Prison Break

Allen - S1-E2

Stupidity: Michael is shown to test the dimensions of the Allen key against a tattoo. Why not just try it in the bolt? It would be a lot more accurate. (00:37:00)

Manhunt - S2-E1

Stupidity: When Scofield and his group escapes, they go to the warehouse to pick up shovels, so they can dig up the clothes they had buried in the graveyard. Why didn't Scofield just put his clothes in the warehouse too, wouldn't that have been way easier/less time-consuming?

Go - S1-E21

Stupidity: During the elevator scene, Tweener decides to press the elevator button in order to make the elevator go to the first floor by pulling the rope. He however, had more than enough time to get out of the elevator before the door closed to join the rest of the crew. (00:33:40)

Unearthed - S2-E9

Stupidity: Michael poses as an FBI agent to speak to Mrs Mahone including an ID badge. Mrs Malone is suspicious of Michael and why he is there. Yet she never examines the ID badge, something she would have done considering her ex husband is FBI and she would know a real one or fake one. (00:14:30)

And Then There Were 7 - S1-E11

Stupidity: When Michael realises they have too many clowns in the car, they think they can get rid of T-bag. But T-bag says he called someone and told them that "if he doesn't hear from me 5 minutes before the escape or 20 minutes after, he'll call the warden and blow the whistle." They could just go ahead as per usual until T-bag makes the 5 minutes before call, then kill him during the escape, and they still have 20 minutes after the escape.

Suggested correction: Michael is strongly against anyone dying. Throughout all 5 seasons he is remorseful at any loss of life. The act of killing T-bag just for the sake of it is not something he would allow.
