SendIt also have the Season 1 & 2 boxset for £49.89, making both seasons just under £25 each - not a bad deal if you want both, as the cheapest for Season 2 by itself is currently £32.99. :)

It wasn't their fault - they showed it exactly the way it was shown in the US - there was a 2 month gap there too, due to the writer's strike. :)

No, and you can blame Mr Murdoch for that!

Season 1 is definitely the best, voted hot.

It's worth also looking into amazon.com.
They're selling Season 1 and Season 2 for $40.99 each. I bought Season 2, it cost a touch over £20 including delivery, and took about a week to arrive.
I never have quite worked out why most high street stores sell these seasons for about £50 each. No other 20+ part series (such as 24) is priced this ridiculously...
Mind you, having seen how bad Season 3 is, I doubt they'll be able to do the same rip-off when that comes out on DVD.

Firstly, I don't think it is worth the £5 saving buying from Amazon.com for a couple of reasons.

1) Region 1 discs. I no that multi-region players are literally everywhere, but there is still a risk that one day you might want them played on some dvd-player somewhere that has no chance to play anything but region 2 discs.

2) NTSC video format. It seems insane to buy a DVD whose video is NTSC formatted, when there exist PAL versions available. Of course, you might be playing it on a PC, or a normal DVD player and TV that can output and accept (respectively) an NTSC video signal. But even if that is true, you still end up with a 480 vertical resolution rather than 576.

3) Delivery time and possible customs nonsense.

I know these are possibly small, insignificant things. But, then again, £5 must also be deemed small and insignificant. It's just my opinion (e-pinion?), but I think stating that saving a few squid by purchasing from an American supplier is nuts. If it's £20, maybe. Of course, this argument is not applicable to DVDs without a PAL, region 2 counterpart currently available. Also, it is not applicable to HD-DVDs or region-free Blu-rays, as their video format (res. and fps) remains the same across all nations' releases.

Secondly, the retail stores charge ridiculous prices as they are being rogered by all the online, overhead-less legends, that I like to call e-tailers. Just flatten the high-street stores, I say (except clothes and food places), and plant some god-damned trees, while we forget about how many e-tailer warehouses are popping up all over the greenfield and brownfield sites.

Voted hot. Season 3 is OK, I thought. Equally as unbelievable as the others, and equally as fun. Lincoln's got about 7 brain cells (maybe also Dominic Purcell?), and Michael just walks about talking under his breath at people all the time. I wish there were less sh*tty soaps, like Hollyoaks, and more of this entertaining, non-depressing stuff.

Season 1 was "Must see" television. I watched it religously every Monday. :geek:

Season 2 was "Okay", they were padding it out a bit. :|

I haven't seen Season 3, not fussed if I do or not.

I'm a bit confused.:| Is it the end of season 3 on sky after only 13 episodes? I thought there were meant to be over 20 episodes like the season 1 and 2.

There were, but there was a strike of the WGA (basically the writer's union) which meant that no new scripts were written between about November 2007 and February 2008. Virtually no show made it to a full 20+ episodes. Prison Break was one of the few that even made it past 8 or 9. So episode 13 had to be re-edited to make it look as much like a season "ending" as possible. :)

It's also why there was no new season of '24' this year - we won't be getting that until January 2009 now.

Thanks for the info! I agree with the others that Season 1 was the best.
Hope they don't drag it on and on, season after season,like Lost, just to make money while the plot gets weaker and weaker.

As for "24" they should have stopped after season 5. How many more " Bad days" can Jack take?

I heard "Wentworth" on the radio last week, he said that he is contracted to 7 seasons. :w00t:
#15
I hope they finish it after the next lot - Season 3 has already felt pretty tired, and there's just not much story left. Another 13 episodes would be enough I reckon.

Not watched it avidly but, the leading male in it is seriously hot! Wow! Watch it just for him!

Umm, it might just be a homosexual male, mightn't it?

I have to admit 1 is 99% better than 2, but 2 is still good tv, I was hooked on every ep.

I do those long stretches too, or I used to. It's the best way to do it. Especially with 24. It's a bizarre idea to watch a single day in the life of Jack Bauer over a period of 6 months. It just ruins it. It's just a case of whether you can wait until June '09 to watch Season 7 over one weekend.

P.S. If Prison Break lasts Wentworth's full contract, I will vomit all over my Season 1 DVDs.

What are they going to break out of in season 7, a retirement home?

Hot off the presses!
Prison Break has been commissioned for a fourth season by Fox, ending speculation that it would be cancelled.

Variety announced that the network has ordered 22 more episodes of the show, despite a poor critical response to the third season - shortened to 13 episodes because of the strike - and falling viewing figures.

Prison Break's co-executive producer Nick Santora heralded the news on his Myspace blog: "We got word on Wednesday that we are officially picked up by the network for Season 4. This is great news. We are all very excited. We are moving offices onto the Fox Studio Lot next week."

Hmm...
