My Great Escape

My eyes hurt.

For three straight days, all Raft3r did was watch the first three seasons of Prison Break.

It was the DVD marathon to end all DVD marathons. That’s 57 episodes or 3,420 minutes spent in front of the television.

Here are a few things I learned from Michael Scofield and his crew:

1. Pretty boys are hot jail commodities.
2. It takes 22 episodes to escape from prison, another 22 to be incarcerated again and an additional 12 episodes to escape once more.
3. Panama is not a good place to be a bad boy.
4. Male eyebrow threading is uncool. You get that, Paul Kellerman?
5. SONA has a totally different meaning in Panama.
6. Once a monster, always a monster.
7. Betrayal, double crossing, and backstabbing transcend all race and gender.
8. Problems just keep piling up.
9. A female president is corrupt. GMA, is that you?
10. I will never look at tattoos the same way again.

i used to like the show. but when the third season started, its when my interest really got down.

but the concept (as far as the first two seasons go) was impressive.

Raft3r said...

I am not too crazy about the last season. Third one is not that bad.

The Scud said...

iniyakan ng kaibigan ko ang last episode ng series. natuwa ako. i like sad (bad?) endings. hehe.

RaYe said...

i only watched the first season. nawalan ng thrill when it occurred to me that it might be a cycle.. :D

Raft3r said...

the scud, I'm on the 4th season na. Hehe

raYe, Maganda sya. Trust me. Hehe

gillboard said...

i think naexhaust na masyado yung kwento... di na maganda yung huling 2 season...

be that as it may, idol ko pa rin si michael scofield...

Raft3r said...

gillboard, Medyo mahirap talaga i-stretch ang kwento nila.

Judayski said...

aha! kaya pala nagpagupit ha! channelling scofield and sucre pala tlaga ha! hmmm...

Raft3r said...

jusdayski, They are my crew now. Hehe

Wendy said...

Re number one, if Wentworth is incarcerated here, he'd be the pretty boy of Bilibid. Hanggang 2nd season lang ang natapos ko. Di makayanan ng suspension of disbelief powers ko ang story hehe.

Raft3r said...

wendy, It's heightened reality. Galing mismo yan sa mga taartits nila. Hehe

Random Student said...

oh well, sasakit talaga mata mo. 3 straight days ba naman. panama? naku, 'di nga? eh d'yan ako pinapapunta ng boss ko...

Random Student said...

by the way, sikat na sa blog ko yung 21 ways to grow mo LOL!

Raft3r said...

random student, Panama? Sama ako! Hehe. Dahil sayo, may mga bago akong bisita! Salamat!

atticus said...

raft3r, tinatanong ni gma ang address mo. sasagutin daw niya in person ang tanong mo.

kasama niya ang mga sumundo kay lozada sa airport.

Raft3r said...

atticus, Kelangan ko ng media coverage. Pronto! Nyahaha

Bernadette Anne said...

Hey, Rafter! Pretty boys are hot commodities anywhere and everywhere!

As for Prison Break, do not watch it too fast. The series has ended, I think.

As for Panama, it is nowhere as bad as they portrayed it to be. Panama is actually like Miami and it is beautiful. They have an old town with a fort which, if you see, will kind of remind you of some of those Spanish towns we have back in the Philippines.

Believe, if I were you, I would rather visit Panama than New Delhi. Regardless, the tennis court here awaits you.

Raft3r said...

bernadette anne, You know me. I like to exaggerate. Hehe
