Still an enthralling series!
on 31 December 2014
This set features 6 DVDs containing the complete Prisoner series which was first released in 1967 plus lots of interesting extras which has been very effectively transferred to DVD. The visual quality is very good and the aspect ratio is quoted as 1.33:1, even on automatic picture setting on my 16:1 TV the discs are very watchable and don't have any unfilled border. The sound is Dolby 5.1 but there are no subtitles. The total running time of all 6 discs is around 850 minutes.
These discs capture the atmosphere of The Prisoner series perfectly and will bring memories flooding back. On most of the discs there 3 episodes per disc but, on the final disc, there's lots of extra material including production crew commentaries, trailers, archive material plus, previously unreleased behind the scenes material which is a real treasure trove for fans.
In summary, a quality transfer to DVD of an enigmatic series which was in many ways more perceptive about the future than we can ever have known at the time. Recommended.
