When Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is falsely accused of murder and sent to prison on death row, his brother, Michael (Wentworth Miller), resolves on doing anything to ensure his release. Armed with a blueprint of Fox River, hidden within an intricate tattoo that covers his body, Michael intentionally gets himself incarcerated in the same facility in order to set his escape plan - which also happens to involve some of the prison's most notorious inmates - in motion. Meanwhile, Lincoln's former flame Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney), sets to work on his appeal case, which yields shocking results on the truth behind his incarceration. With a stellar cast and fantastic production values, this is one series not to be missed. If you're sceptical about the show's plot, the emotional impact of the relationship between the brothers combined with the suspense of the escape are an unbeatable combination and will have you hooked in no time. If you missed it first time round or quite rightly want to revisit the non-stop action of Season One, which culminates in a breathtaking finale, now is the time to get it on DVD! Complete with a wealth of extra features, this is one TV boxset definitely worth owning!

Editors Note
Note Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is the victim of a political conspiracy that is determined to bring him down, and the only one who can save him is his brother, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller). A prison engineer, Michael gets himself arrested and locked up in the same prison where his brother sits on death row, intending to use his intimate knowledge of the jail to help them both escape. Unfortunately, Michael isn't prepared for what he finds on the inside--but he remains determined to see his plan through. This collection includes the entire first season.

ReviewSource If Magazine DVD Review
Review The ending was very interesting and it looks like it sets up some serious confrontations next episode with the bad Secret Service agent and could lead to some more revelations about his innocence or knowing this show everyone will ignore that he is being hunted and will be back to square one. A more interesting question is now that the show has been renewed for another season, will a prison break take place this season or will they hold it off until the following season?

Review Emboldened by the durability of "24," Fox trots out two serials this fall that, in success, will be difficult to extend into a second season. "Prison Break" is the more intriguing of these sha-la-la-live-for-today dramas (the other being "The OC"-like "Reunion"), thanks principally to a strong cast led by Wentworth Miller, who purposely gets tossed into prison hoping to spring his death-row brother. Still, emulating "24"'s delicate balancing act is full of potential tripwires, and the surplus of moving parts in the two-hour premiere doesn't make entirely clear how "Break" will escape triggering them.
