I would totally be on board with Sara/Kellerman. Something tells me Sara wouldn't though... Heck, I'd even think his whole trying to kill Sara bit pretty much ruined his chances with Michael. I mean, even with all the shit he'd done before, I could be persuaded to see some Michael/Kellerman action in the next couple episodes. But since Michael's Sara little whiney lapdog now, probably not. :(

Mahone/Pam so does not interest me. At all. I kinda wish Mahone's wife was more like how I wrote her before the character was introduced. I mean, I don't mind that Mahone is caught up in the conspiracy team (who isn't these days it seems?), but I hate how it limited his character. I liked Mahone as a villian in the first couple episodes because he wasn't a villian. He was a good agent that was too caught up in his job. It's fucking awesome that he killed Shales. I love crazy moralistic people. Very puritan. Love it. Which is why I wish Mahone had just become obsessed with his work, with enacting justice and punishing "evil" people, to the point where he ignored everyone and thing in his life. I wanted Pam to leave Mahone because of his obession, not him to leave her because he wanted to save her. Boring.

I *still* can't get on board with Michael/Sucre, despite all the ammunition the show has given us. It's purely BFF platonic OTP for me.

I actually do not like what they are doing with Bellick. I mean, I realize the PB writers has this whole religious and moralistic sentiment that they like to themetize in almost every episode, but I don't want to see Bellick get his comeupence. I would have liked it better if he had just killed himself. That would've been more interesting for his character. As for Avocado...didn't Tweener, um, castrate him?

Also? The letter K is too hard. I cannot even think of three things, much less ten.

Something tells me Sara wouldn't though...
The whole bathtub-drowning hacksaw hullaballoo would tend to put a damper on her feelings. ;)

I hate how Michael is now moping over Sara. He barely knew her! I feel crack coming on...

I also didn't like what happened with Mahone. I LOVED the idea of him being a good man, as obsessed as Michael, who would do the wrong thing just because he doesn't know (and he's got those blinders on). Dark!Mahone!Avec!Conspiracy is dullsville to me. It makes the character boring.

Michael/Sucre has never worked for me either (or for most people). I keep seeing the occasional query as to why there isn't more fic about it out there, but they just have the wrong kind of chemistry. It's definitely "friend" and not "lover." All the more obvious because the right chemistry is between Michael and Lincoln. What can you do?

Bellick... oy. The writers kind of ran amok off into overboard with him. I just can't see his character making that dumb decision. He'd be more likely to stick it out and then wall his mother up in a closet instead.

Letter K is too hard! You big weenie! Okay, how about "S"? Sockpuppets. Slash. Supernatural. Strawberries. Swindborne. Shelley. Sunshine. Swamp gas. (!)

Oh god yes, thank you. That's what I would have loved to see for the character, and what I'd kind of expected to happen. This show has become so black and white, even right down to the escapees, and I find that so very bland and trite. Everyone who is after Michael is Evil. Pope is no longer around, and none of the other nice, friendly COs are around, so that just leaves the conspiracy and The Company and such, all of whom are Evil.

T-Bag is Evil. Abruzzi was mostly Evil (and we were helpfully reminded of his Evilness right before his death, as it was his thirst for vegneance against an innocent man that led to his death). Sucre, Westmoreland, C-Note are all Good, even though they were all in prison. C-Note was just trying to earn money for his family, Westmoreland killing someone accidentally, and Sucre only stole enough money to take his girlfriend out. See? Good. So it's okay that we like them and root for them.

I was really looking forward to getting a character like Mahone, who would be hunting down the cons and trying to stop Michael but still not Evil. Isn't there anyone out there who wants to capture a group of criminals simply because they're, you know, criminals? Not everyone needs to be tied up to the conspiracy, and it just makes the show seem predictable and boring to me when each character can be placed so neatly into one box or the other.

I don't want to see Bellick get his comeupence.

I haven't watched the last episode, so I only know vaguely what's going on with him, but it seems like maybe TPTB have overestimated Bellick's importance to the show. Why do we even need to see Bellick get his comeupence? How does Bellick going to prison advance the overall plot of the show? I also don't get how he could have ended up in Fox River with Avacado - was he tried, convicted, and sentenced for Geary's death overnight?
she said mysteriouslyresounding_echo on December 1st, 2006 07:43 am (UTC)
Yes, you hit the nail on the head. The black and whiteness of the show is my biggest beef with it. That's why I hated the flashback episode so much. With the exception of Sarah, it made everyone just so, I dunno, not flawless but something. I liked the begining of first season when the characters seemed like characters and not stock cliches. I've always hated what they did to C-Note. It just didn't make sense. And if he really was this good guy that was fucked over by the government, why in god's name would he do something stupid and illegal and jepordize his relationship with his family instead of just doing his time? Grrr.

I think Mahone isn't a lost cause. I mean, he did kill Shales before The Company got to him, so he did have this whole good-guy crusade thing going on. But yeah, TPTB are definitely trying to flaten everyone out.

