Prison Break and 24-Ness  

There was both good and bad in tonight's Prison Break. The Lincoln/Michael backstory did not kill me (although Michael crossing the line with Veronica nearly did, and sheesh-- could that woman be dumber?).

Of the bad-- Sara. God, the whole drug addict thing-- why? So stupid and pointless, and I liked her a lot LESS after that. I'm of mixed minds about her running into Bellick at her Meeting-- it's plausible that he'd direct her to that job, AND that she'd just shoot him down the way she did (which made me cringe). Coincidental, but not deadly. And it lays a foundation for later animosity :D

Semi-bad: Lincoln bumping into Sucre in his getaway burst. Just... why? Why even go to that stupid "Lost-motivated" place? Just quit it. It makes your show look like schlock.

Funny: Sucre robbing the SAME liquor store again (dumbass!) and apologizing for it-- and for needing more money this time. Really, it was kind of sweet and so Sucre.

Best parts: Michael telling Lincoln he's tired of being the older brother to Lincoln, the whole Wall-Morphing and a chance to really look at some of the stuff on there, and finding out that Kellerman's been perkyEvil for a very long time. T-Bag's whole creepy story-- AND his manipulative attempts on that poor woman while he was in jail-- that was fantastic. And, on a shallower note, Linc with a hair profile and the beard stubble, ala "Blade Trinity." God, that's a good look for him.

And on the 24 front:
  • What, has the president's wife started taking her meds midway through this day? Her 180 character shift is giving me whiplash.

  • Bro-Prez... still love you. And your dearly-departed brother. Just... smooth for me, a little. Read me the phonebook in your fine-cut suit. And when you're tired, your brother's ghost can take over the talking, and Jack Bauer after that. Really-- I could enjoy this whole show with my eyes shut just listening to these three actors talk.
  • Aaron, you're a buckethead but I secretly love you anyway.

    You could see he had on a tight shirt under that jacket. I was screaming at him to take it off the whole time!
    Just the thought that there might BE a tight shirt-- at some point-- totally got me going.

    You know that the tight shirt was totally the inspiration for that PWP fic I posted up this morning, right? Guh.

    I didn't mind Lincoln bumping into Sucre, because I feared much, much worse.
    It was still needlessly bad, though, even if it was short.

    And the Sara backstory just made me want to flee the room. Ugh. And Michael/Veronica was just-- are you BOTH actually that stupid?

    Grin, I was busy thinking how much cuter Sara looked with her high boyfriend. She looked so much more at home there ;D

    But yeah, it was bad.

    And Michael/Veronica was just-- are you BOTH actually that stupid?

    Michael said no, didn't he?

    miniMike looks rather pissed-off at the joined hands.

    God, could the kidCasting be more random? Truly, it took me a moment to figure out who the hell those kids were, because only the Veronica one remotely resembled the adult version.

    CLUE: Wentworth has intense, piercing blue eyes and a bit of the gangly about him. The eyes, at least, will not have changed over time. Work with that in casting miniWent. *headdeask*

    My GOD, seriously! What are these casting people ON? Have they never seen WM? Or watched the show? Make Linc blond, make Michael too young/small to be an 11-year-old, make Linc look completely different at his mother's funeral than what is presumably a few weeks later hiding out at Veronica's, but at LEAST have the awareness to notice that WM's eyes are light, strikingly so, and they're not going to magically change from brown to green (or whatever color they are).

    I remember how the first slides said Michael 11, Veronica 12, but whoa no way. He looked way younger than her.
    mooyoo: Linc/Sara - Handsmooyoo on April 4th, 2006 06:23 am (UTC)
    Yeah. I'm going to continue to believe now, especially since we barely even saw that flashback, that Veronica is closer to about 15 there.
