Description

Lincoln Burrows (Dominic Purcell) is an inmate on death-row for the killing of the brother of the Vice President of the United States, a murder he vows he did not commit but only his brother Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) believes him. Michael takes the extreme action of getting himself arrested. With the blueprints of the jail disguised in a tattoo that encompasses his body, Michael attempts to create a support network in prison that will allow his brother and himself to escape. Fellow prisoners looking to escape and willing to help Michael and his brother include ex-mob boss Abruzzi, C-Note, Sucre and T-Bag. Despite having bonded with prison governor Pope (Stacey Keach), Michael has attracted the suspicions of the menacing Captain Bellick (Wade Williams). Meanwhile, on the outside the brothers' childhood friend and lawyer Veronica Donovan (Robin Tunney) works to uncover the conspiracy that put Lincoln in jail. PRISON BREAK first aired in 2005 and quickly became hugely successful around the world thanks to the tension filled, beat-the-clock storyline and cunning plot twists, making it an intriguing combination of the prison drama OZ and the real-time secret service drama 24. Features all 22 episodes of the first season.

Synopsis
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.

"[I]t is surprisingly successful, the delayed-gratification plotting steadily parceling out crucial information without letting the pace flag."
Sergio Angelini (1 Aug 2006, p.98)
Ultimate DVD
5 stars out of 5 -- "With an excellent cast and fantastic scripting, which never slackens its pace and features twists and turns that will keep you glued to the screen..."
