Why you need to see ”Prison Break”

What It’s About With his brother (Dominic Purcell) on death row for murdering the vice president’s brother, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller, right) gets himself sent to the same jail as the first step in a daring escape plan.

Why It’s Worthy A breakout performance by Miller — you might recognize him from The Human Stain or Mariah Carey’s ”We Belong Together” video — anchors this fast-paced, unapologetically farfetched thriller.
