New obsession

The excellent drama series Prison Break just started on German TV 2 weeks ago. RTL is airing it on Thursdays at 10:15 p.m. (always 2 eps in a row). The ratings have been pretty bad – especially given RTL’s high standards (they are the market leader, at least when it comes to 14-49 year-olds) – so I hope they won’t take it off the air again soon. That’s because I’m very obsessed by the show already. I had heard only good things about PB beforehand (on the internet and from a friend of mine who has already seen most of season 1) and it really is a great show. In the German press it’s been compared to 24 a lot. I don’t see too many similarities, but that doesn’t matter. The basic storyline is this: Michael Scofield, an engineer from Chicago, gets himself into prison in order to break out again – together with his brother who’s already in there for having killed the vice-president’s brother and whose execution is only about a month away. Wentworth Miller is excellent as Michael Scofield, and of course there is also a romantic storyline: the prison has a pretty female doctor, Sara Tancredi, played by Sarah Wayne Callies. So I ship MiSa, naturally. And yesterday I started looking for fanfiction and videoclips about the 2 of them. Thank goodness for YouTube, but damn my slow internet connection. And it’s hard to find something without seeing, hearing or reading spoilers, which is not a good thing with any show that builds on suspense and thrill and surprising twists or whatever you would call that (in German we have this word Spannung, which can mean tension or suspense, but it’s hard to find a good expression in English). Um, yeah, so this I my new obsession (besides Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice). Wentworth Miller has fascinating blue eyes and is very good at staring intensely at someone. Sigh.

Blah. So there, I’m a silly fangirl once again.
