  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
After managing to escape from prison in Season One and barely staying one step ahead of the law in most of the second year, Michael Scofield (Miller) was captured yet again at the end of Season Two. Now Prison Break: Season Three finds not only Scofield, but also sleazeball T-Bag (Knepper), former guard Brad Bellick (Williams), and FBI Agent Mahone (Fichtner) all inside the same Panamonian hell hole. This time it's up to Michael's brother Lincoln (Purcell) to be the mastermind and help break him out of jail. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
There are better-looking TV shows on DVD, but the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 picture generally delivers sharp images with deep black levels and balanced fleshtones. There is a distracting amount of noise in darker scenes, and near-black information is lost in the darkest areas. Colors are naturally saturated, and contrast seems accurate. The image can be digitally harsh at times, and noticeable
