TV Tonight: "Prison Break" and "K-Ville"

TV Tonight: "Prison Break" and "K-Ville"

Fox is using Sunday's Emmy awards to dive headfirst into the Fall TV season. Technically, I suppose things kicked off with Friday's premiere of "Nashville," but tonight the heat is really on with the start of the season's first new scripted drama and the return of a fan favorite.

"Prison Break" kicks things off at 8 p.m., and I know a lot of Buzz readers are ready for it. I always thought of "Prison Break" as a show with a premise that could last only one season — two at most — so I'm amazed to see it headed into its third installment, seemingly stronger than ever. This season finds the guys needing to break out again, this time because they're trapped in a notorious Panamanian prison, and I'm curious to find out how they squirm out of their predicament this time.

Tonight also brings the premiere of "K-Ville," a show I'm finding myself rooting for despite being somewhat disappointed by the pilot. The show is filmed in New Orleans, and its cast and crew have been exploring the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina both on screen and in their daily lives. The physical and psychological effects of disaster lie at the heart of "K-Ville," and no doubt there's a lot of emotional territory to be mined there. But the pilot wrapped up stories too quickly for my taste and fell victim to a hearty dose of cop-show cliches. A bright spot, though, was Anthony Anderson's performance as disillusioned cop Martin Boulet, which earned the show at least a few more weeks on my viewing schedule.

After watching PB last night, I was a bit disappointed! NO sarah, and who is the emily chick? I really loved this show, I hope that the writers pick it up this season, because the premiere was so-so.

i really hope K-Ville steps it up b/c its a really great premise and NOLA's story NEEDS to be told. i'm not from there but i just want it to get the limelight it deserves. we need to care about new orleans!!!

As far as I know Sarah and the original actress will be back later in the season. The actress that plays her is/was on maternity leave and I heard that they're gonna have her character kidnapped. just what I heard, though. I love the Micheal/Sarah story too, so it'd be a HUGE mistake if they killed her off.

Yeah PB will not be good without Sarah ... i'll try to stick with it for a few episodes but ultimately i only watched it for the love story ... i would watch it even if they replaced her with another actress but i just can't do it if they kill her off, though i do love wentworth miller!

I watched K-Ville last night, and wasn't completely blown away. It's not really my kind of show though, so it would have to be spectacular in order to hook me. I hope it stays on the air though, because I am sure it grabbed some fans last night.

I agree with what was said about K-Ville. I saw the pilot on Fox's on demand player/website and it definitely has potential and the twist at the end of the episode was very interesting.
