“Prison Break”: Back behind bars

Wentworth “Prison Break” bowed its third season last night and, based on that first episode, season 3 is going to be a lot more fun than season 2.

With the guys back together and incarcerated once again, this time in a Panamanian hell-hole, the show has that claustrophobic, high-tension vibe back. And how nice to see the tables turned on a couple characters: evil prison guard Brad Bellick behind bars; Agent Malone no longer the hunter; and Lincoln Burrows trying to be the savior for his little brother.

And now that Michael is forced to plan another escape, the show returns to its roots. I didn’t dislke season 2 as much as others did but since it involved neither “prison” nor a “break” it was a little disappointing.

I’m not completely back on the bandwagon, but I’m ready to go along for the ride.
