Product Description

Second series of the gritty, thought-provoking prison drama from HBO. Set in the Emerald City experimental wing of Oswald (Oz) Correctional Facility - the series is a futuristic look at crime and punishment. Emerald City was set up with a pre-agreed amount of members of ten racial and social demographics (The Muslims, The Homeboys, The Aryans, The Bikers, The Italians, The Latinos, The Irish, The Gays, The Christians and The Others) to see whether they might be able to sort things out among themselves or at least to witness their attempts. In this second series, the prison is trying to return to normality after the riot, but the rivalry within the separate factions is heating up. Episodes include: 'The Tip', 'Ancient Tribes', 'Great Men', 'Losing Your Appeal', 'Family Bizness', 'Strange Bedfellows', 'Animal Farm' and 'Escape From Oz'.

From Amazon.co.uk

If the title of HBO's brutal prison drama suggests a fairy tale, be warned that this Oz lies on the other side of the rainbow. This gritty portrait of men behind bars is a testosterone-driven soap opera packed with murder, suicide, sadism, and savage battles for dominance in the concrete jungle. Season 2 opens in the wake of a prison riot that shut down the experimental cell block known as "Emerald City" among the inmates, but it doesn't take long to build a whole new head of steam after prison reformer Tim McManus (Terry Kinney) reopens the unit. The drug wars pit the Italians against the blacks, the Aryan Brotherhood re-establish their campaign of intimidation, and Alvarez is pushed to desperate measures when he's ousted by the new Latino leader (Luiz Guzmán). Even more volatile than the physical brutality (this season offers up a bloody blinding and a crucifixion) is the soul-crushing psychodrama played out between vicious Aryan leader Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) and Beecher (Lee Tergeson), the meek lawyer transformed into a drug-addicted wild man by prison's predatory world and seduced by cold-blooded killer Chris Keller (Law and Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni). Some the stories get lost in the thrilling runaway pacing, but at its best Oz's searing stories of men penned in and pushing back goes straight for the jugular and invariably draws blood.--Sean Axmaker

Format: DVD
The excellent and much overlooked 'Oz' has finally been released on region 2 and Season 2 is even more hard hitting than season 1.

After the terrible riot that brought the first series to a close, Emerald city is finally reopened. Most of the familiar faces survived the SWAT assault and have been languishing in solitary or general population ever since. This time McManus has identified all the rival factions (white supremacists, blacks, latinos, bikers, mafia etc....) and allowed five of each to reside in Emerald city like some twisted take on Noahs Ark. Of course, this racial melting pot is carnage waiting to happen and it's not long before the bodies begin to pile up.

Nino Shebettas' son Peter is determined to sieze control of the drug trade and kill the man responsible for his fathers death which unfortunately is the unstable Adebisi. Aryan leader Schillinger is up for parole and wants to avoid trouble which is going to difficult when Beecher is making it his business to scupper his chances of release. Kareem Said is still making waves for the governor and Alvarez is usurped as the Latino leader by the psychotic El Cid.

The series is excellent but very very violent. Even more so than series 1. It probably is a little on the extreme side but Oz offers a scary insight into prison life and should keep anyone who watches it on the straight and narrow, even if nothing else will.

Format: DVD
This series starts amidst the aftermath of the riot that occurred at the end of season 1. The police are called in to investigate the cause of the riot i.e. whether or not the prison staff or the prisoners were to blame. When it is ultimately decided no-one is to blame, it sparks off consequences which reverberate throughout the rest of the season, with some prisoners (led by Kareem Said) feeling that the justice system owes them. If anything this series is even more gripping than the last. The storylines are more hard-hitting, the dialogue and acting is sharper than ever, and you find yourself becoming more and more engrossed in the lives of the prisoners and the prison staff. Moreover, this season marks the introduction of one of Oz's most infamous criminals, Chris Keller, and the start of his ill-fated relationship with Beecher.
Overall Oz is one of the finest TV series to come out of America, and season 2 holds it own. I would definitely recommend this!

As with the first season, the writing and acting are first rate. This is a compelling series and well worth watching if you've enjoyed other HBO productions. For some, the violence and sexuality may be a bit too explicit; however, nothing in this series is ever gratuitous. I found myself genuinely involved with these characters--on both sides of the bars--and was sorry to the series end.

Watch and enjoy!

Having see the first series to this somewhat epic prison drama, I was compelled to buy the second and third series. I have to say that the directors of this unpredictable and invigorating series, certainly brings the audience 'up to date' with contemporary prison systems that house a plethora of good and bad inmates alike. Narrated and fronted by the poetical actor Harold Perrineau, makes introduction to 'who' the inmates are and their crimes throughout the first and second series, though is waxing lyric about crime and moral judgement as he spins round in his suspended wheelchair, he is both a positive distraction and a disciple, if you can keep up with the momentum!. Takes a little getting into the mindset of a criminal, even as the series unveils itself, characters are far more complex as well as the relationships that are forged on the inside, yet definitely keeps you on your toes - despite the pacing of some scenes that can allude the viewer if they like well scripted crime genre.

I have loved watching this series. Another great triumph for HBO! I love that they aren't afraid to make programmes that push the boundries of American TV. My boyfriend who had no interest in watching Oz become instantly hooked and now can't wait for me to buy the next series on DVD. This is quite a violent look at prision life so if you don't like violence then it's not something you'll like. But otherwise I would definately recommend it!

Violent, nasty and gratuitously so. I felt, even though this is old now, that there was a desire to shock. All of that said the story lines and character development and just wonderful and it made for compelling viewing. If you are at all easily offended then dont watch this but if you enjoy incredible story lines and great acting watch away.

Brilliant - great performances and if you dont recognise half the cast now you dont watch tv!! Not afraid to pull its punches and so good to watch this without the falling asleep problem associated with Channel 4's insane scheduling when this was first shown!

Watch and enjoy

Season 2 is more character driven than plot driven, which is no bad thing, but season 1 had an edge to it. The writing in season 2 is not as tight as 1 either, but still worth a watch.
