Best show on Tv
I ended up watching OZ as probably many others: I opened the tv on one monday-tuesday night and there was "nothing on" (really surprising: the clock was around 1 at night.)I wasn't instantly hooked: it took me couple of weeks. But after the Ryan O'Reily-Dr. Nathan storyline have watched every episode and the last couple of months I've done nothing else that expected the next episode. I just got so hooked on the show. So what's so excellent in the show? Everything. There is wonderful acting, GREAT srorylines, characters that are just perfect and of course the cold reality of the show. One thing I really like is this realism: There are no stupid heros that shouldn't be in prison. Everyone there's a criminal and deserves to be there. This doesn't mean they are some emotionaless robots: they also have feelings. Just watch the way ruthless killer Ryan O'Reily takes care of his retarted brother. Or the Beecher-Keller affair. This show can offer you a peek to the prison life,or at least as close as you can show on tv.Because it's done for cable you can say the f-word and show violence(it would be kind of stupid if the prisoners said "oh darn" or tried to solve their fights in a nice game of poker..)So the strong language and shocking deaths are justified, but may not be suitable for younger audience. But for older people, this is the best thing American tv can offer you.
