  Prisoner (TV series) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The series was produced by the Reg Grundy Organisation and ran on Network Ten for 692 episodes from 1979 to 1986.
The first major story arc-defining event in the series is the turf war for top dog status between Bea Smith and Franky Doyle, culminating in a prison riot in which Meg Jackson is held hostage, and her husband, prison psychiatrist Bill Jackson (Don Barker), is stabbed to death by inmate Chrissie Latham (Amanda Muggleton).
Because the series was shown on all ITV companies late at night (just before closedown at first, then as the first programme of night-time programming with the advent of 24-hour broadcasting in the late 1980s), it became a favourite of the local continuity announcers.

Using the latest weapons and Vietnam-tempered military tactics, the 5-man SWAT team was the elite police force brought in during desperate times.
SWAT was one of those early cop shows that featured lots of fast-paced, heart-pounding action which in hindsight also meant a lot of violence.
But the teamwork that would usually get SWAT through the TV series was barely there in the movie version.

The only problem is the studios are aware that neither series took off until their second and third seasons...that's why they are hestitant to release them in season sets.
I think every series if it's put to DVD should be released in airdate order simply because if you're a fan and spending over a hundred dollars for a set, then you want them in the order they originally ran.
The original Star Trek series is the prime example for editing to the point where Paramount chopped the show by 12 to 16 minutes in some cases.

So, u can't compare Jeun Sun swatting away 5 dragons to Yiu Chi being injure by 1 dragon, because Jeun Sun was in good health when the dragons attack him while Yiu Chi was already heavily injured by the arrow.
