Tonight’s cuppa: Irish breakfast decaf tea

As coverage of the Democratic National Convention in Denver continues, I’ve moved on toPrisonbreaklogo_2

the season premiere of "Prison Break" — click here for my visit to the set — due Sept. 1 on Fox.

WARNING: If you’re super-mega-clever or just a very good guesser, this could
possibly be considered spoiler-ish. So, if you fancy yourself either of
the above, run, do not walk, in the opposite direction.


Part one: "Scylla"

Michael’s writing a letter in case he dies. On "The Middleman" on Monday, the Middleman and Wendy recorded messages in case they died. On the season premiere of "Heroes," one of the characters that died earlier left a message in case he died (which in retrospect, was kinda smart). So, what’s up with the pre-mortem messaging? How many people really do that? Hands up who wrote a letter or recorded a message in case they died. Wow, more than I thought. You people are mor. bid.

Gretchen’s in trouble. Whoopsie! Gretchen, get a hat. It’s a UV nightmare in the desert. I’m sure you could have met in a nice cafe in Palm Springs instead.

Michael found a working pay phone in L.A.!

Arizona — hah. Looks like Lancaster to me.

Europeangoldfinch.net. Nice to have you back.

Hey, we’re back by the sea. Nice hat, Mahone. Going fishing later?

Bang, you’re dead!

T-Bag’s bags are packed, he’s ready to go. Bet he’s leavin’ in a jet plane. Or … not.

It’s Mrs. Mahone, a k a Jimmy’s widow from "Rescue Me" and McNulty’s ex from "The Wire." Chick gets around.

Hands in the air!

Knock, knock, Mrs. Mahone Keefe McNulty…

Hey, there’s a working pay phone on the New York Street at 20th Century Fox Studios.Ballroom_004btr_2

Hands on your head!

Ah, Homeland Security, modern TV’s one-stop-shopping for good guys, bad guys and guys who can get around the government to get things done. See earlier "Fringe" post.

Colorado — hah. Looks like Valencia to me.


Surprise, Michael!

Ooh, back tats.

Surprise, T-Bag!

The gang’s all here.

Ow, that looks like it hurts.

Leavin’ on a jet plane…

Part Two: "Breaking and Entering"

You’ve been Garmined. Or is it Tom-Tomed?

Here’s your warehouse. Toothbrushes next to the sink. Say hi to the new guy.

It’s kind of like "Ocean’s Eleven," but without the nice suits or the money or the imported sunglasses or George Clooney or Las Vegas, and there aren’t actually 11 of them. Otherwise, so alike, it’s spooky.

Mexican desert — hah. Looks like Lancaster to me.

The docks! I knew there’d be docks. See the previous post.


Another bucket hat, Mahone? How many do you have?

Oh, THAT’s who that guy was in part one.

Hey, new guy, I want me one of THOSE.

Fancy L.A. neighborhood — hah. Looks like Long Beach to me.

Donner Party, table for one!

It’s all Greek to me.

Duct tape, a scary guy’s best friend.

Stylin’ tee, Sarah.

HAHAHAHAHAH. That’s the nastiest line of the year.


We’ve got 30 minutes left in the two-part premiere, and you’ll just have to wait for the rest.
