Ah the signs of autumn - falling leaves, temperatures finally warming up in San Francisco to tolerable levels, and the first regular-season grading thread. :bolian: This has been one long summer, perhaps because it started in February.

Yeah... it was HORRIBLE!!!

I just made a list of autumn shows I'll be watching, and I was like "damn, it's longer than last year..."

I haven't yet seen Season 3. Is it worth paying the current full price on DVD, or should I wait for it to drop?

It's only thirteen episodes, and they're asking ten bucks more than it cost to buy Season 2 of Dexter. That made me hesitate.

I think most Prison Break fans consider season 3 to be it's weakest season. I would wait for it to get on sale.

I think it is a pretty good season and it doesn't drag itself out due to it being shorter.

And, yep, the first grading thread. House will be coming up here in a week or two, so be prepared! :)

I would not bother to buy any season of PB except S1, at a discount or otherwise. It's strictly a dumb-fun show.

You mean--like Star Trek? ;)

I'll wait for it to go on sale, I guess.

I certainly consider it waaay better than that godawful second season...
At least the characters were together, and they were doing some prison breaking...

Star Trek had twice as many good seasons as PB!

And I don't think PB's spinoffs will be quite as successful. ;) If they ever get around to that Women-in-Prison thing they were threatening to do.

With oodles of lesbian subtext. But I imagine the feminine analogue to Avacado (Avacodrix?) will be a tad bit more alluring. :guffaw:

I really hope they do it. I want to see how sleazy they can get away with on broadcast TV.

The new status quo is fairly workable for a season (basically "Scofield's Eleven" mixed with "The Dirty Dozen"). Though the Company's powers have taken a serious hit since the first season, where they basically were the government; now they're just a corrupt cell that other bodies are actively trying to expel.

Biggest plus: Hot Doc Sara!

Well, this is off to a very promising start.

Very "Scofield's Seven" kind of feel. ;)

Great to SWG/Sarah back. Love her. :drool:

I'd love it to see if they can bring back Kellerman (we didn't technically see him die, there's room for him to come back.)

I still hate Susan B. Anthony/Gretchen and hope she's not around much this season the new "Operative" guy is well played.

All and all could be an interesting season.

The Wasian hacker kid is going to probably get annoying, and the "tech" in the series has almost reached Trekian levels what with the device that can nick codes and data just by both exsisting and the tattoo reversal (which I saw coming. It'll take some of the pressure off the wardrobe people and allow them to show Wentworth shirtless to please the ladies.)

So looks to be a very promising season!
