Popcorn & Coffee: Prison Break: Event Series Blu-ray


Fox Home Entertainment; 390 minutes;

Now available on Blu-ray from Twentieth Fox Home Entertainment is Prison Break: Event Series, featuring all nine exciting episodes from the reboot season (aka, the fifth season). Produced by Paul Scheuring, the series stars
Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Paul Adelstein, Robert Knepper and Rockmond Dunbar.

Prison Break: Event Series (also known as Prison Break: Resurrection) is a sequel mini-series to the series Prison Break that aired on Fox from 2005 to 2009.

Picking up seven years after season four finale, Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell is mysteriously released from prison and is given a picture of Michael in the Ogygia prison.

Since T-Bag has now forgiven everybody for sending him back to prison, he tracks down Michael's brother, Lincoln Burrows, and gives him the picture. After telling Michael's wife Sara about the picture, Lincoln, along with C-Note, travel to Sana'a, Yemen to see for himself if Michael is actually alive.

This is Prison Break, so of course Michael is somehow alive, sporting several new mysterious tattoos, and must once again find a way to escape from a prison, as well as unraveling another "hard to follow" conspiracy plot.

The only featurette is "A Return Home: The Making of Prison Break Event Series."


Final Thoughts: Wow! Who would have thunk it that the canceled Prison Break series would be brought back to life with a shorten fifth season (aka, event series), especially with how the fourth season ended.

While I recall seeing advertisements for the original series run, I never actually watched the series until I recently discovered it on Netflix. Let's just say the phrase 'binge watching' would help explain my experience with the series, as I viewed the original four seasons over the span of a month. Let's just say I was more than ready to watch the 'event series' when it finally arrived on Blu-ray.

Prison Break: Event Series has a different look and feel than the previous seasons, which is actually a good thing here, as it avoids being stale like "The X-files: Even Series" was last year. The acting for the entire cast is in par with the rest of the series.

The picture & sound quality are topnotch for all the episodes. The only downside I found on the Blu-ray set is that there is only one featurette. I wish there were deleted scenes, bloopers, and commentaries.

Overall, I enjoyed watching the Prison Break: Event Series Blu-ray. Sure, it has several plot holes, but it doesn't take away the fun of watching it.
