Not trying to be biased, but this show is ALMOST as good as 24. I have the first season on DVD, and I don't want to give anything away on the whole story, but it IS ONE OF THE BEST plots that I've ever seen incorporated into one season's worth of a TV show. It absolutely amazed me as to how they fit an entire 22 episodes in a prison. Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell are the ABSOULTE best actors that could be made into the lead actors for this show along with the stunning supporting cast that is also in the show. I am not being biased. It IS that good of a show.

I realize that season 2 is not out yet on Blu-ray, but I pray that it is soon. I don't know if you have been able to watch season 3 yet on TV, but it is the WORST season so far out of the three. If you like season 3, you will LOVE THE FIRST TWO.

Absolutely a must buy!!! This is a great drama.

EDIT: Prison Break was nominated for its first award, the 2005 People's Choice Award for Favorite New TV Drama. The other nominees in the same category were Commander in Chief and Criminal Minds. Prison Break won the award in January 2006.

While I quoted PS34EVER because I agree with him, this post actually goes out to the OP.

If you're in to super-realistic stuff, PB is not the show for you, but if you like suspense and great drama, S1 is for you!

I was planning on getting PB:S1 on Blu-ray next year, but with some of the deals out there, I might be convinced to get it earlier...

I agree with PS34EVER...if you like what you see on season 3 then you will LOVE season 1!

This is a show that I would definitely buy on Blu to replace my SD version if the reviews are solid enough. I just wish they were a little easier to find with the release date being so close and all....

Prison Break Season 1 is better than anyone season of 24 IMO. I feel like each season is getting weaker though. 24 has started to really go downhill as well. I'm not sure I like that they brought back Almeida as the bad guy...we'll see how it goes, but there's always someone on the inside in 24 and it is just really getting to me. I think the season with Marwon was where it really started to bug me. They kept missing him by seconds and it happened several times. Ok sorry to go off on a tangent.

Prison Break was originally just 13 episodes start to finish, they escaped and that was it, home free.

Around episode 8, the ratings were so good they extended it, then gave it another season and they've pretty much been winging it every since.

I never watched Season 1, but one lazy Saturday afternoon FX was airing a marathon of season 2. I got hooked and bought season 1 on DVD. And I still haven't watched it! But I'll buy subsequent seasons on Blu, and I may replace my S1 if a good deal comes along.

Prison Break - I watch it, but the first three seasons of 24 absolutely blow the first three seasons of Prison Break out of the water.

Although to be honest, it's unfair to put ANY show's first three seasons up against the first three of 24. I thought 4 was weak, but 5 was just as good as 1,2 and 3.

I wish Fox would do S1 of 24 on Blu-ray - because that's the only one in 2.0 stereo.

Yup, Season 4 was weak, but each of the first three seasons of 24 and season 5 are all miles better than any season of Prison Break. It took them a long time to get chemistry together in that show. It took one episode for 24 to do it.

The last 7 hours of Season 3 of 24 are the best 7 episode run of any TV show in the history of TV, beginning with Jack having to take Chappelle to the train yard.

Is this thread to compare 24 to Prison Break or just to recommend Prison Break?

I would definitely recommend Prison Break Season One. Good suspense and story. This looked great on upconverted DVD... I can only imagine how good it will look on Blu. I would buy it if I were you. You won't be disappointed.

This is what I keep telling people why they're putting out current seasons and not the back catalog

It is much much harder to get people to buy something like a TV box again, ESPECIALLY when the SRP is $40 higher than they originally paid

It's true - you've got to really like a TV show to replace it
I'm glad I haven't bought any Lost on DVD, I've just borrowed them.
24 I have all seasons up to Season 5. I didn't buy S6 because I don't buy DVD's anymore.

I would replace 1, 2, 3 and 5 with Blu-ray. S4 I'm not such a big fan of.

I'm really tempted to pick this up along with the rest of Amazon BOGO offers.

The only problem is, I don't know if this is really worth it compared to the DVD version, is there going to be a huge upgrade over it?

Personally, I think that show was so suspenseful, it's a lot less interesting the 2nd time around. I was addicted to it, though, and just couldn't stop watching. Now that I know the ending, it's just not the same, I guess.
