Brother's Keeper - S1-E16

Plot hole: In a previous episode Link says he ditched the gun after he was framed and that he chose the gun the night before. Earlier in the episode, Michael met Link off the street, then went to a bar and met Veronica, then those two go to Michael's apartment. At the apartment, Michael gets the call from Link who is trying to get Michael to talk him out of killing Stedman. But how could he choose a gun the night before when he is asked to kill Stedman and calls Michael on the same day?

Rendezvous - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: Near the beginning when the van is chasing the police car, watch the position of the van. It gets nearly alongside the cop car, only to jump behind it when the scene changes. (00:04:40)

Flight - S1-E22

Continuity mistake: The blood mark the young inmate leaves on the concrete changes from the time its made until when its found. When its made it is just a small blotch. When Bellick finds it, it is a full on hand print. (00:10:30 - 00:14:25)

Fin del camino - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: While Michael is speaking on the phone to the Spanish operator, the small antenna on his phone is raised, but when he starts speaking with Alex and the shot changes back to Michael the small antenna seems to have disappeared. (00:38:15)

Chicago - S2-E16

Other mistake: After Michael, Lincoln, Sara, and Kellerman jump the train, the scene of the police in pursuit pulling into a clearing is the same from the 'Dead Fall' episode - just a different shot. (00:35:05)

Breaking and Entering - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: At the car dealer where Don Self speaks to the seller, the seller says "How did you find me?" and they are inside the car dealership. Don responds with "I've never lost you". Suddenly when Don answers they are outside the building, like they teleported. (00:13:25)

Subdivision - S2-E6

Factual error: Early in the episode, a flyover context shot is made. It is labeled "Salt Lake City Federal Building." In reality, the image is of the Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas. In the background, you can see the community arts center and the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center.


Brother's Keeper - S1-E16

Audio problem: When C-Note and the other guy are talking at the train station the other guy says "-been on lead for a long damn time now" and his lips aren't in sync with the sound.


Michael Scofield: This is going wrong in every possible way.

More quotes from Prison Break

Trivia: S4E11: (spoiler) The Scylla alarm on the General's computer is visible on screen for a second or two. Below the flashing word 'alarm', it says it is in section AA-23. That's also the designation of the prison block where Princess Leia is being held in Star Wars. This was certainly done intentionally, but is also easy to miss.

Show generally

Question: I don't understand how Michael and Lincoln have different last names when they are brothers with the same parents, why aren't they both Burrows or both Scofield?

Answer: Michael took his mother's maiden name after his father deserted them.
