I have enjoyed this last finale season 4, it's as good as the three seasons only more twists and turns, more drama, more action, more characters, Iam really shocked with the shocking ending, I am not expecting that, but still a very good season, I just wish it's not the last season, but oh well, it made me entertained all these years. The only thing I have hated and not fair about this dvd release is, it does not have subtitles of any kind, unlike the three other seasons, this is too bad for the hearing impaired followers and all those that needed at least an english subtitles.

I hate all the people that are just talking [...] about prison break and how it should have ended after the first or third season... this is the last season of prison break and the writers went all out with a GREAT last season! full of twists and turns! this is really great to watch and enjoy... dont pay attention to the people that give this a 1.. this is a great buy and its worth it!!(best price you'll get.. I've tried to find a better offer but I couldnt!)

Sure, season 4 didn't always follow the rules of logic but since when do we expext that rollercoaster-high-octane entertainment should live up to intense scientific scrutiny?
Prison Break 4 has been one of the most exciting, thrilling and shout-out-loud-in-front-of-your-telly series that I have ever seen. Add to that the fact that season 4 also brought us one of the coolest characters living through an intense emotional storyline (I am off course talking about Mr. Alexander Mahone) played by an actor who performs so intense it makes you gasp for breath...and you have perfect television. I have loved watching 4 years of PB, it's been a great ride!

I have been a fan of Prison Break from the begining and this last season is a great way to end the show! Almost perfect in everyway.
The only thing I didnt like was that in season 1 they said that Mike's mom died of liver cancer, while in this season they say a brain tumor.
And the fact that they removed all of Mike's tatoos in about 15 seconds was a little angering too.
Besides those minor things Season 4 brings all the action and adventure from past seasons back in full force!

In conclusion: there are a couple of mediocre episodes but nothing to really complain about. Its a great season with a great cast and you gotta see how it ends!

The Fox series Prison Break debuted in 2005 and had a first season that was intelligently written, intelligently executed, and endlessly exciting. The series miraculously had two more seasons (with season three being cut short due to the writer's strike) and Fox announced the fourth season would be the final season. I absolutely love this show, but the idea to end it was a good one. Prison Break was a one-season concept that made two seasons work but just got more and more ludicrous as it went on, while never failing to be entertaining. With that said, the fourth season is very entertaining. It's this season that the writer's throw all logic out the window. Character's who were dead return, character's who were forgotten come out of nowhere; the writer's of this season seem to have had one rule for writing; if it can go wrong (no matter how implausible), make sure it does.

We've followed these character's as they escaped from prison (season one), ran from the law (season 2), and had to escape from another prison (season 3). In season 4, they have to break in to a building. Sounds interesting, right?

Everyone has escaped from Sona, the prison in Panama that housed the characters for the third season. Now in Los Angeles, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller), his brother Lincoln Burroughs (Dominic Purcell), girlfriend Sarah Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), Sucre (Amaury Nolasco), Brad Bellick (Wade Williams), and former FBI-agent Alexander Mahone (William Fichtner) are recruited by Homeland Security agent Don Self (Michael Rappaport) for a top-secret operation to help take down The Company for good. With an offer of immunity for everyone on the table, the group agrees to help Self retrieve Scylla, the Company's little black book.

All of the characters are back, including everybody's favorite villain T-Bag (Robert Knepper), who (as usual) has a different agenda than the rest of the group. Also, in a much larger role, is Leon Russom as General Jonathan Krantz, but more on that in a moment.

Season four will have you shaking your head several times throughout simply because of how completely ridiculous many of the plot twists are, but it ranks high on the excitement scale. As for how it ends...Well, those who have followed this show and these characters for years will be divided, but how else could they have ended it? The ending works, but could have been executed a little better.

Now, on another note...I'm not the first person to complain about the weak, anything goes-style of writing on Prison Break, but I wish to mention that the writer's never failed to write strong main characters. It's hard to deny this is a show with strong characterization that has a knack for establishing characters for us to care about and establishing characters for us to hate only to trick us into liking them later. But, I will not let the actors escape without credit.

Prison Break, during its run, was never honored for the actor's it had on its show. One doesn't have to even watch this show very long to see that this was a shame. Wentworth Miller, for example, is the only person I can see as Scofield. He's quietly menacing, committed, and charismatic...Not to say he doesn't overdo it sometimes, but he balances the tough and emotional in a way most actors would not. If one denies the range of Wade Williams as Bellick, watch all four seasons of this show and tell me how Bellick goes from one of the most unlikeable characters on the show to a very sympathetic one in such a short span of time. Even Purcell, who never had to do much in the series besides look tough and be intimidating when needed, embodies Burroughs. That description of his acting is pretty much all the character needs to do, so it all fits. Finally, we have Robert Knepper whose performance as T-Bag only got better with each season. If this had been a theatrical film as opposed to a TV series, Knepper would have received an Oscar nomination. If not for fan-reaction to Knepper's portrayal of the devious, depraved T-Bag he likely would've been killed off at the end of season one. Knepper takes a relatively simple character and just molds him into one of the most memorable characters I've ever seen on a television series. It's no easy task to take a character that frequently betrays and hurts the character's you care about and make him likeable and every moment Knepper is onscreen, he'll keep your attention focused there. Finally, Russom as the General has a very menacing look coupled with a deep, foreboding voice...He makes a great antagonist for Scofield's gang. All of the other actor's are great too, but this has already taken up a large majority of my review.

There's not much to write about the fourth season of a television show. If you're reading this, you've likely seen the previous three seasons or you've already seen all four. If you're a fan, this season is definitely worth checking out if only to see the last hurrah of these character's you've watched for so long. While Prison Break lost some IQ points along the way, it never lost its ability to keep your heart racing and keep your affection for its main set of characters. With that said, if you're a fan of the series...This is essential.

GRADE: B

This season just did not keep my interest the way previous seasons did. I think it lasted one season too long, and they were grasping at ways to keep these people in trouble. I never did understand what Scylla was, or why everyone wanted it so badly, and (warning, spoiler ahead) it was just disappointing that Scofield died so soon after everyone worked together to obtain their pardons. Also, Bagwell should have been killed. Not sent back to prison, just killed. He was disgusting and offensive and annoying in every scene he was in, and the actor who played him did a FANTASTIC job of portraying a horrid example of humanity, because I have seen him in other roles and he was nothing like Bagwell.

but back to the show in general, the first few seasons were interesting, kept my attention, and I wanted them to WIN! By this season, I kept having to back up to find out what had just happened bc it wasn't keeping my attention, and instead of wanting them to WIN I just wanted it to get done with. The only reason I'm going to watch the Final Break is to find out (warning, spoiler ahead) how and when and why Scofield died.

This has been one of my favorite TV shows ever! I didn't like the ending though. It's to bad the show has ended.

I've read a lot of reviews that criticize Prison Break for being unrealistic but c'mon can you name a single series that is true to life? If so, then it was probably boring as hell. 24, which was a lot like Prison Break, had enough holes to drive an 18-wheeler through but was very entertaining and isn't that what TV is all about, entertainment? If you want total realism, watch a documentary. But for edge of your seat excitement watch Prison Break, the most exciting TV series ever. Ignore the naysayers who like to dissect every episode and just enjoy the show for what it is. It's funny, but a lot of the same people who complained about the show being non-realistic also complained about the ending which was very realistic. Perhaps they would have preferred an ending more like Lost or The Sopranos. Let's face it, Prison Break is more entertaining than 90% of the crap TV masquerades as entertainment. So come on people, give this show a break.
