Ex: in "Escape from Death Island" if the prisoners run the island, why don't they just leave?
They didn't have a sea-worthy boat available to them. They were waiting for the supply boat to come, so they could take it.
So much with that episode doesn't make sense. How many of the guards are former prisoners? If it's just the main two, why don't the rest of the guards know the difference? If it's all of them, why are they still guarding the other prisoners? Louie, the French magistrate, doesn't realize the Warden of the local French penal colony is a fake?
