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.

    I agree that there was something more to them stopping than just Lincoln, especially because Michael ignored the phonecall and didn't look like he really felt guilty about what happened, just that he knew they shouldn't. I don't think it was all about stopping because he doesn't want to screw his brother's ex, and I like the idea that there was something more to the two of them, and their own history together (again, platonic history) that also made them stop. But I do think that Lincoln played a part in their stopping (and I'm filing this all away for possible Michael/Linc/Veronica...)

    I need to shut up now.

    Bah, you really don't. Unless you have to, you know, sleep or something (which I really, really should be doing right now).

    Sleep? I don't know what that means. I'm working on a giant post right now to organize all my thoughts.

    Woohoo! Though I'll probably have to go to bed before I read it. Which is another advantage of watching the ep early! I already have thoughts on it and then can write them as I watch a second time ;P

    Hehehe, I knew you would.

    My post is up and now I'm going to bed.

    The way I saw it he stopped it was because if he and V would get together, eventually Lincoln would find out and that would make it uncomfortable. Even if Michael doesn't feel guilty about it, chances are that Veronica would (her still interest in Lincoln was all over the place) and I don't think Michael wanted to risk that/go through that. Either way it would fuck up their 3-dynamics.
