I'd like to say that I'm very dissatisfied with the second season. I knew it was inevitable after they got out of the prison. To their credit I think the writers have been very clever and sprung some good suprises on us but for the most part I feel like it's a losing battle, the show just cannot overcome its limited premise (which seems to be a problem for a lot of shows these days).
I get the sense that the core/diehard viewership are fine watching anything with the characters we got to know in season 1 (T-Bag, Lincoln, Bellick, Dr. Sara, etc) but I feel (and I suspect a lot of casual fans) that they enjoyed the setting and dynamics of the prison and when that vanished it's like the show turned into something else entirely.
I personally have no faith in news that Scheuring has planned out the story up to season 3 in advance. Yeah he can plan all he wants, that doesen't mean it's going to click with viewers.