Word on Bellick's over extension. He really isn't that important now that he's been fired and the boys are out. As for his wicked fast removal to prison, he coped a deal and asked to be sent to Fox River. The writers tried to play it off like Bellick thought he would get easy treatment--not unlike a vacation--since all his buddies worked in the prison. I personaly don't think Bellick is that stupid. It really is an injustice to his character.
mooyoo: BoB - Winters/Nixonmooyoo on December 1st, 2006 08:45 am (UTC)
I know I shouldn't be putting this much thought into it because it's just going to bug me, but why would Bellick do something so stupid? Especially since he didn't actually kill Geary, and it seems like it'd be pretty damn easy to prove as much. And aren't like, the two most targetted inmates in most prisons ones who are snitches and ones who are former cops? (or am I making that up?) How could he be dumb enough to think that the inmates wouldn't immediately go after him, even if the other COs did try to look out for him? God, that's just annoyingly dumb.

I feel like maybe the writers forgot that viewers can still root for, or at least be interested in and captivated by characters who aren't perfect and Good. Perhaps they thought we wouldn't be able to sympathize with C-Note and Sucre and want to follow their stories outside of prison if there wasn't a heartwarming love and/or family story. I've always liked Sucre, and I'm pretty sure I would have been just as able to follow him if he'd, say, stolen all the money in the register and accidentally killed someone in the process. I'd still be interested in C-Notes family issues (not that I'm all that interested in them anyway) if he'd been a drug dealer. It bugs me that the writers seem to think that the only way to shock or wow us is to either make everyone part of the conspiracy or kill them. It no longer feels like they're even trying to write realistic, well-rounded characters.

*gets all bitter* Sorry. I'll stop now.

It bugs me too-- especially after taking pains to show Bellick's more clever side in S1. It's as if all TPTB saw was the payoff at the end, of Bellick in Avocado's cell. The fact that Bellick would never be that stupid fell by the wayside. :(

It bugs me that the writers seem to think that the only way to shock or wow us is to either make everyone part of the conspiracy or kill them.
Word, word, word. It IS possibly to have both plot and characters. Someone ought to let Paul Scheuring know that. :(

Word. The conspiracy bores the snot (and credibility) out of me, especially as it spreads like a cancer through all the newer characters. :(

I guess what really disappoints me, and I need to resign myself and get over it, is that the producers/writers want this show to be about plot and thrill. NOT the characters. They're perfectly content to let the characters stay underdeveloped or worse yet, to contradict what little they've shown of them.

FANFIC is where we get the depth. TPTB just simply aren't interested.

Okay, I filled it out. It was probably the best poll I have ever had the pleasure of doing because it crapped me up.

Oh my god! You know I've been reading for too many hours on the effects of Radical Religion on Restoration England to have typed CRAPPED rather than cracked. *rolls on floor with laughter*

It's a Freudian slip, I tell you!

Your study topic actually pains me. Ouch!

(Has memories of writing Pacifism from the point of Nagel. And like it more).
the reluctant lobotomist: stop ogglingfourfreedoms on December 1st, 2006 03:35 pm (UTC)
Eh, I think it's interesting. But it's too much that's for sure. IT WAS NOT a Freudian slip. No.

Oooh this was super fun to fill out!

He's Sara's secret crybaby now, because the writers are smoking crack.
I had to vote this one :( If I just convince myself that PB will wind up Michael/Sara, then I'll be overjoyed if it isn't instead of upset when they get together. Glass half empty? Yup.

Ugh, Michael/Sara, kill me now. Lincoln... ;_;
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: L/M Prisoner of Lovehalfshellvenus on December 1st, 2006 05:50 pm (UTC)
I had to vote this one :(
*Sigh* There was a reason I put it in there! After that last episode, where he's pining over-- let's face it-- a pretty stranger whom he knows less than anyone who's ever worked in his old office, or practically ANY woman whose name he knows... gah. Michael who? This guy's a wimpy, weepy dork. :(

Michael/Lincoln will always be my OTP, even when Lincoln isn't entirely willing. ;)
aeroport_art: M/Laeroport_art on December 1st, 2006 07:33 pm (UTC)
Weepy? My god, Michael is a full blown adult crybaby. I wish those tears were only for Linc but alas... I don't think the American public is ready for that (or ever will be, meh).

COOL,,,I'm * kinda * a choice for a poll question *g*

Now I know how all these Sara's much feel LOL

For the record the man says, apparently I slapped him hard in the head with my hand in my sleep last night, he's not killing anyone and he can have me. :o(

I like the idea of Kim doing mall security can we possibly eventually reduce Kellerman down to actually being a jerky salesman??

Oh, you WERE a choice. And several people selected you, too.. :)

and he can have me. :o(
William Fichtner, are you listening? :)

I think I want Kellerman to be selling shoes. CHEAP shoes, with bitchy and stinky clientele. ;)

Hah-hah! I've only written the one PB crackfic, though Michael is really tempting me right now with his stupid behavior.

Kim, Kim.... how I hate him. :D

Out of all the fandoms that could include possible incest (that I know of) this is the one that makes most sense to me...or could be because I'm a big perv and they're so hot together. Can't be sure.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: PB slashhalfshellvenus on December 1st, 2006 07:45 pm (UTC)
:D There is no way for me NOT to see Michael as being infatuated entirely with Lincoln-- it's one of the reasons (besides the ridiculous lack of plot/character support) that the Michael/Sara thing will never work for me.

Michael/Lincoln. Hotness. Rrrrowr!
dragontattdragontatt on December 1st, 2006 07:48 pm (UTC)
Infatuated is right- who else would Michael have planned such an elaborate escape scheme for? Not for Sara certainly...
