Oz is about the daily events inside a prison. In the series you get to follow Augustus Hill (Harold Perrineau, Jr.), our wheelchair-bound friend, who takes us through the daily life in Emerald City, a cell block in Oz. During the 6 seasons all aspects of life in a correctional facility are explored, from the violence, drugs, sex, and wars between gangs. The main gangs in Oz are: The Aryan Brotherhood, lead by white supremacist Vernon Schillinger (J. K. Simmons); the Muslims, lead by Kareem Said (Eamonn Walker); the Homeboys lead by Simon Adebisi (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje), Kenny Wangler (J. D. Williams) and Poet (muMs); the Others; the Italians, lead by Antonio Nappa and Chucky Pancamo; the Latinos lead by Miguel Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo), Raoul Hernandez (Luis Guzman) and Enrique Morales; the Irish, lead by Ryan O'Reily; and the Gays.

There's always something going on between the gangs and even though Warden Leo Glynn (Ernie Hudson) and the cell block manager McManus (Terry Kinney) try to stop it with all methods, nothing seems to prevent it.

I'm addicted to this show, just finished season 3.

kakature (Aug 08, 2012)

Season 1, 2 and 3 were great. Season 4 and 5 were not that good. 6 was again better.

But man that finale, worst finale ever in any TV show probably. Goddammit.

Great show that isn't really watched much now because it came out before all those other great HBO shows. It kind of got lost after that. I highly recommend it, for many reasons.

It starred dozens of people that made it big elsewhere, it was a brutal, premium channel worthy show, and it featured very high end drama. Along with that, it was fast paced and moved the seasons right along.

If you run out of HBO shows, from later on, to watch, then check this one out. It is as good as many of the ones that came around later.

best show ever by far

Amazing show...really intense at times but very good overall.

It also portrayed muslims very respectfully which is a rarity in most media these days.
