Story line is still good but there are areas in this movie where it is slow and lacking something. You hope "Haywire" makes it to Holland and other characters reach their loved ones. But as in any good series, there are the twists, cringes and turns.

Just as exciting as season 1, only with a change of scenery

"I know the opinions about season 2 will be more mixed than season 1, but I personally believe that season 2 is just as exciting as 1. The only difference is that there's a change of scenery and a focus on some different characters. But I still find Prison Break to be one of the best shows on tv right now and just as compelling and heart-pounding as ever! Prison Break still manages to be intriguing, simple enough to follow, with great characters people really care about. In particular, Paul Adelstein (who plays Agent Kellerman) does a really fabulous job this season, whereas last season he was more of a minor character. And unlike Lost, this show actually manages to answer questions and move the plot along. This season has also held steady in the ratings unlike some other shows, which must mean that it's doing something right. As always, the biggest weakness is that it's as ludicrous as it was first season, but this is fiction. If I wanted reality, I'd watch a documentary. And I don't think it's really any more unrealistic than any other action drama on tv today. I give this season 5 stars and can't wait to see what the writers will cook up for season 3."

"As the second season of Prison Break opens, things get moving along rather quickly. Michael (Wentworth Miller), Linc (Dominic Purcell), Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), C-Note (Rockmond Dunbar), and John (Peter Stormare) have escaped from prison and are on the run. After going their seperate ways, shady FBI Agent Mahone (William Fichtner) arrives on the scene with one main intention: stop Michael and Linc from escaping the country. In the meantime, T-Bag (Robert Knepper) goes to some great lengths to get what he wants, and Captain Bellick (Wade Williams) is still hot on the brothers' trail. The conspiracy that was apparent in season one is even more farther reaching here, as revelations are made that will cost everyone involved dearly, and by the end of the season, not everyone that has been here since the beginning will still be standing. What makes Prison Break so good is that the show never relents from it's break neck pacing. This could easily be a bad thing, but the minds behind Prison Break manage to keep the constant flow stable enough so you never know what to expect next. Even with the major change of scenery for the main characters, the show stays more compelling than ever as it becomes a high octane game of cat and mouse. Undoubtedly one of (if not the) best shows on prime time network television today (and on Fox), Prison Break just keeps getting better, and by the end of the season finale, you'll be salivating for more."
Not quite the same as season 1, but still very enjoyable

"The first question that I think many people want answered is whether the 2nd season is as good as the 1st. In my opinion it is not quite as "good" as season 1. One could tell that season 1 was worked out to the finest detail, every step of the way, it was simply a brilliantly crafted plot, filled with suspense and wondering what was going to happen next.
Season 2 is also very suspenseful, with some great twists inbetween. The characters are still very deep and convincing. But one cant't help but notice that the storyline sort of falls apart towards the last 3 or 4 episodes, where one got the feeling of an ingenious plot in season 1, season 2 had the effect of "well this is what happened, now it can go in any direction". What I'm actually trying to say is that season 2 did not quite play out in that same clever way in which season 1 did.
That being said, it was an a highly entertaining season(2), that will keep 1st time viewers on the edge of their seats the entire time. I highly recommend this box set, simply because even with the drawbacks, it is still my favourite tv series and I think die-hard fans will enjoy it immensely.
Hope this was useful. Regards from South Africa!"

"After Season 1 I was worried that season 2 could not possibly be as good. The story continues outside the prison and the conspiracy lives on. The characters are strong, difficult to pick a favourite. They managed to intelligently combine action, romance and suspense. Can't wait for season 3."
