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)

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.

Season 1 generally

Factual error: When Michael fills the tank with water (below the stock room), he then strips his clothes off, and slides down a pipe and into the water at the bottom of the tank. Since the water level was way above him, the pipe he slid down and the access to get there would have been flooded also. There was no water in the pipe he slid down, so for that area to be dry, it would have to be above the water line.

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.

Sona - S2-E22

Question: Bill Kim called the police, he said that. Why would he do that, because it was obvious he was going to kill Linc. It makes no sense.

Answer: I don't think he wanted to kill him, I think the plan was to get Linc and Michael into Sona so they could break out James Whistler.
