The series is well known for the 'Prisoner' curse. As many of the shows actors were unable to find other acting roles after they finished up on the series. Philip Hyde who played Rodney took on one more acting role before retiring from acting. Many other actors died at young ages and many others refused to go events the show had arranged. Many never spoke to their Prisoner colleagues again and many returned to theatre. See more »
During some scenes where a prisoner is speaking with a legal representative an officer is present, this is fixed in the later seasons as a prisoner has the right to see their lawyer alone. See more »
In the version shown by Channel 5 in the UK, episode 601, there was a cut of around 20 seconds when Wendy is threatening the women. She says, "Same goes for the rest of you scabs. Lou wasn't too rapt when she heard you broke the strike so I hear [from here onward, it was cut] (to Nancy) Oh what are you looking so scared about? You're name on the list is it? Eh? I wouldn't bet my boots on big chief Moron doing anything to help yous lot. He's too full of himself to worry about you lot. You should have known what side your bread was buttered on girls! Oh don't tell me [this is where the cut ended] Bird Brain's got something to say!" See more »
I first came across Prisoner on TV and i watched the first 2 episodes and i was hooked from there. I went online and started ordering the DVDs of the whole series and since acquiring the complete series on DVD i have watched the complete series. Well let me tell you "wow" what a great show, never a dull moment and action packed with great story lines.
I can't recommend this show enough, if you haven't seen it and you are interested, watch it you won't be disappointed I promise you. Its one of the best Australian television shows ever.
Watch it 5 stars
