I see Prison Break is now on Netflix, best show ever.
Really? How recently did you watch it? I watched S1 a year or two back (first time viewer) and I was fairly shocked at how predictable and pedestrian it was. A real product of US network TV of a different era with cliched writing, overly drawn characters, the construction around ad breaks interrupting the flow, an overly bombastic and loud score...
I think that we have been spoilt for choice in terms of the quality of TV programming over the past 10 or so years, and this content from HBO, Netflix etc is so differently constructed from shows like Prison Break; when returning to watch such older style programmes these differences are writ large.
First release. Met wife after S1 so rewatched S1 and enjoyed that, a lot of detail I missed. Great story great plot. I hear you re more modern TV but so many say so much content is quickfire rubbish, quantity over quality. Mate started rewatching in weekend, loves it. Enjoyed Lost as well, same type of series, intricate and detailed, but that faded at the end
