Prime Picks

Prison Break (FOX): Series Finale. Michael attempts to finally bring down the company and old friends return to help out. Runs two hours. Apparently, there will be another two episodes released direct to DVD over the summer as a movie that completely wraps up the series.

Numb3rs (CBS): Season Finale. Amita is kidnapped by a cult leader and only Charlie can figure out what the psychopath’s plans are for her.

Solid Selections
