I really liked this show when I watched the original broadcast in HD, but this is a review of the actual product (which I received today), not the series itself.

It comes in a thick plastic case which might be used for four discs, but there are only two discs. How do they fit 13 episodes on only two single-sided discs? First, they replace the 5.1 channel high fidelity soundtrack with two-channel stereo. Then they compress the video a lot more, and it shows, more or less. It actually looks better than I thought it would, but compression artifacts are obvious in the details, such as the weave of his shirt, or the color banding in the sky of a rising sun. All the commentaries seem to be here, however, sometimes two per episode, and there are three video features as well, probably from the original DVD release.

For reasons unknown, the discs are in two loose paper sleeves. It may be that the distributor intends to save money by using the same thick plastic box for all their releases requiring more or less discs (and sleeves).

The ideal Daybreak on DVD would be on Blu-ray, so that I could see a version that looks at least as good as the original broadcast. Second best would be the previous four-disc release. Last of all is this two-disc set, though it's still worth watching if you haven't seen the show yet.

Day Break was a terrific show, I never understood why it didn't catch on. It's kind of a blend between "24" and "Groundhog Day", and felt as fresh and fun to watch as those both did in the beginning. While the show was cancelled, all the episodes were completed, and the series feels complete. In a way maybe it's better the show didn't last, as it never had time to grow stale. Don't miss it!

I watched this show online when it was on the air. The show was great.

This DVD set, however, is the worst DVD set I have ever had the displeasure of trying to watch. The sound is awful. It's very hard to hear what the characters are saying over the background noise and music. The video is very grainy and it looks like someone filmed it with a cheapo home video camera. The lights are too bright, and the darks are muddy and hard to distinguish.

I know this show looks and sounds better then what is represented on this set. Someone decided to re-release this to make a quick dollar and screw over consumers. Do not buy this set. You will be sorry. I am. This show deserves a much better release.

Day Break was one of the finest contemporary series ever. Cerebral in nature, a real thought provoking series that really inspires one to elucidate the flow of the story every minute. Most were only able to view 6 full-framed broad-casted episodes with commercials along with those fortunate enough to have caught the remaining seven widescreen episodes on a computer monitor over the Internet.

One of the many unique aspects of this fascinating show is the brilliance in its casting. The cast consists of a broad spectrum of ethnicity that delightfully, does NOT have anything to do with the storyline. Just fine actors playing their parts to perfection.

I never imagined I would ever see this series again. It will be a pure delight to view the entire series commercial free & in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1. I think everyone will have varying opinions interpreting each episode all the way to the very last scene! Enjoy!!!

I really enjoyed the show but the quality of this particular DVD release is lacking. As described in other reviews it comes in a thick DVD case which should be able to accommodate the four or five Disc that you would expect with 13 episodes plus the extras. When you open the case there are 2 Discs in paper sleeves that sit in a pocket of the case. Very odd. After reading the small print on the DVD packages I did find that it states there are 2 Discs while the DVD packaging gives the impression that it would contain more. What a shame since it potentially had a chance to be a very nice set with the commentary extras.
The good news is that this set was found at Target for $5. At that price it might be worth buying since the show was entertaining and did have some closure.

Format: DVD
Day Break (2006) is an extremely complicated crime drama that was cancelled after only six of the thirteen episodes in the series had aired. The whacky central premise is that Brett Hopper (Taye Diggs), a police detective accused of murder, is continually reliving the same day. Using information that he learns from his past experiences, Hopper attempts to solve the murder, and discover the secret to what seems to be an ever expanding mystery.

The entire series, including the seven unaired episodes are in this set. Due to its non-linear constantly evolving plotline, and focus on the time element, Day Break lends itself extremely well to DVD, where the episodes can be viewed one after another, and the characters and plot elements are perhaps easier to remember and keep track of.

The story begins on what is called "Day 2" with Brett Hopper waking up at 6:18am in the apartment of his girlfriend Rita Shelten (Moon Bloodgood). Hopper soon discovers that he is wanted for the murder of district attorney Alberto Garza, a man he has never met. While trying to avoid capture by the police, Hopper turns to various people for help, including his current partner Andrea Battle (Victoria Pratt), his sister Jennifer Mathis (Meta Golding), Damien Ortiz (Ramon Rodriguez) a criminal informant, and Chad Shelten (Adam Baldwin) his ex-partner, and Rita's ex-husband.

A detailed plot synopsis would be a challenge and take too long, as numerous events, even the death of various characters, are frequently negated when Hopper's day "resets" to "Day 2". One long continuous nonlinear adventure, Day Break has to be seen in chronological order, to be truly understood and appreciated for the amazing experience that it is.
