Amazing quality, a must buy for any fan of The Prisoner.,
This review is from: The Prisoner: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I bought The Prisoner on Blu-ray yesterday. Contrary to the one star reviews that were written before the Blu-ray release by people that had not seen the Blu-ray set yet, I can definitively say the picture and sound quality is top notch and is 100x better than the previous US dvd releases. (which I also own and compared it too.)
There really is no comparison here. The previous dvd's were muddy and the picture quality was severely lacking. The image on the Blu-ray release is crisp, clear and looks absolutely amazing. It looks like it could have been filmed yesterday.
I think if I had one complaint it would be that the fifth disc that contains many of the extras is a regular DVD and not in HD. However knowing that I would still have bought this set and been completely happy with my purchase.
The Prisoner has never looked or sounded better.

I have been told that the UK release from the licensee there has a large book on the series and an Easter Egg interview with Patrick McG but I have this A&E release & extremely happy with the quality. Haven't heard the term 'Easter Eggs" mentioned anywhere for a longtime such that I forgot about these gems on early DVDs.

I own the original DVD Mega set. Can you tell me if all of the bonus material have been ported over to the Bly Ray release?
Thanking you in advance! ;-)

"Do you know if the Blu-Ray version has closed captioning?"
Yes, but it doesn't always match-up 100% with the dialogue.
