After finishing the six season Quantum Leap series, I was at a loss! I knew there had to be other TV series out there, but I just didn’t know where to start. Thanks to my friend, Eric, I started watching Prison Break (via Netflix, of course) and am now seriously entrenched in the series.
It’s exciting and gripping AND Brett likes it too, which is nice. He was never much of a Quantum Leap or Smallville fan. But, he’ll sit down to watch Prison Break with me and we’ll end up watching all four episodes on the disc!
Brett has strange tastes in movies, like me, so it is one of the things we have in common.
For instance, I was never really that interested in the Harry Potter series. I just thought it was another kid movie from a book. Big whoop. But Angie and I went the $1.50 theater for a movie and decided (what the hey) that we would watch Harry Potter #3. After that, I was hooked. Those movies are amazingly well made, have great plots, and are whimsical, moving, and entrancing all at the same time.
After fighting with myself for a while, I sacrificed the money to buy Harry Potter 1-4 on DVD. It turned out to be a great investment, since I find myself watching one or the other pretty frequently. And the interesting thing was how much Brett liked the movies.
I would ask him what movie he wanted to watch, and he would say, “You can put one of your Harry Potters in.” He puts the emphasis on your but he wants to watch them even more than I do now!
Back to Prison Break, I would highly recommend it if you are an action/suspense freak like myself. It’s much cleaner than OZ (HBO’s version of prison life) but with a lot of the same-type characters. Plus Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller aren’t exactly hard on the eyes! Ha! Ha!
This show is NOT for the faint of heart, though. If violence makes you squeamish, you’d better stick to The Waltons!
