Sometimes it's easy to see when a TV show has jumped the shark.

Amaury Nolasco, star of Fox's highly budgeted 'Prison Break,' says he thinks his show ended at the right time, after its series finale this past May.

"I think it just ran its course," Nolasco told Inside TV at Monday's 'Star Trek' DVD and Blu-Ray premiere party in Hollywood. "I mean, how many more prisons can we actually break from? I think we got out on a high, before it became, 'Oh, really?'"Sometimes it's easy to see when a TV show has jumped the shark.

Amaury Nolasco, star of Fox's highly budgeted 'Prison Break,' says he thinks his show ended at the right time, after its series finale this past May.

"I think it just ran its course," Nolasco told Inside TV at Monday's 'Star Trek' DVD and Blu-Ray premiere party in Hollywood. "I mean, how many more prisons can we actually break from? I think we got out on a high, before it became, 'Oh, really?'"

'Prison Break,' which lasted four seasons, whimpered to a close in ratings, attracting 5.3 million viewers per episode -- just about half the audience's size at its second-season peak.

Nolasco said Monday, "I don't think there is going to be a reunion, because Michael [Wentworth Miller's character] is dead, unless they brought him back. I mean, they brought [back] Sara [Sarah Wayne Callies], who had her head cut off. They can bring anybody back."

Nolasco summarizes of 'Prison Break,' "It was one of those beautiful experiences, and it opened so many doors for me."

The show's four-year history saw one of its stars, Lane Garrison, be forced to leave the show for felony jail time, and had a 2006 spin-off series, 'Prison Break: Proof of Innocence,' developed for Web and mobile content. The show drew good reviews after its 2005 premiere, with Entertainment Weekly calling it one of the best new shows of that year.

Nolasceo will appear in next year's 'The Rum Diary,' starring Johnny Depp, and December's 'Armored,' starring Matt Dillon, and is reportedly attached to an A&E drama pilot, 'The Quickening,' with Radha Mitchell.
