All I can say is WOW! This series from HBO is a great one. Characters are nicely developed. Plot twists and surprises around everycorner. Kinda Strange getting attached to "criminals" Such as Beecher you just cant help to feel sorry for him. This is season 1 of what now is 5 and more to come. In the first season, there is a lot of tention between the gangs. with arrivals of new prisoners, it just builds. Ozwell maximum security prison has gen pop(general population) and a experiemental facility called em-city (emerald- city) the so called "good prisoners" go to em-city. The First season begins whith em-city already up in running. End has a dramatic cliff hanger ending. I can guarantee if you like prison movies...you will absolutely love this HBO series.

Tough to watch but worth it....

by K on 3/9/2003

I am not normally a fan of prison drama but I fell in love with the series within the first 10 minutes...The characters are real and flawed and impossible to ignore...while this can be a difficult series to watch it is well worth it...in the end you come away with quite sober thoughts regarding what it's like in our prison system today...completely worth watching with brillant characters matched by equally brilliant performances and story that you can't tear yourself away from Read More

Editors Note
Note The Oswald Maximum Security Prison has opened an experimental new ward reserved for especially dangerous criminals. This unit, Emerald City, focuses on rehabilitation, but the world inside is even more corrupt and violent than the mean streets where these inmates come from. Inside the walls there are also two sets of rules, those laid down by the warden and those understood by the racially divided prisoners.^This HBO series is full of gritty, violent imagery and deftly handles sensitive issues about the American Justice System. This collection chronicles the entire first season which culminates in an unforgettable takeover of the prison by the inmates. Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana created the gritty series. The acclaimed cast includes Rita Moreno, B.D. Wong, Ernie Hudson, and Lauren Velez. Eight one-hour episodes.
