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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.Read more ›

Love, love, loved this. Very worth your money. Keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat. I usually figure things out pretty well and this one had me baffledPublished 9 days ago by Angela M.
Interesting show. The show and concept is good, but the same day repeating is getting confusing. I may need to watch this series a second time to understand it fully. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Deborah S
I wish it had more to the show then just waking up and repeating the same day.Published 4 months ago by Tina
This is one of the best (and most underrated) TV shows I've ever seen. I've re-watched it multiple times now and I'm still finding more things that I missed the first time. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Tara Kidd
