Prison Break Redux

Well, I guess I know why Michael Scofield had to die at the end of Prison Break. Clearly, it was all an evil ploy on the part of Fox to get me to purchase their DVDs. So far I've only succumbed to downloading some episodes for my iPod, but I have to admit being tempted. Oh, and what did I find while browsing the DVDs online? I found there is something called Prison Break: The Final Break coming out on DVD next month which will fill in the four years missing from the end of the finale. Apparently it actually aired in other countries, but because Fox canceled the show we get only a DVD release here in the U.S. On the one hand, there are a number of shows I wish would have done a DVD release to tie up loose ends. On the other hand, I'm still bitter about them killing off Scofield, which was cheap at best. Now I feel entirely manipulated into purchasing this DVD. I wish I could say that I won't buy it, but what can I say? I'm weak. I have to see what happened. F-ing Fox.

Well, it is nice that you are guaranteed more of your show. Not so great that the "more" part includes watching the character die.

I can offer no solace or advice, having been - and still being - weak as well...LOL! We have to know because we're invested. Bastards. At least we're keeping the squeaky wheels of the economy turning! I say: Well done, us!

@Kate, Well it will come in handy for those days when I'm not already feeling depressed about my life!
@Dee, So far my attempts to single-handedly spend us out of this recession have failed, but I keep trying!
