Prison Break - Fourth Season  
I usually stay away from spoilers and there's a reason why I should never ever, under NO circumstances, allow myself to read them: I cry and whine and post nonsense.

Anyway, now that the damage is done...


He also confirmed that Michael might finally get some action this year and that he's getting his tattoo removed.

First part of the sentence? Yeah, yeah. Great. Good for him. Good for her. Enjoy. We They deserve it.

Second part of the sentence? Are they out of their mind? *throw a tantrum* It's not - only - about the tattoo love. What about plausibility (all right, this is Prison Break, forget plausibility) and symbolism and... blah. *second tantrum*

More spoilers at e!online

As a protest, fic self-promotion.

When the discomfort of one of the actors comes before plausibility (sorry, Wentworth!) it makes you wonder why we watch it!!

I might be wrong, of course!

Well, I keep on watching because I'm a pathetic fangirl who's still fond of most of the characters *sigh*

I guess there's the fact that it's not comfortable, takes time to apply and is not practical at all, but they managed during the first season, and I don't even ask that we see the darn thing as much as we did back then. Just... no removing.

I'm a Star Trek fan. Ever seen a Ferengi or a Klingon? That must be uncomfortable *g*

Ah yes! That'll be why I watch it too! But still...

I do agree that despite all the impracticalities they managed in the first season and I did miss seeing the tattoo after that. But tattoo removal doesn't happen overnight (unless you're Wentworth Miller, obviously!) so that's what strikes me as ridiculous. Shouldn't he be too busy righting wrongs and going after Gretchen? It just doesn't fit.

I've seen both and yes, that is discomfort! Makes an upper body tatt look easy! ;)

At some point - if the show hasn't been cancelled then - I'll probably be fed up with the nonsense and stop watching, but I'm not quite there yet.

so that's what strikes me as ridiculous

Absolutely. This is what I meant when I mentionned 'plausibility'. Maybe not the best word choice - vocabulary issue ;) I'm a good girl and willing to give them the benefit of the doubt to come up with an explanation, but well... it will require the hell of a temporary suspension of disbelief.
And aside from that, it feels to me like they're taking apart more and more of the little, or not so little, particularities of the show and it makes me sad. It would be fine if there was a purpose, but if it's just to make things easier, not good.

Nor me! But I might just keep watching in order to drool over Wentworth Miller if it doesn't get cancelled any time soon! Yes, I really am that shallow!

Oh no! 'Plausibility' was a great choice of word. It really isn't plausible that Michael would mess around getting his tatt removed when he thinks the love of his life is dead and he's going after her killer!

Unless, as you say, they come up with a good reason for it. Like identification issues, something like that?

And aside from that, it feels to me like they're taking apart more and more of the little, or not so little, particularities of the show and it makes me sad.

Absolutely. The first casualty was the connection between the brothers. I miss that so much.

It would be fine if there was a purpose, but if it's just to make things easier, not good.

Then they're cheating us, the fans who made Season 1 such a success, aren't they? :(

C'est étrange... Dès que j'ai eu fini de trépigner et de taper des poings, tu es la première personne à qui j'ai pensé ^_^
Je crois que j'ai mon top trois des trucs pour lesquels je suis dans le déni : la tête en boîte, Sucre passé à tabac (non, vraiment, ça m'a traumatisée : ils peuvent ce qu'ils veulent à la plupart des personnages, mais Sucre quoi...) et, donc, la disparition du tatouage.
