Product Description

Complete third 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. Episodes comprise: 'The Truth and Nothing But...', 'Napoleon's Boney Parts', 'Legs', 'Unnatural Disasters', 'U.S. Male', 'Cruel and Unusual Punishments', 'Secret Identities' and 'Out 'o Time'.

From Amazon.co.uk

A volatile men-in-prison soap opera, fueled by testosterone and lubricated by blood, HBO's Oz is addictive viewing. The third season of the most violent show on cable TV, set in a cage of concrete and steel and glass, opens with echoes of violence past. Miguel Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo) is in solitary confinement for brutally blinding a guard, one-time drug lord Simon Adebissi (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) mourns for his murdered father, and Tobias Beecher (Lee Tergesen) nurses bones broken by Aryan Brotherhood leader Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) and a heart broken by the betrayal of Keller (Law and Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni). Their stories of vengeance, redemption, and forgiveness anchor this season.

The show races through each episode with a driving pace that only intensifies the ferocity. But for all the show's physical brutality, the most affecting violence is emotional, from the strange and savage love affair between Beecher and Keller to the escalating war of terror between Beecher and Schillinger. On a lighter note, this season marks the debut of both Miss Sally and new prison CO Sean Murphy (Robert Clohessy), whose understated strength is too often overlooked in the face of the show's more explosive personalities. Season 3 ends pitched on a powder keg, with the fuse in the hands of the show's most ferocious, unpredictable character. It's the kind of promise that will have you waiting for season 4. --Sean Axmaker

Ultra-violent prison drama Oz shows no sign of relenting in this shocking third season visit to Emerald City.

After blinding a prison officer to please crime boss El Cid in season two, Miguel Alvarez rots in solitary where he is tormented, beaten and starved until his mental health begins to deteriorate. The homeboys continue to clash with the Italians and Hispanics over the lucrative drugs trade and Beecher returns to Emerald City following his horrific beating at the hands of Schillinger and Keller. Meanwhile the scheming O'Reilly enters his slow witted brother Cyril in the prison boxing championships and the psychotic Simon Adebisi decides to quietly take back his position as the ruthless king of Oz after his apparent redemption in season two.

The thing that makes Oz so great is that all the characters on both sides of the bars are so well developed. Themes of crime and redemption are examined from different angles which keeps Oz a cut above.

OZ is a remarkable series. HBO's first drama series, it tells the story of the Oswald State Penitentiary, a fictional prison in the USA, and across six seasons it charts the lives and deaths of inmates, prison guards and their families. It's a stunning series, better in some ways even than The Wire and you can't go far wrong if you dip your toe into OZ. It is extremely violent, brutally so, but it's a multi-layered tale with a heart. The main attraction for me when I first started watching OZ was the monologues of Augustus Hill. Hill acts as narrator and he provides context to everything that happens, has happened, or will happen in the prison. The word "great" is thrown around far too often when talking about tv drama, but OZ earns the tag.

I have just sent for the 4th series and cant wait to review this one as well

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!

I'm so into this show anyway but this seasons story line was intense. Great twists keep coming for a show that's set inside four walls. Really starting to get a sense of the outside life's of those in the show.

If haven't seen Oz it's well worth watching. Yes there are some dodgy plots but not many, and overall it keeps you hooked right until the very end. Great drama worth watching.
