Here is Wade Williams as Officer — correction — ex-Officer and fugitive Brad Bellick in a commercial for the Isuzu Vehicross…
(higher quality version)
I have to admit, besides Heroes, Prison Break is one of my favorite television shows right now. Yes, they’re really stretching the concept, the scenarios they get in to are pretty much outlandish and almost unbelievable, and the coincidences and questionable motives of the characters are pretty much worthy of viewer hatred.
So why do I love it? I’ll break it down to these (coupled with random screenshots of Brad Bellick revealing his lovely chest hair in Season 4, Episode 6).
1. Spectacular acting all around. There is not a single character who I do/did not like. I also love the surreal dialogue they would sometimes have. Sometimes, I swear that the dialogue was written by the creator of Dawson’s Creek. And that’s not a bad thing.
2. The whole series is like watching a point-and-click adventure game. Being a fan of such interactive fiction, Prison Break is a dream come true. Use a piece of oil-dipped comb, ballpoint ink, and sulfur to create a mini-bomb, thereby causing a distraction for the guards at precisely 4:32 pm! (I just made that one up.)
3. It’s a perfect show for those who feel that the world is just out to get them. Sometimes, my life is a series of seemingly endless stress, heartaches, and frustrations. This show is a perfect outlet to relieve my personal tensions and sadness; as I sometimes feel that I always seem to have the worst of luck.
I have yet to get Season 3 on DVD as it’s the season where Officer Bellick got stripped to his underwear. Unfortunately, he was pretty beat up in most of those scenes so they’re not really “pleasant” images to look at. Anyway, in the final episode of Season 2, we saw a glimpse of Bellick in such an unfortunate predicament in that dreadful Panamanian prison called Sona…
The following paragraph must be read out loud (yet quietly) in Michael Scofield’s voice…
This following paragraph is utterly random, yet not. The recent screenshots above show a local television’s watermark of “FOX41 WDRB.” While perusing the local news website of WDRB, I have uncovered a local weatherman who used to work for The Weather Channel. His name is Paul Emmick. If you notice, the last 3 letters of his name are “I,” “C,” and “K.” Wade Williams’ character’s last name is “Bellick” which also ends in “I,” “C,” and “K.” By staring at all three letters, I have decrypted The Company’s code. We now know the exact location of the last and final piece of Scylla!
*cue Prison Break’s heartpounding tun-tun-tun! then cut to commercial*
Seriously though, Paul Emmick has one of the most mesmerizing voices ever. I can listen to him talk about the lack of humidity in Vegas and actually be enthralled.
