Between this show, 24 and Six Feet Under, Mondays in 2005 have been good to me. I can count on one hand the number of RAW's I've watched this year live beginning to end.
I'm hooked...I think. I needs to catch the replay this Thursday (8-10p on FOX) to reassure myself. I'm not sure yet if I dig how this Michael Scofield is the smartest man alive, trying (and mostly succeeding) in manipulating the other inmates. And, for a guy who has no prior record to go out and seemingly randomly hold up a bank, you'd think they would have noticed that Scofield had some involvement in designing the prison.
The origami was cool.
Hey, Robin Tunney's looking quite fine, and - it's Stacy Keach!!
Was that the dude who played the veteran pitcher (Harris) in Major League playing the priest who got killed? And it's going to get a little getting used to seeing Robin Tunney w/ hair, after seeing her w/ the buzzcut in Empire Records.

I think they addressed this. The firm that had the bid to refurbish the place couldn't do it form some reason, so they sub-contracted it to Scofield's firm in an under-the-table deal. Scofield's higher-ups handed it down to him to do, which is why he said he "ghost wrote" the entire prison plans. Most likely he wasn't credited w/ the design, since his company wasn't even supposed to be doing it in the 1st place.
I really liked the way this film was shot. I thought it was a inventive way to have the audience along for the ride. The stop-motion, the occasional sub-title... I was very surprised how much I liked it...
