The Prisoner Blu-Ray: Advice Needed

Post by Simon36 »

Hello all,

It’s time I got The Prisoner, as I haven’t watched it in years, but I see that there are now two different blu-Ray releases of it. does anyone have any insights into which is the better purchase? All suggestions welcome.

I'm pretty sure the same HD masters from the original release were used in the new set. As far as I know the older release had fancier packaging with a book but as far as I can tell the 2019 release is just as good. Not an expert on these things so maybe someone can give a definitive answer. The only isssue is that the audio is EXTREMELY quiet on the blu rays and I cannot seem to fix it in the settings but I might be doing something wrong.

Don't know if this was on the original release, but the 2019 release includes a few episodes of DANGER MAN in HD so I think it's worth it plus the extras. I believe they is commentary for a episode or two but I'll need to check.

Unless I’m missing something, they seem to have different documentaries on, and the recent one doesn’t have the episode commentaries. Is this correct? The 2019 one on every site lists a few extras and the says “and much more” which is exasperating!

Well it's really up to you! If you want just the episodes with minimal extras (I haven't checked all of the discs out only seen a few episodes) then buy the 2019 set. Not sure what documentary is better so I can't comment on it.
