5.0 out of 5 stars Prison Break series four excellent drama, 3 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prison Break - Season 4 (plus Final Break) [DVD] (DVD)
The whole of the world that is Prison Break has been an interesting and creative project with clever writing and production. This final series four is one of the best and all the stops have been pulled out on this series.
There are a lot of plot twists and there is plenty of meat on the bones in terms of story. It is an excellent series.
Series four concerns a thing called "Scylla" that is a sort of "black book" of the "Company". It requires a series of electronic cards to unlock it and gain access to everything about the "Company". Former enemies are united together in a solid friendship with one goal in mind.
Homeland security under Don Self employ Michael and Lincoln and friends to get Scylla in return for their ultimate freedom. They work at finding the cards and copying them.
Michael suffers a hypothalmic hamartoma. Meanwhile he discovers that his mother is still alive and used be in "The company" who also wants Scylla and was responsible for all sorts of things that happened to Michael and Lincoln. The plot thickens as Michael tries to get Scylla himself. Lincoln reluctantly tries to get Scylla for the Company to get his son back which causes friction with Michael. Sara is not dead and Michael is re united with her as everyone works to get Scylla and bring the company down. There is a tragic ending.

The last two episodes form a mini movie "Prison Break - The final break" This makes a really good special edition of the series and further explains the final ending of the whole saga. This story has its own individualism that is crucially linked to the earlier episodes. This is a terrific piece of television drama and the pace and production are excellent.

The best way to see this series is on DVD where you can go straight to the next episode if you want to. Sometimes the temptation to dip into the next episode can be too much. But you can do that with a DVD set. Unlike TV weekly transmission where you have to wait a whole week to find out what happens next.

The series is exciting and gripping with cliff hanger type endings on each episode. The scripts are very clever and succeed very well at stretching a story over so many episodes.
The acting and direction are excellent and this is a quality production of television. There is originality within the whole concept. There is no doubt that this series deserves praise.
