Oz Season 2
4.0 out of 5 stars Oz Season 2, 22 Sep 2014
Oz Season 2 starts with the aftermath of the season 1 finale and its effects on the inmates. This season is even darker than the first and possibly more graphic. The humour comes from two old timers who are building an escape tunnel which provides a nice distraction from the more serious storylines including a very controversial child molesting priest and his redemption which to be frank for me was a character I could not sympathize with which is saying something as so far in this series their has been moments of sympathy I have given towards even the most sadistic of inmates. This season shows that even though various fractions are out to destroy one another , seemingly completely evil… Read more
Oz Season 1
Oz is a brutal, unflinching and often emotional portrayal of life on the inside, where segregation, rape, drugs and death rule. Newcomer Tobias Beecher gives the audience a look at a man who struggles to adjust to the dark age belief system amongst the imates, while Ernie Hudson plays the governor of Oz who struggles to control the prisoners after recent law changes.

An excellent follow up to the first season if not better. The continuing trials and tribulations as witnessed by Pullo and Vorenus is enthralling. Again the series has little action as far as the battle scenes go but amazingly you don't find yourself saying 'is that it?' as to be honest this show is driven by plot and political speech over action which intriguingly works here. Atia is still the villainous lady of the piece and manages to hold her own with the heavy male orientated storylines. I like to think that the theories of a certain character in the last episode is indeed true as I'd really like to see a series 3 one day be made. It was a show cut well before its time.
