Default Lost Or Prison Break

I have watched prison break since the begininng and its my overall favorite show(not the best show, just my personal fav) but i recently saw season 1 and 2 of lost and im hooked just like i was prison break, i'll have to admit lost is a better show, prison break is a fun far fetched show i understand, that and some of the actors on pb can't act at all lol....so just wanted some ppl's opinnions on both the shows......thanks

Well, I don't really get what you're asking. Do you want to know what show to continue watching? Which to buy on Blu-ray?

I personally loved Season 1 of Prison Break but thought it went downhill after Season 2.

Lost, on the other hand, has just kept getting better and better with the seasons.

I stuck with Prison Break up until season 3 when an unexpected death occured that was clearly a write-in to make up for an actor not being able to return. That was the last straw for me. I'm biased about Lost. It's probably my favorite TV show of all time. I recommend you watch the rest of it immediately! It's a brilliantly complex character study that will be watched for decades to come and maybe even longer. As the show progresses it steers away from the character studies and more into the actual story of the Lost island and its purpose. When asked if the series finale would be heart breaking or heart warming, the producers said 'Neither. We're going for MIND BLOWING.' I have little doubt that that's exactly what will happen.

Prison Break went downhill in the 3rd season. Lost is going downhill this season (5th), but I'm still hooked.

Yes you're right, I form opinions based on no actual knowledge. (I have watched the show, or tried too, on several occasions)

Lost: We've crashed on an island! Ok cool we got off, but wait, now we're back on it or something? Wait, no we aren't?! WHAT, We HAVE to go back to finish this story arc! OMG! LET'S GO!!

There is no rolleyes emoticon big enough to describe this show. But I'll try...





Prison Break: Had a great first season but the second season and onwards destroyed it. HAY GUYS WE GOT OUT OF PRISON! I must go hunt them down! Oh NO now we're in a Panamanian prison, we better start ESCAPING AGAIN! We must avenge lost loves now as well!

I love how this has become a vent thread for people who are against both series. I'm normally one of the people saying everything on TV is garbage (which it mostly is) but Lost needn't be thrown in with that. It's the first TV series I've openly recommended to anybody and everybody since Twin Peaks. Chances are the same haters here hate Twin Peaks too.

OP, note that not a single person has said 'Prison Break is amazing but Lost sucks'.
