  FANTASTIC!!

If you love 24 you will love Prison Break... the twist and turns are phenomenal and will keep you on the edge of the seat for the entire series. It's the best most original series out there. BUY IT! :)

  Without doubt, THE best thing on T.V. ever!!!

Prison Break is hands down the best programme i have ever seen on t.v. by far. I'm a fan of 24 and other long running american action series' but Prison Break blows them away.
Season 1 is the best, but the following 3 are also brilliant.
The storyline is amazing and the casting was perfect for each and every character. In particular, Wentworth Millar as Michael Schofield, no matter what t.v. or film work he picks up in the future, he'll always be Michael Schofield, in the same sense that Kiether Sutherland is Jack Bauer and Jared Padelecki is Sammy Winchester (Supernatural).
Each episode will leave you desperate for the next, and if you start this box set on a Sunday, i reckon you'll be pulling a sickie on the Monday just to stay at home and continue watching.

If you don't own this box set yet, buy it today, and take tomorrow off!
Enjoy.

There have been plenty prison break movies over the years but, to the best of my knowledge, nothing similar had ever been attempted on TV. Following the incarceration of his brother Michael Scholfield holds up a bank so that he can enter Fox River as a prisoner and free his brother.

Using blue prints tattooed all over his body Michael plans and attempts to execute a daring plan over the course of this 22 hour first series with edge of your seat moments every episode . Featuring a fantastic cast of well rounded characters and plethora of interesting subplots Prison Break (well this first season at least) is a unique television experience.

For the first two seasons, this show was one of the best things that has ever been on television, with the last two seasons being entertaining but going slightly off the rails. This first season is one of the best ever 'escape from prison' stories and it is well served by fine treatment on DVD.

  Amazing! If you like action and drama - this is the show!

Prison Break is by far one of the most well written pieces of TV in years!
When it was first advertised I thought it wasn't going to be any good so I didn't watch it. I walked in when it was on TV about 3 or 4 episodes in to it and after 5 minutes, I was 100% hooked. The cast do an incredible job of making you feel each emotion and - unlike a lot of shows - you don't see a nice side of everyone.
Well cast and well acted. The whole 4 seasons are good but season 1 is the best in my opinion as it is original and you have no idea what's going to happen. Give it a shot!!

  Great

I absolutely loved this when I first saw it. I think things slowly went downhill with the other series, although still good. It just changed direction (obviously) but series one is a classic in my eyes. It lacked a few things and that's why I have given it a 4, but still, it's great and worth a buy.

  Fantastic

Prison Break season one is quite possibly one of the most gripping and action packed TV Series' in recent memory. Packed with exciting twists and a thrilling story, this is really not something to be missed. Everyone should check this out.
