Dumping the dirt from season one. Exactly what Andy did. Banging the wall behind the sink during a commotion (thunder in SR). Covering up the hole under the table like Andy covered the one in his cell with the poster.
The young loud mouth new white gangster kid, just like Tommy in SR.
Lincoln being innocent...maybe, I don't know yet.
Scofield's behaviours, mannerisms and voice are almost identical to Andy's. Slow, methodical, doesn't say much, etc etc. I'm only on season one and like the previous poster said, I should keep a list going.
I think the creators of the show fell in love with SR, ripped off a tonne of King's ideas and made a feature length series. But basically you could watch SR one time and I'm guessing you'd get the same idea from PB.
I've enjoyed the show so far, mostly because of the direct connections to Shawshank, one of my favourite movies of all time.
