Rated TBC by the BBFC


First series of the gritty, thought-provoking prison drama from HBO. Set in the Emerald City experimental wing of Oswald (Oz) Correctional Facility - the series is a futuristic look at crime and punishment. Emerald City was set up with a pre-agreed amount of members of ten racial and social demographics (The Muslims, The Homeboys, The Aryans, The Bikers, The Italians, The Latinos, The Irish, The Gays, The Christians and The Others) to see whether they might be able to sort things out among themselves or at least to witness their attempts. There's no shortage of shankin' cussin', fightin' and lovin', though - the prime ingredients in any prison drama. Episodes comprise: 'The Routine', 'Visits, Conjugal and Otherwise', 'God's Chillin', 'Capital P', 'Straight Life', 'To Your Health', 'Plan B' and 'A Game of Checkers'.
