A great deal from Amazon US here - I've been waiting for this for ages. $24 plus shipping, so only around £16 delivered.

Season one of Prison Break is great television. Here's the set-up. Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is framed and wrongfully convicted for assassinating the Vice President's brother. Lincoln's brother Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), who just happens to have designed Illinois' Fox River Penitentiary where Lincoln is on death row, hatches an elaborate escape plan. Michael's plan involves getting himself incarcerated in Fox River and smuggling the prison's blueprints by having them hidden in tattoos that cover his entire torso. Once inside, Michael must form alliances with a rogue's gallery of felons with their own sometimes unsavory motives. Meanwhile, on the outside, Lincoln's lawyer and one-time girlfriend Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney), pursued by Secret Service agents, attempts to unravel the conspiracy that sent her man to the slammer.
Prison Break is anchored by tight, suspenseful writing clearly relished by the largely little-known cast. Standouts include Robert Knepper as the murderer/pedophile T-Bag, who somehow makes such a despicable character likeable. Stacey Keach of Mike Hammer fame plays the warden-with-a-heart-of-gold, who clashes with Captain Brad Bellick (Wade Williams) over whether to rehabilitate the inmates or makes their lives more miserable. Peter Stormare, famous for his skills with a wood chipper in Fargo, turns in a deliciously menacing performance as mob boss John Abruzzi, while Amaury Nolasco's winsome Fernando Sucre shares a cell and secrets with Miller's Scofield. Watching the show one gets a sense that this is the opening salvo of Wentworth Miller's career, which will doubtless include roles as assassins, detectives, super heroes, and perhaps the champion of staring contests. Midway through the season it's explained that Scofield is a genius with an heightened sensitivity to other peoples' suffering, which sums up what makes the show so great--the mind-bendingly intricate plot is a framework for moments when people make others suffer and cope with the burden of their own suffering.

The six-disc set includes 22 addictive episodes, audio commentary on selected episodes, three featurettes, and alternate and deleted scenes. As with most TV shows on DVD, the "previously on Prison Break" intros can get tiresome, but that's what the fast forward button is for. --Ryan Boudinot

This is Region 1.

This is on the USA Amazon so the postage will be higher.

The postage is $6.98, as stated in Macdoona's post. In total it comes to just under £16 delivered. I thought it was a good deal! (If you can play region 1 DVDs, which most DVD players either can, or can be made to.)

[SIZE=2]damn thought this was region2[/SIZE]

Perfect, voted hot and rep given

I added item to basket and went to check out to get exact price.

I also did a currency conversion as you will spot in my earlier post to show exact uk price

I've changed the title so that it's clear that it's resion 1. Apologies for the misunderstanding robpears.

Take care what credit card you use as most charge a fee for currency conversion, don't they? I believe the Nationwide card doesn't. And IME xe.com's conversion rates are always better than you will actually get. can't see it coming to over £18, though, so you should be OK.

They either charge a fee, or give a worse exchange rate than the one on [url]www.xe.com[/url]. As you said, Nationwide will give the spot rate and not charge an exchange rate fee. :thumbsup:

Also, don't purchase items over £18 excl shipping as customs will have you.

Now that probably looks like I edited my post after reading yours, lol. (I didn't, honest)

Yeah right


I know, when I saved, I saw that you had updated

Quick money saving tip: buying something from amazon? Try to snipe yourself some amazon gift vouchers from eBay/eBid to build up the required balance. Speaking as someone who sold 3 amazon gift vouchers last week heres what you can expect to pay:

£43 for a £50 voucher
£13 for a £15 voucher
£8.50 for a £10 voucher

Bear in mind that you may not be able to use $ vouchers on UK amazon and vice versa - so ensure you are bidding on the right kind of voucher for the site you intend to use it on.

p.s. Prison Break rocks, I love it! I'd rather watch this telecined R1 than a crappy 4% sped up PAL version. But with all the 720p versions floating about, theres not much competition from "old" DVD.

very very tempting, but unfortunatly its region 1

Can you not hack your DVD player to make it multiregion?
