Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Series Online Free – OZ chronicles McManus’ (Terry Kinney) efforts to control the inmates of Em(erald) City as well as the drug trade and the violence. There have been many groups of inmates during the run of the show and not everybody makes it out alive. There are the gangstas (Adebisi, Wangler, Redding, Poet, Keene, Supreme Allah), Muslims (Said, Arif, Hamid Khan), Italians (Pancamo, Nappa, Schiebetta), bikers (Hoyt), Aryans (Schillinger, Robson, Mark Mack), Christians (Cloutier, Cudney), Latinos (Alvarez, Morales, Guerra, Hernandez), gays (Hanlon, Cramer), and a pile of others (the O’Riley brothers, Keller, Stanislovsky, etc.). And a great “everyman” character called Beecher offers a good look at a normal man who made one tragic mistake. Besides the regular inmates, there are guest stars such as Method Man, Luke Perry, Master P, Treach, etc. and a bunch of prison staff doctors (Dr. Nathan), a nun/psychologist (Sister Peter Marie), a bunch of guards–some honest, some crooked–and, of course, the warden, Leo Glynn. The whole thing is narrated and held together by inmate Augustus Hill, who provides the show with context and some sense of theme, and ties everything together nicely. Plot: The daily lives of prisoners in Emerald City, an experimental unit of the Oswald Maximum Security Prison where ingroups – Muslims, Latinos, Italians, Aryans – stick close to their mutual friends and terrorizes their mutual enemies.

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.

Though flawed in the second half, together with „The Sopranos”, “Oz” is one of the finest shows TV had to offer
At the time it was released, „Oz” had a lot going for it. It came out during a time when one really wasn’t sure what to watch on TV anymore. Most series and show had become stagnant, repetitive, literally parodies of putrid soap-operas and so one often opted not to turn it on at all and rather waste one’s time with other activities; like reading books and spending time with friends and family.

Then came “Oz”, pulling us right back to the temple of the holy square. “Oz” gave us what we had never expected from television entertainment: not only talking violence, foul language and male nudity, but decent acting and interesting story lines. It gave us characters that literally deserved to rot in prison, psychopaths and scum that you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley, but at the same time kept us interested and made us sympathize with them, even. In that sense “Oz” was a blueprint for “The Sopranos”, which would conquer the small screen a short while later.

By the middle of season two it had become pretty clear what to expect: every member of the cast would be raped and shanked at least once, get a 180-degree character-makeover and it would become abundantly clear that it was just a matter of time until he (and occasionally she) would get killed off in some imaginative way.

During the final two seasons “Oz” began to reek of desperation. After all, there are only so many stories one can pull out of a prison and only so many ideas a TV-writer can pull out of a certain orifice. Rather than reinventing, the show began to copy itself, whole story lines were literally repeated, became as improbable as could be and one could literally smell the anxiety to keep the ratings up. But the avid fan still stuck with the show, always hoping for those moments of brilliance that became fewer and further in between.

Even if the story would become progressively soap-operish, we could always depend on the actors: the characters, be they full-time or guest-stars, were always interesting, their background story always colourful (to put it cynical) and, as said, their demises were generally imaginative.

Despite all flaws and shortcomings, especially during the second half, “Oz” was all that TV could and should be, in my humble opinion second only to iconic “The Sopranos” and certainly worthy eight points from ten.
