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)

Answer: Roughly as follows. Linc "kills" Steadman in 2001. Michael robs the bank on March 9th 2005 and is sent to Fox River on April 11th. The breakout from Fox River takes place on or around May 25-31. Michael arrives in Sona on June 17th 2005. More details are here:


That wouldn't make sense because the original grave stone in series 4 has Michael's death date as 2005, which is supposed to be at least 3 years after Fox River.
