I was so looking forward to this series. Though the credits for OZ clearly state this series is closed caption, it is NOT! This happens too often. Frustrating.

Hello!!??.... The snivelling, petty personal dramas of a bunch of hardened criminals!!?.... Like, am I supposed to care!!??

In this (supposedly) "realistic" look at tough prison-life - I couldn't help noticing that it was just a crew of young, good-looking, and fit convicts.... (Oh, yeah?).... And, where the heck were all of the dumpy, ugly ones and the real old-timers? Eh?.... Yeah! Where on earth were they?

All-in-all - I have to say that "Oz" was a "seen-it-all-before" bore.

Yeah. OK - I only watched the 9 episodes from Season One. But I figured that that should have been the best season of all where the scenarios were fresh and entertainment-worthy.

Anyway - I can't believe that this one-note TV show actually lasted for 6 seasons. I understand that for DVD release these episodes were edited due to frequent, male, frontal-nudity. Well - If you ask me - I highly doubt that seeing the penises of a bunch of convicts would have improved this predictable program one bit.

Very unusual, funny, and has action too. However, a lot of the stuff that happens wouldn't be tolerated in real life it makes for a good story. Lots of MALE frontal nudity which is a switch. I think homophobes best not view this.

I've seen this series before, and the library version is extremely edited, so it lacks the OOMPH of the unadulterated version, which I would have scored much higher.
