celebrity status as an escape artist may threaten his rule.

Critic Reviews for Prison Break: Season 3

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

Of course, prison breaking is 99 percent scheming and one percent breaking. And another 98 percent brooding. Which all made this episode a lot like watching a hockey game. With no puck.

With so much going against it, this shortened third season of Prison Break could have been disastrous. But instead, the writers managed to not only salvage the season, but tell a tightly woven, compelling and action-packed story.

September 25, 2018 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

Prison Break is still pulling in its audience and delivering the satisfying character twists that have become the show's trademark. When operating at its peak, this is still an addictive weekly crowd-pleaser.

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

Equivalent to a tire being stuck in the mud.

They are on their way to recapture the beauty of season one.

September 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The show appears to have lost none of its kinetic energy. So sit back, give in, and be very thankful that you're not watching this in a Central American prison.
